Quentin Tarantino's Top 10 List of Fave 2013 Movies is BIZARRE

Disney Disney

What are your top 10 favorite movies of the year so far? Whatever they are, we'd be willing to bet not even half of 'em sync up with Quentin Tarantino's little listoid.

Tarantino's a notoriously off-kilter dude, sure, but he's also a two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter and a well-respected (albeit strange) director, so you might think he's at least somewhat on the "12 Years a Slave"-"Fruitvale Station"-"The Butler"-"Inside Llewyn Davis"-ish bandwagon, but noooooo.

Not. even. close.

Just wait 'til you get a look at some of these crazytown title choices (brace for the anomaly votes, Academy)!

Meanwhile, we'll try to make a 'lil sense out of why it is that these are his picks (where possible), since he didn't offer up his own reasons when passing this list along to his fans.

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Tops Tepid Box Office

Lee Daniels' The Butler The Weinstein Company

There were four new releases at the box office this weekend, but only one of them co-starred media machine Oprah Winfrey, meaning "Lee Daniels' The Butler" easily cruised to the top spot on the charts with an estimated $25 million according to Film.com.

Meanwhile, the other three new releases flopped to varying degrees. "Kick-Ass 2" was a mild flop with an estimated $13.6 million, while Ashton Kutcher's "Jobs" was a major flop, bringing in just $6.7 million. And "Paranoia" turned out to be one of the biggest flops in ages, as Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman combined managed just $3.6 million, missing the top ten entirely and earning an epically horrible 4% Rotten Tomatoes score along the way.

For a full run down of this weekend's box office figures, including numbers for returning hits "We're the Millers" and "Elysium," head to Film.com.

jOBS Open Road

Your mother always told you that math class would be important, she probably just didn't envision it coming in handy when you're picking which new releases to see this weekend.

Luckily, we here at NextMovie have a slightly less numerical view of math. We work better with pictures. That's why we've broken down this week's new releases, from the entrepreneurial "jOBS" to the surreal nature of "Austenland," into simple equations.

GALLERY: 9 Super-Hot Hit-Girls

Never fear: THE CHARACTER MAY BE UNDERAGE, BUT THESE COSPLAYERS ARE NOT.

It may seem somewhat strange that such a, er, young superheroine would inspire cosplayers to strut their sexy stuff, but Hit-Girl is a force of nature that transcends any and all boundaries. In celebration of Mindy Macready's triumphant return to the big screen in "Kick-Ass 2," we've gathered a few pics of some lovely young ladies who've been inspired by her ass-kicking alter-ego.

"Avengers assemble, a**hole." — Hit-Girl

Our Superheroes Ranked From Least to Most Patriotic

Iron Patriot Marvel

One of the best things about "Iron Man 3" was the debut of Iron Patriot, which is basically a suit of Iron Man armor painted to look like the American flag. Seriously, just when you thought Iron Man couldn't get any cooler, this thing comes along, smashing evil ideologies with the fist of superhero righteousness. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Really, Rhodey's a one-man Fourth of July party in that get-up. Which got us thinking: who might be the ultimate Independence Day superhero? Get More »

Universal Pics. Universal Pics.

Jim Carrey might have reported for duty as the zany (and in desperate need of an upgraded dental plan) Colonel Stars and Stripes in Universal's second round of teen superhero a**-kickery — and, presumably, collected many shillings for the job — but this weekend, the gent had a total Grinch-goes-good moment with his heart growing two sizes too big to support the kinda slashin', bashin' and dashin' going down in "Kick-Ass 2."
