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.

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

Killing Season Millennium

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents. Get More »

Science! 'Kill Bill' Has a Bug Named After It Now

Here's something you probably didn't expect to find on your favorite movie site today: SCIENCE! (With a cinematic twist, of course.)

Scientists have recently discovered three new species of the "Cystomastacoides" genus of wasps. According to sci-news, the Cystomastacoides wasps are known for their deadly reproductive habits — basically, they put still-developing eggs inside other insects until the eggs slowly render their hosts either sterile or dead. Pretty gross, actually. But compared to the level of gore in Quentin Tarantino's movies... Get More »

Replacing All Guns in Movies With Thumbs Up Is Better Than Everything

Thumbs & Ammo Thumbs & Ammo

There are times when you kind of just have to tip your cap to the internet and give it a hearty round of applause. Or — better yet — a thumbs up. If you're feeling generous, like the Johns Rambo and McClane, maybe even a double thumbs up.

We're thankful for the internet today because of the photoshopping skills of the creator of Thumbs & Ammo, a website solely devoted to taking movie photo stills and photoshopping a thumbs up in place of a gun, as our brothers from another mother at Screenrant discovered this morning. That's it. Yes, that's the entire website. Sounds simple, right? That's because it is, and it's amazing. Get More »

The 10 Best Junket Interviews Ever

Mila Kunis BBC / YouTube

It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.

Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »

Blasphemy Alert! 'SNL' Unveils Quentin Tarantino's 'Djesus Uncrossed'

Hey guys, remember that hilarious batch of fake Quentin Tarantino posters we made up a couple weeks ago, highlighting all the historical revenge fantasies we wish Tarantino would film? Well, it looks like someone at "Saturday Night Live" must have been paying attention, because last night they actually filmed one of our ideas.

But even we couldn't have guessed at how damn funny "Djesus Uncrossed" would be.

Of course, we called our version "Biblical Proportions," but it's basically the same thing: Christoph Waltz plays a resurrected Jesus who sets out on a bloody rampage of revenge, aided by the greatest posse ever assembled.

Check it out, courtesy of NBC.com. And don't worry, "SNL," you're more than welcome to swipe our ideas any time you like.

Infographic: Every Tarantino Movie Death, and How They Died

infographic-a

Hey, have you ever noticed that there are a ton of people killed in every Quentin Tarantino movie? You have? Us, too. It would be interesting if someone took the time to sit through every one of his films and not only count the number of dead people, but tell us how they all died. If a cool graphic was made about it, all the better. Get More »

Quentin Tarantino Plans 'Rewritten History' Film ... Here Are Our Theories

You've got to hand it to Quentin Tarantino: The guy sure knows how to dispense some righteous justice. First he retroactively avenged the Holocaust with his history-warping "Inglorious Basterds" and then he put the smack down on slavery with his juicy pre-Civil War revenge fantasy "Django Unchained." There's just nothing quite so satisfying as seeing some of history's greatest injustices fixed through two hours of big screen slaughter.

And now we'll get one more; speaking to reporters at Sunday night's BAFTA winners press conference, Tarantino said, "This [rewritten history theme] begs a trilogy, it begs to have a third movie on this theme. I haven't decided about what yet, but I wouldn't be surprised."

Humanity has done so many horrific things over the past few millennia that there's literally no end to the number of revenge fantasies Tarantino could make. With that in mind, then, we dreamed up posters for some of the most egregious wrongs in history that are crying out for the Tarantino treatment. Get More »

Are You Suffering From 'Django Guilt?'

"Django Uncahined" is one of the most controversial films of the year for one simple reason: Any movie about slavery is, by default, one of the most controversial films of the year. Because, you know, slavery.

But any time there is controversy, that means there's also a great opportunity for comedy. And now the folks at Tomm Fondle have have put together their own response to "Django Unchained," which spoofs not the film itself, but rather society's reaction to the film.

So check it out. Because while some things are worth feeling guilty about, but you should never feel guilty about having a good laugh.
