"What is your favorite movie?". This is perhaps one of the most common questions when dating. They also love to ask famous directors this question. They definitely know a lot about good cinema. But, as a rule, they call solid classics, filmed a very, very long time ago. These are real treasures for cinema, but, let's be honest, today such old films are... difficult to watch. Anything fresh? Of course have! Let's look at the TOP 13 favorite films of Quentin Tarantino that were shot in the 21st century.

Royal Rumble (2000)

In 2009, Tarantino named Kinji Fukasaku's dystopian thriller his favorite film of the past 17 years.

Dogville (2003)

Quentin believes the script for Lars von Trier's thriller starring Nicole Kidman is "possibly one of the greatest ever written for film" and suggests that if it had been written for the theatre, it might have won a Pulitzer Prize.

Shaun of the Dead (2004)

In an interview, Tarantino admitted:

This is my favorite British film to come out since I started making films.

Oil (2007)

Paul Anderson's There Will Be Blood is called one of the best films of the 21st century, and Tarantino is no exception. He especially noted the firefighting scene and the film's music. And the Oscars awarded Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor and Robert Elswit for Cinematography.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009)

Unexpected choice! But, as it turned out, the director is not averse to watching romantic comedies on airplanes, and a scene from this film brought him to tears. The episode where Jennifer Garner's character gives Matthew McConaughey's character a camera for his birthday reminded Tarantino of the camera he was given as a child.

Enter the Void (2009)

The director called Gaspar Noe's psychedelic melodrama one of the best films of 2010. He especially noted the credits, which he considers one of the best in the history of cinema.

The Social Network (2010)

Tarantino called David Fincher's drama the best film of the 2010s:

It's the number one movie because it's the best, that's all!

The Skin I Live In (2011)

Tarantino has already called the film with Banderas one of his favorites, but this psychological thriller differs from the actor’s previous works.

Sweet Frances (2012)

In a 2015 interview, Tarantino named Noah Baumbach as one of the young directors that intrigues him the most. Greta Gerwig, who played the main role in this comedy, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Tarantino was so impressed by the film that he watched it three times in one weekend. He recognized it as the best film of 2015, and the post-apocalyptic action film by George Miller received six awards from the Oscars.

Dunkirk (2017)

Christopher Nolan's film competed for eight Oscars, winning three in technical categories. Quentin Tarantino also watched this picture three times.

West Side Story (2021)

Another unexpected film in Tarantino's collection is a musical romantic drama. He says there's a real old-school feel to this Steven Spielberg remake.

Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

Joseph Kosinski dedicated the action film to Tony Scott (Top Gun, Wrath), who was supposed to direct this film, but did not have time. Tarantino fromnoted that this picture with Tom Cruise is imbued with “love and respect for Tony in every frame.” Fans of high-quality American action films and Cruise's fearless characters will definitely appreciate Top Gun.
