    I’m really surprised that “Somewhere,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and “Unstoppable” aren’t on Tarantino’s list.

    Oh yeah, and where the fuck is “Machete” and “Predators?” I’m guessing he purposely excluded films directed by his personal friends from the list – I can think of no other reasons.

    Conspicuously missing from Quentin T.’s list is “Inception,” a film I didn’t much care for. Perhaps other directors aren’t really that wild about it either.

    “Perhaps other directors aren’t really that wild about it either.”

    Bit of a rash projection, Frank. One may as well say, “Knight and Day was a surprising inclusion — perhaps other directors are wild about it too.”
