Quentin Tarantino fanboys are drooling over the director's latest opus, the Brad Pitt World War II epic Inglourious Basterds, which hit's theaters Friday. Tarantino is the ultimate film geek, famous for having worked at a video store in the days before Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction catapulted him onto the A-list of Hollywood filmmakers. It's that geek side that is fully on display in this YouTube video posted yesterday, which has QT picking his 20 favorite films since 1990. Tarantino's #1 is the obscure Japanese film Battle Royale by director Kinji Fukasaku. After that, 2-20 are arranged alphabetically (though Dazed and Confused might be considered #2.) CL contributor Kevin Hopp is currently combing the Blockbuster in search of some of these titles, and he'll have more on this list next week.
