Team America, Anything Else Among the Best Movies of the Past Seventeen Years, Claims Quentin Tarantino

If not for his fetish for movies that no one else likes, Quentin Tarantino wouldn't be Quentin Tarantino, we guess. So with this in mind, we share with you this video in which he counts down his twenty favorite movies since 1992, the year he became a director, with the release of Reservoir Dogs. Among his picks: Woody Allen's Jason Biggs–starring Anything Else, M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable, and Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Team America: World Police. His top choice is Japanese actioner Battle Royale, and he says The Matrix would have been No. 2 if its two sequels hadn't "ruined the whole mythology" for him. Also, he refers to Shyamalan as "M. Night Shamalamadingdong." Click for video and the full list.
