Quentin Tarantino's 'Fave Films of 2012' Contains Some Really Awful Movies

For a guy who makes some of this generation's most iconic and lauded films, Quentin Tarantino sure has some questionable taste in movies. Granted, he's an artiste, which means that he has to be very contrarian, whether that means hating movies people loved (not so much) or loving movies people hated (a lot of those on this list). For instance, he liked The Three Musketeers. A lot. It was his 11th favorite film, whereas it appeared to be most people's 11th least-favorite film. Of all time.

I'm not saying I'm the arbiter of good taste when it comes to films, so I'll just say that I think this list will raise some eyebrows among film lovers. 

But seriously, The Three Musketeers?
