Starting in 2010, Quentin Tarantino has been charting his favorite films of the year - taking last year off to finish up a little project called Django Unchained. A mix of critically acclaimed fare that normally takes home hardware come Academy Award's season, as well as more genre fare that serves as a quasi glimpse into the mind and tastes of the storied director, this year's list is once again as eclectic as previous installments that included titles like The Social Network, Toy Story 3, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Attack the Block, and Warrior. Quentin Tarantino's favorite flicks can be seen below along with a synopsis.

1. Afternoon Delight (Jill Soloway) Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny.

2. Before Midnight (Richard Linklater) We meet Jesse and Celine nine years on in Greece. Almost two decades have passed since their first meeting on that train bound for Vienna.

3. Blue Jasmine (Woody Allen) A New York socialite, deeply troubled and in denial, arrives in San Francisco to impose upon her sister. She looks a million, but isn't bringing money, peace, or love...

4. The Conjuring (James Wan) Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.

5. Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg) Luke and Kate are co-workers at a Chicago brewery, where they spend their days drinking and flirting. They're perfect for each other, except that they're both in relationships.

6. Frances Ha (Noah Baumbach) A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles.

7. Gravity (Alfonso Cuarón) A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space.

8. Kick Ass 2 (Jeff Wadlow) The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.

9. The Lone Ranger (Gore Verbinski) Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.

10. This Is The End (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg) While attending a party at James Franco's house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse.
