Quentin Tarantino Chooses His 2011 Top 11 (11 So As To Make Room for ‘Three Musketeers’, Duh)


Well, last night the Hollywood Foreign Press had their shot at naming the top films of 2011, and now it’s Quentin Tarantino’s turn to say, “Hold on, guys, you forgot The Three Musketeers!” Through fan site The Quentin Tarantino Archives, the director has posted his top 11 (or 12, technically) films of the last year, and while he hits such critically-praised picks as The Artist and Midnight in Paris, he also made room for such contrarian fare as Paul W.S. Anderson’s Three Musketeers and Kevin Smith’s Red State. He even added on an unordered “other films he liked” section just to make sure Green Lantern would at last be regarded alongside War Horse and above Drive, which Tarantino placed with Drive Angry on a lower-tier list labeled “nice try awards.” Sorry, kitschy, driving-based genre films, but you’ll have to add some intentional film scratches if you want Q.T.’s affections.

Here are the complete lists:

Milla Jovovich SHAMEs “SUMMIT” for Lack of ‘Three Musketeers’ Promotion


Sure, you may be aware that Three Musketeers is opening this weekend, but did you know that Three Musketeers is a “fun family film” and a “grt family adventure”? Milla Jovovich fears you do not, and she pins the blame squarely on Summit Entertainment. Questioning if the company is “resting on their laurels from ‘twilight’ n making no effort,” Jovovich took to Twitter to ask that we make Summit the ignoble pariah of the film distribution world, saying, among other things:

I think “summit” hve swept “3 Musketeers”, a grt family adventure film, under the rug in the US. Shame on them. SHAME ON YOU “SUMMIT”.

Summit has not posted an official responds to their public shaming, though it’s perhaps worth noting that three of their last four tweets have been promoting The Three Musketeers. As if a reminder to watch Orlando Bloom on NBC’s Today can wash away the scarlet letter of Milla Jovovich’s capitalized shaming.


Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom: “Three Musketeers” Mates

Paying a visit to her man as he worked away on the set of a new movie, Miranda Kerr was spotted alongside Orlando Bloom in Wuerzburg, Germany on Thursday (September 16).

The pregnant supermodel lovingly held and smooched her husband as he took a break from shooting “The Three Musketeers” at Residenz Wuerzburg.

And now that she’s prepping to be a mother, it seems as if Miss Kerr is getting plenty of tips from her fellow Victoria’s Secret mothers.

Adriana Lima told HollyBaby of Miranda and fellow preggers model Doutzen Kroes, “I have given them plenty of advice. But I am sure that they will be great moms.

She added, “You know they are very gentle and responsible. They are about to experience the most beautiful thing in life, and that is unconditional love.”

Orlando Bloom: Three Musketeers in Munich

Stepping out for a promotional appearance, Orlando Bloom was spotted at a photo call for “The Three Musketeers” in Munich, Germany today (August 20).

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” stud joined his cohorts Christoph Waltz, Milla Jovovich, and Mads Mikkelsen for the press event, though his mind was most assuredly on his new wife and soon-to-be-born child.

That’s right, as previously reported by GossipCenter, Orly and Miranda Kerr are expecting their first kid, with Kerr announcing that she’s four months pregnant.

Prior to her pregnancy, Miranda told press, “I think having children and pregnancy is a part of life. I look at how models like Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio have done it and made it a part of their lives.”
