Oh, you didn’t think Quentin Tarantino pitching an idea for a new Star Trek movie to J.J. Abrams that he might end up directing couldn’t get any stranger? Sit with me for a moment, my friends. Here, I made you some nice cocoa. Marshmallows are there on the table if you like. Careful now, it’s a bit hot.

Everything about this was unexpected, of course. But one of the things that made it especially surprising was the part about Tarantino possibly directing. Not only has he never made a big blockbuster type movie—he’s only made eight movies total with a ninth on the way, and there’s been whispers of him potentially retiring from filmmaking after his 10th—but each and every one of his films has been R-rated. Star Trek movies, as you’re likely aware, are not R-rated.

But never fear, Tarantino fans. As it turns out, even Star Trek is R-rated when it comes from Quentin. In fact, it was one of his requirements.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

A good “is it April Fools’ Day already?” story is always fun, and this one is a doozie. It’s being reported that Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill writer and director Quentin Tarantino has come up with what’s described simply as “a great idea” for a new Star Trek movie, and he has pitched that idea to producer J.J. Abrams, who directed a reboot of the Trek cinematic franchise in 2009 and a sequel in 2013.

If that’s not unbelievable enough for you, it gets even crazier. The report says that if all goes well, Tarantino could even end up directing this new Star Trek movie.

Quentin Tarantino

There’s been a lot of speculation that Quentin Tarantino‘s next project would revolve around Charles Manson and his murders. But there hasn’t been anything to verify it or at least give us a hint that it would be about the infamous cult leader. Now it appears that all the reporting and speculation has been wrong. Well, at least not entirely wrong.

Based on a new interview that director gave, Tarantino’s developing film would be about 1969, the year when the Manson Family murders started to appear in headlines. There is also word that multiple studios are now vying for the right to distribute the untitled film. More on the story below.

Whether or not Quentin Tarantino is telling us the truth about his retirement he’s been pondering after his tenth film remains to be seen, but if it is true, we’re going to have to enjoy every last minute of it because he has just announced what his ninth film will be about.

For his “penultimate” film, Tarantino has decided that it will focus on the Manson family murders. Quite a subject, and one that will probably have another unique take. Check out more about the film, below.

Disney Wants To Reimagine Classic ‘Star Wars’ Parody ‘Hardware Wars’

Star Wars parody Hardware Wars

In 1977, the world was amazed and delighted by the now iconic film Star Wars. The following year, a short parody film by the name of Hardware Wars found its way into the hearts of millions. With characters by the name of Fluke Starbucker, Augie “Ben” Doggie, Princess Anne-Droid, Ham Salad, and Chewchilla the Wookiee Monster, the short film’s cast was an obvious tongue-in-cheek referencing to the original Star Wars roles. Household equipment made up the vast majority of props in the parody, hence the name. Hilarious and goofy, the video lampoon was and is a cult classic to this day. As a matter of fact, I just watched it again and laughed all the way through.

Miramax

“Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don’t give a f*ck how crazy they are!”

Twenty years ago, my father took a young 13-year old to the movie theater to see From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie was written by Quentin Tarantino who I had recently dubbed my idol after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time, and directed by Robert Rodriguez who did Desperado, another of my early favorites. It has since become something of a legend to us, and the phrase “don’t tell Mom” is part of the family vernacular. So when Fathom Events and Miramax put From Dusk Till Dawn back in the theaters, I knew I had to carry on family tradition and take my 12-year-old son to it. Sure, From Dusk Till Dawn is very rated-R. But this was a rite of passage.

Fathom Events: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ In Theaters For 20th Anniversary

From Dusk Till Dawn Quentin Tarantino George Clooney

Twenty years ago, just before my 14th birthday, my father took me to see From Dusk Till Dawn in the movie theater. The phrase “Don’t tell your mother” is now part of our family lexicon. Thanks to Fathom Events and Miramax, From Dusk Till Dawn will return to theaters in the United States for 2 days on Sunday, November 6th and Wednesday, November 9th for its 20th anniversary. The theatrical screenings will include an exclusive brand new Q&A with director Robert Rodriguez and writer/star Quentin Tarantino hosted by film critic and host of The Treatment, Elvis Mitchell.

Born out of the twisted minds of its writer/director, From Dusk Till Dawn begins as an action movie about a pair of murderous bank robbers, The Gecko Brothers, who are trying to get over the U.S./Mexican border while being chased by Texas Rangers. Seth, played by George Clooney in his first starring role, and younger, crazier brother Richie (Tarantino) leave a trail of blood, bodies, and fast food wrappers before huddling up at a hotel where they see their salvation: a winnebago. The owner is former preacher Jacob (Harvey Keitel), who is traveling with his two kids Kate (Juliette Lewis) and Scott (Ernest Liu). After surviving a tense border search, they hit their rendezvous spot, a grimy Mexican biker bar, The Titty Twister. The bar however is a front for a ring a bloodthirsty vampires led by Santanico Pandemonium (Salma Hayek).
