    I kind of agree, but mainly because I'd rather Trek stayed in T.V. I'd certainly prefer to see what Tarantino makes of it than another bloody Kelvinverse film.

    I'd watch it. I'd bet more people would watch it than those that watched Star Trek Beyond. But Paramount isn't going to take that bet, especially since QT is pretty expensive. The chances of QT movie happening are the same as that of Star Trek 4 (or 14), that is zero to none.

    Nope. Star Trek has had profanity ever since TOS.

    And contrary to headlines, Quentin never said the movie would be "full of" or "filled with" profanity. Someone asked if there would be profanity and he said yes.

    I've never seen a Quentin Tarantino film all the way through. What is his appeal exactly?

    dialogue. he's better at dialogue scenes than anyone since Bogdanovitch, in my opinion. He's good at pacing as well and in general just a great movie director. I haven't loved everything he's done but he's good.

    I know Pulp Fiction is the one everyone goes to first, but I recommend Jackie Brown for someone who hasn't sat through an entire film. Personally, I think its his best.

    "Full of" or "filled with" may mean one thing to Quentin and another to some other director.

    Anyway, I am not sure if I have seen a movie that QT directed. (I usually don't make a point of noting who directed the movies that I watch.) I saw From Dusk Till Dawn. I think he wrote the script but didn't direct it. It was a good movie.

    If QT does direct a ST movie, I would be interested and I would be curious to see what kind of spectacle he creates.

    I'll believe it on the first day of filming. Remember when Star Trek 4 had a director, actors, locations and was weeks from filming and then didn't happen?

    As for Trek through a Tarantino lens, sure why not? Trek has been everything over the years. This script is supposedly some bonkers space horror thing according to Karl Urban. Get ready for lingering shots of Uhura's feet:lol:

    I've seen a lot of comments like this and all it makes me think is that apparently IDIC does not extend to the creation of Star Trek stories. It's sad, really. If someone doesn't want to see it, they don't have to. If they see it and don't like it, that's their right. It seems only reasonable and, dare I say, logical to hold judgment until it is done. But to pre-judge and hope that someone's imagination and creativity does not come to fruition? Yikes.

    Actually, let’s keep Shatner away from Star Trek, since he’s a far worse director than Tarantino. ;)

    Wasn't IDIC talking about the existence individual beings and treating them decently and appropriately, not formats and standards or "Bibles" that make a franchise its own unique self and not any other franchise or, worse, any generic blob of television?

    In other words, I opine there could be a contextual difference.

    And, yes, Trek has taken many forms. Most forms of which still feel like genuine Star Trek at their core.

    And, yes, it is possible for the same set of producers and showmakers to have the magic touch for one series but then trying to make others and it's (not good). Look at what happened to the X-Men movie series. The first was okay, the second was perfect.The third had the cast and a great potential with plot items but the new people making it didn't understand the traditional format Singer brought in, neither did they reinvent it to make it as strong but still feeling relevant to the franchise as a whole. The series never recovered, even Days of Future's Past felt like 2 hours of fanservice and trying to use the time travel cliche to change history to pretend X3 didn't exist and unlike other franchises, at least X3's characters didn't feel apocryphal to how they were built up - or any that U can remember right now.

    But it's not like X-Men had its own commandment that is analogous to IDIC... or prequels, since most of those screw up more than what they try to piece in but that doesn't mean it's impossible to do. Usually what becomes a prequel isn't strong enough on its own, hence those series starting long after the events prequels fumble in explaining took place.

    Tangential, partially, those X-Men movies clearly had formats from script to direction that made sure it felt like what one expects from an X-Men movie franchise. Change any aspect around too much, without any confidence or verve, and the audience might be alienated.

    If we take IDIC at its face value, I then propose a dare. One that IDIC's current proponents might end up rethinking their support of, not that it's difficult to come up with examples so absurd...


    Or, to turn a really long post into a teensy yet far more boring one one, if we take IDIC at its face value, that means we have to accept those who don't like all variations of Star Trek along with every other combination. QED.

    Shatner isn't in the news threatening to make a Star Trek film

    I feel a need to disagree. Paramount kept reducing funds and saying the movie had to be a comedy because that worked for Trek IV. And Trek V definitely tried being more epic in scale and scope than its four predecessors had not. If nothing else, the attempts at character depth (apart from the comedy routines) were the biggest by far the franchise had to that point, especially for the big three. The cinematography in some scenes are rich and lush; the Yosemite landscape was and still is breathtakingly done. The second half of the movie, stupid antigravity boots in the turboshaft scene aside, is how the whole movie should have felt - with a sense of claustrophobia, takeover, mystery, and danger. Lawrence Luckinbill helps steal the show as Sybok, especially when David Warner isn't around (and Warner did much with such a secondary, bit character.) It's more a missed opportunity than being legitimately dire. Trek V is a lot better than a lot of 2009 and 2013 combined, not because 2009 and 2013 were far more fanwanky and superficial than V could ever have tried to be.
