Could Star Trek fans see a return of one of its most famous faces?
Following the news that Quentin Tarantino was working on a new idea for the franchise alongside J.J. Abrams, with plans to direct, Patrick Stewart has thrown an unlikely hat back into the intergalactic ring.
"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about," the iconic actor told The Hollywood Reporter, speaking from the sidelines of the Dubai International Film Festival, where he received an honorary award.
"But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much, and to be in a Tarantino film would give me so much satisfaction. So, if he is going to direct something to do with Star Trek and there was the possibility of dear old Jean-Luc showing up again and doing that for Mr Tarantino, I would embrace it."
Stewart said one thing was sure about a Tarantino-directed Star Trek installment: it would be gripping.
"The one thing that characterizes all of his movies is that frame by frame, it always challenges, always demands your attention, always demands a very kind of open and generous response to what he does," he said. "I also love his sense of humor as a filmmaker. So yes, he would be my first choice."
The formula is to take a specific genre and try to boil it down to a movie that relies heavily upon hollow characters who spit out witty one liners and deal out ultraviolence. He casts the same people, he uses the same tropes with few exceptions. It's all just self-wankery with Tarantino intent on displaying his knowledge and command of obscure genres of film.I am not seeing the common formula between Hateful 8 and Inglourious Basterds.
But I will say that space is Tarantino's final frontier. He has made the kung fu movie, the blacksploitation movie, the western, the spaghetti western, and he wrote one of the best romance movies ever made - True Romance. I am not into Star Trek. It's always been shit to me. I would prefer if Tarantino makes his own science fiction movie without recreating anyone else's movie (hateful, inglorious, and django) or riding someone else's IP.
Well, I for one can't think of a modern movie that as a whole has really wow'ed me in quite some time.
I don't know of anything those two have been a part of that I would say was top notch. Some of their stuff I liked in part, but as a whole none of it.
As the marvel and DC movies were mentioned, those two are the same as above. While I like, them both, in parts, the whole of any of them has issues that keep me from saying they are that good. While none are bad movies, they are all far from being great movies.
I think unless something changes with the movie making trend it won't matter too much at all who is directing what, as we just aren't getting the kind of film making that made movies great in the first place.
I can't honestly think of a movie coming out that makes me want to go see it.
Sadly, movies are a thing I could go on about forever, but I'll leave it at that.
I'm really torn about this. Star Trek and Tarantino just...I don't know.
The man can make an excellent movie, but I fear him putting way too much emphasis on extreme violence, everyone acting like scumbags, and his weird penchant for injecting 70's Grindhouse effects and music. None of those are what Star Trek is about.
Then again, who knows, it might be something pretty awesome.
Tarantino has dabbled in more conventional material (like ER) with good results. I doubt this would be Django in Space. Hopefully more character- and story-driven like Jackie Brown, with some awesome action sequences and maybe a few intense dramatic scenes to drive it home.
I'm a fan of classic Trek in all its forms, but I'm not a purist who hates the new stuff. I'd rather see them experiment with the characters than let the franchise go stale and die.
Tarantino hasn't made a good movie since Pulp Fiction. All his movies are formulaic shit.
different does not equal good
I still haven't watch an episode of the new star trek, is it worth watching. MIght check out of r Picard
