Rumors are spreading faster than fact about Quentin Tarantino in talks to do a Star Trek film.

Quote

Tarantino has required it to be R rated, and Paramount and Abrams agreed to that condition.

As a stand-alone feature in the Trek universe it could prove interesting but this is NOT a fix for Star Trek. The thrill of being explorers, discovery and hard decisions of encountering new life forms is what we need.

Tarantino's insisting on an R-rating proves that he should never be involved with any Star Trek production.  

The very essence of Star Trek is the progress of Humanity - personal and societal improvement and exploration as well as the renouncement of our primitive desires.  Tarantino would have the crew of the Enterprise be the exact opposite.

Well, the article never said that Tarantino’s script centers around the Enterprise. A “Star Trek” movie (or show for that matter) could mean a whole mess of things.

Like a dark gritty tale that takes place on a Federation planet not involving Starfleet. Except maybe a dead Starfleet officer found in a pool of his blood, the prositute that the police arrested swears she had nothing to do with it.

And with the obligatory multiple F-bombs spewed by one and all, of course.....

Same here. I can't say I find him overrated. Most positive reviews and movie fans admit his films are bloated, and for what inspires him he does extremely well. I love Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and the really shaky Inglourious Basterds (far from perfect but endlessly rewatchable), but I couldn't finish either Django Unchained or The Hateful 8.

Kill Bill is fun if really ponderously dumb at times, and everything else is okay. I feel I am overlooking a big classic here but I can't put my finver on it...

Sigh...Star Trek should be something for all ages. There are sci-fi franchises to get your R rating or how about Tarantino do something original?

Besides that, Star Trek Beyond got some pretty good reviews. I thought it was decent and a thousand times better than that Into Darkness crap. It at least looked like Trek was headed in the right direction with Beyond.

Agreed.

Star Trek Beyond is easily the most 'true to Trek' thing that's been produced in the post-Enterprise era.

Dogs and Pulp I assume.
For me it’s those two plus Jackie.

Beyond was only good because it couldn't be worse than Into Darkness. Into Darkness is probably the worst Trek film ever.

The worst Star Trek movie is Nemesis. That piece of trash destroyed the TNG era mercilessly. The director was a world class knob, and the hackneyed story made no sense. Truly awful. Virtually no redeeming qualities.

Into Plotholes was bad... Just an awful story. But at least it served as a fun popcorn film in Star Trek clothing. It was visually stunning, and maybe the best 3D movie cinematography I've seen. Seriously.. The 3D version looks killer good.

Star Trek the Motion Picture is a quintessentially 'Trek' story, but draws itself out in a long, boring "wannabe 2001" style that kills the pacing and tone of what could've been a good movie. If you can stay awake through it, there's some good stuff in there... But jeez, get on with it.

Those are my bottom 3.

As for Beyond, it actually brought the right crew dynamic back. It tempered and balanced the characters, serving more as a love letter to their original iterations than they'd done in the previous reboot movies. I rank it high-middle in the Trek movie pack.

Into Darkness and Nemesis are my bottom two without a doubt. Motion Picture is the worst of the original crew flicks but I’m not sure what would be third from the bottom though
