Quentin Tarantino to direct a first ever R-rated Star Trek film? Quite intriguing actually!

I know I have been staying away from movie news a lot, but this one sounds intriguing to me that I need to post about this one. Quentin Tarantino came up with the idea that he wants to make an R-rated Star Trek movie with the new reboot cast. It turns out that J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures both love the idea and they’re gonna give it a try.

If they’re gonna make it a hard-R, that means the film will be full of swearing, offensive and vulgar language which Tarantino is best at. Can you see a young Captain Kirk played by Chris Pine dropping F bombs throughout the movie? Not only that, it could open the doors for more gritty violence, blood and gore. Could the film also include more sexual content like more nudity? All of this could be possible.

A non-family friendly Star Trek film. Interesting.

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ Will Be R-Rated: ‘The Revenant’s Mark L. Smith Frontrunner Scribe

As a Star Trek fan, I’m all for this.

Could it help bring a wider auidience? I don’t know. The film will indeed turn off some longtime fans, but it could help bring many new ones too.

I’m actually interested in a Tarantino styled Star Trek movie. He’ll probably make it a full three hours. You know how Tarantino films usually are. It’ll be the same with Star Trek.

I don’t like Tarantino’s left-wing political views but he’s still talented. I’m still a fan of his. I still haven’t seen The Hateful Eight yet but since it’s on Netflix, I’ll get around to watching that film soon.

New “Star Trek” series will be more graphic… interesting…

Bryan Fuller who is the producer of the new “Star Trek” series says the show will be more graphic.

What does that mean? Will the show have more gritty violence and blood? Will there be more profanity? Fuller said not a lot but who knows maybe there will be a little profanity. Will they experiment with more nudity and sex scenes?

They’re not on broadcast networks (regular TV) anymore so they can do what they want. Sounds like they’re want the new “Star Trek” show to be aimed at the adult audience which will be interesting.

It’ll be interesting to see who the new Captain is gonna be and we’ll find out soon. I won’t be able to watch the new “Star Trek” show ’cause I’m not subscribing to CBS All Access. I subscribe to three things like Netflix, WWE Network and Apple Music so that’s good enough for me. Maybe Netflix will get the new “Star Trek” after it streams on CBS All Access, who knows? All the Star Trek shows are on Netflix anyways.

I’m a big Star Trek fan still.

“Star Trek” will return to the small screen on Jan. 2017, yes you heard that right… a whole new Star Trek show!

Over the years there have been 5 different Star Trek shows for the small screen: the original series, “Star Trek: the Next Generation”, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Star Trek: Enterprise”. After “Star Trek: Enterprise” ended in 2005 there hasn’t been a new Star Trek TV show ever since. During the years that there has been no new Star Trek show, CBS/Paramount concentrated on the new JJ Abrams film series reboot. Now there’s finally gonna be a new TV show after all these years.

The new Star Trek show will premiere on Jan. in 2017 and will be exclusive for the new “CBS: All Access” standalone streaming service which will cost $5.99 a month.

Will the new TV show be based on the reboot film series? I don’t think so ’cause the article just said the new show will have all new characters so it won’t be a reboot of anything. There’s probably gonna be a new Captain and new everything. The plot and characters are unknown at this time ’cause the article doesn’t say but I’m sure we’ll learn more soon. I’m sure we’ll get a trailer very soon.

I won’t watch it on the new CBS streaming service but I’m sure the first season will land on Netflix streaming. All the Star Trek TV shows are available for Netflix streaming so I’m sure this new one will land on there as well.

I’m a big Star Trek fan, always has been. I saw all the TV shows and all the movies… except the only TV show I never saw was “Star Trek: Enterprise”. I won’t bother watching that one ’cause it didn’t get the best reviews.

I’m glad a new series is finally coming, though.

Re-watched the 6 original “Star Trek” movies last week in honor of Leonard…

All last week, I’ve been re-watching the 6 original “Star Trek” movies with the original cast. I wanted to re-watched the first 6 Star Trek movies in honor of Leonard as a way to celebrate his career in Star Trek. Yep, I re-watched the first 6 Star Trek films: “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”, “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock”, “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home”, “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier” and “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country”.

I’ve seen all these movies so many times over the years but it was good to watch ’em all again. I love all of these movies except for “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier” which was the only one that I thought was pretty much garbage. Bad plot. Bad writing. Bad directing. William Shatner directed that one himself too. I also thought this whole story between Cpt. Kirk vs. God was pretty wacky.

I also still say that “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” were the best of the series.

It was great to re-watch these movies again, though.

RIP: Leonard Nimoy 1931 – 2015

As some of you know, I’m a huge Star Trek fan so I guess you can say that I’m a Trekkie. Have been ever since I was a child. I was obsessed with the original Star Trek series when I was a kid and I still love that show today. I also loved all of the 6 original Star Trek films that Leonard starred in as Spock: “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”, “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock”, “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home”, “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” and Leonard once again reprised his role as Spock for JJ Abrams, “Star Trek” film. He also had a cameo in “Star Trek Into Darkness”.

While most people remember Leonard as an actor who played the legendary Spock, he was more than just that. Leonard was a multi-talented man. He did it all in the entertainment business. You name it, he did it. He was an actor, film director, screenwriter, poet, author, singer/musician and photographer. He did release his own music albums and published his own books over the years.

As a film director, he did direct other films besides “Star Trek III” and “Star Trek IV” in which he was the director of those two movies. He was also the director of the comedy film, “Three Men and a Baby” in which I’m sure most of us seen.

Leonard passed away at his Bel Air home, he was 83 years old.

Look like William Shatner may finally get his wish, he may appear in “Star Trek 3″…

When the first Star Trek movie came out, I remember that William Shatner desperately wanted to return as Captain Kirk just like Leonard Nimoy returned as Spock for the first film. However, JJ Abrams didn’t want Kirk to return to the first film since Kirk got killed off in “Star Trek: Generations”. Remember, JJ and Bill Shatner had a little public feud ’cause JJ wouldn’t have him in the film? I’ll never forget that feud as it was entertaining as hell stuff!

Well, it’s looking like that JJ wants the original Captain Kirk back in the film with Leonard as Spock. The original Cpt. Kirk and Spock to reunite in the next Star Trek film? If that’s gonna happen which probably will, I’ll go see it.

Even if the original Cpt. Kirk got killed off in an earlier Star Trek movie, I’m sure they’ll find a way to bring him back. Keep in mind, Bill Shatner is a sci-fi writer himself so I’m sure he’ll give JJ some ideas.

“Star Trek: Into Darkness” was a horrible film and I’m sure the next film won’t be any better but I’ll go see it if the original Cpt. Kirk and Spock are gonna reunite. That’ll be pretty cool to see.

The name of the first Star Trek beer will be called, “Warnog” which is the name of the actual Klingon beer that was seen in the TV series. No launch date has been announced yet but they said it will be out sometime later this year.

I’m not much of an alcohol drinker anymore but I gotta try this so hopefully my area will sell it. There is a beverage store here.

What’s gonna be next? Romulan Ale? Cpt. Picard’s “Earl Grey Tea”???
