Today comes news of yet another list Star Trek is on. The Hollywood Reporter asked Inglourious Basterds director Quentin Tarantino to talk about his favorite movies of 2009 and JJ Abrams new Star Trek movie came out on top of the list. See below for video of Tarantino’s top 8 for 2009. Plus we have some Tarantino Star Trek mashups, just for fun.
Quentin’s 2009 list
Director Quentin Tarantino lists his top 8 films of 2009.
His (prelim) list
- Star Trek
- Drag Me to Hell
- Funny People
- Up in the Air
- Chocolate (Thai film also known as "Fury")
- Observe and Report
- An Education
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is said to be one of Tarantino’s favorite movies, and the title card at the beginning of Kill Bill Vol 1 stated: "Revenge is a dish best served cold – Old Klingon Proverb"
Maybe if JJ Abrams doesn’t have the time to direct the Star Trek sequel we will see "Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek: Something Something". Abrams certainly knows Tarantino, he cast Quentin for a recurring role during the first season of Alias, when JJ was still hands on with the show (see video below).
Tarantino Trek Mashups
Seems like as good a time as any to show off some Star Trek/Tarantino Mashups from the YouTube.
