Quentin Tarantino To Direct “Con Air Bud” Movie, Has Titular Dog Stop 9/11
Terrorists, beware: there’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s not all bark and no bite. After an 11-year break from the series, the titular canine family is returning in “Con Air Bud” — where Buddy’s descendants will try to stop 9/11 from happening.
“I mean, you know, the world is so messed up, we need some gritty realism,” said Quentin Tarantino, the movie’s director. “You’re like, ‘fuck, man’, everything’s so fucked up, and you’re fucking losing your mind about it. Those dogs, they’re like, a bastion of the ideal past, man, but it’s so shit bad to not think about how fucked they are now.”
Tarantino explained that since the dogs are “literally down to Earth”, he’ll be casting his human actors based on “feet and feet alone”. Additionally, with no airline agreeing to license their brand for the movie, Tarantino has created the fictional ‘Polanski Airlines’ to replace both United and American Airlines.
While audiences are clamoring for more Tarantino movies — particularly after the director previously stated that The Movie Critic will be his tenth and final project — others find the move more sinister. Wokeova Kriteek’sísí, a critic writing for Le Journal, shared her thoughts.
“There is something strange about Tarantino taking on this project,” Kriteek’sísí told The Flipside. “Something is afoot, though I can’t quite put a finger on it. ‘Con Air Bud’ is completely outside of his normal wheelhouse — it’s a semi-parody using popular children’s characters from the 2000s and 2010s, when Tarantino normally does much more grounded, serious films with overt references to the ‘80s. I could be wrong but I don’t think Pulp Fiction had a dog or a 9/11.”
The Flipside will continue to monitor this story. In the meantime, Google “Quentin Tarantino Polanski controversy” for more information.
