I know QT has done the homage to Exploitation films in all his movies, but this just makes me think of what if a real cool new exploitation film was made WITHOUT the Irony or Spoofage, nor the melodrama (ala Ghost Dog) and with all the cool camera effects and still have a character we can believe in without having to cram in a "hahaaaaaaaaaa", most likely forced between every line. Of course, that's not QT's style to make a crappy film for a few cheap laughs, but those who have taken his cue or sorta ruining that which he re-established. And I don't wanna see QT TRY and redo what he has done before. So in other words, I will now begin work on my Exploitation Project without Irony and get nowhere with it because I am a college student with a DV camera and no serious technical or narrative knowledge.
THE END.

DV cameras were born to create non-ironic exploitation projects. You have my support (not financially of course, but in spirit).
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Tarantino, Brosnan Want Royale

Quentin Tarantino told SCI FI Wire that he has talked to Pierce Brosnan about adapting Casino Royale as Brosnan's fifth and final James Bond film. The director noted that his challenge would be to convince producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli to diverge from the current formula of expensive action set pieces.

"I don't see that they have anything to lose at all," Tarantino said in an interview while promoting his latest film, Kill Bill, Vol. 2. "They've got this gigantic franchise, they can't do anything wrong with it. Pierce Brosnan's only going to do one more movie for them, if that, so if he stayed on to do one more with me, let's just this one year go my way and do it a little differently. I won't do anything that will ruin the series."

Tarantino hopes that the offer of a low budget and Brosnan's return would convince the producers to approve a one-time-only return to the character-driven spy plots of the first several 007 films. "Wouldn't it be great to have a James Bond movie that didn't cost $115 million and only cost $40 million or something like that?" he asked. "You know it's going to make its money back, and we [would] all do good. Maybe we win the critics this time, then you're back in business the way you were before."

Tarantino felt there was only "a thin chance" that he would win the project, and said he would concede to update the 1952 novel for the present day. "If I owned the material, I would set it in the '60s, but I'm sure I'd have to do it now." Casino Royale was first adapted as a comedy in 1967.

OH YES!
Another QT project that isn't an original idea.

I love his movies but I'd like to see him do something that is completely his own.

I think he could really get what Bond was about, and blow some shit up too in the proscess. Sounds like an amazing thing though... please happen

It'd finally be an honest-to-goodness non-pussy R rated Bond. I'd enjoy that...

Although I'd be totally shocked if this Bond thing ever happened, it's a fantastic idea.  The franchise really needs a shot of adrenaline, and QT could be just the man to do it.  I really loathe their insistence on getting non-US directors to direct the flicks (Michael Apted?  Roger Spotiswoode?) who are not equipped to handle something so big.  The flicks are truly directed by the 2nd unit directors and that just blows.  The last 2 movies were so tired and by-the-numbers, I don't think I can muster sitting through another of the same (yes, i've seen every one).

Oh my god, the coolness of QT plus the coolness of Bond.  If this happens it will be exactly what Bond movies have needed for the last 20 years or so.  Although one of the first things to cross my mind was that Brosnan doesn't really hit me as a QT actor...donno if anyone else feels that way.

Maybe that's why it'll work...
