After repeatedly touting The Movie Critic as his 10th and final film, and locking in Brad Pitt to reprise his role as Cliff Booth — Wait, what?! — Quentin Tarantino has made the very surprising decision to scrap the whole project. He reportedly rewrote the script, but had a “change of heart” and pulled the plug. However, this does not mean Tarantino is capping his career with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He will write and direct a final film. He just doesn’t know what that is yet. (THR)

If you enjoy clear-eyed commentary, you can’t go wrong with Beau of the Fifth Column. He’s been tackling the Iran debacle that occurred over the weekend and doing a great job explaining why it happened along with the poker table charade of foreign policy. To his surprise, the situation has not gone sideways (yet), which could have easily happened if the vast majority of Iran’s drones weren’t shot out of the sky. However, one viewer was extremely angry that Beau wanted the drones stopped because they felt a conflict with Iran would divert Israel’s attention from Gaza. In a borderline scathing response, Beau broke down why the exact opposite would happen and how the Palestinians would suffer even more. (YouTube)
