The latest issue of Vanity Fair is about to hit stands, and inside the pages of the magazine is a presumably long and exhaustingly good oral history of Quentin Tarantino's seminal '90s work, "Pulp Fiction." Online, Vanity Fair has published what one assumes is a truncated version of said oral history, but man, it's still damn good.

Now, before we dive into this little update from Quentin Tarantino on what he might direct next, let's just remember that over the course of the press tour for "Django Unchained," he's had a lot of ideas. He's already teased that 'Django' and "Inglorious Basterds" could be part of a loose trilogy, he's talked about a possible 'Basterds' spinoff entitled "Killer Crow," a desire to shoot a movie in Australia, or maybe make another slavery/western film or gangster picture. You get the idea. But continuing to promote "Django Unchained" as it opens overseas, Tarantino has added a new possible next movie to his list, and one that could find him drawing things down a bit.

Toy company NECA has been no stranger to darker or violent attributes when it comes to their lines of film-related figurines, having drawn content from “Sin City,” “The Evil Dead” and, most extensively, the filmography of Quentin Tarantino. With the director's highest grossing film, “Django Unchained,” it looked like stellar business was in store for the toy company, but now NECA -- and The Weinstein Company -- have been served with the type of controversy wafting off the spaghetti western itself.

Well, we've already seen the kind of questioning that guarantees Quentin Tarantino flying into a "shutting your butt down" rage, but if you want him to get up and dance, just talk about "Pulp Fiction."

“Django Unchained” still hasn’t opened in the UK; in fact it’s one of four of this year’s Best Picture nominees that have yet to do so. It will, however, hit British cinemas in just eight days time, and Quentin Tarantino is over there at the moment to promote his new film which tonight has it’s London premiere. While doing said promoting, QT has so far come across as someone supremely confident in his own ability as a filmmaker, and unashamedly proud of the latest product he’s got to offer. In fact, it had all been going rather swimmingly, until he was interviewed by Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

With the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut still lingering on the mind on the nation, there has been an awful lot of talk (but not much action) from politicians and pundits on both sides of the issue. But perhaps grabbing the biggest headline, for better or worse, was the lunkheaded NRA VP Wayne LaPierre, who dredged up the old argument that movie violence (citing films like "American Psycho" -- which has no guns -- and "Natural Born Killers") as the cause of these kinds of incidents, not the wide availability of assault weapons and magazines that carry more payload that anyone realistically needs outside of the military.

Amidst the ongoing flurry of debate over Quentin Tarantino's spaghetti western “Django Unchained,” one can at least declare safely that the hints to the final product on screen were always present. The screenplay -- leaked over a year ago and marked up in the director's handwriting -- contained the full vision of what Tarantino hoped to achieve, and now with disputes over the film's ruthless depiction of violence, the script and the director's words are here to clear the air.

One can't talk about Quentin Tarantino without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows, music and more that he loves. Even Quentin Tarantino himself can't talk about his own movies without talking about the movies, comics, TV shows and music that he loves. And now, many of the references he's peppered into his films to date (except "Django Unchained") have been conveniently distilled into one video for your viewing pleasure.

Watch: Quentin Tarantino's Shout Outs To Editor Sally Menke While Filming 'Inglourious Basterds' & 'Death Proof'

Up until “Inglorious Basterds,” and stretching all the way back to the first feature of his career, “Reservoir Dogs,” ever-present alongside Quentin Tarantino was his editor Sally Menke. She was twice nominated by the Academy for her work with QT (and three times by BAFTA), but sadly Menke passed away in 2010 at the age of 56. Fred Raskin (a former assistant editor under Menke on “Kill Bill” and the editor of the last three “Fast & Furious” films) took over editing duties on “Django Unchained,” and Menke's must have been some tough shoes to fill.
