Ever wanted to watch every pop culture reference in Quentin Tarantino movies in chronological order? Well, you’re in luck, because the folks over at College Humor did it for you.

CollegeHumor’s Favorite Funny Videos

What counts as chronological order, you might ask? We’re talking the order of the references in all of his movies from the era they reference. Tarantino touched on everything from the 1900s through the 2000s, and they’re all fantastic. Some of them are easier to notice than the others, but they’re all fantastic. We hope that College Humor does an updated version after “Django Unchained” comes out so that timeline can go even farther back.

Quentin Tarantino considering making a kids movie or mini-series

The sky’s the limit for Quentin Tarantino, and he’s ready to start experimenting. Though he’s said in the past that he’d prefer to only make a total of 10 movies and that an “Inglourious Basterds” spinoff called “Killer Crow” could be one of them, he’s now added a kids movie and mini-series to the list of projects he’d like to tackle.

“I just haven’t come up with a good [kids movie] story yet or something like that, but I could be interested in that,” Tarantino told Craig Ferguson. “I did a movie and one of the assistant editors on the film had worked on ‘Mighty Ducks 2′ or something and they were talking about when they would do the screenings for ‘Mighty Ducks’ and they would bring the kids in, and they were talking about the fact that the kids that they brought in were so into the first ‘Mighty Ducks’ that when they went to see ‘2,’ they were rabid with excitement. I kind of like the idea of an audience being rabid with excitement.”

Tarantino went on to say that he was really impressed with the miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys” this year and that he’s always thought about doing a miniseries. In fact, he went on to say that he had originally conceptualized “Inglourious Basterds” as a miniseries, but then Luc Besson convinced him to make it as a movie. That hasn’t stopped him from toying with the idea though, and it could be something Tarantino returns to.

“I would totally do something like that. I write these big long scripts and I usually have to cut them down to make them the right size length,” he said. “I could totally see myself writing a cool novelistic life story not having the restriction of a two-and-a-half hour time limit.”

In a separate interview with Charlie Rose, Tarantino admitted he’d also like to bring Johnny Depp into one of his projects in the future.

”We would love to work together. We’ve talked about it for years. Not that we get together and talk about it for years, but from time to time,” he said. ”We’re obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with. And if he agrees, then we’ll do it. And then it’ll be magical.”

Quentin Tarantino talks possible “Inglourious Basterds” spinoff “Killer Crow”

If you felt like “Inglourious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” were somehow connected, then you would be right. Quentin Tarantino has come forward in a new interview to say that he considers them to be two parts in the same “trilogy,” and is planning a third film that would conclude their thematic arc.

“I don’t know exactly when I’m going to do it, but there’s something about this that would suggest a trilogy,” he told The Root (via /Film). “My original idea for ‘Inglourious Basterds’ way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been fucked over by the American military and kind of go apeshit.”

He continued, “The way Lt. Aldo Raine and the Basterds are having an ‘Apache resistance’ — [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland. … So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It’s ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it.”

Since “Django” takes place chronologically before “Inglourious,” it’s very likely that we’ll see some mention of Django or Dr. King Schultz in the third film, which Tarantino is calling “Killer Crow.” As for whether or not that will be Tarantino’s next film, that’s yet to be determined, though he has previously said he doesn’t have that many left in him.

“I’m on a journey that needs to have an end and not be about me trying to get another job. I want this artistic journey to have a climax. I want to work toward something,” he told Playboy. “You stop when you stop, but in a fanciful world, 10 movies in my filmography would be nice. I’ve made seven. If I have a change of heart, if I come up with a new story, I could come back. But if I stop at 10, that would be okay as an artistic statement.”
