QT fans will love it, .


Not the QT fans I'm reading. They
say it's boring with no plot. I have
never seen Kill Bill all the way,
it puts me to sleep.

Pretty much no sex, as I recall. There is a blow job offered at one point, but declined. As I mentioned before, there is a scene, which I explain in spoiler tags, that is very violet, but otherwise you don't see anything heavy.


That will probably be okay then. I know Tarantino movies tend toward violence as I've seen many of them. It doesn't bother me, but she would rather see something else if there is too much.

Just looking at IMDB. Tarantino is doing a Star Trek project. No details given.

Logan was an R - rated film to retire Wolverine, a character who had been in 8 PG-13 films for 17 years. When Logan cleared $600 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million, Quentin Tarantino pitched the idea of an R rated finale for Star Trek and his own final film.


Films featuring Wolverine and world wide gross

2014 X-Men: Days of Future Past $747.9
2017 Logan (2017) $619.0 ----------------------------------------------------Main character- only R rated film
2016 X-Men: Apocalypse $543.9-------------------------------------cameo
2006 X-Men: The Last Stand $459.4
2013 The Wolverine $414.8----------------------------------------------------Main character
2003 X2: X-Men United $407.7
2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine $373.1----------------------------------------------------Main character
2011 X-Men: First Class $353.6-------------------------------------cameo
2000 X-Men $296.3

Hugh Jackman is 50 years old, and Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen are 79 and 80 years old, but William Shatner is 88 years old, and the last surviving cast members of Star Trek: TOS are also in their 80s.

Never saw it myself. In fact, of his 10 films, Iíve only seen four: Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Reservoir Dogs, Once..... But they were all worth the experience.

I could go either way with this one. You could convince me that it is a masterpiece. You could convince me that it is pointless. Iím most inclined to say that there is definitely something there, but Iím not sure itís interesting enough for me. And I get it, the narrative isnít the story, the story is what it felt like to live in L.A at the end of the Ď60s, and the changing of the guard from the hard living alcohol fueled culture of Rick and Cliff to the psychedelia of Tate and Polanski (and Manson and Watson). And how, at the ending, the two make a graceful transition.

I enjoyed watching it, though. It was a hell of a lot better than that Beatle movie, that one stunk. (But the acting was great.)

That Beatle movie stunk? The one called Yesterday?

Man, I am sorry to hear that. I was really looking forward to it.

I liked it. I think I reviewed it in the movie thread. Hoping I cancel out mosca's bad review.

I thought Mosca was talking about one of the Beatles' movies made back in the 1960s.

Those rocked. In the 60's, if you were
high.

We were really looking forward to it, too. And thatís not to say it doesnít have some absolutely great moments, and the lead actors are incredibly charismatic and almost jump off the screen... but the movie itself is a letdown. Iíd still recommend seeing it, but Netflix it. Then you can say, ďEh. But Iím glad I saw it. There were some good parts.Ē I think most of our disappointment come from that it could have been so much better. Quick resolution, cheap emotions, not giving away anything you couldnít see coming from miles away.
