I'm sad to hear of either the death or status of "Washed up" applied to Harold Ramus and Burt Ward.

Honestly dude, if you're pondering watching a Tarantino film, you shouldn't have a problem with nudity. There isn't any nudity to my knowledge in any of his movies, but your values might be skewed if you'd rather watch gratuitous violence and black humor than a female nipple.

That being said, Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs are best, in that order imo but opinions differ. Jackie Brown is good but a little slower.

Kill Bill 1 & 2 and Inglorious Basterds are good for one watch imo.

Aren't you jumping the gun though? Present company tends to have an affect on what one watches. Just because he's pondering watching black humor over nudity doesn't necessarily mean his value system is skewed.

Violence is much worse than any nudity. Don't care who you are. If you have reservations about portrayals of acts or ideas in movies, then shooting people or ass-raping them (Zed and Maynard) is a hell of a lot worse than a titty or external genitalia shot.

Why I have a problem with American t.v. I find it ridiculously absurd that FCC censors skin (mind you, only areas that make up about 3% of total skin area) or even sexual acts but some guy getting blasted in the face with a gun? Cool.

Agrred TG, and it started a long time ago now.

I wonder if bewbs would be as big a deal if they were not suppressed though?

I remember seeing Pulp Fiction in the theater on opening night. Quinten had not become mainstream yet. When Vincent's gun accidently went off I laughed with some of the other people watching, then paused and thought about how jaded we were.

A guy just got splattered and we were laughing.

I suspect if it came out today the theater would be full and nearly everyone would laugh.

Don't worry FunkyT. The unwashed masses worship Tarantino because he is the new Opium. Us Ivory Tower folk can go on living in peace.

We/they used to be. It's too bad really to see it go away. Maybe it's because our city is too big but I think it's media. Everyone wants to be gangsters and bronies or what ever.

I watched Braveheart once with two guys I was working with. One of them cringed and turned away closing his eyes when the guy rode a horse in and hit someone with a mace. It was nice to see someone that was not desensitized to violent images.

Just think if no one could stomach being a jerk. "No, no, I insist, after you." "Why thank you, kind sir. Have a terrific day." Now days it catches me off guard when people are polite / nice.

They should start a theme park where it's just ordinary things (stores, restaurants, professionals, etc..) but everyone is really polite and considerate. I might make a weekly tradition out of it if it existed.

We have been to a few places where I noticed people saying excuse me in stores and that sort of thing. Made me miss when our city was like that.

The worst is when they censor someone flipping off the camera. Everyone knows what the f*ck the person is doing, why bother censoring it?

Honestly, I don't enjoy overly violent movies. Some violence is okay. Fights and whatnot, some gunning but not like slicing necks and blowing someones face off or anything.
The reason I didn't think to ask about violence is because usually when people recommend a movie they tell you to watch out for the violence if it has a lot. One thing people don't warn about in my experience is sexuality.
But sexual violence is the worst. Even if it doesn't show any nudity. I can't stand anybody getting raped or anything.

Don't watch Pulp Fiction.

Resevoir Dogs might be okay, but there is one scene in particular that you might not enjoy. However, it is the best scene in the movie.

Yeah a lot of his stuff is gratuitously "shocking" and oh so very "90's". I honestly think he read too many comic books growing up(and beyond) and its permanently affected his mind to the point where he can't seem to outgrow these tendencies.
I know it sounds like I'm being really hard on Tarantino but I do think he has good qualities, he just keeps trying to overextend his reach.
