    If Tarantino did philosophical movies.

    Republic Dogs. Staring Thrasymachus, Socrates, Alcibiades and Aristotle

    Strong language, violence, but all in words no pictures. And of course mit.edu must be work safe, right?

    that's the version of The Republic they should teach. Socrates?...Aristotle? Oh yeah those crazy M-f'ers!

    Whew, that stuff came from MIT. Too high-brow for the Deek to handle.

    However, if you want an awsome Tarantino movie (IMnsHO), try "Hero" with Jet Li. I don't want to give it away, but make sure you watch it on the best quality TV you can. It is perhaps the most visually impressive movie I have seen in a long, long time.

    There is great beauty in simplicity, let me say that.

    It ain't no average Jet Li flick either.

    totally diff kind of movie, but did you see Kung Fu Hustle? Laughed my a$$ off at that. Like watching real actors as looney tunes characters in a kung fu movie.

    No, but I'll keep it in mind as winter approaches. Is is a parody of martial arts flicks?

    market's too saturated with chinese movies... especially when they can all be obtained by bootleg long before they come out in theatres in North America.

    Notice that they are all going the artsy direction now? back in the early 90's it was all action

    have you seen KFH? Nothing arty about it. Very slapstick and original.

    Well I thought it was pretty funny and I'm not even a huge Kung Fu genre fan. Haven't seen Shaolin Soccer, but the guy I was watching it with talked about that and compared it favorably to KFH. The "old lady" in it was priceless.

    nope...and I assume the movie would have taken on another dimension if I had. I watched it with dubbed American voices. Still enjoyed it quite a bit though.

    haha, yeah the subtitles in the early 90s were hiarlous to read, even more enjoyable to read than watching the movie itself :P what other flicks you like?

    "The Scent Of Green Papaya" from Viet Nam. I guess it was good, I don't know. It was short on words an long on imagry. The GF dug it, though. I think it's a love story. Forbidden love, perhaps.
