Jean-Luc condemns Hollywood's portrayal of violence against women

Stewart Condemns Hollywood Violence.
>>Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the television series "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and three movies, singled out director Quentin Tarantino for criticism.
"The entertainment industry has been extremely irresponsible in perpetuating and stereotyping the violent attitudes of men to women," said Stewart, as he helped launch an Amnesty International campaign to combat violence against women. "It's a lazy and sensationalist approach. I condemn it entirely." <<

Right on! and that's not all they do!

Whatever happened to true creativity where you tell a fascinating story without nudity, sex, unending car crashes, etc.?

Set phasers to 'discuss rationally'!

He's come a long way from the curly haired young actor who was so blood thirsty as Sejanus in 'I, Claudius'.

Has anyone seen 'Kill Bill'?

Hi, Dan.

>>Has anyone seen 'Kill Bill'?<<
We saw the Ebert and Roeper review and, despite the two thumbs up, decided it was too violent for us. BTW, Part II is due out sometime this year.
