Logan's Run

No longer available on Netflix

Summary:


Rating: PG


Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yes, but only if I skip a scene.


Could I have watched this with my Mom? : Maybe. I would have to skip the same scene, but also I'm not sure she would really be into it.


Language: Mild to None.


Sex/Romance: There is a full on orgy scene. (There is a Love Shop, and in the love shop everyone is naked and making love. It's super gross. Lots of boobs. No actual genitalia, though. So there's that.) There is a bit of a romance, and while I don't go for romance I did find it interesting how they handled consent in the relationship.


Violence/Gore: While there is definitely violence there is very little actual gore. (Although there is a pretty intense scene with a cosmetic surgery laser.)


Music: Often sudden in its arrival, abrupt in its end, and wild in its style variations.


Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : No.


Was there a food pairing? : No.


Thoughts: The concept for this movie was great, and I was excited to learn that the movie was based off of a book! (Turns out it is actually a trilogy and not that easy to get ahold of.) Obviously the large amount of breasts and sex shown was shocking, especially since it was rated only PG. A large portion of the plot was played out very quickly, and then a minor, almost inconsequential section took up a large, slow amount of time, and then the rest was crammed in at the end. I definitely felt they rushed the ending and forced a cheap, premature ending on the film because they ran out of time and money. But it was still a somewhat satisfying ending, and like I said, I did like the overall concept of the piece.


Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Well, no. I didn't have the house to myself. I saw the movie listed on Netflix and wanted to watch it, and then saw that they were removing it at midnight that night. So I watched a different movie with my parents while we ate dinner, and then went upstairs and watched this movie on my computer right after.


In the End: 3 out of 5 stars. I have seen the future, and it is full of boobies and vines.
