Re: How did TMP get a G rating?

^Good review. I agree -- the film was kind of a mess.
"Logan's Run" got massive pre-publicity here in Australia. One of our big daily variety shows ran a series of interviews and preview clips for a week over one school holidays. I'd only just started to attend movies regularly and I saw "Logan's Run" with my younger brother - and both of us came out wondering if we'd gotten value for money, having recently passed into the adult ticket age-group.

Later that night, my French teacher took a group of us to see a French film, "Cousin, Cousine" (later remade with Ted Danson, IIRC), in the same cinema complex and that also turned out to be less than memorable.

I started getting very cautious about movies. But yes, many elements of "Logan's Run" have stayed with me over the years, even though I've only really seen it once in the cinema and some segments on TV.

As for Zefferelli's "Romeo & Juiet". A "G" rated school excursion because we were studying the play... and yeah, one scene was very memorable for the boys in my class.
