As excessive as the violence is, it isn't as violent as people make it out to be. For example, when Bruce Willis slashes the guy with the samurai sword, you don't see the contact. Then, when he thrusts it into the guy's leg, you hear the sound of it and it's below the frame. It's more about the consequences the characters face around these violent images as opposed to glorifying violence as a whole. Also, when Marsellus Wallace is being sodomized, you do not see any nudity and Bruce Willis comes in before anything is shown. Let's move on to profanity, if you drop the F bomb, it bumps up the rating to an R rating. "Pulp Fiction" deserves its R rating, nothing more & nothing less!

Opponent contradicts himself. No contact=less violence. Hear sound BELOW frame=less violence. Profanity merely means PG-13. All my opponent has shown is why Pulp Fiction should be PG13, not R, supporting the opposing position.

Extending....
And I worded my argument wrong, sorry about that. By "Profanity merely means PG-13" I meant that even if you swear, the rating will merely be PG-13 rather than R. Thank you for giving me a chance to clarify.
I hope my opponent comes back for the last round.

How anyone could ever vote con...I have no words to describe how stupid you are.

Of course this movie needs to be rated R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The profanity, drugs, violence, rape scene, I mean what about it doesn't have R written all over it?
Most people 17- wouldn't even understand it anyway!
