For a renegade's revenge
In western country.

Uh, Naked Gun?

My answer has nothing to do with your haiku. It's just the only O.J. Simpson movie I can think of at the moment. Posted Image

Ah, well, O J Simpson isn't in it... which should be a clue!

Seems another clue is in order. It was a film of the 70's, with chief support, by George!

Outlaw Josey Wales. Now, do I need to come up with one? I'll make it easy on myself.

This is a fun game you've invented, John. Maybe we need some rules, though. It should probably be where the one who answers provides the next haiku, but there should be a time limit so the game can continue if someone decides to pass. This isn't a shot at Tom, as his answer hasn't been up long. Posted Image But, it could become an issue.

Also, maybe people with too much time on their hands could provide three haikus: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Mine obviously falls into the first category, and I'd say yours is somewhere between intermediate and advanced, John. I only knock it back a bit because Outlaw Josey Wales was on the tip of my mind earlier, but I wasn't sure until your last clue.

Pointless sci-fi film
Shapely Italian women

EDIT: Oops, didn't see the rule about starting a new haiku. Sorry! Posted Image

They're not hard-and-fast rules. The more haikus, the better. Posted Image

I must admit i've wracked my brains over sci-fi films to no effect so far. How about another teeny clue?

i'd say matthew's is the matrix reloaded. although i thought keanu reeves played bass guitar in his band (if i am right). no argument about monica bellucci, she is quite shapely (and almost 40 Posted Image )

Too easy! Pulp Fiction!

Let's see... this is an easy one, too, but I'm too tired to come up with anything better
