This movie rocks from the very first scene! I loved it! Uma needs to tell Samuel L Jackson to hand over that BAD MOTHERFUCKER wallet! She kicked all kinds of ass!

I highly agree.....best movie I've seen all year.

I know it's not the kind of movie that wins major Oscars (too violent, too edgy, etc.), but seriously, Robert Richardson and Sally Menke DEFINITELY deserve awards for the cinematography and editing, respectively. Just gorgeously done.

Cannot wait for Volume 2 in February.

Now THIS is the reaction I wanna see!

I wanted to fucking punch half the theater. During the restaurant fight scene (the coolest one, naturally), a bunch of morons were laughing (LAUGHING!!) at the scene, rather than sit in awe and properly enjoy the kick-ass nature of the movie.

Goddamn uncultivated fucks. (not you Wieners. the morons who laughed)

I was in a theater with a bunch of high school guys. They were all in awe of the movie, and were silent, with the exception of spanking scene, they laughed, as did I.

It was a totally beautifully filmed movie. The scene in the snow was so beautiful, it was a shame it wasnt longer.

And, did Lucy Lui kick ass or what? The scene at the table and her speech was so Tarintino, it had me cheering.

I will see this again on Monday. And probably Wednesday as well.

Hey, I go into movies with the express purpose of ruining the flick. Hell, sometimes it's unintentional. Like the outbursts of laughter during Hannibal (yes, I got a lot of strange looks on those).

However, the Coconut Custard pie on the screen during Dude, Where's My Car? was deserved.

And no, I'm not a moron who pays 7 plus dollars just to pull a prank (good pranks are much more expensive). I have a friend who works at the theater, or if he's off, I just walk right back without a ticket. Very rarely does anybody check for my stub or anything.

And yes, I smuggled a coconut custard pie into a theater, along with 17 McDonalds double cheeseburgers, a can of Chunky soup, and a supersoaker.

I will be empty handed for my viewing of Kill Bill.

Well, I got to see this last night. Sorry, but it's one of most contrived pieces of trash I've ever seen in my life. It was laughable in most instances, with a paper-thin plot and a terrible script. My friends and I were just shaking our heads through it.

I can only assume that Tarantino was drunk whilst making it. I won't be watching part 2 that's for sure. Very disappointing.

WHAT WORKED:
-The fight scenes. I mean...holy shit, those were awesome! The Bride is built up as a face with a belivable motivation, which makes things cooler.
-Editing. It was tight.

WHAT DIDN'T WORK:
-Not enough talking. Okay, this is nitpicking...but Tarantino's strongest parts of his best films (Reservoir Dogs & Pulp Fiction especially) were the parts with lots of dialogue. Jules & Vincent from Pulp Fiction wouldn't be as cool without their kickass dialogue. By the nature of Kill Bill, there ain't a lot of expressional speeches because we already know what the Bride's doing and why. She doesn't need to tell us. More swank dialogue would've been cool.

Overall, AWESOME film. Gory as hell, and possibly the most violent flick I've ever seen...in a good way.

I don't have a complaint in the world about "Kill Bill". I'm even glad Miramax split the movie into two because I was just drained by the end of Vol. 1.

The tributes, the references, the "Our Feature Presentation" opening piece lifted off a drive-in clock...I was mesmorized.

oh man, this is one of my all time faves...i was in awe...I recently graduated high school, and i am currently in college, so some people say i do not have proper taste, example, i thought freddy vs jason is a masterpiece, so i went into kill bill with my buddies to get my mind off my ex (second movie i saw friday, first was the eye raping house of the dead), and i didnt expect much. as soon as the knife fight began, i was pulled in. I loved how the movie shifts in time and i loved the fight scenes. my interest is usually lost after an hour in a movie, but this had me craving for more. the last bit of dialogue by bill had me even more excited for volume 2. go out and see this, there may be asshole freshman fucks that snuck in that try ruin this movie by saying stupid shit like "HA HA, what's that bitch doin' driving a pussy wagon", ugh, i hate those bitches, but they were unsucessful, their loos for not actually watching a masterpiece in the works.

Well, I just got back from Kill Bill, and I have to say I LOVED IT! The editing, action, and dialogue all kicked ass but what floored me was the soundtrack. Everytime they closed up on Uma's eyes and that theme kicked in, you knew some shit was going down.

I even will go to the length to say that this movie was better than Pulp Fiction. To anybody that hasn't seen this movie, leave your computer and go see it.. NOW!

I also LOVED Kill Bill. Basically, it seems Tarantino has spent the past 5 years doing nothing but watching anime. But hey, I also love me some anime- so it worked well for me. If you have a problem with the anime theory that all people have about 20 gallons of blood in their body, held at extreme pressure at all time, you may not want to see this movie. Some people in the theatre walked out during the fight sequences. Of course some people brought kids that looked about 6 to the theater too. What kind of fucker brings a 6-year-old to an R rated movie?


Also, there were a few times you could sort of tell that things were cut to get the R rating. I assume some of the black and white was for the same reason. I almost wish the cuts weren't made and it was left NC-17, it would have kept all the lousy parents from bringing the small kids.

I'm going to have to agree with TheLurkingHorror.

I would have to say that it was a fine film, full of potential up to O-Ren's origin, then it lost me. Tarantino has become the Vince Russo of the motion picture industry. Too many ideas vying for screen time, too many yes-men, no one saying "maybe you should go a different way". Gore for gore's sake is pointless and lazy.

Much like Punch Drunk Love (which was Paul Thomas Anderson's horrible attempt at making a French film) Kill Bill Volume One apes the styles of foreign films (this time Japanese and Chinese) without actually comprehending the cultural influences those films were shaped by.

Volume Two will go unwatched by the Zundian household.

Or it's an homage to those films, which is what Tarantino (and even Anderson, I think) said all along.


And what culutral influences do you need to understand, say, "Streetfighter?" This isn't supposed to be "Yojimbo" or even any of the Zatoichi movies, it's supposed to be "Flying Guilloitines of Death."

I must say that O-Ren's origin was a bit too long for my taste. Besides that, I can't find too much wrong with this movie. It's like "Crouching Tiger;" a slightly toned down (or, in this case, toned up) martial arts movie that isn't really as good as the movies it apes, but is decent, and cool to see on a big screen. If only going to movie theaters didn't mean dealing with hordes of hoosiers showing up 30 minutes late and calling their friends to come in the theater, then leaving early, it would have been a lot more fun.

The current BWF Women's Champion says:


I saw it today with my dad. THAT WAS FUCKIN' AWESOME! It's like a live action anime (and I'm a very big anime fan). The fight scenes were great. Finally, I can't complain that chicks never get good fight scenes! I also loved how they actually took the time to explain one of the bad guys (O-Ren) since a lot of movies don't bother. Now I'm curious as to what "The Bride"'s background story is as the rest of the characters, but I'm hoping they'll explain it in the next movie.

Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu (I was suprised with Lucy) were great in this film. The Go Go Yubari character was cool too (can't remember the actress's name).

Definetly seeing the second part AND getting the DVD, hell I might watch it again.

According to a Tarantino interview in a recent Newsweek, the talking and the bride's backstory got pushed into Vol. 2. This is the action movie that Tarantino wanted to make.

With luck, I'll get to see this maybe next weekend.



Low tide for the time being.
