"Kill Bill" thread

Anyone seen "Kill Bill" yet?

I won't get a chance to see it until Sunday, Oct. 12. I have to work on Friday and Saturday .

I heard a lot of stuff on other various forums.

I heard that it's the most violent American-made film ever.

The movie is in 2 volumes. I don't think anyone can stomach 3.5 hours of ultra-violence. Volume 1 will be released on Oct. 10 and volume 2 will be coming in Feb. 2004.

Quentin Tarantino doesn't hold anything back. He lets it all loose. He doesn't let the censors force him to make a less-violent tamer version of his work.

This film is Tarantino's take on Asian cinema. This film has many influences from Chinese sword-fighting films to Japanese anime. There is even a Japanese-anime-style segment in this film. Some of the Asian actors in this film have appeared in some of the Asian films that influenced this film.

It has the classic Tarantino signatures - the style, the music, the cinematography, the violence, and the references to the movies that influenced it. And the fight scenes are top-notch, from what I hear.

One major thing that will be different in this film than his previous films is that the dialogue is not a main focal point, but I think that's done on purpose because the films that influenced this film were not dialogue-driven anyway.

I can't wait to finally see it.

Sam, I have to be honest... your obsession with Cold Mountain has all but made me lose any remote interest I would have ever had in that movie. Your overkill enthusiasm has made something that normally I'd have considered enjoyable, intollerable. Congratuations, you've just given me a first hand example of the over justification effect

I'm thinking Sam must have points in that movie.

Uma kills a woman while her child is present. That's pretty gruesome

And the only thing I want to know about Cold Mountain is whether the makers were true to the book and the Jude Law character dies at the end.

Yes Anthony Minghella has stayed true to the book, and Jude Law does die at the end. I have read this in a script review and also various other extremely positive film reviews.

Yes, you are! Please forget about the movie for little while and have a look at different movies such as Kill Bill!

I know you're crazy but I'll take your word and I'll come back with a better strategy.

Back to the drawing board for me then.

That's not how the movie ends but... There's a lot more to it.
