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 :p

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.

Well, in the book there are only a few pages after the main character dies. so there isn't a lot more to it. That's a beautiful scene in the book and very cinematic. At least that's what I thought when I read it. I really dislike seeing movies made from books that I've read. I'd rather see the movie first and then read the book. The book is almost always so much better than the movie.

I want to see Kill Bill, but I am a bit worried about all the violence. Usually Tarantino has such great dialogue that it is worthwhile seeing the movie anyway, but I haven't seen a lot a snappy dialogue with this movie. Anyway, I'll probably go see it this weekend.

I don't get Tarantino he makes references to Bruce Lee's Game of Death yet co-stars a man who "stole" Bruce Lee's tv series 'Kung Fu'. He can't even fight worth a $#&*.

Is he making a homage or bitchslapping Bruce in his grave. WTF!!!!!!!!!!

Besides looking at the fight scenes in this movie I doubt you can copy any of it.

I just saw the movie tonight...and I found out that I'm a big weenie. I thought the gore and bloodshed was way overdone and ended up overwhelming and burying the interesting plot and characters (I thought Monica Belucci did a great job and the Gogo schoolgirl character was amazing). Sometime around the big Matrix-esque fight between Uma Thurman and those yakuza henchmen (not really a spoiler because it's featured in the trailer and most of the ads), I my stomach turned and wanted to leave. My friend who's into animé and has seen far worse things (she tells me Akira has much stranger/nastier things in it), wasn't bothered because she could separate the plot from the unrealistic gorey bits. Unfortunately I couldn't and now I think I should go back to watching Disney. I found the experience seriously traumatic and certainly won't be going back for the conclusion :(

guess I shouldn't have expected anything different considering even something like the Mothman Prophecies freaked me out for weeks after.
Still I dunno why movies like this get to me when I can happily play GTA III for hours clubbing people to death with baseball bats flamethroweres and having sex with and then killing prostitutes with my bare hands.

I didn't like this movie at all. The only good things were:

1. Uma Thurman's performance.
2. Some wonderful Art Direction and Costume Design (particularly "House of Blue Leaves" and Lucy Liu's traditional Japanese outfit, respectively).
3. Waaay Cool Soundtrack particularly the track "Battle without honor or humanity".

The rest was garbage.

Sam? Unnecessary violence? It's a movie about ritual combat and honorable vengeance. Seems like you missed the whole boat on thisone. Or maybe you've been blinded by all the blood and severed limbs.
Look at it this way: Woman gets ass whooped by 6 baddies and they kill her unborn baby in the process. Someone has to die.

I've seen the movie and it was pretty good. Haven't seen that kind of quality in fightsequences since "Legend of the Drunken Master" by Jacky Chan. Can't wait for part 2.

I saw the movie yesterday and I liked it. But the major flaw with the movie, for me personally, was that I didn't sympathize enough with Uma Thurman's character.

I fully understood her back story and all the shit that she went through, but I kept hoping that she'd get her ass kicked at many points in the movie. I don't think Tarantino spent enough time on her backstory and didn't successfully convey (to me, at least) why we are supposed to be on her side to the point that we should advocate her killing everyone.

The only time I was rooting for Uma was when Elle Driver was about to do euthanase her, and when the orderly brought along a friend to have sex with Uma's comatose body.

When Uma fought Vivica A. Fox, I was really hoping that Vivica was going to open a can of whoop-ass on Uma. And when Lucy Liu and Uma had their showdown, I was strongly rooting for Lucy to slice and dice Uma's ass. When Uma chopped off Sophie's arm, I found it reckless and felt overwhelming compassion for Sophie. I know each of these women screwed Uma over, but I couldn't help feeling sorrier for them than her. O-Ren's backstory was enough to have me on her side.

I love Uma in most of the movies she's been in and this was no exception, but I just couldn't sympathize with her character. There was just something wrong about an Amazonian White girl beating up on an Asian girl and a Black girl.

It'll be different when the Amazonian White girl goes up against another Amazonian White girl (Darryl Hannah).

Otherwise, I liked the movie. Looking forward to Uma against Elle. If O-Ren was a tough bitch and Gogo was insane, what must Elle Driver be like? "Kill Bill" gets two groovy thumbs up! :)

what? why try making it a racial issue? should white people only kill white people, and asian people only kill asian people, and black people only kill black people, etc, in movies? will that make it "more right" for you?

the bride was PREGNANT, left the squad to get married and have a child, and they beat the shit out of her and put a bullet in her head in an attempt to kill herr, killed her unborn child, her groom, and everyone else on her WEDDING DAY. hmmmm... i think thats the perfect set-up for a revenge story. but you couldnt sympathize cos shes white and she kills an asian girl and a black girl, right? thats just ridiculous

Race wasn't the overwhelming factor as to why I didn't sympathize enough with Uma's character. Or that everyone should. The fact that Lucy and Vivica were Asian and Black was just a physical thing that dawned on me as I was writing my post. Nowhere did I say anything about people of the same race only being allowed to kill each other in movies. Those were your words. Now that I think about it, the Amazonian White girl beating up on the Asian girl and the Black girl reads like a provocative analogy of the peacekeeping of crime in Western society - big brother is always white.

I also stated that I felt Tarantino didn't give us more of "The Bride's" backstory (like the great job he did for O-Ren Onishii) and that perhaps if he did, I'd feel she was doing it for more than a simple act of revenge. "The Bride's" backstory had to have run deeper than the wedding, the pregnancy and her attempted murder. They're all murderers. What makes her so special that she didn't deserve to have her own life shortened? These things were never answered.

From what I gather without her full backstory, "The Bride" is no better than the people she's getting her revenge on. She WAS one of them after all. And she still IS. That is MY main reason for not being able to sympathize with her. What ever happened to her at the start goes out the window because she's not really a victim anymore. She is empowered by her ability to kill and the fact that she's killing. She is just another murderer out on a revenge slaying.

How often does someone sympathize with murderers in movies? It doesn't change the fact it was a good movie but my criticism is directed towards that part of it. The movie is not black and white (ooh, double meaning, right? Ooh, kill me.) and neither are Tarantino's movies whether consciously or subconsciously on his part.

Poe
Oct 22nd, 2003, 03:37 PM
Maybe you're not supposed to sympathize with her. It's true they were all assassins, and killing her unborn child (at least she thinks it was killed and that's all that matters) and shooting her in the head is enough reason for some insane revenge on her part. THat doesn't mean you're supposed to be feeling "oh poor uma" while she's chopping people's limbs off. She's crazy with rage and I dont think Quentin was necessarily trying to make audiences feel like the targets of her revenge deserved it. Maybe I'm wrong but it's just another way of looking at it. It's a story about assassins and one's just more pissed off than the rest. There doesn't always have to be a "good guy" or "hero" in every film.

My thread has found its second wind. :lol:

I like the film a lot, as I've mentioned in another thread. It had a strange addictive quality about it, because of all the references to other films. It's like you're watching 30 movies in one.

I too did not sympathize with The Bride that much. Her back-story wasn't explored and the wedding scene was just a snippet of the whole wedding segment (which will be in Volume 2).

Anyway, I've studied the trailers and pictures and read the draft script, and I know about some of the segments of Volume 2. It will have more dialog and there will be a b*tchfight. ;)

I hate kung fu. I hate all Asian martial arts movies. Except Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and that was because it was set in medievel China and had huge elements of fantasy to it. And not to mention romance. I see CTHD as more of a poetic romance movie than an action martial arts movie.

Anyway, yes the violence was unnecesarry. What some kids want to play with knives because of this film? Uma putting a knife through that black girl's chest may look "cool" on screen but it sure isn't in real life.

I saw this film yesterday and though I didn't pick up on those references (probably because I saw Game of Death when I was about ten) I found myself strangely reminded of that film.

I enjoyed the film but I can understand how some could not have coped with the violence / not found the martial arts appealing. It would have been nice if the fight between her and Lucy Liu could have lasted a bit longer - after all that build up it was a bit of an anticlimax :o, maybe they'd overrun their red paint budget by then ;).

Looking forward to the next part.

I agree. I was also expecting this really awesome fight between them after all that build up and I was a bit disapointed with it. Lucy's bodyguard gave Uma a better fight than she did.

But over all i thought it was a great film.

Honestly, it was far too gory for me. Even the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was that gory. I thought the tremendous violence was unnecessary, but I have to take into consideration that the type of people in Tarantino's movies are not people you would want to be friends with anyway.

Still, I thought it was a uniquely creative film, although nothing Tarantino ever does now will top his achievement with Pulp Fiction.

Oct 24th, 2003, 05:26 PM
I thought the movie was great, the music and long stares between the differnt characters added loads to the movie. I think all of the characters had a sad story to tell , so i dont think tarantino wanted everybody to just feel sorry for Uma. Lucy luis character had a terrible childhood, and vivica fox being killed near enough in front of her child was horrible aswell. So all had a certain element of sympathy.

I thought it was wierd that thy kept bleeping out Uma's name when she said it, i think it was beatrix :-), or something similiar.

Over all i give it an "A"

I just saw the movie for the second time, and I can say that I enjoyed every little bit as much as the first time I watched it :) ... few considerations:

- Uma Thurman's character and motives were not fully developped but should be an important part of Volume II;

- Lucy Liu is amazingly beautiful, and a single close-up of her face and eyes makes the "exotic" looking Uma look bland;

- Like the sequence in "The Matrix Reloaded" where Neo fights dozens of Agents Smith, the fight in the restaurant between Uma and the whole yazuka gang was a little bit over the top and tiresome. Tarantino probably knew about this and tried to make the subsequent fight between Uma and Lucy more subdued and artistic. Considering the supposed fighting skills of the ladies involved, they rather looked clumsy and slow. The scene though was strikingly beautiful, the softness of the snowed Japanese garden muffled the exposed violence. When Uma slashes Lucy Liu's shin and the absolute red blood flows slowly against the backdrop of the white kimono and snow, that was poetry in frames...

- The fight between Uma and GoGo was certainly the climax of the movie, very well choreographed and creative... GoGo's face and expressions are visually magnetic, full of both innocence and evil, and she makes a credible and creepy assassin;

- Tarantino is just a genius when it comes to adding the right soundtrack to the fitting scene, first seen in the amazing Pulp Fiction and continued with Kill Bill. The movie lacks a little of depth and plot development, but those flaws are supposedly due to Kill Bill being a half of a project. It is also a self-conscious movie, one that plays for its coolness for itself and also as an idle exercise of talent, since the beginning of the credits in technicolor and risqué sound to the weapon of choice, a cool and intelectual samurai sword. It is gore but in the end, surprisingly light entertainment, that asks the expectators to forget about plot holes and incongruenties (such as a major absence of firearms and police) in exchange to leading them through a rich trip.
