I just got back from seeing Kill Bill, so if you haven't seen it and don't want to be spoiled, go away now.
Quentin T. has just surpassed all expectations I had of him as a director. the first installment of Kill Bill was excellent. The film follows the usual direction of his, with certain parts of the story being told out of order, but it always works. The fights, the blood, the way the film didn't take itself too seriously, I loved it all! My favorite part of the film was the backstory that was told about Cottonmouth. A majority of that backstorywas animated! And it worked well!
Uma Thurman played the part of this revenge seeking bride well, and what was the deal with her name getting bleeped out whenever someone said it? I guess I'll just call her the Bride. A unmerciful killing machine out to get revenge has been done before, but this character felt fresh.
There were some scenes in the film that made me jump, yes I was startled. I didn't expect it at all, but BAM, then I jump and look foolish. Well, I need to sort some of that movie out in my brain for the time being, but I'd love to hear what anyone else has to say about this movie.
