Leo asked me to write a review of Kill Bill: Volume One, and thankfully for you, itís one of the few flics Iíve seen lately. Because if he had asked me to write a review for Elephant, or The Matrix Revolutions, or something else that I hadnít seenÖ You see where that would have posed a problem. But I have seen the first part of Kill Bill, so I can write a review.
I take back my ďthankfully for youĒ comment. Iím starting to think that youíd be better off without this review, but whatever. Iím writing it, and youíre reading it.
A bunch of people seem to have loved the movie. I loved the first half of the movie, and was pretty indifferent to the second half (save a few sequences). So Iím annoyed at this whole Two Movies deal because I donít feel this movie was strong enough to hold its own as its own movie.
*Turns on the new Joel Plaskett Emergency album, ďTruthfully TruthfullyĒ (which everyone should go buy)*
HmmmÖ Iím seriously having a hard time putting my mind to my task at hand right now. The distractions of life and music through headphones. Weeee! Iím so undisciplined.
Iím gonna write it like a child. I hope thatís okay.
The entire Uma Vs. Vivica A. Fox section. ďThat dog of yours came in here and acted a damn fool,Ē is one of the best lines that Tarantino has written!
Two words: ďAnimeĒ and ďAnime.Ē The sequence was really pointless, and didnít add a thing to the movie. Vivica A. Foxís character didnít get a big back-story, and I didnít care. I knew she was going to die. Same goes for Lucy Liuís character.
SONNY CHIBAAAAAAAAA!!!! Sonny Chiba really stole the movie for me. I think his scene in the restaurant is amazing, and heís a fucking superstar!
The rape stuff. YUCK!!! Not funny in any way, and just really out of place.
Go-Go Vs. Uma kicked effing ass. Even better than Uma Vs. Vivica, but without the kick ass dialogue.
The black and whitening of the big fight in the House of Blue Leaves. It looked ugly as hell, and is being shown in Asia right now, in all its red blooded glory.
That Nancy Sinatra song is soooo badass!
Not enough RZA music!
Umaís feet (Leo told me to say that).
Even if you donít like Jeff, please everyone; send him every ounce of positive energy, and all the good wishes youíve got. He needs them. Seriously!!!!!!! YOU HAVE NO IKEAÖ I meanÖ IDEA!!!!!! Idea. You have no idea.
