Here comes the bride.


I had high expectations for this film, and it did not disappoint. Awesome action, awesome music, awesome cinematography, awesome anime (yes, anime), just awesome awesome awesome. Oh and the blood -- good lord THE BLOOD! I loved it. Yes I'm a sicko. Tarantino paid tributes to a lot of old, obscure films that most of the public wouldn't notice, but that film geeks would love. You may call this "copying" or "stealing" or whatever you want, but I say he makes them his own. Look at The Matrix. That movie borrowed heavily from Hong Kong flicks, John Woo, anime, Philip K. Dick, etc. But the Wachowski brothers put all those things together and made a really cool movie that felt fresh. It's a similar case with Kill Bill. The only complaint I have is that the movie was cut in two. The way this "volume" ends, it's done really well. It leaves you wanting more. But I would have preferred it as a three-hour movie. I have to wait 'til February to find out how the whole thing ends. Guess I'm gonna have to see volume one over and over 'til then.

I think Uma can kick Keanu's ass.
