Saw Kill Bill Vol.2. LOVE the film! LOVE! Thank you Quentain Tarantino for making this film. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Budd is pretty cool.

Elle, the skinny bitch, is just awesome.

PeiMei is Teh Shit.

Bill is sorta, kinda, well, really sweet, and a geek (and Tarantino is so trying to live through him).

But it is The Bride that Rocks My World. Mummy, I want to be her when I grow up.

I never thought I'd be thankful for all film/context English units I had to do, but damn, they paid off. And thank the gods that I grew up watching '70's/80's American cop dramas, and KungFu films from the same era. And YES, there was comic reference, YES! I understood, and spotted most of them! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

You don't need to know any of the above to enjoy the film (the action and the gore is enough). But ohhh, if you know all the culture references/icons, know the different film styles, and can recognise the different camera angles Tarantino uses from the different eras (he used FILM NOIR!) it make everything that much more awesome, that much more enjoyable.

The only thing I wasn't too strong on was the music, for which, [ profile] petronia is much better suited at explaining.

I LOVE this film! And Tarantino is right, the film shouldn't be viewed as a separate entity from the Vol.1, the two films are one. Deal with it.

Saw Kill Bill today (yesterday). It's brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Hell, go and read [ profile] petronia's <>entry on the film. I agree with everything she says. Also, I'm not giving away any of the plot. Nope, nada. You'll just have to put up with the bits and pieces of random info I'm dropping.

This film have everything. Samurais, an assassination squad, a wedding, a psychotic-sailorfuku-wearing Japanese-school-girl. And blood, lots, and lots of blood. But above everything else, the movie have style. I haven't being this impressed by a film since, since, since... hell, I can't remember the last time I came out of a cinema feeling so satisfied and -wanting- to re-watch the film immediately.

I wish I was better educated or at least more of a by-product of mass media. At least that way I can appreciated it more. Much more.
