KILL BILL is the up and coming new film from "Hollywood Wizkid," Quentin Tarantino, which should be hitting a threatre near you October 10, or later, I believe this tentative release date also applies to countries other than than the US.

The follwing links are to a rather decent fan site for the film:


The site also has an early draft of the script, which I haven't decided whether to read first or see the film first, obviously there will be a few changes.

So, I'm curious to know what the general population thinks of Quentin Tarantino's work. Hate it? love it? Don't know? Don't care?

I think Tarantinos' genius borderline psycho, but that's what I love about him. I loved the sequence he directed for 1$ in Sin City. The sequence where Clive Owen is hallucinating, and conversing with Benicio Del Toro's severed head. Awesome.

Kill Bill Vol 2. was dissapointing compared to Kill Bill VOl 1. I love Quintan Terrantino's work, though it's amazing. Sometimes I get so sick of the typical Hollywood blockbuster storyline so mixing it up like he does keeps you intrigued and motivated to watch it.

When we were on the verge of leaving we went to see Pulp Fiction with a friend of mine, think she’s still in. Half way through the film we went and got or money back (due to the violence), oh how times have changed.

LOL, I didn't get my money back, but in '96 we walked out of Clive Barker's Lord Of Illusions and. Since then I've seen it over and over. Around the same time, I walked out of Johnny Mnemonic at the scene where Dolph character, the preacher, starts his killing with the knife in his Bible. I got mad because I said it made Christians look bad.(reply to this comment

Tarantino films kick ass. Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Dusk Til Dawn are his best; in that order. Haven't seen Kill Bill yet.

Except for the fact that he didn't direct From Dusk. And have you seen Jackie Brown? Ooooh, the irresistable Pam Grier makes Tony smile. Also check out Four Rooms, as he directed the "4th" room or story. He is also an uncredited writer for portions of The Hunt For Red October. Finally, he wrote the story of Natural Born Killers, which was directed by the great Oliver Stone. He hates what Oliver did with, but I 've read his original script and seen the movies a million times, they're both great.(reply to this comment

Yeh, it was an international simultanious release - saw a preview here in London last night, was a really good watch, good fun and all. Will see the second instalment but am not as compelled as with the Lord of the Rings (or even the Potter trilogy for that matter). Kill Bill was brilliant as a visual spectacle but plot twists in the second half would be wasted as the film doesn't leave you with a strong enough tention/compelling curiosity/impatience for the rest.

Highlight: animation

Yes, it was a piece of crap, a celebration of all that is wrong in American cinema today (notice I didn't use the word 'film') Let's see, if we have no acting talent, no story, and no skill as a director we can just put in some more cheap special effects and still charge all you morons 8.50 to watch it. Oh and because I'm Tarantino and none of you have had an opinion of your own since you were 2 you'll all love it and suck up to me for it, especially the women, who despite constantly claiming that wars are a product of male testosterone, secretly long for the chance to put on a disgusting yellow jumpsuit and hack people to bits. I almost walked out of that scene at the beginning where Vivica A Dumb Slut and Uma "I can't act" Thurman force every actor ever to have lived to turn over in his or her grave with their hideous hammification. I wish I had, because by the end of the movie (notice I didn't say 'film' that time either!) I wanted to "Kill Quentin"!(reply to this comment

I liked part Kill Bill 1.

The cheesy lines, the cheap effects, the Kurosawa rip-offs, the unrealistic action, the intentional overacting. It all made for a ridiculously wild and enjoyable film. The animated sequence showing Lucy's background was done very well. The only part that I didn't like was the way he propped Lucy Liu to take command of the Yakuza, which wasn't very welcome (I'm a Yak movie fan). But again, Tarantino would have done that also intentionally. Reservoir Dogs was the best foreign Yakuza style movie ever made, and is definitely one of my favorites. I suppose Quentin Tarantino's movies aren't enjoyable to all audiences, but for me he ranks high along with Guy Ritchie.(reply to this comment

Joe you are a stupid, stupid little man. Tarantinos movies have a style that is suppose to horrify ignorant pricks like you. Kill bill is fantastic cinema and a wonderful film BEACUSE of the stupidity(cheap special effects) invloved.

You completely forget that Quintens movies are a throw back to the seventies; to old westerns, samauri films and stories that involved more plot and stupid dialog then special effects.

So just for a moment, forget that you're jacking yourself off along side the rest of your drama major buddies and enjoy the fucking movie.(reply to this comment

I loved it becaused it was over-the-top and in-your-face shameless and defiant self-gratification on the part of Mr. Tarantino.

If this film is an example of what's wrong with American film, as Joe Hopefull film critic put it, then it's an example of what's wrong with the world's films - international films - Hong Kong Fu and European exploitation flicks in particular, without which, Kill Bill would most probably never have been realized, unless I were given the proper funding. But that bastard Quentin beat me to it. :(

Joe, shut-up, grab a bag of popcorn, sit back and enjoy the sexy rage of the killer females in this film, (notice that I did say 'film').(reply to this comment

heh, surely you weren't expecting an arthouse epic?

I watched it, I enjoyed it, but then I knew that the only thing worth watching in was going to be the gore (funny) and the effects (not bad)

Not every film (or movie) has to be deep, some are made for people who enjoy the occasional flood of senseless violence barely covered by a plot, woohoo.(reply to this comment

Tarantino's Kill Bill Cut Down the Middle for Two-Part Release

Wednesday, July 16, 2003

LOS ANGELES — Quentin Tarantino (search)'s action flick Kill Bill is hitting theaters on the installment plan.

Instead of releasing what would be roughly a three-hour film, distributor Miramax is splitting Kill Bill into two parts of about 90 minutes each.
Part one will debut Oct. 10, the original release date scheduled for the film. A date for the second installment hasn't been determined, though it could come two to six months later, Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein told The New York Times in Wednesday's editions.
The move allows writer-director Tarantino to get his full story before audiences and avoid potential cuts to get it down to a more viewer-friendly length. Miramax has feuded with directors in the past on film edits, including Martin Scorsese on Gangs of New York and Billy Bob Thornton on All the Pretty Horses.

Kill Bill, Tarantino's first film since 1997's Jackie Brown, stars Uma Thurman as an assassin out for revenge against a hit man who tried to kill her.

Miramax wanted to be accommodating with Tarantino, whose 1994 crime romp, Pulp Fiction, a $100-million hit, helped establish the Disney-owned distributor as a major Hollywood player.
"We believe in him. He's somebody we have a great track record with," Miramax spokesman Paul Pflug said Wednesday. "He's one of the key factors why Miramax has become who it is."
Cutting Kill Bill in two carries risks for Miramax, which will have to pay advertising and distribution costs on two movies instead of one. But if Kill Bill succeeds, Miramax stands to profit because viewers will be paying twice to see the film's two parts.

I almost hope this movie flops then, because otherwise Quentin might decide to go off and become another George Lucas, releasing the second half of a major epic in three episodes at 3 year intervals, and never releasing the first half until 20 years later. Bastards.(reply to this comment

I am looking forward to viewing KILL BILL. I think Tarantino is one of the best directors around, along with a handful of European film makers. I will never get bored from watching Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, mainly because the dialogue in these films is so original, emphasized by actors who are more actors than they are stars. People who know how to act. I like the way he's going to release KILL BILL, read the article below:

The geezer is very talented IMO. His movies are very violent (which is not really my cup of tea) but I still find myself wanting to watch them (which is unusual for me, just ask my husband!!) I'm super picky about movies. If I get a whiff of "corny cringy American bullshit" (sorry guys!) I refuse to see it. I can't stand to waste my time watching actors who can't act, in other words, they behave as themselves in every movie, e.g. Rene Zelweger, (is that how you spell her name? Clit, I mean, Clint Eastwood, Kevin Costner (UUUUUUURRRRGGGG!!!Yuck!) to name a few! Now then, how many friends have I made today?! ;-)

I love his work, but I fear it may be becoming a cliche, I've noticed alot of other directors doing the extreme close-ups and the you-gotta-be-stoned-to get-it-babbling-about-nothing dialogue.

Great seeing you the other day, Antoine!

So far I like Quentin's work, it's raw and it gets you thinking about things you normally don't care for.

What is normal?!

I'll check the sites.

Take care
