I was a little disappointed at the end of Kill Bill 1 but after I saw Kill Bill 2 I felt that Kill Bill 1 was redeemed somehow. Seeing Kill Bill 1 and Kill Bill 2 together as one whole movie it works for me. I just didn’t like Kill Bill 1 as a stand alone movie. I know QT has said that it works either way. You can watch both as one big movie or 2 stand alone movies. I’m not sure I agree with him on that point.
From a financial standpoint, it probably was a good idea to split the two movies up. From an artistic standpoint, I don’t think it was. I don’t think QT wrote it with that intention. I think QT stating that it works as two separate movies is his way of selling it to the public.
Wow, I feel completely different. I think they work perfectly as stand alone movies. I got a chanche to see Vol.1 in a cinema again last week, and though I saw it roughly 30 times before I almost cried at two points during the movie because it was just so awesome.
The pacing and feel are very different to each Volume. We all know it was intended as one giant movie from the start, but in the process it was clearly edited into 2 stand alone Volumes that work great on each own. They work so well infact, that I wonder if “The Whole Bloody Affair” even works as well as the Volumes do.
I’m surprised none of you death proof bashers out there have flooded this topic yet
oh they’ll be here. There’s just too many of those self-proclaimed QT fans who think RD and PF are great and the rest is just ho-hum. Idiots.
