FOX FORCE FIVE is THE DEADLY VIPER SQUAD!


#1

I think that Quentin used the FOX FORCE FIVE to imitate THE DEADLY VIPER SQUAD.



MIA: Played an expert with knifes

THE BRIDE: Knife fight=Samuria sowrds



THE BLACK GIRL: Demolition expert.

VERITA GREEN: Resimbles a demolitin expert



THE JAP: Kug Fu expert

O-REN ISHI: Kug Fu fighter/expert



THE FRENCH: Sex

ELLE DRIVER: Lover of Bill



SUMMERSET O’NEAL: The leader

BILL: The leader



This is all coming close together very much.



What do you think?

One, i can’t believe you called the asian one a “JAB”, what the fuck?

Two, how does the black one “Resimble” a demolition expert?



You’ve got a point, but choose words carefully. This is also somewhere else on the site as well.



Also, Mia was supposed to be the deadliest weopon in the world with a knife. That’s Vivica’s part. She IS the deadliest woman in the world with a knife, according to BILL!!!

The Fox Force Five pilot was a corny knock off of Charlies Angels (the tv show, obviously) but with four women instead of three - of course, Quentin is too clever to do have a completely identical rip off of another idea in his dialogue, so he meshed it all with some other ideas/concepts.



Thurman - Kung Fu expert



Fox - The Knife Expert



Lui - she’s more of a weapon’s expert based on the anime flashback, but being in any form of the mob, Yakuza or Mafia, she prolly knows a thing or two about explosives.



Hannah - the one with the specialty for sex



Madsen - the Bosley like, go between for the DIVAs and Bill



Bill - Charlie - the enigmatic boss man whom we never see.



Obviously, it was never QT’s intention to even imitate something as ultra crappy as the Charlie’s Angels movies, but it wouldn’t surprise me if a darker, twisted, bloodier version of the old seventies show was in the back of his mind when he began to develop the idea.

It was just a thought that I wanted to share.

Sophie is the french expert in sex. She showed me last night.

Been there, done that. We’ve all tried to make connections to the Fox force Five and the DiVAS. Doesn’t work. We’ve all done it. In my “Kill Bill’s homage to other QT movies” topic I could’ve put FF5=DiVAS, but I didn’t because it wasn’t even worth mentioning. If QT wanted to make the DiVAS a reference to FF5 he wouldn’t have made it that vague. Vernita does not “resemble” a demolition expert in anyway. She looks like an expert at shooting guns through a cereal box for crying out loud. Or not. The “Jap Girl” as you so call her is probably not good at Kung Fu. We have no proof. Is it because she’s Asian you automatically assume that Lucy Lui can bust a “Bruce Lee” on Uma’s ass? She’s into swords and shit, she’s a samurai, who knows if she does Kung-Fu. For all we know, she only has a tangerine belt in karate. Vernita seems like the Kung-Fu expert if ya ask me. And Elle Driver, she’s white, hmmm, okay! She’s automatically French and likes to fuck! Wee wee!



Naaaaaaah. Maybe the Mia with knives thing makes sense but comparing them to FF5 is just stupid. WAAAAAAAY too vague. It’s okay Reservoir Dude, you’re cool, I made a silly attempt to connect em both together too.

Very funny, ;D


#8

Fox Force Five, and Death List Five I think have some reference towards one another, but not the DiVAS. There are five people in FF5, and five people in DL5, and the wording is the same.


#9

FFF =/= DiVAS



It isn’t, QT said that. Because, the FFF are special agents, but the DiVAS are assassins. It’s not the same. Tarantino said that.


#10

Yeah, but there’s a kinda correlation. He said that the DIVAs are the flip side of the Fox Force Five. Kinda like real world in comic books and Bizarro world.



That could be the subject of a hilarious and violent anime, though. “Fox Force Five vs. The DIVAs”.


#11

Thank you for clearing this up for me.

I’m surprised there wasn’t any bloodshead. ;D


#12

To me Kill Bill’s Deadly Viper assassination Squad is a nod to “The Venoms”, a group of martial arts actors working for Shaw Brothers Studios. An entire book could be written on the Venom’s body of work, but their most well-known films are probably ‘The Five Deadly Venoms’ and 'Return of Five Deadly Venoms’





Arre!

Having that conection beween Pulp and Kill Bill just goes to show what a fuckin’ genius he is ;D

You’re kidding right? First you didn’t even correctly spell what he refered to them as. Which it was simply an abbreviation. Second you have a problem with that when one of your favorite movies of all time constantly uses the word “nigger?” What a hypocrite. Third did anyone notice how the cereal box that Fox had “Kaboom” on it?


#16

Yeah, it had Kaboom on it because there was a gun in it.



Death List Five being the title of the death list is a connection to Pulp Fiction. Also, when The Bride and Vernita are talking in the kitchen and the Bride mentions something about being “square” and then draws a square with her finger, just like Mia does in front of Jack Rabbit Slim’s.


#17

However… it would have been awesome if Kill Bill was actually an episode of Fox Force Five. I know it’s not, but it’s fun to think about.
