[quote]So I was watching Ichi the Killer for the first time yesterday (8/10, but might go up after 2nd viewing), and when one of the mob bosses was screaming at Kuhirakuna (that guy with the cheek vaginas), I thought, “Geeze, that’s Boss Tanaka!”
Ichi - Yakuza Girl
Kill Bill - Charlie Brown’s wife!
Shun Sugata - Takayama
Weird Looking Dude
Ichi - Karen telling him how she killed a dog as a child
Kill Bill - Guy Gogo gruesomely gutted, glorifying gore. (6 “g”'s. New record)
I doubt it’s coincidence, I mean, the weird looking guy was the same type of guy in both movies, Jun had the exact same angry look in both, and why else would a screenwriter who did a small cameo in his film be given a part in a Hollywood movie?
Quentin loves Ichi so I guess he was hooking them up. Pretty cool, you ask me.[/quote]
Ã‚Â Just so you know, Yuki is the broad who's apartment Karen and Kakihara go to to find out shit and then Kakihara breaks her fingers. Ã‚Â Shun Sugata AKA boss Benta, was the large bodyguard who didn't like watching all the violence. Ã‚Â And the "weird looking dude" is Naoto Takenaka, who is in quite a few Takashi Miike films (including Happiness of the Katakuris, on of my favorite films). Ã‚Â I think the only people QT didn't put in Vol.1 were my 2 favorite Japanese actors, Tadanobu Asano and Kenichi Endo.
BTW, who the hell is Kuhirakuna??? Ã‚Â Are you referring to Kakihara?
If you couldn't tell already, Ichi the Killer is my favorite film.
Edit: Also note that in the House of Blue Leaves chapter, one of the Crazy 88's gets his mouth sliced a la Kakihara's signature "smile", then after flipping off of one guy's shoulder's, the bride chops a guy in 2, like Ichi does to that one bastard. Ã‚Â it's easier to see when you have the Japanese version that's in color ;)
