Shogun Ninja:The way the sword has a part In the storyline. The name Hanzo Hattori comes from this movie.



no, it comes from the tv show ‘‘Kage No Gundan’’ with Sonny Chiba

Hattori Hanzo is a character from Japanese history and legend. He has been around in Japanese culture for a long time. He has been a character in many different stories, books, manga, anime, folk songs and films for a long time.

For more information on him read this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hattori_Hanzo

Though I believe the Hattori Hanzo played by Sonny Chiba in Kill Bill is supposed to be (as imagined by Quentin) a descendant of Hattori Hanzo (as played by Sonny Chiba) in Kage no Gundam.

Well this may not be a reference but I’ll mention it anyway:



As we know, QT is a big fan of the Coen Brothers. In the their film “Miller’s Crossing” there is a scene where two men come to kill the character ‘Leo’ in his bedroom. Leo hears them coming and gets himself on the floor under his bed. As the men enter the room, he sees the two men’s feet and a bit of their lower legs. Leo shoots one of them (on the leg), he falls to the floor, and then he shoots him again on the head. The other man runs away.



This scene is reminiscent to a similar scene in the anime segment of Kill Bill: Volume 1 right after O-Ren kills Boss Matsumoto.

Yeah, Hattori Hanzo also appears in Shinobi (and so do other historical characters like Tokugawa Ieyasu). But when talking about Kill Bill, QT was definitely referencing “Kage No Gundan”.

The scene when the The Bride and Elle Driver fight in the trailer looks similar to the “Raising Arizona” fight scene.

Word. And we know that Tarantino is a Coen Brothers fan, so.

''The speech given to Copperhead’s daughter after her mother’s assassination is identical to the speech given in the Takashi Miike film, Rainy Dog, after the murder of a young boy’s assassin father. ‘’

The Crazy 88’s. Now I don’t want to accuse QT of being a Nazi or anti-Semitic (that would be stupid and wrong) but the number 88 is a disturbing number (as is 18). The letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet. 88 = HH = Heil Hitler. 88 being used as a secret code between Nazis on the internet. There was/is/I hope was a far right English organisation called Combat 18 (the number being code for Adolf Hitler). So when Beatrix Kiddo slaughters the Crazy 88’s it’s morally justified.

Haha, that almost seems a little far fetched…


#295

Seems like your trying to hard to find a reference to me.


#296

I do agree 100% with Clinton Morgan. I don’t know if QT thought of this. But 88 and 18 are really meaningful numbers. And when you know about hitlerian codes, you can not think of something else. Of course, now it’s more a symbol of evil, and not necessarily nazis but still…

Here’s a pic from that scene in Spoorloos:







It reminded me of Kill Bill too and it’s also listed as a reference on IMDb.


#298

Thanks I looked everywhere for that picture ;D


#299

You’ve seen the original Dutch version too? Or only the remake?


#300

I’ve seen both and the original blows the remake away.Its such a brillant movie that keeps you on the edge of your chair to the last minute.
