Does anyone know if Kill Bill The Whole Bloody Affair will be edited in any other way. Or will it just be uncut volume 1 then intermission then Volume 2 cause that would kind of disappoint me.
I heard they filmed the Yuki’s Revenge Chapter so will that be in TWBA cause I would love for that to happen. It just seems pointless filming a scene most people love that you spent your time and money on then never use it.
So will that be in TWBA and will it be re-edited a little or is it just kill bill 1 intermission then kill bill 2[/quote]
TWBA (minus the new anime sequence) has been available for years, yet for some reason people just don’t know it yet.
Remember a few years back when Empire reviewed the Cannes version which stated all the stuff that was different?
* No “klingon proverb” quote. Instead a dedication
* HOBL fight massacre in color, slightly differently cut
* gorier anime scenes
* various other scenes slightly longer
* Sofie Fatale loses more limbs
* no “baby” cliffhanger ending
* short (music-accompanied) intermission between two parts
* Volume 2 is not different
I’ve been using this guide and the uncut Japanese DVDs to watch what is essentially a DIY version of TWBA, that I’m 99.99% positive is correct. Anytime a movie has an intermission usually the screen will go black. After The Bride utters the line “and I want them all to know they’ll all soon be as dead as O-Ren” the music stops and the screen goes black.
There’s your intermission. What follows is essentially a preview of Vol. 2 and of course the cliffhanger ending. There is no other point between the cliffhanger and fade to black where an intermission would make sense.
Anyway take an intermission if you like and after you pop in Vol. 2 just simply go to chapter select and select chapter 2. The film continues on and there you have it. You’ve now seen The Whole Bloody Affair. When done this way Kill Bill no longer feels like 2 different films, but one long film. The difference in pacing between part 1 and 2 are no longer jarring and the film reveals itself for what it truly is. An epic tale of bloody revenge and in my opinion Quentin Tarantino’s greatest masterwork.
There is no doubt in my mind that had the movie been released as originally intended it would have been at least nominated for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay and possibly best picture. Cutting Kill Bill in two was a mistake and I implore everyone to see the film as originally intended.
