Haven’t seen yet the movie :’( Isn’t released yet there… But I can’t wait !

Yeah…You should really see that movie…Its soo great. Robert Rodriguez just proved once again he can make great movies instead of spy-kids.


#4

i dont hink he cut an ear off. i remeber him shooting the ear off of the pedofile when there on the dock.


#5

I noticed the TOILET CAM (If there is such a thing) used in Kill Bill Vol. II In the battle of the gargantuan blondes. I’m talking about the scene when Clive Owen shoves Benicio’s face in his own piss. I thought that was kind of a reference.

#8

I was gonna say, I don’t remember Hartigan cutting anyone’s ear off.

nd how would this be a reservoir dogs referance ne way it would be the other way around because dident the comics come out before reservoir dogs?

I think they came out around the same time, early 90’s.


#15

yeaa but still they could never referance each other coming out so close to each other and the sin city storys where probably written before reservoir dogs was released.


#16

Anywho, in RD QT is paying hommage to Django, which I’m sure everyone knows. So he defintely isn’t paying hommage to Sin City.


#17

never scene Django. but i always thought it was a referance to the toxic avenger 2, because tarantino said he was influenced alot by troma films, and in the toxic avenger 2 he rips a guys ear off and says the line that blonde says into the ear.


#18

Huh. I’ve never seen that. Maybe he’s paying hommage to both.


#19

yea and in black ceasar fred williamson kuts a guys ear off with a straight razor.

hey JRS that’s pretty interesting…explain what you mean, I don’t really get it!

beside of the fact that Django is a rat serving his own interests, I don’t get the reference you’re talking about
