Interesting to hear about the re-use of Kill Bill music. Which tunes, exactly?
I stayed away from spoilers, but I’m jazzed to hear that Harv appears!
The one in this clip:

and I can’t believe I’ve forgotten the other tune (I’m really tired). If I hear it I’ll know. Anybody care to help out?
I realised that there is quite a bit of footage in the trailers that doesn’t actually appear in the film. Also, I only read a bit of the script when it leaked, but I read one section involving feet, I mentioned it here when the subject of feet in IB came up, but I didn’t see that in the film either. He has cut quite a bit.
I watched in a small-ish room, it was an advanced screening obviously, so there were no adverts or trailers before the film. But the room was pretty much packed. I went to the very first showing of a very popular cinema in this area. I was still surprised to see so many people.
I wish I never listened to the people that claimed this to be like Kill Bill in WWII, because it isn’t like that AT ALL. It’s very different to Kill Bill. Also, although there are some very comical parts, I would say this is quite a mature Tarantino. The dialogue wasn’t as witty, but it was very serious and to the point. You can tell QT had great discipline when writing (the one-finger typewriter anectode) and it shows. So although it’s not as enjoyable as in Pulp Fiction for example, it’s still very good.
The action scenes were incredible. He’s really evolved, and is confident enough with his ability to shoot action scenes now. You’ll see what I mean when you watch it. I don’t want to spoil too much here.
His use of music was also very different to his past films. I don’t mean the actual music itself, but how it stops and starts.
QT didn’t really stick with formula here. Like DP, although it wasn’t like any other QT film, it still felt like a QT film.
EDIT: I think the second tune was the one that plays after The Bride sticks her sword in that one crazy 88 member, and then walks around with it still in lodged in his body. It’s like suspenseful sounding music, it’s the best way I can describe it. I’m too tired to even think properly
