Actually I just read the whole thing and noticed there’s a footnote in the bottom of the page saying
ROTK wasn’t screened in time for our Top 20. Here’s what they had to say on Kill Bill:
And, lo, Quentin did wander off into the wilderness for six years…And then returned with a killer. Of course,some tabloids squealed at the excessive blood-splashing (the Daily Mail even had the lack of imagination to link it to a rash of gun crime - this when it was released within weeks of Bad Boys 2). And some fans bemoaned the stripped-down, action-heavy/dialogue-lite stylings, as if every QT offering from here to eternity should be a Pulp Fiction Xerox.
But, even though it’s only technically half a movie, Kill Bill: Volume 1 undeniably deserves its ranking. As an exercise in style, it’s unparalleled, from the impactful anime interlude, to the sly, referential soundtrack, to Uma’s iconic Game of Death togs. As an action movie, meanwhile, its firm coreography and trad techniques manage to make the multi-million-dollar-wolfing- likes of the Matrix Revolutions look as compelling as a messy, boozy pub punch-up.
Derivative? Yes. Self-indulgent? Oh, definitely. But Tarantino snorts, smokes and mainlines cinema. His regurgitation tastes better than anything a Michael Bay or Jan De Bont could ever cook up. Volme 2 now - and quick.
Also, they even proclaimed Uma Thurman as woman of the year.
