Yeah I kind of agree- the males (and to an extent females) are not so much full blooded characters as people who spout out hip dialouge.

This gonna be slightly off topic but…
Its weird, but The Bride is one of those characters where I felt as if I KNEW what she was feeling. Between QT’s writing and Thurman’s performance, I was right there with The Bride (cept when she was fighting of course )
Example. When she first drags herself into the Pussy Wagon, and has trouble closing the door- I really felt her frustration and helplessness. When she prepares for the final face off against O Ren- I feel almost as exhausted as she probably does. In Volume 2, when she trapped underground- man that creeped me right out. And finally in the bathroom at the end, where shes crying/laughing- I’m right there with her. It’s rare in films that I’ve had such identification with a character- even a sword welding semi ninja like the Bride!
Sorry, random thought spouting over…
