Are you tempted to watch it though?..is there a reason you started this topic?
I mean, I knew going into Volume 2 that Volume 1 was the greatest thing ever and there was no way it would be topped. And it wasn’t topped. But after a few viewings I find it to be just as good a movie, but in an entirely different way. It’s basically a different movie, but still part of the same story. Don’t have any expectations and don’t compare it to the first half, and you’ll enjoy it.
When I first watched Volume 1, I was so disappointed afterward. It didn’t even come close to any of the greatness of Pulp Fiction. My face just dropped straight after watching Volume 1 and I started to pick out the positive things from it to make myself feel better about it (I couldn’t believe QT let me down, tut) Anyway, now I FUCKIN LOVE this film to fuckin bits. It’s genius. However, no matter how much I love it, I will always know that it will never ever top Pulp Fiction because of that feeling I got after watching it. I judge films after watching them twice (on most occasions only once), I watched Volume 1 twice and it didn’t come close to Pulp. But now I can’t stop watching it. Same thing happened to me about Volume 2, after watching it I was so disappointed, never mind Pulp, it didn’t even touch Volume 2. Now though, I have seen it many times and just love the film. Heck, I can’t stop watching “Kill Bill”, it’s sheer brilliance, but again is not the genius that is Pulp Fiction.
So I use the ‘feeling’ i get after watching a film once (maybe twice) to judge how good it actually is. Therefore, even though I can’t stop loving KB and I watch it like 10 times more than Pulp, I can’t say it’s better than Pulp, because I didn’t like it much upon first viewings.
I don’t know if this post has anything to do with the topic, I just wanted to get this out of me. Thanx for listening!
