my friends know (and soon you will too) that i'm not a big fan of the "one movie in two parts" thing QT employs here (also the Wachowski defense to the Matrix sequels). while i understand the desire to create a story larger than the acceptable confines for a standard film's length, i just think there are too many outlets available modern filmmakers (cable miniseries, for example). i think that assuming your movie's performance will justify a sequel can backfire (Golden Compass, anyone?), and ending a movie without satisfying the audience is a risk i wouldn't recommend in the Twitter age. people don't wanna waste their hard-earned (and increasingly rare) entertainment budget and not get a complete story for it.
so anyways, TNT smartly ran both Kill Bill volumes back to back ("with limited commercial interruption"), because they have more respect for me than mr. Tarantino did! The Kill Bill joints are CLASSIC, weaving together Tarantino's much-celebrated dialogue and a nice variety of action/battle sequences. The movies marked the return of the action scene from the CGI wonderland of a million Matrix wannabes, instantly transforming Uma Thurman (via her role as Beatrix Kiddo aka The Bride) into a first-rate onscreen bad ass. Kill Bill is the definition of the revenge story. as much as i object to it, the two-movie format gives Tarantino room to make sure that we really get a chance to become invested in the Bride's blood-soaked quest for vengeance at the end of her hanzo sword's blade. the lag-time between the release of volume 1 and 2 ultimately meant that Tarantino could improve the second film by it's release (note the lack of spraying wounds in part two...), and i applaud that receptiveness. the score and soundtrack for the movie (supplied by the Rza) is perfect, and QT gets good performances from all the actors. if you're among those who hasn't seen Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2, you should really consider giving them a shot if you like a good revenge story.
p.s. here's the Anime Sequence from Volume 1, just so you know i care!
