Well I finally got round to watching this, and I can't say I was overly impressed. Not to say it was a bad film, but what the smeg was it all about? I get the obvious stuff about her after revenge etc but why did they try and kill her in the first place?

I'd heard lots about the fight scenes, but again, wasn't that impressed. The big one in the restaurant was just lots of limbs and blades swinging round with blood splattering all over the place. It wasn't like they were amazingly choreographed like a Jackie Chan sequence or something. Add to that a script which seemed rather basic to me and all in all non too impressive :?

Also, am I the only person that finds Uma Thurman a bit ugly? Her eyes are far to far apart for a start :shock:

I dled and saw kill bill Vol 1 and 2 in a row, and I have to say: I actually liked it. Giveth the Rest scene was overkill and too gross. But Vol2 was slightly dissapointing. I dont find Uma Thruman ugly, she's ok. Not the best but ok!. :)

i got it on DVD, i like it, haven't seen Vol. 2 yet but that i'm guessing will explain why she was attacked etc.

I dunno, this is Tarantino we're talking about... I don't think he's that much into actual story lines, he just likes to splash lots of blood etc. Never been too big a fan of his :?

well. I have to disagree. I Love Tarantino films such as Reservoir Dogs, Pulp fiction and Jackie Brown to name a Few. Its not about the actors or the story. Its about the way its directed and the script they use. Its just soo Smooooothe! 8-)

Also there was that rooms thing, Four Rooms or something?

to my recollection he didn't direct dusk 2 dawn, only starred in it, maybe co-scripted it, can't remember, but it was Robert Rodriguez who directed.

still a damn good film tho, and anyone who argues otherwise is just plain lying or hasn't seen it.

they are the only others he's done.

i love pulp fiction, got it on DVD. a lot different to Kill Bill in terms of blood and there is more of a story line to it.

Tarantino has only written 4 screen plays afaik. may have co-worked on others.

I think he co-wrote fdtd
The trailer to volume 1 states... 'The 4th Film From Quentin Tarantino'
Tarantino was one of 4 directors on 4 rooms which is why it's not counted as a sole QT film.

Rodrigues did the first half of FDTD (the good and normal half) and Tarantino did the second half (the bit where it just goes crazy and you try and figure out what the smeg is going on).

Now Rodregues I like, Desperado is a top film :thumbs:

Btw, welcome to the forums Ally :welcome:
