    Well Reviewers so far (okay, so it was Ebert and Roeper) said it was a very good film, with a ton of blood, but they liked it very much.

    You can read about much of it from:
    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/KillBillVol1-1126182/preview.php
    http://movies.go.com/movies/K/killbill_2001/

    Apparently the movie was almost breaching on NC17 rating-ness (yeah, damn, how much blood could dozens of minions have? ;))

    They said it had many 'geek-references' so I was wondering what people have heard about it and what these references were!

    The Making of the Movie can be seen here:

    Have fun!

    It's supposed to be pretty good. I will probably see it, but I can wait. I'm going into it with pretty low expectations, despite the critics loving it, but I'm hoping it's better than I think it'll be.

    Am I the only one that actually kinda liked Jackie Brown?

    Yeah, actually I fell asleep the first time I saw it. :eek: But in my defense I was really tired. I watched it again and thought it was pretty good. Just because QT does a lot of actiony stuff, doesn't mean he can't write good dialogue. I LOVE the way his characters talk and interact with one another. He's a very talented screenwriter, even if he does let himself get bogged down by style, at least he doesn't lose the substance.

    And yes, how can you not like Pam Grier?

    I really hope it is good, only problem if its rated R (Well yeah, its gonna be rated R) is I have no friends who can take me and my parents have said no already...

    More stupid fake matrix fight scenes. It looks horrible.

    And if this had been made before the matrix you could have said that the matrix was a rip off of this.

    But I'm glad someone found something bad about it.

    Though I didn't see too many people with Swords in the Matrix...

    Or that much blood...

    Or a knife fight...

    :rolleyes:

    I did...... in the second one.

    But that is unimportant. I don't think this looks like a matrix rip off at all.

    I am looking forward to seeing it, I'll probably see it next weekend.

    It'sd about time. I'm still holding judgment until I see it. I DID enjoy Jackie Brown, but I thought it was far from Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.

    So far reviewers like the movie, the worst people have said about it is that it could have been 1 movie instead of 2...

    MacMan with the blow by blow. :p

    "Another Great Tarantino Film" implies that there have already been great Tarantino films, an assertion that I strenuously disagree with.

    edit: (dons flame retardant suit and prepares for the barrage.)

    Ebert and Roper said they needed a break from all the violence. That being said, I'm seeing it...if I can find a buddy to go with me. My wife's not into all that violence. She won't even watch Sopranos.

    Yeah thats what they said.

    I suppose some people didn't agree with Tarantino's choice to split up the movie (along with the test audience).

    Ah well, I'm still looking for someone who knows someone who is 18 and who is going... meh!

    Wrong Bill and Uma Thurman as Ninja chick) I think NOT!

    Sorry the movie concept is the most brainless in ages. I mean Tarantino is known for BS movies but still.
    Cheers,

    Its your standard *plot* people are killed, the alive person want the perpetrators dead.

    But what Tarantino does it take this idea and mixes it with different styles, ways of shooting, fighting styles.

    Its unique as with his other films.

    The plot is oversimplified, sure but your not going to see LOTR, your going to see a fight, a big fight.

    Boo,

    I'm looking forward to it, I loved Pulp Fiction and this looks like an enjoyable movie.

    Besides, it has Uma Thurman so it can't be all bad ;)

    I could care less what others think... I watched Pulp Fiction, and didn't think the action was well done, didn't like or identify with the characters, and didn't see much of a plot at all.

    Bottom line with any movie: do you enjoy watching it? I simply did not enjoy Pulp Fiction, either while seeing it, or afterwards.

    on the other hand, the reviewers didn't totally destroy the one-billionth reincarnation of Freaky Friday, calling it a "fun, family film" instead of a "total piece of creativity-devoid dribble that speaks volumes about the spirit of mass-consumption, generic distribution, and general mindlessness of our forsaken society."

    So, I don't think they have much credibility.

    (note: I never saw the "new" version of Freaky Friday, and I don't plan to dammit!"

    Not to get off topic but I think that since they were in the Matrix and knew it, couldn't they have come up with some ingenious/out-of-this-world type weapons? Like in that movie "The Legend of Zu"! Loved that freakin movie.

    Oh yeah, and nothing beats a good sword fight.

    Except...

    Matrix used tons of CGI.

    This movie uses none and owes more to Hong Kong action flicks than to the Matrix. Where do you think the Matrix got the look of its fight scenes?

    Actually, Tarantino didn't want to split it up but the studio felt it was better to split it up. The film would have been around 3 hours and 20 minutes uncut, they felt that people couldn't sit that long through it.

    Maybe that says something about the movie.
