    My Advice: Rent it to see it at least once.

    Have you ever wondered about how there got to be so many human beings on such a tiny little planet? Well, wonder no more! This documentary by an alien anthropologist (Pierce), takes a look at just what makes these simple creatures tick, and more importantly, what makes them tick so often. He follows one human female, known among other of her species as Jenny (Electra), and one human male, also known as Billy (Astin) and follows their relationship from courting to sexual intercourse to marriage to the birth of their resulting offspring. As you will see, there is much more to a human relationship than meets the ocular nerve endings.

    Kill Bill, Vol. 1 DVD

    Film:
    DVD:

    Written & Directed by Quentin Tarantino

    Rating: R

    Anamorphic: Yes.
    My Advice: If you can, hold out for the Uber Mongo edition.

    The Bride (Thurman) has had a bit of a rough go. See, she used to be in the employ/cadre of Bill (Carradine), who is one of the meanest sons of bitches on the planet. As a member of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, The Bride, aka Black Mamba, killed (and killed well) for shitloads of money. However, apparently she decided to get the hell out of Dodge, and pissed off her former compadres in the process. They found her at the wedding chapel and then slaughtered her and her fellow wedding party types. Or at least, they thought they had.

    Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) – Movie Review

    Kill Bill, Vol. 1 movie poster

    Written & Directed by Quentin Tarantino
    Starring Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah, Sonny Chiba

    My Advice: Don’t Miss It.

    She has no name, she’s just referred to as The Bride (Thurman). She was left for dead, along with the other corpses which made up her wedding party, by her former lover and (apparently) employer, Bill (David Carradine). We’re talking beat the shit out of and shot in the head left for dead. Now, four years later, she’s come out of her coma with a steel plate in her head…and without the baby she was carrying. She very quickly develops a complete and utter mad-on for Bill and her former cohorts, and gets on the trail of killing them. Every last one of them.

    I don’t know what I find most disturbing about this film. Is it the extremely harsh, unforgivingly brutal yet amazingly gorgeous violence, all of it orchestrated like some mad ballet? Or is the fact that Tarantino‘s filmmaking prowess has been honed like one of Sonny Chiba’s blades and that his homage to chop socky goodness is flawless? Because it is–it’s flawless. Sure, you can say what you want about how it’s a shallow orgy of death and dismemberment–go ahead, you know, because in one sense, it is. But you can’t see Thurman’s reaction to waking up–alone–and not feel that something else is going on here. The pairing of the opening credits music with what you just witnessed in the prologue–this is not a shallow film. Visceral, demanding and unforgiving, yes–but shallow, hell no.
