All right. Everyone pretty much knows that I really didn't like Kill Bill Vol. 1 very much. I wanted to...but it was just too bloody for me.

Well, the good news is that Kill Bill Vol. 2 is a lot better than the first one. As in Vol. 1, my favourite scenes have to do with The Bride and a master. In Vol. 1, it was Sonny Chiba as Hattori Honzo; in Vol. 2 it is the wonderful Gordon Liu as Pai Mei. This section happily evokes movies like Return to the 36th Chamber, and I love Gordon Liu when he's in a comedic role. There's also a conversation with a female assasin over a pregnancy test that is hysterical...

But again, overall...eh. David Carradine talks too slowly, the burial scene was painful to watch...and don't get me started on the eye. Ew.

That being said, I went into the second half of the Kill Bill saga with extreme misgivings and trepidation. I was pretty convinced I was going to hate it. And I didn't. I was wrong. There were bits I actually enjoyed, and bits I wouldn't mind seeing again.

I think that says a lot about this movie...it changed my mind.

YAY! I had a feeling you would like this one more. It pays homage to all the old kung fu movies from China and Japan and stuff, which is incredibly neat. It makes me happy that you at least gave it a shot, though, since you did not seem too keen on the idea of paying to see it.

p.s. youve seen a ton of movies this week it seems, what is your count compared to last year at this time now?

I think I've seen over 30 already this year...I'll have to check when I get home tonight and see how that compares to last year at this time...

And yeh, I wasn't keen at all...but I figured, what the heck. I saw Passion of the Christ, I guess I can see this...
