    Ok I was watching Pulp Fiction last night (yet another godly Quentin Tarantino movie) and Uma Thurman is also in that, if you didnt already know. In the one scene she tells John Travolta how she was in a pilot for a show and then described the show, and it is the plot for Kill Bill.......i thought that was just kinda cool

    Are you being serious?

    Do you have any idea how many meanings there are to the Lord of the Rings?

    To name one major one there is the connection between machinery and nature. Tolkien believed that man was becoming too concerned with material objects that led to killing one another. One of the major themes of the Lord of the Rings is the 'returning to simplicity or nature'.

    There are so many more I won't go into here. You picked a very poor example to relate to 'Kill Bill'. There is no comparison. Also the Matrix has many philosophical debates around it as well, check out the philosophical section of www.whatisthematrix.com and see for yourself. Another poor connection. Albeit that the Matrix was likely fueled mostly by its amazing special effects, it is not the whole point of the movie, as the violence was in 'Kill Bill'.

    Ok that is pretty cool, I admit. I haven't seen Pulp Fiction though. It still doesn't change my opinion of the movie, but it is interesting :)

    Mistake 1: Matrix is more philosophical than you can imagine, and i don't think i mentioned it.

    Mistake 2: I was talking about the Movie LOTR, not the book. Though the book is poor in literature terms(to me), it's much more complicated than the movie.

    Who made the poor connections?

    He didn't say the Matrix wasn't philosophical.

    And if a movie is based on a book it's obviously going to try to convey the same point as the book. Why else would they make the movie?Tolkien's work in the Hobbit and the 3 LOTR books is considered a modern day classic, it's heralded as a very high acheievement in today's litterature. So it isn't "poor in literature terms". If you had read the books you would notice the greatness of the writing and storyline.

    :lol:. "And LPFAN05 wins the World Series!"

    Anyways, lets try to get back on topic.

    I think it's the goreiness of the film which actually prompted security guards to monitor the entrance to Kill Bill. I've never had trouble sneaking into an "R" rated movie before but this time I was twarted before I could even try. Sounds like I'm going to need to pirate this one. :lol:

    LOL, but it would be the MPAA you'd want to notify, not the RIAA :p . Unless he's planning on stealing the soundtrack too... :p

    Okay, well, I don't know about everyone else, but I absolutely loved this movie.

    For the longest time I've waited for a movie like this. It's like a live version of an anime movie and it's pure genious. The over-exaduration with the blood is just lovely. Like I said--It has basically every aspect of an anime movie (which I am a fan of). There's basically no cheesy blood scenes in this movie, and the gore is anything japan animation would create for mature audiences.

    For the other point made about Matrix-like styles in this movie, that is a normal type of fighting style in martial art movies. Every old movie you see has the fighters flying, jumping at impossible heights/lengths and they can do basically the impossible.

    For anyone who loves anime, this is the greatest movie. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but yeah. I thought this movie was going to be dumb as hell as the way the trailer portrayed it, but it was nothing like I thought. There's an actual anime-like animation in the movie and everything you see in that animation is seen through out the entire movie.

    I'm sorry to anyone who begs to differ, but this is one of the most amazing and greatest movies I've seen for a long, long, long time. I really think I can guarentee if you like anime, you'll love this movie aside from the small adult moments in the movie.

    It really has parts where you wonder "holy crap, did that just happen?!"

    Hopefully the entire story is carried through because I really like it so far.

    Its another feeble attempt of his to pick at things I said in my posts. Probably about the MPAA/RIAA one a few posts up, in which case he was taking things too seriously because I was joking as well. Anyways it doesn't really matter.

    To clarify what I meant in my previous rant: I can deal with a movie with violence. I can deal with blood and gore. I can deal with dismemberment. I cannot deal with a movie lacking a point or purpose beyond what a simple two year old mind could develop as this 'revenge' story is. I cannot deal with a movie that is based on making people gawk at its sheer grotesque (sp?) nature. I would love to believe that I am missing something in this movie, that there are other levels of depth to it. If someone can show me them, I might change my opinion about it. But so far I have only met people who say "This movie is great!!!", and can't explain to me why other than it was 'cool' because of the violence.

    Well think of it this way. Majority of movies made about revenge have guns involved. Then the character goes and blows the crap out of everyone, and that's basically how it ends.

    Now would you like to see someone get pumped full of lead, or see some dicapitation done in an interesting way? :lol:.

    I think that even though a damnload of people were cut up in that movie, it was done in a fashionable sense. With the black and white, and shillouete (sp) scenes.

    Anyways. I think this revenge story is interesting because it's a female, for one. Majority of revenge stories is all about the guy, and in this movie, the girls kick some major ass :lol:.

    I don't know how or why I like this story so much. It might just be because it's just something I like animation wise or what, so I can't tell you for sure I know why this movie is great in my opinion. I just think this movie was made in a fashionable sense other than just... Main character wants revenge, main character kills a few people, main character hunts down boss, boss gets killed by main character.

    I think maybe it'll make more sense when the whole stroy is revealed. Somethings in the movie I didn't get. Like why that one lady has an eye patch on :mellow:. So I guess all I have left to see is, I guess we have to wait and see :D.

    Hmmm, after reading all of these reviews, I have decided that I really wanna see this movie. I kinda wanted to see it before, but even more so now. This seems to be one of those movie's that you either love or hate. No in between. I'm curious now... (not that I can afford to go and see it anyways)

    I saw the movie tonight.

    Storyline/Writing = Amazing.
    Excessive Gore = The only drawback.

    The only thing that kept this movie at an "R" rating (yes, there's higher ratings) is the anime and black and white scenes halfway through the movie. Even those were gory. The storyline and writing is, as I said, great. There's a huge cliffhanger at the end that leaves you desperately wanting Vol 2.

    I must admit that you can get little sick to your stomach within the first 30 mins of the movie because of all the gore, but you get used to it. I don't think 100 gallons of blood spewing out of a severed arm was necessary. But either way, very good movie. 9.3/10

    I totally agree.



    It was rated 15+ here, I guess. But nobody asks you about your age. You can go to 18+ movie and it doesn't matter how old are you. The ratings here means just something like "Children SHOULD not see this or that..." but nobody cares. There were some children like 6 or 7 years old in the theatre yesterday to see Kill Bill. They'll probably have nightmares cause of that or something... :p
