What can I say, I love Kill Bill.   ;D

I especially like all the songs by Ennio Morricone.  It's a shame they left "Death Rides A Horse" by Ennio Morricone (the song playing when the Brides slices Sophie's arm) off the first soundtrack.

I"m tellin' you man - she didn't keep mementos.  They were secondary and of no importance.

The only thing she took with her other than her own sword for any sentimental reason would be her daughter.

Other than that anything she took along (like the pussywagon) was for functional use only.  Her motives weren't possession-based, not even a little bit.

I realize that the Bride wasn't possession-oriented, but you have to put a Samurai sword in its proper context.  The Samurai regarded their swords as the "soul" of their warriorship.  The Samurai held their swords in the highest regard, and even named them.  Their swords were spiritual.  So considering that a Hanzo sword was the best type of sword in the world and not just given to anyone, it's interesting to flirt with the idea that, at the very least, the Bride kept Bill's Hanzo sword.  Maybe I'm just crazy.

I watched it last weekend & enjoyed it a lot.  The story was very original & the casting was perfect.  Jim Carrey (Joel) & gorgeous Kate Winslet (Clementine) were convincing in their roles & their relationship seemed believable (good chemistry).  The only negative part about the movie was Frodo.  Anyway, it's fun to ponder the consequences of erasing a person, experience, or memory (pleasant/unpleasant) from the "hard drive" that is the human mind.  If the possibility to escape the past became a reality, would you take the plunge & remove a few unwanted memories or "mistakes?"

Kill Bill Volume 2 was incredible. At first, I thought it wouldn't match up to the first, but ultimately, I liked it much better than Volume 1.  Volume 2 was more character-driven, which was great.  We finally got an in-depth look at Bill's character and a look at Beatrice's background (especially her martial arts training with Pai Mei).  I thought that the fight scene between Elle and Beatrice was awesome & it met my expectations.  I'm curious on whether or not the Bride kept Budd's Hanzo sword or Bill's Hanzo sword, to keep as trophies or keepsakes.

Thanks to Bush, 693 of our soldiers have lost their lives in Iraq &  3,269 US soldiers have been seriously wounded.  The White House confirmed today that as early as November 21, 2001, Bush asked Rummsfeld to draft a battle plan for Iraq.  Bush was eager to invade Iraq from day one.  He has little regard for human life.  I'm voting for regime change.  My vote is going to Kerry.

For fellow children of the 80's, the definitive Cold War nuke TV movie finally has a DVD release, according to DavisDVD.com:

Quote
MGM Home Entertainment will at long last release the made-for-TV event The Day After onto DVD on May 18th. This controversial and truly frightening 1983 telefilm follows the events leading up to and following a devastating nuclear attack on the United States by the Soviet Union. The disc is expected to arrive with a 1.78:1 anamorphic transfer of the 126-minute cut, Dolby Digital 2.0 audio and a newly created behind-the-scenes featurette. Not included on this disc, however, is the terrific audio commentary with director Nicholas Meyer that appeared on the Image Entertainment special edition laserdisc. Retail is $27.98.

Gave me the willies.  :)

Yeah, it gave me the willies, too.

I'm definitely going to add it to my collection (come May).

No, Cory, I just find it odd that a guy who. . .

  • calls himself "Cinemaddiction"

Owns cinematicrap like 2Fast2Furious
  • Can't wait to buy The Cat in the Hat

You're right.  I have seen the light.

Cat in the Hat got dicked-over for the Oscars

I'm afraid our sensitive bounty-hunter-lovin' friend, Cory "Siskel" H., has changed his mind yet again.....

He looks so dejected, and cumbersome in public, like someone ran over his wife and his dog in the same day.

I've never heard anyone use the word cumbersome to describe the way someone looked.

A dunker.  I usually pour 5-packets worth of ketchup in a pile off to the side for my fries.

Watto's Junk Yard / Weird smells/scents that you enjoy
« on: March 7, 2004, 02:57 AM »
Are there any strange scents, smells, or odors that you are oddly attracted to?  I like the way chalk dust smells & the scent of a skunk.
