Out of the Blue

Kill Bill: Vol. 1 rocked... and this is coming from someone who is not familiar enough with most of the martial arts movies to which it pays homage. Sure enough, a consult with my buddy Abraxas, a martial arts movie maven, shows that the appeal for fans of the genre is even more extreme. Great stuff... basically like Fox Force Five without any vaudeville jokes.

"and 10 minutes ripping off other movies."

There is a difference between ripping off and paying homage. The whole premise of Kill Bill is built off of paying homage to the various movies, genres, ect that Quintin grew up watching. With this comes all the "cartoon violence" as it applies to the particular genre.

Also: If you go to this movie expecting Reservoir Dogs 2: Mr. Pink's Kungfu Revenge, you will be disappointed. So don't.
