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.

The Truth, the name of the song is
Song To The Siren

The song is originally by Tim Buckley.
How ever, many people have done versions from it, not limited to but including the chemical brothers.

This however is not the original version, your best bet is to search for that song on kazaa or something, and try any version by a female sounding name, maybe you can find it that way. But, that is the name for sure!

*edit*
Upon looking at the Sound Track my self, it was listed! You just did not know the name.
From sound track the name of the artist is
Barraka

Second Edit
I wanted to hear the full song too as well, thanks to you! but never could find it as Barraka, as the SND track listed. But I did find it under
Group:This Mortal Coil
Album: It'll End In Tears
Proper Song Title: Song to the Siren (with Lisa Gerrard)
It sure would be lame to have a soung on a sound track, and not have it credited right.

Is it like realistic gore or is it like comical gore?

*** TALKING ABOUT THE MOVIE ... don't read if you don't want to know... ***

It was almost all comical (i.e., so over-the-top that you can't help but laugh). Well, that's how I saw it, anyway, and I'd cite specific points in the movie, but I don't want to give anything away to people who are reading this paragraph even though they don't want to spoil the movie for themselves.

Gore by itself shouldn't really be disturbing... it's how the director presents it. Take the ear scene in Reservior Dogs, for instance, and compare it with the large fight scene in Kill Bill. World of difference.

Couple of references:

Pulp Fiction (obviously)
Bruce Lee movies esp Game of Death and Chinese Connection - some of these titles may be off, they're translated/named differently sometimes.
Monty Python's "The Holy Grail" (I think, at least. It's obvious when you see it)
Star Trek 6 - The Final Frontier (You wouldn't believe it, but it's there. Really obvious)
Those are a few that I can instantly name - but the whole movie is a collage of ideas. Really well done.

A great return to form after "Jackie Brown", which was good but far from great. Look for the subtle (and not-so-subtle) details.

It's WAY TOO BLOODY. I mean, I liked pulp fiction and Jackie Brown, both were graphic. It was well made, but I just couldn't stand to see that much death and suffering graphically portrayed over and over again for the last hour of the movie (pretty much solid)

I'm too disgusted to like it, but it was well made. I'll give it that. The "boss fight" at the end was a little anti-climactic, though. just more gore.

Don't worry about references. It's off the wall from anything else out there enough that his other films won't help you either :0

The movie comes from an idea cooked up by Quentin & Uma while making Pulp Fiction, referred to as "The Bride" in the end credits. Quentin gave her a partial script for her birthday and then many years later got around to it when he got stuck trying to finish his WWII script "The Inglorious Bastards".

Tarantino loves Sonny Chiba, who did a bunch of movies under "The Streetfighter" series, with the first being the best by far. It has some gruesome scenes, at one point Sonny rips off a guys nuts and holds them up to the camera. They have an original movie trailer on the tape I saw, which called Chiba "6 foot 6 of half-breed fury!!" because Chiba is supposed to be a chinese/japanese mix. It kicks ass. Ive seen tons of other Sonny Chiba films too, but most are just okay - with a few standout masterpeices.

Shaw brothers did COUNTLESS kung-fu films in the 70's, along with many "Wu-Tang" movies, from which the rappers took their name... as well as a good many "tai-chi" films. I believe they also did "The 36 chambers of Shao-Lin" which starred Gordon Lui and is a classic film, reccomended for anyone who likes martial arts.

Unfortunately Tarantino seems to borrow little from more modern Hong-Kong masters like Tsui Hark and Jet-Li and the numerous chinese myth stories involving the cult heroes like Fong Sai Yuk and Wong Fei Hong. So far, Ive seen him use very little of the "wire flying" and freaky magic which typifies modern hong-kong kung-fu films.

Soo ... what movies should you watch to get some of the references? Still got a week to go until the movie airs here in Germany, so I might be able to see one or two of them before I go and watch Kill Bill.

Edit: Oh and please, PLEASE go light on spoilers.

A truely samurai-cowboy, grindhouse, duckpress flick. I liked Go-Go. "Do you want to screw me?" Heh...
Looking forward to Michael Madsen and David Carradine in part 2. It was cool to see Sonny Chiba as well. I've always loved his stuff.

Actually if you watch the credits at the end I think said it was based on a book called The Bride.

Great movie. Can't wait for part 2.
