Kill-bill is very simply a nod to grindhouse flicks. It's not some cinematic masterpiece, nor is Quentin pretending it is. It's just a dolled up samruai gore flick.
Take it at face value and enjoy it for what it is. The only pretentions that it has are what people assign to it, nothing more.
From the man himself...
Q: How would you describe Kill Bill to people?
Quentin: Kind of depends who I’m talking to, you know. If I was working at a video store and somebody goes in the new release section and brings up Kill Bill to me and goes, “What’s this? Is it any good?” I’d go, “Shit, it’s great. It’s the bomb.” “Well, what’s it about?” “Well, it depends.” If I’m talking to somebody I know and I think they’re very cinema savvy and everything like that, then I’d say, “It’s 30 years of grindhouse movies put into a duck press. It’s a revenge film that’s genre hopping and it’s a lot of fun.” I’d make some film references: kung fu, Japanese samurai, spaghetti western. “You’ll love it.” But if it’s just a mom and pop coming in and they don’t necessarily have to be the most cinema savvy people in the world, if they’re going to do me the favor of asking my opinion about a film, then I wouldn’t go off in some airy-fairy way like that. I’d just say, “It’s a really cool revenge movie. You know, somebody’s been done wrong and they go hunting down the bad guys. It’s that, but that to its ultimate extreme.” Or, but also, like say a 13-year-old girl came in, and held up the box, “Is this any good?” “Yeah, baby. You’re gonna love it! It is girl power to the ultimate degree. You take it home and watch this and when you come back I’m gonna sell you an Uma Thurman poster to put up on your wall.”
Anyway, enough cinematic criticism, is the GAME going to suck or not? I say it'll be sponsored by Hoover.
