Pulp Antigenre

After reading all of the rave reviews, I decided to go see Kill Bill with my Father the other night. Absolutely amazing. Quentin has managed to accurately capture the feeling of, and make fun of, Japanese Anime and fight genres at the same time! Some of the scenes were dead on accurate to the culture and sent chills down my spine and then, two seconds later, gallons of fake blood were gushing in absolutely fake tongue-in-cheek Itchy and Scratchy fashion!

Although Pulp Fiction was right on the edge of being a dark comedy, Kill Bill dives directly into the comedic waters because the blood and gore is so far over the edge and in your face that it’s actually amusing. No attempts have been made to pretend that Kill Bill is a serious movie…it’s simply over the top Japanese Anime acted out with humans instead of animation, complete with Matrixesque wire work and Bullet Time.

  1. I’m glad you liked it too. I’ve actually read some bad reviews recently where the major complaint is the gushing blood.

    Like you, I thought this aspect of the movie was funny – not so much laugh out loud funny, but more like the “Oops, there goes another head” kind of funny. 🙂

  2. I thought the story was great which made it a great movie. So, although you said Terentino didn’t even pretend to make a real movie, that is exactly what he did.
