Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)


Wiggle your big toe.
So basically: After four years in a coma, "The Bride", aka Black Mamba, wakes up to realize she has lost her unborn child and seeks revenge on the people who did this to her. The culprits? The members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad: Vernita Green (Copperhead) who is now a mother and wife, O-Ren Ishii (Cottonmouth) who is the head of an underground organization in Tokyo, Budd (Sidewinder) who lives in a trailer and works a dead-end job, Elle (California Mountain Kingsnake) who despises and respects "The Bride", and Bill, the one responsible for it all.

Yey! Quinten Tarantino! It should be mentioned that I wrote this review before I wrote Vol. 2's, as I had only seen it once and I thought it would be a bit weird seeing Vol. 2 without rewatching Vol. 1 first. Anyway, this movie is epic. I can't even describe it. Obvi not everyone will like it, Tarantino is just one of those directors, but if you haven't seen anything by him, watch this film! If you don't like him, well, that's your prerogative, but honestly, I don't understand it. All of his movies are awesome to the extreme. My only problem with this film is the bleeping out of "The Bride"'s name. I wish they had just failed to mention it altogether. It just seemed too forced the way they did it.

This defs deserves to be on the list along with all of Tarantino's films (I think only Grindhouse isn't, and it was at one point).

Ziggi seal of approval!


  1. I'm not a big Tarantino fan, like I get what he does, and he has a foot partialism and he loves the seventies...Buuuut....Sometimes it just annoys me, like scene kids annoy me. I'm like "You seriously spent four hours this morning that you could have spent sleeping to look like that, just so people will pay attention to you so you can complain about people paying attention to you." AND IT MAKES ME ANGRY!

    Buy also like I said, I get why he does it, he's an artist and crap and bleh bleh bleh and though I don't worship him he has made some good movies. This is one of them. Did you know that for that scene where she's fighting like everyone ever, Hollywood was out of fake blood. Terinto, bought all of the blood, there was no more in all of Hollywood. Which is hilarious. Good plot, neat characters, even side ones! Like that little Asian girl...Go Go Yubari or something? I dunno. But she made me happy in the pants.

    Pretty good Tarantino, even if all the blood you bought in Hollywood was kinda pink and I'm next to positive you used a sprinkler for one of the effects...Which...Yep. There goes Terinto...Being...Himself....

  2. I *love* Go Go <3<3<3<3 [Yes, like that]

    Lulz, no more blood!! I think I might have known that!

    Yey you like this one

  3. Apparently half the time I spell it correctly and the other half is name is Terinto...Which...Completely neglects many of the syllables in his name...
