There were two reasons why I decided to watch this movie again. First, I've always liked Kill Bill. Second, after being extremely disappointed by Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever http://mrfilmreviewer.blogspot.com/2012/07/ballistic-ecks-vs-sever.html I thought it would be good to watch another Lucy Liu movie. To expound in the first reason, I remember watching it the first time, watching the first few minute and thinking it was really good, but pretty ordinary. Then as the film progressed, I just kept being impressed by it. It was really a cool movie, and as a kid, I was truly fascinated by it. After watching it, I wanted to watch it again, and I did after some time. It was that good that I just wanted to watch it over and over again.
Watching it again, as a more mature person, hopefully, I liked it even more. Maybe I'm more able to recognize the techniques, the style, the artistry of it that I have an even greater appreciation of the movie. Also, I found it amusing that I also recognized the Tarantino film making style. It had similarities to Pulp Fiction, where the movie did not narrate the story in a chronological order. It was one of my favorite things about Pulp Fiction, and I also enjoyed that aspect of Kill Bill. I also liked how different styles and executions were present in the movie. I particularly liked the one with the animation since it was like a real Japanese anime.
What is with Tarantino and extremely violent, gory movies? But you know what? Don't answer that. I don't want to spoil myself. All I know is that Tarantino has an artistic vision always. His movies, although some are violent, are always tasteful. At least that's how I see it. I really enjoyed the fight sequences of the movie. It was like a Chinese Kung Fu movie plus a Japanese Samurai movie plus a little bit of the Western gun shooting. It was just awesome to see all these things be combined in a 90 minute movie.
This movie again showcased the genius that Quentin Tarantino is. The movie demanded attention because it was capable enough to impress and hold the attention. It was action-filled, had a very good story, and a brilliant director. This movie is the perfect example of thinking outside the box and creating magic.
