They'll probably do Vol 2 as a bare-bones affair similar to the Vol 1 disc, then release Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair (what Quentin's title for both volumes will be when he shows it as one movie at Cannes) as a mammoth special edition.

TOTPD!

Plus did QT do the voice of Pai Mei? (sp)
If not who did he do (if any) as im sure he done some voice acting in Vol 2.


In the original script which I read before Volume one came out the pai mei scenes where purposely badly dubbed over like in the old shaw brothers films in the 70's. In the script it is read as...


* From here on end, whenever ENGLISH is spoken by The Bride,or every once in awhile by Pai Mei, it will be spoken in ENGLISH IN LIVE SYNCH SOUND. However, whenever MANDARIN is supposedly spoken, it comes out of their mouths as DUBBED ENGLISH like in a 70's Shaw Brothers Chop Socky Flick.


sorry for the double post...

The original script is a very interesting read, It gives you a perspective of how the movie would of panned out without the studio debacle.

Found this about Miramax's plans regarding the Kill Bill DVDs on
www.thedigitalbits.com

Finally this morning, I've saved the best (or worst) for last. The NY Times has a new story up on how the Hollywood studios are rushing to cash in on the DVD boom. Here's your happy, happy, joy, joy from the article... Miramax is reportedly preparing to release a half-dozen different DVD editions of
Kill Bill:

"This is the beauty of having two volumes," said Rick Sands, chief operating officer at Miramax. "Vol. 1 goes out, Vol. 2 goes out, then Vol. 1 Special Edition, Vol. 2 Special Edition, the two-pack, then the Tarantino collection as a boxed set out for Christmas. It's called multiple bites at the apple. And you multiply this internationally." Mr. Tarantino has also cut an alternate version of the movie for Japan.

I'm gonna ask the obvious right now: Can you believe the BALLS required to make a statement like that in public? To a reporter? For a story that people are going to READ?! Do you suppose Miramax planned to let fans of the film know about all this, so they could... oh, I don't know... maybe make informed decisions about which version they want to spend their hard-earned cash on? I can understand the need to put out multiple DVD versions of a film on occasion, but DAMN! A half-dozen different DVD editions, and Tarantino wants to release stand-alone Beneath the Crust-style discs of supplemental materials as well?! F#@K THAT.

Multiple bites at the apple, huh?

BITE THIS!

And to think the entertainment industry has the nerve to wonder why some people download this stuff. Greedy bastards. Doh!

I voted Pulp Fiction, one of my all-time favourite movies.

Of course, Pulp Fiction deserves to win, if only for the Futurama connection.

Knew that.
And I also knew that most DVD releases these days sux0r. ESPECIALLY Disney. I guess I could live with the previews that play before the menu pops up, the lack of commentary and the annoying tabletop games that look like they were trown together in five minutes if they didn't get their grubby hands all over Miyazaki. The biggest offense here is their love of 2 disc sets. Some movies, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, are great as 2 disc sets, sure. They have tons of extras. But anyone who's seen the DVD release of 'Kiki's Delivery Service' can tell you that most DVDs put out by Disney are a total rip. Kiki and 2 extras cost more than my Space Ghost Box Set. Something's WRONG there.
ON TOPIC: I bought my Kill Bills bootleg from Ebay, and in this case, I'm not guilty at all. Some companies do their best when they make DVDs.. like ADVision. I honor that by buying them. And Miramax makes me.. and I'm sure everyone else here.. Frown mightily.

I did vote for Pulp Fiction because it is true genius, the rest of his films are just very good.

Also does anybody know the song played in Vol 2 when Beatrix is lying in bed with her child.

The first, and only, Tarantino movie I've seen thus far is Kill Bill Vol. 1 and I have to say it was pretty decent. I liked the knife fight scene and all the anime and spagehti-western stuff. I enjoyed the stylized-yet-very-cheesy-in-an-old-school-slasher-way fight scenes for the most part but....


All-in-all pretty cool though. I know I wouldn't mind watching it over a couple more times.

I agree with the spoiler. I felt the same way about a scene in Underworld...

If you've only seen one Tarantino movie you should try some more. Pulp Fiction is the best one in my opinion - I agree with EvilLunch: rent it, or better yet, buy it!

Nothing beats Gwyneth Paltrow slow-mo walking in Tenenbaums!

That reminds me that I really have to watch Kill Bill.

I remember hearing that QT was working on a different film before he started on Kill Bill.  Not one of his previous movies, but one he was in the middle of writing or something like that.  If I'm not just being insane, does anybody have any iformation on this movie?

Let me put it this way. If you ever start feeling sentimental, go to Austin, Texas. When you get here, walk into a florist and buy a bunch of flowers. Then you take those flowers to Huntington cemetery on Fuller and Guadalupe, look for the headstone marked Paula Schultz, then lay them on the grave. Because you will be standing at the final resting place of Beatrix Kiddo.

Well DanMan he says in the extra section on the Kill Bill DVD he was writing a World War 2 film just before he went back to working on Kill Bill, he is meant to be writing it again now. It sounds like pretty cool stuff.

It just supports my theory that "Everything Comes Back to Anime". Watch Underworld and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust[which was made first]. Hmm... very similar ways of disposing of elegant vampires. [Everyone in the theatre laughed when it happened in Underworld and wept when in happened in Bloodlust. It goes to show that it isn't the content but the presentation..]

That movie is called Inglorious Bastards. It was supposed to be Tarantino's next project, but recently there's been talk of the Vega Brothers movie (Michael Madsen, John Travolta) and of a remake of Casino Royale with Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman.

I heard about that but I thought the James Bond folk (EON) were a little shakey about giving their character to a director who is known for "extreme violence" in a movie series normallly available to younger audiences.
Anyway I would love to see this and thanks for the heads up on the other two flicks.
Plius dont forget about his segment in the Sin City movie. QT seems to have his hands full!

My friend has Kill Bill Vol. 2 on pirate DVD copy, watched it at the weekend! I wont give anything away, but if you were looking forward to seeing Samuel L, prepare to be disapointed, for some crazy reason he has a very small part.

I got Kill Bill: Volume one on DVD yesterday and watched it last night, it was brilliant, not that I expected any less of a Quentin Tarantino film, I'm sure it won't be long before I watch it again. I thought it would be more gory from what I'd heard but it wasn't all that bad, sure a few people got a flesh wound or two but each one wasn't much gorier than the Black Knight scene in The Holy Grail, there were just a few more   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

Tarantino is brilliant??? I don't know, he is certainly gory enough, and funny too but I don't know if I can go that far. Just because he pushes boundaries of taste doesn't automatically make him brilliant to me. To each his own.

I've seen Pulp Fiction and it was good, not great. Kill Bill 1 too, but that one I find hard to judge,it is at least as good as PF though, maybe better. I rented this weekend and I need to see it again to be sure.  smile

Question: Didn't Tarantino direct From Dusk till Dawn? Or was that a project he shared with others? THAT I like!  big grin

Ive now seen all his films and im going to still go with my first choice Reservoir Dogs, followed closely by Kill Bill and then followed by Pulp Fiction.

Reservoir Dogs always struck me as the most interesting  due to its concepts. Pulp Fiction is IMO overrated i still absolutely love it but the praise surrounding it probably overwhelmed my perception of it.

FINALLY saw Kill Bill v1, and seriously, is there any part of this movie that doesn't rock? The fight scenes, the  hilarious/poignant dialogue, the 'special effects,' the cheesiness, the ultra-groovey soundtrack, and that very conspicous Wilhem scream...
it made me very happy.  smile

Does it top Pulp Ficiton as my fav Tarontino film? No... though they're very different beasts really, and I hate to try to compare them. I love them both.

I took a risk and bought Reservoir Dogs on DVD yesterday, as it was real cheap... 6.65! Anyway, I watched it today and really enjoyed it. I still prefer Pulp Fiction, but Reservoir Dogs has it's own certain charm. I find his films so gripping and intense, and in places hilarious (although more so on the later with Pulp Fiction, which might be partly why I prefer it...)

Kill Bill needs to have both versions of it seen for one to realize the masterpiece that it is...
