well i guess i’m lucky enough to have the original DVD9 version of this…
well what is there to say here? this is the most complete/perfect version of kill bill we currently have and is a great watch. it is obvious why there are many “abridged” attempts with KB, but i for one enjoy seeing this in all of its repetitive, egotistical entirety.
Totally fucking EPIC! Thank you so much for this. I loved the first 2 films separately, but putting them together and adding the additional footage makes them better still. On a bizarre note, I remember being a bit taken aback by the lack of action in Volume 2, but it somehow doesn’t bother me in this version. Although, unfortunately, this cut does make it clear how inferior Tarentino’s shooting of hand-to-hand kung fu is to his shooting of samurai sword fights. Especially Bill’s fight. It feels both lacking, and out of place, and I understand completely why it ended up on the cutting room floor. I imagine that the people who commented on the WBA really being Quentin’s intention to completely re-edit the film are correct, because as great as this is, I think it could be better still. Nonetheless, 5 stars all the way. And again, thank you.
Damn, I forgot to comment on the massacre scene being in color. Honestly, I’m surprised at how bloody it wasn’t. I really expected everything to be painted red by the end. While I still appreciate how cool it was that it was decolorized in the original release, I have to say that the colored version is superior since it doesn’t snap you back out of the scene. Therefore, I must thank you again for allowing me to see it in all it’s glory.
