I first saw it when I was a teenager and having grown up in a home that didn’t allow many movies it was a GAME CHANGER. I still have a crush on Uma Thurman tbh. But it was one of the first times too I had seen an adult film and action film that I walked away from being utterly spellbound by the artistry of it all. As time has gone on and I’ve seen other things I appreciate it more and more for the way it blends genres and influences, not to mention the way it culls music from all over the place. And that’s to say nothing of the production design and camera work, which are STUNNING.

I saw the end of the first one and most of the second one when I was in middle school, and completely did not understand it. Bought both Blu-rays some years back, re-watched and loved it. It's brilliantly done. Uma Therman was great at [ redacted ], too!

I agree, it's absolutely stunning and a huge part of it is Uma Thurman. She's so gorgeous first of all, and she plays the role so convincingly, I can't see anyone else do it. (Perhaps when I get my suit and katana, miss beatrix kiddo might have some competition wendy1

And the attention to detail, and artistic choices , I mean the opening scene from Vol.2 when she's driving and she gives a recap monologue, it's clear that she's not actually on the road but in a studio with the lighting, wind blowing in her face and the screen in the back, we as the audience know it, it's exaggerated on purpose, it's such a campy shot. I absolutely love it!

same I had seen it before, but this was the first time i really watched it and it's absolutely amazing, each scene just draws you in. It's like reading a book with your eyes.

I loved the first one, as well. I wish Tarantino had done more beyond the two films. Fuck. Even expand upon O-Ren's origin in the animation-style from the first film.

I don’t know I think of them as very distinct halves. I love that they’re so different. Impossible to choose between them. Vol. 1 is so intense it’s almost traumatizing to watch but Vol. 2 is a MASTERPIECE in subtlety. The training sequences and her being buried are fucking insane. My favorite shot out of both films though is queen Uma and her daughter smiling in the car driving away, enemies fucking VANQUISHED.

yeah they are different but it is apparent that they belong to one single movie/project cuz you must watch both of them. Honestly, the O'ren final chapter of vol.1 is hard to top, but vol. 2 got insane parts too like you mentioned. Also iconic in vol. 2 is the fight between Uma and Elle Driver...

not to mention that Elle's nurse whispering it is one of my life's soundtracks mess1

Yeah the Elle fight is the most brutal of both films I think. It’s crazy how he made it such a claustrophobic scene as opposed to the O’ren/88 battle sequences that all require these cavernous spaces that the fight migrated around.

One of my all-time favorite films and an iconic staple in cinematic history. Not only that, but the soundtrack is iconic as well. To this day I consider the usage of Nancy Sinatra's cover of 'Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)' as one of the best ways of intertwining a song into a story. I can't really pick a favorite between the two, since they both contain a handful of iconic moments. I really do hope that Tarantino releases Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair some day on Blu-Ray. Or at least I get the opportunity to see it at some screening near me.
