We went shopping yesterday at a giant mall about a half hour away. We always end up getting more than we can comfortably fit in the car (No, I don’t own an SUV – I actually have some concern about my fellow human beings on this planet), which makes the trip back an adventure.
Anyway, we found some good buys on a couple of DVDs. I got Reservoir Dogs and my wife got Moulin Rouge! They were 10 bucks each. Our friend was with us, and she mentioned that she had Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Volume 1 (see my Recent Films on the right. Long story short, she loaned us her copy, and we saw it last night. What a wonderful piece of cinema. Highly stylized with nods to a number of genres and filmmakers. Over the top as far as blood is concerned, but it’s so obviously stylized, that it’s plain it is not real. I’m looking forward to the sequel which has just been released to theaters (Kill Bill Volume 2).
