|I actually had the pleasure of seeing Reservoir Dogs in the theatre. Not in re-release mind you, but on a whim and far too much vodka in 1992 when it was showing at midnight in a sketchy downtown Winnipeg theater. My companions and I joined the drunks and junkies holed up for $1.50 for 100 minutes. It was a turning point for me and Ive never quite looked at the usual Hollywood fare the same way since.
I saw Pulp Fiction on opening night and stayed for the late show. I simply couldnt move. Its been five years since Jackie Brown was released and I was beginning to give up on director Quentin Tarantino. Oh, I thought he was working on something other than those Rolling Thunder Pictures (films you wouldnt normally watch, but Tarantino showcases them with a little intro so youre sucked in Detriot 9000, Switchblade Sisters), but I wasnt really sure what was up until now.
The official Web site for Tarantinos fourth film, Kill Bill, is finally up and running at Kill-Bill.com. The trailer shows Uma Thurman in full motorcycle gear, kicking ass with a samurai sword. Theres Lucy Liu with a 70s flip, Daryl Hannah with an eye patch and David Carradine
well, just looking like David Carradine. Theres a fight scene over an enclosed Zen rock garden. Theres a hatchet flying through the air, theres a really cool song playing over the action. In short, its the fourth film by Quentin Tarantino. And it looks worth the wait.
After youve watched the trailer a few hundred times, go to the links page and check on current updates from unofficial sites where the film production rumours are flying fast and furious. They may be a little thin, but its all youve got til the fall release date.
