Don’t need to say much about this one, its just very cool. There’s a whole slew of pics.
It sure seems to have taken a long time, but the release of the Kill Bill Volume 2 DVD is only 12 days away.
I’ve also notice some neat-looking boxed sets – one in France, and another in Japan. And then there’s this Popcorn/Zipper dust cover, which to get you actually buy the popcorn, and the cover thing is free.
I’ll let them describe to you what this award is all about:
They might as well be called the Short Attention Span Oscars, so dominated are the Academy Awards by films that open in the second half of the year. So, in recognition of all those award-worthy performances from January to June, we bestow our own mid-year movie honors: The Oscar Minors.
So without further explanation, Kill Bill V2 wins for Best Picture, Tarantino wins for Best Director, and Uma gets edged out for Best Actress.
Unofficial or not, its nice to see Tarantino’s work get recognized for its quality.
One of the foreign Kill Bill sites has a neat little Kill Bill flash game where you are Uma trying to kill the Crazy 88. I don’t know what it means, but click on the ‘hrat’ button to begin.
This is a catch-up post since I’ve been a bit too busy to post everything that people send me. Better late than never:
Via Emilie direct from France comes a few pics of QT at the Cannes Film Festival:
The Miramax store has some very cool Pulp Fiction bobble head dolls.
A long screed on Tarantino and the toilet? Not really sure what its about as I don’t have time to read it – but that doessn’t mean you don’t!
And finally, Brian has a question as to what kind of alcohol Bill was drinking in Kill Bill V2? Anyone know?
Accodring to JoBlo, Tarantino is auditioning Kelly Carlson, thought nobody seems to quite know what its for – whether its Inglorious Bastards, Casino Royale, Sin City, Vega Brothers…?
