Cool illustrated Kill Bill poster over at Nerd Bastards
Great comment section over at i09 discussing the best villain introductions of all time. Hans Landa from Inglourious Basterds gets some love, as does a pair of Kill Bill characters.
Artist Brett Barkley was recently commissioned to create a swordfight between The Bride from Kill Bill and Afro Samurai. Click the link for the big version.
Remember the box of Kaboom cereal that Vernita Green used to hide a gun in Kill Bill?
Well, Ace has put together a post with everything you could ever want to know about Kaboom cereal. My favorite tidbit:
Kaboom was for people — children, I mean — who had decided to give up on life. And it’s a sad thing for a six year old to have already thrown in the towel and said, “Ah well. The hopes and dreams of kindergarten are ultimately exposed as so much folly. Give me the Kaboom, Ma. I’m ready to settle.”
With Tarantino, the movie rumors never seem to die. It’ll be interesting to see how many more times the possibility of a Kill Bill 3 movie get resurrected.
Variety has a pretty long (for them) article about Quentin Tarantino’s directing style. Its an interesting inside look at his methods and how the actors involved perceive them.
“The first thing he does is clear the entire set of all crew, and you just run the scene until you’ve got it down, and everyone feels their movement and behavior are natural in the space,” Roth says. “His movies are so detailed and beautifully composed, you feel like he has a graphic novel in his head. But it’s the opposite. All the camerawork is determined by the actors.”
Great video of a toddler dressed as the Bride from Kill Bill in her iconic yellow track suit.
I haven’t paid much attention to his “Tarantino presents…” film this year, but saw the trailer for The Man With The Iron Fists his weekend and it looked fun. The big fight scene in the trailer reminds me of the big fight scene in Kill Bill.
The University of Colorado’s International Film Series is doing a group of Tarantino films over the next week or so if you are in the area.
