Part of me thinks that he was pissed off by the criticism heaped on Part 1 "all style, too much violence, not enough dialogue, blah blah blah", so he felt the need to really hammer home the character dev and dialogue this time. But I hope I'm wrong. Maybe he didn't even shoot any of that last fight...

yeah thats a good point.  i hope thats not the case either, (although if it WERE the case) maybe in some future release or on the deleted scenes a better contstruction of the movie can be made.  i think thats probably right, because he felt like there was SO MUCH action in one he could tone down/lose a lot of it in two, but i think that was a big mistake.  he needed those extra little bits in the budd/elle/bill moments to really make this movie better.

but i can go sherlock homes on dat ass and find the reason why you didn't like resevoir dogs by analyzing your post..


what does excrement mean?

i like RD. when i said it was shit, i ment compared to his other films.

Quote from: NEON MERCURY
ha!    it seems that you and your friend have the same critiqing skills.....


what you mean by this? are you suggesting that the reason i said RD was shit is because i think its boring? or do you think it was wrong of me to have immediately dismissed my friend’s opinion because of the fact he nearly fell asleep during it?

how is that? it remains in the top 5 below only 2 new releases. i hardly call that getting its balls kicked in.


You obviously have no knowledge of box office trends. Its $25 million opening was all hype. Anytime a movie plummets as much as this one has in its second week means it won't have legs. The people who wanted to see it have seen it.

i think the studio was aware of that though.  a QT movie (and especially one as weird as this) is not exactly mainstream fare.  and the studio knows that it wont play with middle america, so they find other creative ways to cover their asses.  like, splitting one movie into two, and putting out 6 different dvds.  if they can take that small core audience and shake out a hundred dollars each, then they can still turn a big profit!

uh huh, but like i said, how is it the film got its balls kicked in if the two films that are above it made less in their opening weekend than Vol. 2 did last weekend?

That's not Middle America. It's simply maximizing profit from minimal content.

You're arguing something you don't understand. There wasn't as much hype. Kill Bill was all hype. The DVD came out the same week. The real question is how a movie holds up. I don't know how either new release will hold up. But a 60% drop for Kill Bill means a fast exit.

Secondly, you've answered your own question. 2 movies opened with less than Kill Bill in its first week, but more than KB in its second. That means its a plunge.

He's apologizing to somebody who didn't even say anything.
