This was linked to from the Drudge Report.  An out-and-out rave.  Goddamnit, I want to see this movie NOW!

Don't read the fan-boy comments on AICN, I'm a little tired of 'reviews' that read "I so jizzed in my pants," or "that chick from Battle Royale was so freakin' hot!"  One of the first real press screenings was Wednesday night here in LA, and this was the first press article to be written.  The Variety review's a rave too (dunno if that's online yet, but it is very good).

Technically, one of the first reviews would be from Pete over in the other Kill Bill thread. Allow me to provide the second (for this site, at least).

This movie is incredible. I read the 1st draft of the script last year and thought, "if he pulls this off, this will be something absolutely new and amazing, but can he actually pull it off?" He sure can. This is unmistakably a Tarantino film...it's like the culimination of everything he's hinted at before. I really wish there had just been a five minute intermission between parts one and two, because I couldn't get enough of this.

A few other thoughts:

This is the goriest movie I've ever seen. KNB have truly been unleashed. If it wasn't for a strategic switch to b/w at a key point (detailed in the script, so don't blame the MPAA), this would get an NC-17. As it is, I'm surprised some of these things got past the censors. Jaw droppingly violent. Lucy Liu's comments a few months back were very appropraite.

The animation is stunning (and also NC-17 worthy).

The stuff that comes before the opening titles is a brilliant touch.

The RZA rules, and if you can leave this movie and not go buy the soundtrack, well...you've got more will power than me.

The Gold Trumpet was worried that this would be all action, but I don't think he has any idea what he's worried about. The action is just...shit. The whole movie is so hard to describe. It's just an amalgamation of everything you could possibly imagine Tarantino putting in a movie.

I love it. Can't wait until the tenth (and the 20th).

Do you feel it was right to break it into two parts?

Now that I've seen it, it makes perfect sense. Still, I'd rather be able to judge it as one big movie and not have to wait four months for the second half. I think an intermission would have been appropriate. But it ends on a perfect cliffhanger note...so I don't think people will be walking away unsatisfied at all.

I read in Empire that in Eastern cinemas the switch to b/w will not occur. True?

OK, Ghostboy, you trumped my fear of all out action in the ordinary sense, but do you still think I'll like the movie?

Hehehe
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

GT, I honestly can't tell whether or not you'll like it. I think, though, that if you go in expecting just straight action movie, you'll be surprised...whether or not its a pleasant surprise, we'll have to see.

I sure hope you like it.

at the end of volume 1, does it say like 'to be continued' or something?  or does it just end as if there was to be no part two?
