And "Bill" is of course a reference to this little-know gem:  http://imdb.com/title/tt0082075/

another reference:
-Kill Bill Vol. 2 was directed by Quentin Tarantino, who also directed Kill Bill Vol. 1, which was directed by the same person who directed Pulp Fiction, which was directed by Quentin Tarantino, whose last name is an anagram of Tarnation, which was directed by Jonathan Caouette, who was recently at an event with Werner Herzog, who directed Grizzly Man, which wasn't nominated for a Best Documentary Oscar, unlike March of the Penguins, whose director walked onstage making penguin jokes, which was the same thing Roger Avery also did when he won for Pulp Fiction, which starred Uma Thuman, who was also the star of She's Gotta Have It, which was directed by Rob Reiner.


that's THE most obscure film-geek reference in the movie. now everyone listen to pozer. Bill is dead and so is this thread.

worst post EVER.  :bravo:

And that's a reference to QT's little rhyme lines.  ex: "My name's Paul and this shit's between ya'll."

"My name's Pit, and your ass ain't talking your way out of this shit."

I was watching this Tobe Hooper movie last night called Eaten Alive and in the very first scene there's a close up of Robert Englund's zipper and he goes "My name's Buck, and I like to fuck" and then he proceeds to try and rape a girl. I knew Tarantino didn't come up with that on his own!

MUST WATCH: http://hollywood-elsewhere.com/2011/02/kill_bill_remix.php

Everything in Kill Bill is stolen.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

It's a good video. It should make people who like Tarantino and Kill Bill more impressed with the film.

One I thought of recently watching the Green Hornet (tv show) is if the crazy 88 masks are referencing that?

indeed. if i remember correctly, thurman's description of liu's boadyguard/main crazy 88 dude goes something like "the bald guy with the kato mask..."

I said this on GT's facebook page already - I think the film sometimes confuses genre conventions with homages to a single film. for example, all the sword stuff came from the chanbara, or samurai b-movies, as opposed to a kurosawa film. and I think QT, in an interview, said put some Goddard in there that was entirely missed, and the whole film is dedicated to Chang Cheh, as it said in the opening credits, but the guy did not pick up a single chang cheh reference.

I think he did a good job with the editing. that was fun. still he reminds me of a thing tarantino said at a Q&A - critics love to project.
“Tragedy is a close-up; comedy, a long shot.”
- Buster Keaton

I don't know what it is, but I started watching the Everything is a remix series last week and it rubs me the wrong way.

I feel like it's a non-statement.  Everything has always borrowed from something else.  Art influences art.
Is he trying to call things like this out?  Is he expecting us to be surprised?  When Kill Bill first came out, most of these things were discussed to no end.  QT is pretty proud of this stuff.

I don't know... just seems like a pointless project... information that most people already know presented in a rather uninteresting way.
