Hey I just watched the DVD this morning... pretty neat stuff.  I didn't look at the special features, I just watched the movie.  But uh, at least I can confirm that the transfer looks nice!

yeah the transfer looks pretty good, and there seems to have been some audio work done as well. certain effects i remember from the theater were either slightly altered or non-existant. And I am glad the subtitles for the characters run along the bottom of the screen instead of into the picture.

I read that Tarantino is going to splice the films together for a theatrical, as well as dvd, release. He is also talking about putting out 2 disc special editions for each film. And he mentioned that he'd like to put out a seperate release for a documentary. with the single disc versions that's 6 dvd releases for these 2 movies... no wonder Weinstein loves him so much, he's a whore.

Don't know if anyone has said this here, but I may as well.  At Best Buy, KILL BILL IS ONLY $9.99 when you buy another Tarantino flick.  That is, it's two for $20.  I highly recommend you check this out if you want Kill Bill and are lacking in the other Tarantino flicks milieu.  This is a great deal, considering how expensive Pulp Fiction, and especially Jackie Brown, were at one time.

Of course, I already have all three, so I'll still be waiting for the super-deluxe box set or whatever.

EDIT: Clarification, Mac told me that this is just for Kill Bill + Reservoir Dogs.  Two for $20.  Pulp and Jackie are on sale for $15.99, though, so still a good deal.

Does anyone know how a widescreen TV would handle this?  Will it cut out the subtitles, or add in black bars, or move the subtitles up?

On mine, with a movie that is shot 2.35:1, there are still black bars on the top and bottom and the subtitles are in the black space (unless the transfer keeps them on-screen from the release print). When a film is shot 1.85:1 it fills the entire screen and the subtitles are superimposed over the film.

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

Kill Bill Vol. 1 Sells 2 Million Units on First Day
Source: Buena Vista Home Entertainment

On its first day of availability, Miramax Home Entertainment's Kill Bill Vol. 1 sold 2 million combined units on DVD and video in North America, it was announced today by Rick Sands, Miramax chief operating officer, and Bob Chapek, President of Buena Vista Home Entertainment. The 2 million units sold to date has Kill Bill Vol. 1 "chopping" up its competition. Kill Bill Vol. 2 opens in theaters nationwide on Friday.

Rick Sands, Miramax chief operating officer, said, "We are thrilled by the response from consumers to 'Kill Bill Vol. 1'. It is an extraordinary achievement and reaffirms that Quentin's films are true movie events. The strong sales confirm that the DVD is sought after not only by Quentin's loyal following, but also by a wide range of movie fans across the country."

"We couldn't be more excited about the success of 'Kill Bill Vol. 1' on DVD and video," said Bob Chapek, President of Buena Vista Home Entertainment. "Quentin Tarantino has created yet another amazing film that audiences are embracing. With these incredibly strong day one sales, consumers are signaling a strong debut for 'Kill Bill Vol. 2 in theatres this Friday."

''Kill Bill'' braces for $100 million week. Between the first-day DVD sales of 2 million for ''Vol. 1'' and the theatrical opening of ''Vol. 2,'' Tarantino's saga is poised to earn nine figures
Source: Entertainment Weekly
 
Revenge is sweet -- and lucrative. Between the release of ''Kill Bill -- Vol. 1'' on DVD earlier this week and the theatrical opening of ''Vol. 2'' on Friday, Quentin Tarantino's saga of the vengeful Bride (Uma Thurman) is poised to earn $100 million this week. Variety does the math: Tuesday saw ''Vol. 1'' sell an impressive 2 million DVDs -- that's $40 million right there. The trade paper expects total first-week sales and rentals of the video to reach at least $70 million, about what ''Vol. 1'' earned in theaters. Add to that an expected $30 million opening-weekend box office from ''Vol. 2,'' and you have a nine-figure week for Buena Vista Home Entertainment and Miramax. That's almost enough to make parent company Disney forget ''The Alamo.''

Universal Pictures Japan has just announced the region 2 release of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1. Due on April 16th, the film will arrive with an anamorphic widescreen transfer (of the uncut Japanese version), both Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS Surround tracks, English and Japanese subtitles, a behind-the-scenes look at fight sequences and a making-of featurette on the animated sequence. Retail is 3,800 Yen. Also available on the same day is a lavish Limited Edition box set featuring the DVD, a 1/10 scale "Hattori Hanzo" sword, a Lego-style "Bride" figure from Kubrick, your very own "Okinawa" T-shirt and a 24-page color booklet. Retail for this bad boy is 7,600 Yen. Click on the thumbnail for a look at the contents.

Super R2 Kill Bill Box Set
Why don't we get sets like this?
 
Irritated with the black and white scene in Kill Bill? Annoyed with the lack of extras? I hope you have $180.

MovieTyme, a U.K. company with a U.S. office, has a sweet special edition box set of the Tarantino chophouse pic, which includes a booklet, blood splattered doll and a replica of the Hanzo steel used to slice and dice O-Ren and the 88s.

It'll cost you, though: $179.98, shipped from California, and it's a region two disc, so you need a multi-region player.
