I am no doubt the last person with indoor plumbing to see Kill Bill, Vol. 1. The buzz has been great, and pretty much everybody I know has proffered liking this movie.
I thought it sucked.
Sure, the cinematography is interesting, and it’s extremely well done from a technical point of view, but the plot goes absolutely nowhere, and the characters make the writing in the Teletubbies seem nuanced and complex. Lots of sound and fury, but there’s nobody home.
Seriously, live action anime? Does the world need this? I vote nay.
