Great film! Even better than Vol.1. Wonderful use Morricone's music from Navajo Joe (1966). Daryl Hannah goes down as one of the all-time great movie villains. She deserves an Oscar nomination. Best fight ever between two women. **** out of 4 stars.

This Friday (the day it's released in the UK), I'm seeing Pt 1 on my friend's projector (8ft by 6ft screen). Then we're going to the cinema to see pt 2 (which I hear is as much influenced by spaghetti westerns as the first was by samurai films). It could potentially be the best day of my life.

It was amazing, better than Vol.1. I felt that the first film was a hong kong flick, but this was a spaghetti western, more or less. This was perhaps as entertaining as Takeshi Kitano's "Zatoichi".

I really can't believe how amazing it was. There was some neat use of Morricone music. When Bill first appears outside the church, it's the same theme as when Angeleyes first rides up in GBU. And then there's the FOD showdown theme later on too. (No bullet shield though, sadly).

I cant believe people are actually saying this film is good. It is by far the worst film i have ever seen. He uses 5 pieces of morricones music. Why does he use the theme from fistful, all budd does is walk out of a caravan, it's proper crap. Thats one of my favourite pieces of morricones.
Navajo joe was used twice, too shortly at the end i thought. A professional gun was used but it just didn't go with the scene. Thats the master of leone he used music perfectly to suit a scene, tarantino just uses a piece he likes, poor judgement for me.
Then the good, the bad and the ugly piece was used quite nicely i thought.
The dialogue is boring and i was just totally bored shitless when bill meats the bride.
Nothing happend in the film for me, it could have been told in 30 minutes at the end of the first film.
I was totally appaled by the shitness of it. I didn't particuarly think vol 1 was fantastic but it was entertaining, this one was just dull and nothing happens in it apart from two short fights and strange dialogue. I've heard reviews where they have said Leone would be happy with the homage he recieves in this film. First off i didn't really see any good leone esque bits, couple of close ups but leone is miles better than a cliche in western film making. I think Leone would turn in his grave at this film.
Well just my opinion funny how people love it when i want to forget it as soon as possible, thats life for you.
I was looking forward to this as well, and the GBU DVD, both are crap, what a shit week, any way bye for now.
I hope someone else agrees with me, funny if they don't like, but i thought it was it was just, to be plain, dull and uniteresting. What a shame.

I wasn't expecting anything like Leone, so I didn't have any preset expectations, it was pure ultra comic book, but I found it entertaining in its own way.

Nobody is going to make a Leone western ever again.

Funny I liked Vol.2 better. I thought the best and most recognizable Leone reference was when the Bride was framed in the doorway.  

The whole trailer-cemetary-trailer sequence was a hoot.

Since I've never seen Navajo Joe or a professional gun those refrences were lost on me.

I find it so hard to believe anyone wouldn't like Kill Bill. Fans of the Lone Wolf and Cub series of Samurai revenge films will agree with me that this is one of the best pieces of dialogue in any film ever:

"Mommy can we watch a video tonight?"

"Sure honey, what do you wanna see?"

"Can we watch Shogun Assassin?"

"Sure hon".

I also loved the zombie flick references when Beatrix rises from the grave.

No one has the monopoly of good taste. It depends on everyone.

You can like the movie, or not.

Actually there is one single fellow in this world who holds the monopoly for good taste. His name is Herman Smith, he lives with his his wife and two kids in a little appartment on the outskirts of Leeds, England, and he's not aware of it.

I just saw Kill Bill vol II today.   I thought the movie was great.  I was also surprised to hear so much Ennio Morricone music on it.  Here's what I recognized:

- Some of the less-familiar music from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
- The theme from Navajo Joe
- The theme from Il Mercenario (during the coffin scene)

Did I miss any?

Was his Death Rides A Horse theme in vol.1 or vol.2    
I don't know it well enough to recognise it. I've seen both films though, and recognised a lot of his music, but I can't seem to place this anywhere. I know it's in there though.
