My Movie Review of KILL BILL

KB-1Okay, I'm 20 years late considering the release date of this movie but I so rarely watch movies BUT when one of my favorite bloggers said this is a great movie I decided to buy it at the thrift store for $1.00.

I didn't "get" it.

One of the pastors at my church is a real movie freak and I asked him about it. He explained. I "got" it. But I still hated it. It's a movie that starts in the middle and never explains what happened before the movie started. One can deduce that the "hero" was as much as a slime ball as those she is hunting down which doesn't make me want to cheer for her as she shows no mercy in brutally killing and dismembering a hundred or so people.

The CD jacket says "Loaded with explosive action and outrageous humor". I guess I missed the humor part... unless it was the be-headings... all the times people were cut (lots of sword fights) and bleed like human fire extinguishers... or seeing a mother assassinated in front of her 4 year old child. If you find that kind of thing humorous then yes Kill Bill is a real laugh riot.

My pastor friend says the beauty of  director Quentin Tarantino in this film is that instead of a movie turning a comic into a movie he has taken a movie and turned it into a comic book.

I still don't get it.

How are you celebrating St. Uhro's Day

Over the last few days the snow has relinquished it's 6 month hold on Minot's Streets ( I wish I could say that was true for the rest of the landscape that is still buried at least two to six feet under) and revealed it's annual yield of pot holes… more
Maps are good and further Visual aids can reduce confusion.
Give me a map and I can get there. You and I both want our clients to "find us" in order to do business with us. Why not make it as simple as you can? I've found that even when I'm dealing with local people they want more then a street… more
Gardening In Minot ND

Tracks in the Snow
With the extremely cold winter we've experienced this year I have not been able (or desired to) get out and do a photo walk like I enjoy doing in the summer and fall of the year. My focus on yesterdays walk was the tracks left in the snow. I… more
