Do you find me sadistic? You know, I bet I could fry an egg on your head right now, if I wanted to. You know, Kiddo, I'd like to believe that you're aware enough even now to know that there's nothing sadistic in my actions. Well, maybe towards those other... jokers, but not you. No Kiddo, at this moment, this is me at my most...
Bill... it's your baby...

I am a real movie fan whose two favorite movies are "The Sand Pebbles" and "Flight of the Phoenix" (the 1965 original, not the pathetic recent remake with Dennis Quaid trying to better Jimmy Stewart). I was excited when a friend gave me Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 on DVD for Christmas. Last night my SO and I watched Vol. 1. Or tried to. This is easily the most loathsome, gratuitously violent and sickening film I've ever tried, and the ONLY gift DVD I've shut off part way through.
I don't know what compels anyone to make a film like this, nor makes otherwise intelligent people praise such a work. By the time we got to chapter 4 -- the animated segment in which a child watches her parents being slaughtered like animals by sadistic killers -- we had had it. By unanimous consent, we switched it off and put both DVDs in the trash.
I can't truly express how horrid and disgusting is this film, devoid of any entertainment value except for the mentally ill. If you have not seen it, don't. If you have been given a DVD, pitch it. That this film has been honored says a lot about Hollywood, and none of what it says is flattering.
