Welcome to the incredible world of Blu-ray movies. Only to be completely appreciated with the sum of all necessary components to carry this technology off!!

My Qualifying Statement: I have a HD Home Theater weighing in at about $2000 plus movies. A break down is; a Mitsubishi HD Projector (HC-1500) $800 (orig $1495), a Sony 5.1 Sound System (HT-SS2300) $399 (orig $499) and a Sony PLAYSTATION 3 with Blu-ray player $399 (orig $499). Sony High Speed HDMI Cables $150 (orig $180) and a HD Screen Paint and kit $180 for my 108″ viewing wall screen. With this True HD 1080p system I’ve assembled a HD Home Theater presentation sight and sound equal to an IMAX (on a smaller scale) presentation.

With this consideration and background information provided I can now comment on the Blu-ray version of KILL BILL Volume 1. Presented in the FULL HD 1080p (1920×1080 lines) 5.1 Dolby Cinema Sound format (5 speaker plus Subwoofer) we can now completely enjoy Quentin Tarantino genius in this complex action packed well executed, perfectly cast, Directed, and written critically acclaimed film.

Uma Thurman is “The Bride”, the Ultimate Revenging Samurai Warrior. She is perfectly cast, period.

This Blu-ray presentation is total eye candy and the musical Sound Track is the perfect accompaniment to the action. A must see!!!!

I’ve had this Blu-ray movie for 1 week and I have watched it 3 times. The replay value is endless. Tarantino has created the perfect masterpiece. (and this is only Volume 1)

Bonus Material: Only 480p (w/HDMI) but the 22 min Making of KILL BILL doc is worth the viewing and the 6 min music video of the Singing Group 5,6,7, 8’s is cute. Finally Tarantino film trailers.

Bottomline: Remember the Blu-ray experience is HDMI (1080p) 5.1 Sound in a HD Home Theater (the bigger the screen the better). Enjoy. This is a keeper with many encore performances to be had.

P.S. – Volume 1 ends setting us up perfectly for Volume 2 (I can’t wait!!!)

KB1 and 2 are PERFECT. But this review is for Kill Bill 1.

Plot: The Bridr is a woman who is getting married. On her wedding day, she gets a bullet put in her head by a partner in her assassin squad named Bill. She goes into a 4 year coma and when she wakes up, she is not ready to make nice. She has a hit list, which consists of the DVAS (Deadly Viper Assassination squad). She goes to Japan, gets Hattori Hanzo sword, and is ready to begin the slicing and dicing.

This is an AWESOME movie. Great Cast (Sonny Chiba? AWESOME!!!!), and great music. Uma Thurman is brilliant in her role as The Bride. She can play The Bride like nobody else can. I was also surprised to see Chiaki Kuriyama as GoGo, the sexy, schoolgirl-dressed Crazy 88 who is also strong in her performance.

And not to mention the blood and gore. Over the top, yet in a good way. Whenever a limb gets amputated, blood sprays out in an over the top fashion. Love it! And this is a great film overall, so see it!

Strike what I said in the title. This IS the best Quentin Tarentino film. This is the film he left his Blockbuster Video career behind to make. This is better than Pulp Fiction, by far. Every character is engaging, and the story is layered well, and laid out in the best possible way.

My only complaint with this Blu-ray Disc release is that they didn’t take the opportunity to give us Region 1 folks the uncensored version of the Bride’s fight with the Crazy 88s. In the Japanese version, this scene is in color. In America, they made it black & white to cut down the gore level to R-rating standards. You’d think that Blu-ray would be the ultimate version, especially this long after the movie’s initial release, but NOPE. It’s the same version you’ll get on DVD; Just better looking.

It’s still amazing, though. Get both volumes and make an evening of it.

We see after-effects of gunfire at a chapel and the start of a crusade of revenge by the Bride after she awakens from a coma. Her first victim being a pimping nurse attendant. After doing self-physical therapy to regain her walking skills, the Bride begins her revenge.
