Kill Bill Vol. 2 - 8/10

Kill Bill Vol. 2 (

Easily the best movie I've seen since Lord of The Rings: Return of the King. The only other memorable movie I've seen this year is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (

Far more .... er, dignified - and that's an odd term when it comes to Tarantino - than Vol. 1. Kind of a flip-over from Vol. 1 ... this movie has more substance than style, IMO. Bill's monologue on comic book heroes and their alter-egos is brilliant ... very Pulp-Fiction-esque. One chapter (I think it was called The Cruel Tutelage of Pai Mei) is shot very well - the bleached and grainy look is reminiscient of the kung-fu movies of yore ... the ones that Star Plus used to air in its early days.

Nothing interesting in the new releases this weekend. I'm going out of town, and might not get a chance to see anything ... but I'm debating on watching The Punisher. It seems a little too wishy-washy (!) to me ... not comic-booky as Spiderman or The Hulk, but more of a general action movie. Will probably just wait for the DVD.
