Bill's Dead 

I watched Kill Bill, vol. 1 last weekend. I watched Kill Bill, vol. 2 tonight. They were pretty strange films. Well, really, they are more like one film, and it was a strange one. Pretty standard revenge type plot line with a twist towards the end. Lots of over the top gore, but in such a way that it is comical rather than gross. Lots of over the top acting, in a classic melodrama style. No comedic interludes. It leaves me feeling...unfulfilled. I liked the second volume more than the first, and I'd probably watch them again, but not for a long time. It's now past my bedtime.



I definitely preferred the second episode (I guess that's what you'd call them since they are supposed to be one continuous story) - I liked the character development much more than the fountains of blood in the first. Not Tarantino's best work - not at all.

Dear Ryan
I liked the Kill Bill movies…… but this post has nothing to do with that. I just wanted to let you know how proud I was of you. I compared your blog to some of our fellow seminarians at other seminaries (mainly to one up north) on googlefight.com and you won convincing victories. Not sure what it means, but I thought I would mention it.
