Kill Bill Vol.1, Vol.2 (2003,2004) - Quentin Tarantino

To be cool or not to be cool...that is the question.

You know, the first time I watched Volume 1, I couldn't enjoy it at all. I was glad to hear Tarantino's humorous dialogues back again, but honestly, I didn't like the movie at all. It was all about revenge. The revenge, is the worst English word I've ever known. How come so many people enjoy watching the violence after we witness the horrible scenes of war and terrorism? Anyway, if you like the world of sword fights and Yakuza, stuff, Go Nutts! ENJOY! It was nothing new visually, I thought, if you already have seen the sword fights among the Chinese and Japanese movies. Tarantino did recapture the scenes of them in an American way. That was it.
The Volume 2 was a good film to watch. It was visually conventional, and develops characters with more dialougues than volume 1. At the end, viewers may notice why Volume 1 was focused on revenge, itself. (I am sure that many of people might not get it.) In my opinion, Mr. Tarantino, if you have a good messege at the end, why would you concentrate on the subject? You are absolutely a stylished, creative, and great director. We understand that you are interested to show the minor society or the taboos that the most of American wouldn't see on a censored media including a movie, and a TV drama. Pulp Fiction had an irony behind the violence, but in this movie, there is none. Does it really necessary to keep doing it? Don't you think that many of your fans tend to love the volume 1, saying, "Hey men, the first one is cool, but the second one sucks!" That is my worriness and concern. (★☆☆☆ Volume 1, ★★★☆ Volume 2)

タランティーノは偉大なディレクターだが、いわゆるブレインウォッシュされた血の気の高いアメリカ人の多くは、Vol.1(復讐劇や仁義なき世界)を愛し、楽しみ、Vol.2(感情、愛情、生命力、気高さという人間らしいドラマ)を愛する、理解する人は少ないんじゃないかと危惧する。ま、汚い人は汚いことをするという真実を映画で見るのは、一般的にセンサーだらけのメディアでは滅多にないことで、それを見ることでスカっとする面もある。また、彼なりのおかしな気高さ、いいまわしは確かに冗談としては本当に可笑しい。だが、それでいいのか、アメリカ?それでいいのか、エンターテイメント?世界はとりかえしのつかないぐらい、暴力に満ちてるんだぞ??? 暴力と復讐と悲劇はもう見飽きたよ。
