If you saw Kill Bill this weekend, no doubt you immediately became enamored with the Cruel Master Pai Mei.

I have no idea where today’s comic comes from. Probably from the fact that Cami and I did – in fact – see Kill Bill Vol. 2 on Saturday night and then spent most of Sunday afternoon cleaning up the house. I guess I thought it would be funny if Cami was treating me like a 5 year old “playing ninja” by shooing me out of the house with a broom. I dunno!

My opinions on Vol. 2 are pretty consistent with the majority. I thought it was a great film. Tons of wonderful movie moments dotted all throughout the film. “OH MY GOD!” moments, as I like to call them. Mostly because it’s been quite a while since I have exclaimed that phrase out loud in a public theater for quite some time. That’s how well Kill Bill Vol. 2 grabs your lapels and shakes you until you hand over your undivided attention.

I enjoyed the pacing of this film much better than the last. There were several slow, drawn out dialogue pieces – but I never felt they weighed the production down. The film is all about tying up loose ends – and the story works in such a circular manner, it’s fun making the mental leap from the last outing to the first outing.

In retrospect, I can see why Tarantino opted to split his movie into two volumes instead of risking the possibility of delivering a single, watered down version. Make no mistake, this IS one movie. It just took a little extra time to tell.

Uma Thurman is a revelation in this movie, but you don’t realize it as you watch it. She inhabits The Bride so thoroughly, you forget that this is – in reality – a pampered actress that is flying around on screen, emoting and screaming her heart out, crying and heaving and on fire with passion. And when she draws a bead on you, she stares through you. It’s a thoroughly convincing performance, all the more astounding considering it’s an action movie.

I could go on and on about KBv2, but I’ll leave it for you to see for yourself. You OWE it to yourself. Don’t have this movie spoiled by me or anyone else. Go to the theater and see it now.
