Corrected entry: The hospital scene is impossible. All hospital workers, regardless of rank, work 12 hour maximum shifts. The guy that sold her to the trucker would have been off shift while she was in his car trying to "wiggle her toe." The movie states a 13 hour time frame in the car. Its impossible. At the end of the RN's shift, he would have been noticed dead. No way that 13 hours could happen without a major police investigation, which would include finding his vehicle in the parking garage. Plus, even in the scrubs she stole from him, she would not be able to wheel her way into the parking establishment without proper ID.
Corrected entry: When the bride picks the Hatori Hanzo sword from the rack she begins to remove it from the scabbard. Her left hand is at the opening of the scabbard as she starts to pull out the sword. The shot from further away when she totally removes the sword her left hand has moved further down the scabbard, away from the opening. (00:52:40)luchador
Corrected entry: It seems all the Tarantino films have some sort of "trunk-view" camera shot. Reservoir Dogs has Mr. Blond showing off his nabbed police officer who he kept in the trunk. Jules and Vincent get their guns from the trunk and discuss "we should have shotguns" during the trunk-view. Samuel L. Jackson makes a guy get in the trunk, shoots him, and later shows the body in the trunk to Robert DeNiro. The Bride in Kill Bill explains to Sophie the reasons she has left her alive all during an inside-the-trunk view. I'm beginning to see a pattern.
Corrected entry: Count the seconds between the clunks of the waterfeature during the climax of the film in the snow-garden. The clunks are never the same amount of time apart, which you would expect from a feature like that. (01:26:35 - 01:27:30)
Corrected entry: In chapter 2, at the chapel of "El Paso", the groom didn't wear a morning coat, although in "Kill Bill 2" he did. It's supposed to be the same moment in time.
Corrected entry: When the Bride is looking at Hattori Hanzo's various swords in his loft, she reaches for one in a reddish brown scabbard. Hanzo tells her to reach for a different one. When the whole display of swords is shown, there is no reddish brown scabbard on any of the swords. (00:51:55)
Corrected entry: The second time Gogo hits the Bride with the metal ball on the chain she falls backwards over a table and lands on her back. There is a shot of the Bride's face and there is a considerable amount of blood in her mouth all over her teeth. However, seconds later the blood is gone and remains gone throughout the rest of that scene.Tina Gilliam
Corrected entry: The Bride prominently displays her katana on the Air-O flight to Tokyo. The sword is never seen when the Bride rides to the House of Blue Leaves, nor is it on her person up to, and including the scene where she encounters Sophie in the ladies' room. The first time it appears is when the Bride hacks off Sophie's arm.
Corrected entry: With the amount of blood loss she sustained, there is no way for Sophie to have any colour in her face when she was told by the Bride to stay where she was; Sophie's face would have been extremely pale in colour, to say the least.
Corrected entry: When the lyrics start for the "Whoo-hoo" song in the restaurant, not one of the band members are moving their mouths.
Corrected entry: Something is seriously wrong with Vernita Green's daughter's age. Nikki would have to be younger than BB (Beatrix's daughter) if you consider that Vernita probably got pregnant after trying to kill Beatrix. This would but BB at least 9 months to a year older than Nikki. Now, if BB is 4, then is Nikki 2 or 3 and going to school? Not to mention that she was played by an actress who was 7 or 8 at the time, Nikki's age was handled incorrectly either way.Daniel Garner
Corrected entry: During the fight with the Crazy 88, there is one shot where the Bride stabs one guy, then uses him as a shield. When she first stabs him, there is no blood at his teeth. Then in the next shot, his mouth has filled up with blood. Blood doesn't travel that quickly.
Corrected entry: When Vernita Green and The Bride are in the kitchen, Vernita Green says the line "Very funny, b*tch". The shot then changes to The Bride, who is holding a coffee mug given to her earlier in the scene. But when Vernita yells "VERY FUNNY" and shoots at The Bride, the coffee mug changes from The Bride resting the handle on her fingers to her holding the cup.
Corrected entry: During the fight scenes with the crazy 88's, there's a lot of stopping and starting. When the action starts again, watch some of the 88's in the background, they just sort of make pretend martial arts moves at nobody in particular. Obviously most people don't notice, since they're watching The Bride, but once you notice it, it's really amusing to see.
O-Ren Ishii: As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, but always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you're unconvinced a particular plan of action I've chosen is the wisest, tell me so. But allow me to convince you. And I promise you, right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is: I collect your fucking head. [Holds up Boss Tanaka's head.] Just like this fucker here. Now if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, NOW'S THE FUCKING TIME! [Silence.] I didn't think so.
