I watched this movie on Netflix.

There are several Tarantino still on my list that I need to see. And I finally knocked off the Kill Bill films from that list.

While not as great as some of his other films, like say Inglorious Bastards, this film is still a lot of fun and good. Though you can already really see Tarantino's foot fetish getting into his movies here.
A story of revenge, from a strong woman with a lot of will power to avenge the death of her fiance and unborn child at the hands of her former lover and boss, Bill.
The movie was too long at first, and Tarantino was forced to split it into a Part 1 and Part 2.
As of such, the first part suffers a little from that with how it is an incomplete story that doesn't meet a resolution to stand on it's own as a single film. You're really meant to watch them back to back, but it's still good as is! It's hard to hold that against a movie in a case like this.

It is a solid action film with some great acting and high stakes.

9.7/10. One of Uma Thurman's best movies of the 2000's. She plays The Bride well alongside a great cast consisting of David Carradine, Vivica Fox, and Lucy Liu. The whole thing is a tribute to spaghetti westerns, foreign revenge movies, and martial arts too. One of the best scenes is the blood soaked fight between her and The Crazy 88's, well done choreography here. I would definitely recommend it for only hardcore fans of such movies, nobody under 18 or faint of heart. Uma Thurman's great here.


Continuity mistake: When The Bride is slashed on the upper back by O-Ren in their fight scene she collapses and lands on her back in the snow. After she gets up and the fight continues, there is no blood spot on the snow where she was lying. (01:29:55 - 01:31:10)

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.

Question: In the House of Blue Leaves, why does the lady manager switch off the lights during the fight between the Bride and the Crazy 88?

Answer: From what I understand the reason for the lights being off is the same reason for why the previous scene was done in black and white; to decrease the amount of 'graphic violence' in the movie in an attempt to keep an 'R' rating. I would assume that they had him shut off the lights for that scene as just another method to accomplish that task.

I believe the original question was asking why was it done within the context of the film (i.e. why did the character shut off the lights) not why was it done in reality. My best guess is that the manager switched off the lights thinking the 88 had a better chance of killing the bride if she couldn't see. True, they couldn't see either but there were so many of them one could possibly have gotten to her.
