THE DL: The Bride’s seeking revenge against Bill and the former members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, not just because they tried to murder her on her wedding day, but because they also claimed her unborn child.
RESIDENT BAMF: Gogo. Of course, like all of Quentin’s films, it’s full of detailed, quirky and unforgettable characters, but maybe Kill Bill more than others. However, you have to give it to Gogo, O-Ren Ishii’s right-hand gal, the 17-year-old, sadistic and extremely disturbed schoolgirl whose weapon of choice is a spiked meteor hammer.
WHAT A QT! (CLASSIC QUENTIN MOMENT): FEET. There are so many feet in this movie! The Bride’s feet, O-Ren’s feet, The 22.214.171.124’s feet, Sofie Fatale’s feet, Elle Driver’s feet, and a bunch of severed feet. Feet bare, in socks, in shoes, in slippers, with painted nails… But most significant of all, a scene dedicated solely to The Bride’s big toe.
PLAY THAT FUNKY MUSIC: It’s so difficult to choose just one. Elle Driver whistling “Twisted Nerve“? Anything from the Japanese rockabilly band The 126.96.36.199’s playing at O-Ren’s shindig? I think I’ll have to go with Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” because it’s just the perfect intro to the film.
I am gonna ask you questions. And every time you don’t give me answers, I’m gonna cut something off. And I promise you, they will be things you will miss.
