Well it turned out to be a great weekend for movies. We took a respite from pure ultraviolence (Oldboy, Rick-Oh, Grindhouse, heck even Gears of War…) and got lots of sex in between 70’s swordplay (SHING) and ketchup-spitting.
Mr. Tarantino: Now I know where 75% of Kill Bill comes from…and Elle Driver too. Shame on you…although I suppose it’s this sort of synthesis of new and previously created work that defines our era of mash-ups and remixes. You’re either totally ripping stuff off or combining it with original things to create something new, which I totally endorse, I just can’t decide which side of the fence to stick you on.
