The second half of the Bride’s revenge finds its way to store shelves on Tuesday. Personally, I want a version that allows me to watch the entire saga uninterrupted from start to finish, but I can live with the few seconds required to switch DVDs. Tarantino continues his homage to the ghosts of movie directors past with a more character driven story reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs-era dialog. Volume 2 pays vague homage to the Akira Kurosawa style of Samurai-western storytelling, relying less on the exaggerated bloodshed of Kill Bill Vol. 1. The end is somewhat predictable, yet still relieving, tying up loose ends and paving the way for a possible third installment with a twist. A deleted scene and film premiere footage featuring Robert Rodriguez’s band, Chingon, are two additional motivators for owning this DVD.
