I can't take anyone seriously who thinks Django is silly yet then praises Kill Bill. I mean, two words: Pussy Wagon.
i posted in more depth about that in the other thread. kill bill didn't have anything (at least that i can remember) that was as jarring to the rhythm of a movie's tone as the "mask" scene in django
It's a bad kung fu knock off,
i think django was a bad spaghetti western knock off, and KB did a better job of being a kung fu movie knock off
Kill Bill is a ridiculously silly film.
i'll say it's absurd, but it's kind of meant to be absurd. you didn't have absurdity mixed in with a super serious tone or overall commentary about morality intermingling with its absurdist revenge plot
it was what it was. an homage to the over the top kung fu revenge flicks. nothing more. nothing less. and it did it well
i grew up loving kung fu movies and anti-hero westerns, and i think django kind of bastardized the latter while kill bill was in the spirit of the former. i'm not claiming the kill bills were amazing movies or anything
