Real Fake History: Kill Bill: Massacre At The House Of Blue Leaves

Real Fake History Kill Bill

My latest YouTube addiction is Machinima’s Real Fake History. Even the opening introductory video is perfect, combining war footage with major scenes from action films/TV shows like Pacific Rim, The Avengers, and Game of Thrones. After introducing their History Channel inspired faux documentary series with Star Wars: The Battle of Endor, they actually upped my geek-fueled fervor by tackling Quentin Tarantino (my all time favorite director), and taking on Kill Bill Vol. 1’s Battle at the House of Blue Leaves… which you may remember features The Bride (Uma Thurman) taking on the Crazy 88 gang of Oren Ishii (Lucy Liu).

Definitely watch the video below.

Shotgun Wedding #1 cover by Edward PunShotgun Wedding
Written by William Harms
Illustrated by Edward Pun
Lettered by Troy Peteri
Cover by Edward Pun
Top Cow Productions, Inc.
Release Date: April 2, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Never, ever leave your fiancée at the altar, especially if she’s a trained assassin. In Shotgun Wedding, a new four-issue weekly mini-series event from Top Cow, writer William Harms and illustrator Edward Pun serve up a bitterly cold plate of revenge. Like the famous play The Mourning Bride by playwright William Congreve says, “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned.”

When international hitman Mike Stone leaves his partner and fiancée, Chloe, on their wedding day, Chloe plans a devastating course of retribution, not only with Mike as the focus, but also his loved ones. Years later, Mike is set to marry again, this time to a woman who believes him to be a simple antiques dealer. When Chloe finally catches up to him, she’s ready to unleash a wrath the likes of which no one could ever prepare for – and she’s not working alone.

Quentin Tarantino Won’t Be Making ‘Kill Bill Vol. 3’ Apparently

BAADASSSSS!   |

Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino is well known for spouting off ideas for movies he would like to make or see made but never come to fruition, but when he becomes devoted to making a particular film, he tends to see it through from writing the script longhand on yellow legal pads to the eventual theatrical release.

He had developed Inglourious Basterds for most of his directing career until it was finally released to great acclaim and fantastic box office in the summer of 2009. He also came up with the idea for what would become his genre-hopping revenge epic Kill Bill during a late night bull session with Uma Thurman (who would star in Kill Bill 1 & 2 as the vengeful assassin the Bride) on the set of Pulp Fiction. The movie was released in two parts in October 2003 and April 2004 and was also a huge critical and financial success for the energetic filmmaker.

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – The Final Chapter

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – The Final ChapterNOTE: For structural reasons and to ensure that this list is super-duper pretty at all times, we’ll be posting this same intro for all sections of The Decade List. If you’ve already read all of this, you can just head down to the continuation of our list!

Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks: we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be inside of the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!

We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.

With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out our Final Chapter of The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!

‘Kill Bill 3’ Still A Long Way Off; Quentin Tarantino To Do A Western Or Gangster Movie

The Movie God   |  @   |

Q.T.

At the end of last week, Quentin Tarantino proclaimed that there was definitely room for a Kill Bill Vol. 3 in the world (Read: Is Quentin Tarantino Armed & Ready To Make ‘Kill Bill 3,’ Possibly 4?). Naturally, when the highly-popular director makes claims like this, his fans go absolutely insane, but have trouble knowing if there’s truth to it, or if it’s just talking in the moment. Whether we actually get to see Kill Bill 3 or not, one thing is now known for sure: it is still a long, long ways off.

While in Mexico promoting his latest film, Inglourious Basterds, at the Morelia Film Festival, Tarantino went ahead and confirmed his hopes to make more Kill Bill movies. This is a great sign that he was being truthful, and that we will one day see the movie. But when? He went on to explain that his plan is to give star Uma Thurman and her Bride character’s daughter B.B. (Perla Haney-Jardine) ten years to recover before getting back to the cutting, hacking, and slashing. This would sadly put us in around the year 2014 before we saw the sequel. It also means that we will very likely get the storyline where Vernita Greene’s (Vivica A. Fox) daughter comes after the Bride for killing her mother, and young B.B. will now be deadly dangerous herself, setting up a battle between daughters.

Is Quentin Tarantino Armed & Ready To Make ‘Kill Bill 3,’ Possibly 4?

Ever since fan-favorite director Quentin Tarantino made Kill Bill, there’s been whispers every once in a great while that there could be more to the Bride’s (Uma Thurman) story. The obvious remaining story would follow Vernita Green’s (Vivica A. Fox) daughter, who Beatrix told to come find her when she grows up, and that is one of the two that have been rumored.

While on a talk show in Italy, Tarantino was asked about any possible sequels to Inglourious Basterds or Pulp Fiction that we might see. He answered that Basterds has a prequel story that could happen eventually, and that Pulp Fiction isn’t going to happen. Tarantino then turned the tables to the woman interviewing him and told her she forgot to ask whether he would do a Kill Bill 3, so she did, and he answered “Yes,” as the crowd went nutty. No one knows how serious he is about it, or when it could happen, but it looks like the story is there. After his promise of a one year delivery of Basterds actually happened, we have about a 50/50 shot of this going down.

‘Kung Fu’ & ‘Kill Bill’ Star David Carradine Found Dead

David Carradine

UPDATE #2: The Associated Press has confirmed upon a second autopsy by pathologist Dr. Michael Baden that the cause of David Carradine’s death was indeed asphyxiation and not suicide. Baden also made it clear that he does not yet know if this was accidental or homicide.

UPDATE: While complete details are still unknown, it does appear that suicide has been ruled out. At the moment, as sad as it is, it looks like Mr. Carradine had some rather extreme fetishes, and one of them went horribly wrong. While this doesn’t make things any less odd or questionable, it is comforting to know that this very talented actor did not take his own life.

CNN is reporting that David Carradine, the star of ’70s TV show Kung Fu and title character in Kill Bill, has been found dead in a Bangkok, Thailand hotel room. Sadly, Mr. Carradine was found hanging by a nylon rope in the closet of the room, leading authorities to believe the cause of death to be suicide. He was 72 years old.

Just coming down the wire from TMZ within in the past hour or so is word from a representative of Carradine’s who says that there is no way it was suicide, explaining “We can confirm 100% that he never would have committed suicide. It was an accidental death. Everybody is in shock.”

An autopsy was being performed in a Bangkok hospital which will hopefully shed more light on this all.

Carradine was perhaps best known as the Shaolin monk Caine on the TV show Kung Fu which ran from 1972 to 1975, but he also appeared in hundreds of other shows and movies including Gunsmoke, and Quentin Tarantino’s two-part Kill Bill, where he played the infamous Bill. In all, he has 222 IMDB listings, including six of which are in post-production. The last well-known movie he starred in was the sequel Crank: High Voltage. This incredible resume was similar to his legendary actor father John Carradine’s resume, who himself has 340 IMDB actor listings, including a short stint on his son’s Kung Fu.
