They Call Me DJ Bruce

I just rediscovered I Know Where Bruce Lee Lives (AKA The Ultrainteractive Kungfu-Remixer), after not having seen it for six years. The music reminds me of some of the music in Kill Bill (especially "Victory" mode), and the German sound bytes are priceless! Now I know how to say "I'm gonna send you to Hell!" in Doitsu-go. This site goes hand in hand with Giant Robot's Bruce Made Tapes graphic.


Regarding Kevin's thoughts on Kill Bill- although I don't disagree with him, I love the movie just the way it is. I was far too engrossed in it to lend any attention to any thoughts get in the way of me enjoying the experience. Before I watched it, I remember thinking that this movie is Tarantino's Spaghetti Western, and so I just accepted it as it was and didn't try to "count bullets" (like I usually do). I do think it would be interesting to see how the scene would turn out if it was choreographed in a manner authentic to real Japanese swordsmanship (not the Kendo-ized version, but rather the "two hands as one" Musashi interpretation).

The fight against the Crazy 88 really reminded me of the fight scene in the restaraunt in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, (and evoked memories of Hiro Protagonist's showdown in the Black Sun) except for the gallons of blood and countless dismembered body parts in Kill Bill. It's one of those scenes where there is so much gore that you can not help but laugh, and revel in the comic absurness of its over-the-top brutality. I experience the same type of laughter watching the Evil Dead series, especially when Ash smashes the possessed girl over and over with a 4x4 post (smack! smack! smack!) when she refuses to quit her insane laughing fit.

I don't know about you, but I have developed a photographic memory for Tarantino movies. Also, I can pretty much predict what's going to happen from scene to scene when watching his new flicks. I still base a lot of judgements regarding people I hang out with by running references to Pulp Fiction past them and watching for a reaction.

We happy?



Yeah, I'm happy because I got to see the second installment last weekend and I was not disappointed. What did you think of it? I kind of liked seeing Carradine acting for most his time in the movie.


Volume 2 comes out in Seoul this coming Friday.

Sorry-- the "We happy?" was a "Pulp Fiction" reference. Your brother was talking about running PF references past people, so I couldn't resist.

The "We happy?" moment is when Jules and Vincent are in the apartment of the three boys who've screwed over Marsellus Wallace. The Flock of Seagulls boy has told Vincent where the suitcase is. Vincent finds the case, opens it, and is entranced by the glow of Whatever Lies Within. Jules impatiently asks him, twice, "We happy?" Vincent snaps out of it and says, "Yeah, we happy," then shakes his head in disbelief as he closes the case.

I agree with you that Uma's fight was reminiscent of Zhang Ziyi's restaurant fight in "Crouching Tiger." At some points I was also reminded of Neo vs. 100 Smiths in "Matrix Reloaded," simply because most of the 88s were dressed similarly.


PS: Apologies if you already knew the "We happy?" reference.



No appology needed- It went right over my head. Time to watch Pulp Fiction again, I guess is what that means.
