‘Member when TV borrowed the Kill Bill theme for EVERYTHING?
Boy, I really ear-wormed people with that Street Fighter x Juri x Kill Bill article. It seems that many of you spent the whole day wandering around whistling “Twisted Nerve.” My apologies… even though I’ve probably just triggered the same tune again. Kill Bill was a saga scored with a lot of indelible tunes, with some of them being kinda annoying in that regard.
It may surprise you, but I’m not really a huge fan of Tarantino’s tribute to “DO YOU KNOW I WATCH OLD MOVIES?” The films enabled a sub-atomic level of homage and self-indulgence that has bothered most (but not all) of the auteur’s work since. I am happy, however, that so many great stars – Hannah, Chiba, Carradine, Parks, Haig, and Kuriyama – got a payday, and it also looked a helluva lot of fun to shoot. Maybe I owe the Kill Bill duology a long-overdue revisit, but there are only so many hours and movies one can fit into this short life.
Speaking of time, I’ve struggled to find some for myself this week. So it’s mostly been bursts of CoD: Zombies and the odd rumble on Killer Instinct for old time’s sake, before crashing out in front of “easy” flicks like Raw Force, Hard Target, and Sister Street Fighter. I do have a couple of games lined up for this weekend that I’m excited to get stuck into, so hopefully I’ll get bitten by that bug once again.
But I’m willing to wager that all y’all are already elbow-deep in gaming goodness. The joyous thing about gaming is that there’s always a genre to suit your mood. So whether you’ve spent your week throwing lead and fists in harm’s way, or just letting the hours slide by with a calming city-builder, jump into the comments below and share your experience with us, pals.
Have a safe and pleasant weekend, from all of us at Destructoid.
