Excellent. Showed Tarantino is a master of the art of film. His use of style shows that he can make nearly anything work. Just when you start thinking you have it figured out, he uses a different device, and yet throughout proves he makes it work. The opening scene’s pacing shows exactly that he knows how to give you just enough information, yet keep just enough, and leave you feeling completely impacted.
As for the fighting scenes, there were some scenes that stood out, yet some banked on just above average. The scene with Gogo Yusdlsdfjsomething with that swinging metal ball was awesome and memorable. The beginning knife fight in the kitchen was overall good. The one scene I wasn’t terribly impressed with was the big fight at the end in the restaurant. Still, I liked that he switched it to black and white. And overall it was still good.
The switch to anime was genius. Some of the best animation I’ve seen.
Tarantino’s choice of music is amazing. Where does he get these songs? And yet, they’re perfect.
I also, after seeing it, end up thinking I like having them in two Volumes. I thought the pacing was great, and that was a great place to end it, though I wish they would release Vol. 2 much sooner. I felt it was a good length for me to take it all in.
