  1. Loved this movie! My favourite scene is actually the anime flashback! I don’t know why, but I just love it. Maybe ‘cos I really get to understand her motives for being the way she is… Or just the graphics which are brilliant. :)

  2. The anime flashback scene sounds like a clever idea. I’ve not seen this film, but I know several people who are devoted fans.

    Thanks for joining the blogathon with this tribute to Lucy Liu and O-Ren Ishii!

  3. Awesome!! Her section of the movie is always my favorite, I love it. The whole dialogue of the speech in the board room is on the soundtrack… I’ve been known to—on occasion—recite along with it when I’m alone in my car. People probably think I’m getting a mad case of road rage, but I’m having fun :) Great write-up!

  4. Great choice, her parts are my favourite too, she’s a perfect example of how important it is to have a charismatic villain for a battle to be interesting. Thanks for joining us with both posts!

    1. Thank you! I definitely enjoyed writing it and getting to watch that boardroom scene a few times lol

      I agree that the villain in any story has to be just as interesting as the hero in order to make for a great battle scene. Luckily Tarantino understands that too :)

  5. Inspired villain(ess?) choice and one of my favourite Tarantino creations. That boardroom scene is one of the best in the two volumes, she’s just so masterful and commanding. It’s just a shame she had to die in such a gruesome way – but perhaps it wouldn’t have worked any other way!

    1. Totally agree! Sadly, I imagine it couldn’t have gone any other way but I do like that she was given a lot of time in the movies. I think that speaks to the relationship between her and The Bride.
