    Fuckin' awesome. Can't wait. Who cares that the trailer puts Quentin in the forefront. RZA isn't an established director like Tarantino. In other words---he has an audience!! Damn, do people even watch movies for enjoyment anymore?

    And another thing. I know he's one of the producers but am I the only one who's bothered by the "Quentin Tarantino Presents" in the trailer and at the top of the poster? Not trying to start anything, but I couldn't get passed that and wondered if anybody else felt the same way.

    I'd say it's a double-edged sword. The Mark of Tarantino attracts some, repels others.

    I think that's mainly marketing, RZA is not a big name in the film world so attaching Tarantino's name brings in an automatic crowd (ie. the kill bill demographic) and it gives ppl a sense of what to expect.

    Why can't you get past it? 1) Tarantino's been presenting films for years like IRON MONKEY. 2) Hyping up the producer is a marketing tradition that goes back to the days of David O. Selznick and GONE WITH THE WIND. 3) RZA is RZA and has his own following, but he's also a first time director in a genre that hasn't fared well in the hands of American directors, even ones who have deep knowledge. There aren't The trailer looks good, but that's out of context and the movie might be garbage. Tarantino has a cred that helps negate skepticism, especially fanboy skepticism. 4) They're also really good friends and have been for years.

    Nadie you must be a blond RZA as the top star "bitch please"

    Not gonna lie, Lucy Liu sold me on this one. I didn't like the first "Kill Bill", but her O-Ren Ishii gave me life. I hope she gets more to do outside of martial arts flicks.

    Looks like fun but damn, I thought RZA was the star? He's not in the trailer very much. In the first 20 seconds and a quick cut in the last 10 seconds and that's it.

    I'll probably get flack for this but it's glaring to me.

    I'll still definitely see it though.

    I wonder if this is going to be an over the top homage to the genre with a hip hop soundtrack or is going to add something to it. Either way I'm eager to see it. Any twist or variation on the form is enough to get me in. Also I think the film looks exciting and fun. Rza can be crass but I feel as though he can be extremely creative .

    Kudos on the visuals but nothing beats that feeling you get from watching Hong Kong style films. IMHO, this has too many known actors hamming it up as if to say "Hey look at me, I'm doing a Hong Kong action style film. Meh. I'm gonna go watch some Donnie Yen.

  • maurice emel | June 29, 2012 12:03 PM

    I think this is more a case of friends working for friends on the cheap. This is only a 20M dollar movie, and Russel Crowe alone can likely demand that much. Crowe said himself said on Charlie Rose he did the movie only cause RZA is his friend and he asked him to be in it, and he wanted to help him out w/his debut. I'm sure the same goes for Lucy Liu who worked w/RZA on or off set of Kill Bill. Having friends in high places pays off sometimes ;)
