“Say   what   one more time, motherf*#@&!”

Film Review

Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Sword-swinging sequel segues into surprising storytelling

For all his flaws, Quentin Tarantino is—let's face it—a genius. His positively giddy enthusiasm for the film medium has created some of the wittiest, grittiest cultural touchstones of the last 20 years. His enthusiasm, however, makes him a hard filmmaker to pin down. Right now, Tarantino says he wants to direct the next James Bond film, his World War II drama Inglorious Bastards, his long-promised Vega Brothers project and part of pal Robert Rodriguez' comic book adaptation Sin City. Thanks to his scattershot interests, Q.T.'s only directed five films in the last 17 years. And two of those (Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2) are actually one movie.

There are times when TV blatantly insults my intelligence. And there are times when I just want to smack TV upside its big, fat cathode ray. Take, for example, “The Swan.”

Week in Sloth

Thursday 15

“The Apprentice” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) Please, somebody tell me that Omarosa is actually Ashton Kutcher in a mask. I mean, this woman can't possibly be for real, can she? Surely she's a plant designed to punk out the other contestants. Surely no human being could be as annoying whiney and disruptive.

I think Kwame should lose the apprenticeship to Bill for not booting her out the door the minute The Donald introduced her back into the game. Well, we'll see on tonight's live, two-hour finale.
