OK I finally saw Kill Bill V2 tonight. We were 5 total in the theater, thats what you get for waiting. I liked it alot but I still think it should've been released as one film, because as two as much as I liked Part two , Part one had so much more energy to it. The theater we saw it at should be ashamed for charging 9 bucks for a scratched up totally awfull print. Cannot wait for the DVD to see it "Pristine'
I only got to see it last night also, and the print was terrible. I was almost ready to complain. Those scenes in the first half hour that take place in the desert are very light and it's easy to see the scratches in the print. So, SO irritating!
But DVD wise...I loved these films and there is no way I can wait for a box set. I'll buy the box set as well if the extra features are worth it and the DVDs are the Japanese cuts.
Deleted scene with MJW, that sounds pretty sweet. I like the Making Of featurette on the Vol. 1 DVD, definitely better than your average back-slapping fluff promotional piece, so it'll probably be good on Vol. 2 as well.
The two movies are too long to be edited back together on one disc. Tarantino is reportedly satisfied with the US version of "Vol. 2" and the Japanese version of "Vol. 1". When the "super box set" comes out I imagine it'll be those two versions of the films, but they'll still be seperate. In any case, they'll never be on one disc. If they have to be split up between discs, there's really no reason to edit them back together.
