    There's a new movie on the way about Bill's death- the real Bill, that is. David Carradine was found dead in a Thai hotel a year ago, and now his ex-wife has written a book about his untimely demise. I'm sure the book will talk about he autoerotic asphyxiation claims. KIll Bill Vol. 1 was definitely Carradine's and Tarantino's best films. I think Vol. 1 was much better than the sequel. The action was much more intense.
