It's about bloody time! If you're like me, you refrained from getting the DVD releases of Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Kill Bill Vol. 2 because it was completely inevitable and obvious that something else was coming out. And, it wasn't just the opportunity for a box set (or rather special box set, since a simple one already exists) -- the releases were ridiculously bare-bones -- especially for QT. The first had a brief featurette with some interview clips from major players, some music videos and Quentin Tarantino trailers, and the second had its own featurette and one deleted scene. As much as I wanted to see the films again, I wasn't about to fork over money just to have to spend it again in a few months. Unfortunately, months turned into years, but finally there is a big box set on the way, which Amazon lists as Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair.

They don't even have a picture up of the cover yet, but nevertheless, there are a number* of things worth noting. First, it will come out in less than five months -- on November 6th, so we know how long we have to wait. Secondly, it should be a hell of a lot better than the previous DVD offerings, and this isn't just the words of hope. There is no list of features or specs yet, but the set includes four discs -- which I assume means two per movie. I think it's safe to say that we should get ready for a crap ton of features. As for the last two tidbits -- it's run-time is listed at 247 minutes (4+ hours long) and that's probably why its rating is NC17. I can only imagine what this extra footage holds! Now if you'll please excuse me, I feel an incredible urge to whistle.
