8-Bit Cinema’s ‘Kill Bill’ is every bit as gruesome as the original
Thanks to 8-Bit Cinema, you really only need two minutes to enjoy both volumes of Tarantino’s epic.
You don’t realize how many similarities Quentin Tarantino masterpieces share with a decades-old NES game—until you see them reimagined in the style of one.
Audiences may have had to wait several months to see both halves of Tarantino’s epic Kill Bill, but now, thanks to 8-Bit Cinema, a part of the YouTube channel CineFix, you really only need two minutes to enjoy it all.
Let’s face it, the two volumes’ main selling point is Uma Thurman’s violent and systematic revenge on her fellow assassins after they rained on her wedding day. And that’s all that you really see in the 8-Bit Cinema reimagining of the films. Clad in her trademark yellow jumpsuit, Beatrix Kiddo, better known as The Bride, slices and dices her way through characters like Gogo Yubari, Vernita Green, and, of course, Bill himself. The video looks almost identical to Nintendo’s popular 1980s video game series Double Dragon and even flashes controller commands during key fight scenes.

8-Bit Cinema struck gold recently with its interpretation of Mean Girls. Its other simple yet amazing masterpieces include renderings of classics like Inception and Fight Club, as well as another Tarantino trademark, Pulp Fiction.

Let’s hope that 8-Bit Cinema continues to tackle Tarantino’s entire library in the immediate future. Reservoir Dogs and Django Unchained would be fantastically—and appropriately—absurd.
