I do however believe that I may have chose one of the worst times possible to quit, or perhaps my life is always in a state of mayhem and it has just been amplified by my self made quit plan, who can know for sure? But the shit seems to have been coming on thick and fast this week and I am getting to the point where I am fighting the urge to rip some people a new asshole. Team that simmering level of frustration with a good measure of PMT, a week of NAPLAN testing at school, a trip to the hospital with Seth, an abundance of bills and no money in the bank and an overwhelming melancholy that only withdrawals can offer you, and I am slowly and yet very rapidly, losing my fucking mind! And it is only Wednesday! Bloody brilliant!
Even though I really do want to quit, I do still have to say that the government really are massive assholes when it come to cigarettes taxes. You don't see them harassing drinkers or gamblers or morbidly obese people do you? It's always the smokers that are getting it up the arse, and have you ever known a family to be ruined because someone smoked? Unlike alcohol or gambling, it's not that offensive if you really get down to the tin tacks of it all, but the government just doesn't want anyone to smoke, that's their target group, that's what they're aiming for. I get it, it's gross and unhealthy, but it does feel like they're targeting a minority and beating a dead horse now, let it go for fuck sake, we get it already! Look at me willingly torturing myself to the point of wanting to neck myself to stick to the status quo and comply, we smokers truly fucking get it!
See, a little cranky much? It's all temporary and fleeting I tell myself....go with it....it gets better...stick to the plan and above all else, don't kill anyone or anything, that's just gonna make more bad karma!
Release Dates: 2003 and 2004
Rating: R 18+
Running Time: 248 mins total
A two part martial arts film written and directed by the king of gore based action films, Quentin Tarantino. Initially set for a single theatrical release, the movie was divided into two films due to its run time of over four hours. Both Kill Bill volumes received a massive cult following and were universally appreciated for their highly stylized approach to violence and revenge.
A former assassin, simply known as 'the bride' (Uma Thurman) seeks her revenge on her former colleagues and their notorious leader Bill (David Carradine) after they attempt to kill her and her unborn child.
This is the finest mixture of uber cool and ultra crazy characters to ever have been brought together; clearly a Tarantino homage to classic Kung Fu movies and 60's and 70's splatter based gore-porn. But it works, it really works; it's entertaining, interesting, well cast, artistically thoughtful and visually pleasing.
A lot of people thought that the second movie was not as good as the first, which I completely disagree with, and although the tone does change, the second movie doesn't lose its momentum or vision. These are must see movies for serious action film lovers.
FINAL SAY: You and I have unfinished business.
