    Watching Kill Bill Two last night I was startled to hear a single loud bleep l6.59minutes into the film. Has any one else experienced this or do I have a faulty disc?

    Erm that would be when one of the characters says Uma Thurmans name in the film. Her name isn't revealed until (I think) the beginning of the second film.

    It's a running them throughout the film you never actually here her name. Sometimes it bleeps sometimes it goes quiet.

    Yeah, the name is bleeped out, but I never understood the logic of it. It's quite cool anyway.

    Really?? Is this a question??

    Its hidden so the character can be referred to as "the Bride". its a homage to old kung fu films, where people gaining revenge would hide their true identity until the end!

    Indeed we do. Thanks guys for the info. I just don't recall hearing any bleeps in vol 1. Maybe I just wasn't listening close enough!

    There's quite a few in the first one. More than the second one if memory serves me correct.

    It puzzled me at first til I realised it was another stroke of pure genius from Tarantino. My all time favorite film, I struggle to decide which volume is better! :thumbsup:

    I listened very carefully to vol 1 last night and did not hear a single bleep. Weird or what.

    Both Vivica A. Fox and Lucy Liu are bleeped out in the first one saying her name. In fact I think all the main Vipers characters say it at some point between the two films, and the first time it's not bleeped out is when Bill says it at the end of the second film, after she's got all her revenge and she's earned her name and it's been explained.

    Interesting. They must be very quiet then unlike the one I heard on vol 2 which was very audible.

    They're quite obvious to be honest.
