Are these new Blu's for the set...otherwise I will wait for the price drop! (I already have Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Inglorious on Blu)

Are we finally giving up on the Kill Bill 'Whole Bloody Affair' cut? I have still not seen Vol 1 or 2 as I was waiting for this cut!

Tarantino screened the whole bloody affair in on theatre (that he owns) for two weeks last year, he obviously still likes it and knows people want to see it, it's amazing that it hasn't been released yet. Maybe he's waiting until he gets around to making 3.

I'm not that fussed about The Whole Bloody Affair because I think it works great as two movies. I wish they'd bring us the Japanese cut of the film though, it's so much more satisfying....

It's never been released uncut in HD anywhere. Not even shown on TV uncut in HD anywhere, which makes me wonder if it will ever happen.

That MONDO artwork will be awesome if it's featured throughout.

I already have 6 of the films tho and don't want to part with the gasoline tin Reservoir Dogs, gonna make for an expensive double dip in what is becoming a release packed last quarter of the year.

I wants it tho, dammit.

I would think the main stumbling block in releasing it is the contracts between actors, and other people that worked on the film(s).

Their contract would say two films and not one, so to release it as one could just open a legal can of worms.

Yeah, me too. I don't even mind that it cuts to b/w. I think the first film is the best. The killing Bill bit at the end of the second film is a bit of a let down, I don't know what I was expecting, but it was more than we get. But a great double bill!
