Kill Bill Vol. 2 might one day rise higher on the list of the best films made by the duo of Quentin Tarantino and Lawrence Bender. Kill Bill Vol. 1, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs seem to possess a higher level of popularity among fans. The dialogue-heavy nature of Kill Bill Vol. 2 somewhat harms the film when comparing to other projects in the duo’s combined resume. Lawrence Bender also had a hand in making the Academy Award-winning An Inconvenient Truth. Bender also produced quite a number of solid television projects. When a producer’s career biography features so many different award winners and fan favorites, excellent minor works fade somewhat into the background.
To call Kill Bill Vol. 2 a minor film, however, would be an unfair assessment. The attraction to this second part in the Kill Bill series is the character development. In the first part, audiences are introduced to The Bride and her mission. The action-heavy nature of the first film leads fans to follow her down a path of revenge. That path of revenge continues in the second film, but some of the action shifts to the backstory of how The Bride became a martial arts expert and trained assassin.
The training sequences in which The Bride bonds with the legendary martial arts master Pai Mei adds further depth to the character. Audiences gain more sympathy for her plight after seeing the more vulnerable and human side of The Bride. Had the film not contained the training sequence and focused on more action, Kill Bill Vol. 2 could have come off as a weak follow-up to the first entry.
The revelation of the full relationship between The Bride and Bill goes beyond a confrontation and clash. This adds to the drama necessary to make thefinal confrontation meaningful.
The right talent behind the camera factors quite a bit into whether a film rises to the level of art. Lawrence Bender can point to Oscar, BAFTA, and Film Independent Spirit award wins and nominations as proof of his talent. Such artistic talent allowed Lawrence Bender to work with Tarantino to effectively develop outstanding films such as Kill Bill Vol. 2.
One of the most eagerly anticipated scripted reality shows of recent years, “Queens Of Drama” brings together some of the best known faces from the world of daytime soap operas in a bid to relaunch this form of entertainment. “Queens Of Drama” includes a cast made up of actresses known for creating many of the best loved and most hated characters ever to appear in the U.S. soap opera genre. One of the major stars of this reality show is Donna Mills, who creates a fictional persona for herself as the leader of the newly created production company.
Crystal Hunt provides a good example of the high standard of the stars appearing in the show, particularly as she played one of the most iconic roles in the recent years of the soap opera genre. Hunt had already found fame as a star of “Guiding Light” when she switched to “One Life To Live” with the character of Stacy Morasco, an exotic dancer who took one of the most entertaining character arcs of recent memory. On “Queens Of Drama” Metacritic reviewers say that Crystal Hunt plays a version of herself that is partially based upon the characters she played in soap operas and her own public image.
There is more to the life and work of Crystal Hunt than simply her persona as a soap opera actress. Instead, Hunt has looked to embark on a career that has switched focus to the big screen with roles in movies including “Magic Mike XXL”, and a producer credit on the movie “Talbot County”. Her smart business sense has also led Crystal Hunt away from her acting career to a new role as a business executive for her own pet boutique in Florida.
Crystal Hunt will come face to face with some of the most iconic stars of the soap opera genre in her new role on “Queens Of Drama”. As the actors look to develop their own soap opera they will draw assistance and inspiration from iconic figures like former “Dynasty” star Joan Collins.
