This movie guide lists a wide range of movies that have inspired Kill Bill (both Volumes). This list provides cover/poster images, links to buy them and the information on how they influenced Kill Bill or how those movies are somehow linked to it. These movies are not ordered in any way.
Kill Bill has often been described as a movie-geek's movie. A movie for people who know all the genres and the films that are referenced to in Kill Bill. A movie for people who'll shout out in excitement "Ah, that's from Leone, did you see that?" when they see it. Of course Kill Bill is entertaining for everybody. But you get the movie-encyclopedic kick out of it if you know what's behind Kill Bill. Me and the community have done research and what follows is a comprehensive list (to be extended) of movies that somewhat inspired Kill Bill or are referenced in or where ideas came from. Kill Bill was inspired by a lot of different genres, and so is the list a very mixted list of different films. (Not all movies listed here are 'officially' movies that inspired Kill Bill. Movies that are somehow similar or might have a connection to Kill Bill are also listed. Most of these movies are community input)
