The following are screencaps from Kill Bill Volume 1 on Blu-ray. To sum it up, the picture looks damn nice. Kill Bill Volume 1 is an MPEG-4 AVC transfer, and the average bitrate is just a hair over 30Mbps. The file size of the movie alone is around 31GB, which is massive, but an MPEG-4 requires such a size to look its best. And it certainly does. Yellows pop, reds explode, and greens thrive on an HDTV screen. Kill Bill Volume 1 deals with a lot of primary colors, and this is where high-definition can handle the extremes of the color spectrum. You just can't see these colors on a typical non-HD display.

Below you'll see a wide spectrum of the color green. This just can't be seen on a typical CRT television.

This particular shot grabbed my attention. Notice the red gradient on the airline ticket. And if you're observant, you might even notice what BLEEP Kiddo's first name is.

What's really amazing in this scene, is the amount of yellow coming through, even though the scene is in rather limited lighting being reflected by the surrounding lights on the street. Tarantino did a fine job here, making sure there wasn't too much artificial lighting. In fact, there might be none at all, unless a rather thick diffuser with a cover was used.

Now, let's take a look at some flesh tone shots. Immediately below, we see a rather stunning Uma Thurman. Flesh tones are basically perfect.

Lucy Liu is O-Ren Ishii, and we see a very nice shot of her. Her flesh tone is consistently accurate and in HD, the lighting is perfect.

Well, there you have it. These are just a few shots I grabbed from Kill Bill Volume 1, but they represent the excellent images which are consistent throughout the entire movie. High-definition not only brings out the colors, but keeps the large amount of gradient colors intact and pleasant.
