I was going through Uma Thurman’s awards and nominations today on IMDB and I saw that BAFTA nominated her for Vol. 1 but the BFCAs nomintated her for Vol. 2. This made me wonder what performance most people prefer. Personally, I think that Vol. 1 is the better film but Thurman gives the better performance in Vol. 2.
You should change the title of your poll, it suggests that there are more options.
Of those two I don´t really have a preference (both are amazing and underrated), but volume two centers more on developing her character than the action. We can explore her life before the murder attempt, her relationship with Bill before and the dynamics once she finds him, we see her training scenes with Hanzo, a different side of her once she finds out she has a daughter, etc. There is much more for her to play in volume two, so probably that one.
My favorite perf from Uma is in Henry and June. What an entrance. A close second is in Pulp Fiction. Of the two above, she’s great in both. Tie, although, she has somewhat more to do in 2.
