                When the Bride flies to Japan over a cityscape that's obviously a model, it's a reference to the Kaiju movie "War of the Gargantuas", which is also the movie that made Brad Pitt want to be an actor.

                  How sure you are that 30-50% of the references are actually references instead of just a coincidence that basically can be seen in every other movie ever?

                    In the church scene, the deputy tells the sheriff that the name of the bride is "Arlene Machiavelli". This is a reference to Niccolo Machiavelli, who wrote about faking one's own death in his book, The Prince.

                          I mean, the intro is also Keith Mansfield "FanFare" (or Soul Thing), which was used in the intro of movies back in the 70-80s. Rocky Horror Picture Show used it, that I know for sure. So that's also a reference to other movies, not just Kung Fu films

                                      10:28 always reminded me of Scarface ending where Tony Montana takes a dive in The World is Yours fountain.

                                            When the Bride hacks Sofie's arm off & blood sprays everywhere, it's more of an homage to Dario Argento's Tenebre.

Whos played by Gordon Liu, super iconic Sho Brothers actor, especially in 36th chambers of shaolin. His whole fighting style and even the screams he makes when attacking is classic hong kong films.
