Macbeth by Tarantino?

Saw a thing called ”Macbeth/Kill Bill Shakespeare” last night. I was hoping for a rather more subtle blend, not just some Tarantino scenes transposed crudely into an otherwise rather bland Macbeth. Some of it worked well; the Jules/Vincent speech about hash bars and the Royale with Cheese was translated into pretty good Elizabethan iambic pentameter and was genuinely very funny. But after that, it rapidly became gratuitous, and the effect was similar to trying to watch either Macbeth or Tarantino on TV with an itchy remote control finger. Oh well.
