I read somewhere that Machete was getting his own movie or something of the sort. about 2 months back.

Roth originaly intended to make Thanksgiving, but due to his commitment to Hostel 2 and the upcoming Stephen King movie "cell" (super cellphone zombies) he said it wouldn't happen for at least the next decade. When he was approached to make a trailer he jumped at it stating "all I have to do is shoot the best parts and none of the boring stuff"

Does anyone remember the new Stephen King movie starring John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, 1408?

The trailer before Grindhouse started scared the shit out of me. This is gonna be a good one.

Funny, but I still can't understand how this is happening so much. Are people really going in not knowing the "gimmick"? Who walks into the theater and randomly picks a movie that they know nothing about... especially now.

Anyway, I rate the concept and the total experience higher than the two movies themselves. Case of the sum being greater than the parts I guess. The trailers were great and I liked the restricted placards/cartoons (or whatever you call them). Those little touches added a lot because the movies were decent but not mind blowing. DP was uneven, but I think the problem was that the bar and diner dialogue was not up to par with the diner dialogue from Reservoir Dogs. If it had been, I don't think people would have minded as much.

Funniest moment: DP's missing reel... the whole theater groans in unison.

Newsflash - people are fucking stupid. People in groups, usually more so.
There is actually talk of splitting Grindhouse, adding the 'lost reels', and re-releasing the film as single features. The gimmick is being blamed for the poor box office. Personally, I think it has more to do with Easter weekend.

As for the films themselves, Planet Terror was perfect - a great film in the context and spirit of the project. The second half I honestly thought was the worst film I've ever watched. I came very close to walking out, and that's saying something - I'm a cheap bastard. Yeah, I get it - I get he was more or less making fun of himself and his habit heavy dialog but really, it was beyond masturbatory. I was beyond bored - he was entertaining himself and not his audience. It was akin to slamming on the breaks after a great one hour ride.

The only things I got out of this movie is that either Quentin Tarentino lost his touch with dialog or I have outgrown it and that Robert Rodriguez should only make children's movies from now on.

I mean all his movie need was that song that goes "CLICK CLICK BOOM"

I like how a movie that supposedly takes place in the Grindhouse era has SUV's in their car chases.

Well that was certainly the most retarded fun I've had in a while. My friends and I completely took over the front rows, with only five other people in the theatre.

Tarantino was pretty damned dedicated to the revenge flick formula. Unfortunately, revenge flicks like "Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" were pretty damned dull. Awesome stuntwork, though.

The movies weren't supposed to represent the grindhouse era, the actual presentation of the film was not the content itself.

Yup, the style was grind house. The setting was contemporary. (Remember in DP, they crashed through a Scary Movie 4/Wolf Creek double feature movie sign.)

Which is why I enjoyed the Rob Zombie's trailer so much.

They are all both homages and contemporary takes on a wicked awesome genre.

My favorite was "Don't". The others were a lot funnier, but they weren't nearly as period.

Really? I'd say thanksgiving for sure. Don't was really good too though and would probably be second.

Well, as far as humor goes, Thanksgiving all the way, but I got a real kick how "Don't" was exactly like all the schlock I saw as a kid. Especially the terrible, bloodless effects when the guy yanked out his eyes.

That's what I'm saying too. I guess I just saw more slasher movies than kinda supernatural horror movies as a kid.

The Thanksgiving trailer reminds me soooo much of Prom Night, from the disembodied voice to the dismemberment.

Are you effen CRAZY?? Who else can make 3 hour films and have to split them or double feature them?? Point is...3 hours of MINDLESS fun and cinematic bliss! Go see your Oscar nominated flicks, which can be very good, or be freakin entertained with crazy shit for a whole afternoon for the same price!! If you want to think, go to school or work. Just my opinion.

Death Proof was ruined with too much god damn talking. It's not even just the talking, but they were talking about nothing. And I wanted Death Proof to be better, desperately...

while i agree that there was way too much dialogue ( and not very much of it was interesting ) in death proof, i still think that the last half hour was amazing.

Just got back from seeing it for the first time and I loved it. The scene when the new Zealand girl was on the hood of the car was so intense!

This movie is so funny! I sorta wish it took place in the seventies though. Man, I love this.
