Good flicks but planet terror left me asking, that was that?

I absolutely adore both of these films. It's really an experience you needed in the theater, seeing the films back to back with ALL the trailers spliced in a la 70's Grindhouse double features at the drive-in or seedy theaters. However, they edited both flicks a lot for time for the theatrical release and the dvd versions (esp of Death Proof) are waaaaay better. Planet Terror is entertaining for very obvious reasons (zombies, hot chicks with guns, El Wray is the sexiest wrecker driver EVER, an incredible soundtrack written by the director) but Death Proof is a flick you really need a quirky sense of humor, appreciation of detail and (dare I say it) an appreciation/understanding of strong,real women to appreciate. A lot of guys (and some women) delude themselves into thinking women aren't tough and don't swear or talk about sex. The girls in this flick, especially the second group, reminded me so much of me and my girls it was disturbing. A lot of people don't get this flick at all, but the ones who do will tell you they watch it significantly more than Planet Terror because it has a lot more depth.

Planet Terror embraces the Grindhouse spirit completely

I'm not usually a fan of zombie movies, but this was the best one I have ever seen. the other movie that went along with this I never saw. but rememeber even if it was cheesy, its supposed to be that way. thats what a grindhouse movie is! check it out on wikipedia!

Rodriguez movie was as suspected, it was great, but nothing that original. The idea was good, but it just didn't keep me as entertained as Taratino's movie. That car chase scene was intense, I loved it!! Then again, I'm a car girl

The fake trailers were soo funny. Werewolf Women of the S.S, the Nicolas Cage cameo as the Chinaman was sooo random.
Friday April 20, 2007 - 7:06 PM
Planet Terror, ftw.

Completely over the top. I cant remember the name of the Rodriguez one, but it as reallllllly funny. So many unnecessary explosions. So many campy cleavage and booty shots. And the guy that collects testicles? Classic.

DEATH PROOF SUCKED HARD
Friday April 20, 2007 - 12:56 PM
fucking best movie of the year no questions asked tits,blood,guts zombies,killing,car chases and a chick with a gun for a leg u cant beat that shit.
Friday April 20, 2007 - 10:44 AM
All i can say is "omg, chick with a gun for a leg!"
Friday April 20, 2007 - 6:18 AM
I loved everything about it.
Tuesday April 17, 2007 - 10:00 PM
TOO AMAZING FOR WORDS.
Tuesday April 17, 2007 - 6:36 PM
Probably the best movie(s) ive seen this year..
Tuesday April 17, 2007 - 6:01 PM
DEATH PROOF IS AMAZING
Tuesday April 17, 2007 - 4:26 PM
Both movies were amazing for two completely different reasons.
Tuesday April 17, 2007 - 9:44 AM
I got into this movie for free which was nice, also stoned out of my mind. I loved the Rodriguez film, gun as leg? nice. loved the "sneak previews" between. I did not get to stay for the whole Tarantino movie, but I saw most of it. Not as exiding as I hoped but I could still feel it was Quentin Tarantino. All in all it was a good night spent.
Monday April 16, 2007 - 10:36 PM
Fuck it, loved both. Kept me interested and laughing as well.
Monday April 16, 2007 - 9:42 PM
Definatly one for my top ten...........although I agree with the Bliz on the second ones ending, Tarentino shouldve killed em all in a bloodbath .....that wouldve been ALOT more true to the movies name, and theme..........I recommend this movie to neone who enjoys well thought out killing! lol
Monday April 16, 2007 - 9:23 PM
Both were great- Obviously cheezy, but still amazing.
Monday April 16, 2007 - 6:54 PM
I loved it. Saw it opening day. Rock on. Second part was kinda lame but I took it in stride! Hazaas to old school style film making.
Monday April 16, 2007 - 4:17 PM
Best 2 movies I have seen so far this year. I enjoyed Death Proof a little more and the trailers were hilarious! Overall....these 2 movies are pure entertainment and are well worth your money on a Friday or Saturday night out.

It sucks that it has to be reviewed as one because Planet Terror was wikked whereas Death Proof was pretty lame.
Monday April 16, 2007 - 6:53 AM
I love Quentin but i think these movies were some what weak. i was disappointed and shocked at that. don't get me wrong i laughed my ass off but for his name, it will never be among those of pulp fiction or jackie brown
Monday April 16, 2007 - 12:10 AM
Well, this review needs to be very divided.
Friday April 13, 2007 - 10:28 AM
This was the best movie i think i have seen, especially at the end with the car chasing the girls and then they go maniac on the guy an beat his ass with a steel polem LMAO, it was so great
Friday April 13, 2007 - 2:00 AM
planet terror was some fun zombie action but nothing special. death proof is the real winner; watching it, you feel like you can suddenly see and understand everything in the universe. <<< yes i just compared watching a tarantino movie to being omnipotent. wut?
Thursday April 12, 2007 - 6:00 PM
i laughed through the entire 3 hours 10 minutes. classic quinten and rodriguez.
