"Grindhouse": 10 out of 10. Made out of win.

Postby Belial » Sun Apr 08, 2007 9:20 am UTC

Seriously. See this movie(s). It is made of pure awesome. I will elaborate on this further sometime when I am not up at 5 in the morning after an entire day of wandering around DC.

But trust me.


Seriously.

"Grindhouse" is an excercise in total schlock, completely unbelievable plotlines, awful acting, and nonsensical action sequences. Which is the point. 10 out of 10!

Dammit, school, getting in the way of seeing movies. Again.

So, uh, in terms of gore and sex to screen time, is it greater than, less than, or equal to it's closest living relatives, Sin City and Kill Bill?

Deathproof started out kind of slow, but other than that, Grindhouse was Pure, unadulterated Awesomesauce.

grindhouse was indeed friggin awesome...

machete would be a sweet movie..

or werewolf women of the ss.. with a role nicholas cage would be awesome in!

planet terror was better than deathproof, but i liked deathproof a lot more than some of the other people who saw it did... i think tarantino just likes to film people having conversations in cars.. (firefox spellchecks tarantino into a lot of forms of "quarantine")

bruce willis looked like a pimp, even though his role was just some cameo type...

so, raise your hand if half the theater left after the first movie not knowing there would be another one coming up...

Nope, the people in my theater stuck around.

It was pretty awesome, though... we'd all laugh at cheer at the same inappropriate times.

I definitely liked Planet Terror more than Deathproof. I didn't so much mind the conversation in Deathproof, either, as a lot of the conversations in Tarantino movies rock (see Pulp Fiction). I think it was just a matter of it coming right after a Planet Terror, which was very fast-paced. I think if the movies had been shown the other way around, it would have flowed better.

I honestly liked deathproof more than planet terror. The ending was way, way more satisfying. And the conversations were ace.

Also, Machete *is* being made.

Machete gets all the women.

MACHETE!


Oh man, Grindhouse is definitely one of the best movies of all time. The timing of the "missing reels" and the subsequent dialog (that makes you feel like you missed a very important scene) is impeccable. The way Planet Terror satirizes and makes fun of the zombie/shoot-'em-up genre while actually being an amazing film in that category is just incredible.

During the entire second half of Death Proof, I was screaming to myself, "Just slow down already!". Anyone else?

You know, they could just keep this going. Make another set based on the trailers, rinse and repeat :P

I vote Machete and Werewolf Women of the SS

Umm...I'm still not kidding.

Machete is being made. Rodriguez is going to do it.

If they were going to double up with a second movie, though, I would vote "Don't" before "Werewolf Women" or "Thanksgiving", but that may be because I *hate* Rob Zombie and Eli Roth as directors.

Edit: Heheh. From the IMDB boards "If you're thinking of pairing Machete with another movie, Don't!"

I really, really, really need to drag myself out of the house to go see this. You guys are making me jealous.

I'm a little bummed I missed out on the opening night crowd though. These kinds of movies are usually more fun to watch in a theater full of fanboys. That way I don't get judged for finding gratuitous violence so hilarious.

FUCK this is an awesome movie. It is pure liquid awesome mainlined directly into your fucking heart. It is impossible for me to talk about this movie without using fucking profanities.

Scantily clad women, mysterious dark hero, Rose McGowan, zombies, gore, Texas BBQ, ridiculous explosions for no reason, awesome zombie shooting, scantily clad women. Slap my arm, tie me off, hook up the juice, baby.

You cannot watch this movie without loudly yelling "YES!" and pumping your fist. It is funny, and violent, and sexy, and scary. A-fucking-plus.

Robert Rodriguez is my new favourite movie director, and since I didn't really have a favourite movie director before, he basically has always been my favourite movie director, I just didn't know it. This movie makes 300 look like Legally Blonde. Planet Terror was the greatest action movie I have ever seen. To give you an example of why this is such a great movie, at the beginning there are two very-similar-looking blonde strippers. They're making out. BECAUSE HOW COULD THEY NOT BE MAKING OUT? IT DID NOT EVEN FUCKING OCCUR TO ROBERT RODRIGUEZ NOT TO HAVE THEM MAKING OUT. Then theres Rose McGowan's assault rifle/rocket launcher LEG. The only way this movie could have been better is if they had actual strippers in the movie theater having a knife fight between the shows.

Planet Terror got really ridiculous at the end, but it was pretty funny. They just kept getting crazier.

Death Proof was a very different movie, so it was a bit of a come down after Planet Terror, but it was still pretty good. Maaaaybe coulda been a little shorter, but I dunno.

I am in love with the Kiwi chick. SO cool.

Please tell me that the "missing reels" exist somewhere. Please? Please?

This movie is so ri-fucking-diculous. It is Off. The. Fucking. Hook. Wow.

Machete is a must-see for me too.

Word. What's funny was that she was playing herself. Zoe Bell was the stuntwoman for Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, as well as Xena, and several other roles. And she's a friend of Tarantino's, so he just got her to appear as...herself.

God I love Tarantino...even if he *is* a horrible-looking troll that's excruciating to listen to, he's still an amazing human being.

Me and my girlfriend were talking about that, she was saying that she didn't really seem quite as conventionally attractive, or movie-star-ish, as the other chicks. With the piercings, and so on. And then we realized it was because she was an actual stuntwoman. Which is awesome.

ok, hold on.

i saw a commercial for this thing, a commercial which featured a lady using her machine gun leg to jump around (a'la quake's rocket jump) and shoot zombies, or something.

a lady with a machine gun for a leg.

so, i gave the tv a weird look and never thought about it again. it's pretty startling to hear that this movie could not only be any good, but great. what the hell?

If you saw a girl with a machine gun for a leg killing zombies, and you didn't think "THAT'S AWESOME" then this movie is not for you.

Stick to the romantic comedies. Maybe rent The English Patient again.

j/k :D

Oh My Fucking God! (Capitalization for emphasis)

I don't like to swear, but fuck me sideways, that was the most awesome movie I've ever seen! I could marry Tarantino!

I'm prolly gonna download it so I can hook it up to a projector and have a movie-night at home. As this movie is totally unknown in Norway, this will be totally awesome! Oh, and I even know this chick I really like that has a thing for Tarantino movies...

I'm so happy right now...

i felt like i was the only one laughing when after the "missing reel" part in planet terror the female cop had her pant legs torn off and her shirt all tied up by her breasts looking all hot... maybe im the only one who realized it was a spoof?

I think the female deputy was my favourite, she kicks ass.

And her shirt is cut off so high you can see her bra. Damn.
