This has got to be the greatest movie theater experience of my short life. Seeing Grindhouse was like losing your virginity in my eyes. Oh the horror was great and the gore was fantastic and the experience was priceless. I feel bad for people who were unable to experience this in theaters on the big screen. Not only were both movies, Planet Terror by Robert Rodriguez and Death Proof by Quentin Tarantino, amazing and awesome and so much fun you can't believe but the faux trailers and the little advertisements were fucking funny as hell and it was just everything I could ever want from a movie. And it was really long so you got your money's worth!
Planet Terror is about a biochemical being released into the air and turning people into zombies and you got El Ray, played by Freddy Rodriguez, kicking ass and trying to save Cherry his ex but soon to be back together girlfriend, played by Rose McGowan. And in the mix they get a group together and other stories all combine into one and it turns into a very very gory ride. It is extremely fun and great, it also stars Bruce Willis and Josh Brolin and Tom Savini among others. This one was the better of the two films, this one is a great zombie movie.
Death Proof is a car chase movie with great, real, stunts and has an almost all female cast to it. Not literally an all female cast but once you see it you will understand. Quentin Tarantino was trying to re-create or bring back the old car chase movies and he does give it that old feeling to it that was kewl. After the opening scene, which is pretty gory and awesome, there is all talking until the last 15 min or so, besides all the talking, which I didn't care for, there are some awesome scenes to this movie and it is worth checking out. This one was no where near as good as Planet Terror.
Now on to the faux trailers
Machete is the first, it comes on before Planet Terror and it is directed by Robert Rodriguez. He even thought of making it into a real movie which would be kewl. Anyways this is about a gardner or something that is hired to kill but is double crossed and goes out for revenge. This is real funny in its own way and offers some funny lines like, "They just fucked with the wrong mexican", which makes me laugh every time lol.
Werewolf Women of the S.S. is the faux trailer directed by Rob Zombie, so of course it has Sheri Moon Zombie in it but it also has Bill Moseley and Nicolas Cage as Fu Manchu which is really funny lol. I don't understand this one as much because I havn't seen any of the Ilsa movies or really any nazi horror movies so I can't say much about this. But the name I do get and it seems like one of those nazi movies made back then.
Don't is the trailer done by Edgar Wright who directed Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. This one is kind of a spoof on all the movies from the 70's and 80's with the word Don't in the title. Don't go in the woods, Don't look in the basement, etc. etc. And they say alot of these in the movie. This movie really does look old and that it was made in the 70's. Wright did a great job in giving it a very old feel to it, if I just saw this trailer on YouTube and didn't know it was from Grindhouse I would have thought it was made in the 70's. And it has Nick Frost in it, he played Ed from Shaun of the Dead, eating a toy baby lol.
The last faux trailer is probably my favorite one, it is Thanksgiving and it was directed by Eli Roth. This again had a good old feel to it but not as well done as Don't did it. But this one was really funny and doesn't show the money shot from this girl on a trampoline, which ends hilariously with a knife in the....well you know. This one is the funniest, to me, and is also the goriest and it was just awesome. Check this one and all these out on YouTube or something if you havn't seen them.
All in all as I said this was a great theater experience and I feel bad if you missed it. This was just great great fun and amazing to experience. a perfect 10/10!!!! Easily!
