All the dialogue in both parts of the film is almost all necessary if not all interesting. In the first half Quentin uses the extended intro to build the suspence for the incredibly awesome payoff in the middle of the film. Then the second time he uses the dialog and lengthy build-up to strengthen his characters so that you're literally cheering for them by the end of the film, as well as sets things up perfectly for the jaw-dropping car chase at the end. And if nothing else, Death Proof is a perfect Grindhouse film. If it had too much action it wouldn't have felt quite as authentic.
That's why Tarantino is probably one of the most talented writer/directors today, he knows how to use scenes with heavy dialogue and still keep things as tense and interesting as an action scene.

Very few other writer/directors can do this, I can only think of Christopher Nolan right now.

I thought you said 300 was the best movie of the year?



I give grindhouse about a 6.5/10

I remember watching El Mariachi (1992)

that was very low budget
but a great film from Robert Rodriguez

after that success
his work been uneven for me

Sin City was great

I enjoyed Deathproof
more than Planet Terror
and I love Rose McGowan

Grindhouse: 7.5/10

What an adventure, gang! Though I've never been a big fan of zombie movies, I'd have to say I enjoyed Rodriguez's Planet Terror more out of the two. But at the same time, both films were incredibly fun. They each had the perfect balance of wit, dark humor and, of course, lots of gore.

Planet Terror was much more action-packed and had more crazy storylines crammed in. They don't make the scenes boring or the storyline complicated but rather the character interactions and the resulting dialogue is what makes this film better than Death Proof. Of course, you can't go wrong with all the explosions and the machine gun leg. 8/10

What I loved most about Death Proof is all the talking that goes on. Sure, people are expecting much more blood and sex (duh) but I think it's the long, witty conversations between The Girls that makes it... awesome. Really, though, you can place The Girls in any type of situation regardless of what sadistic fate awaits them and you'll have the same end result. I think it's because of how irrelevent the car chasing scenes were to the rest of the movie that makes this one suffer a little. It almost seemed like two different films (think: From Dusk Til Dawn). 7/10


CLIFF NOTES: go see it- it's a lot of fun.


PS: Get a SMALL drink from the concession stand. Thanks for the peepee jokes, Quentin!

The Heart of the Game

8/10

You know, I don't care one whit about basketball, but this documentary about Seattle's Roosevelt Rough Riders high school girls' team was really engaging.

The last fifteen minutes of the film were dedicated to the final Big Game, and I was pretty damned into it, not knowing how it would come out (since I never pay attention to basketball).

I realize that I am a little late to this film, but I recently saw The Departed, which I found to be quite strong. I have never been a fan of gratuitous violence unless it has some degree of social or philosophical commentary behind it, which this film really did not. Nonetheless, the performances were stellar (especially from DiCaprio), and it kept me guessing until the very end. I'm not really sure if it deserved to win best picture, but it was entertaining nonetheless.

7/10

Go see it!!

I just returned from seeing it. So funny. It's stupid-funny, but also charming, if that makes any sense. Will Ferrell's character really reminds me of Jim Morrison on skates. I now have a mini-crush on the 'Katie' character...I hear she's on "The Office," but I've never seen that show. This might have to change

Blades of Glory 5.9

Underworld : Evolution

I'm not a fan of vamp/werewolf stories, especially since they're so bloody.. but the times where I didn't have my eyes clenched tight were pretty good. Decent storyline too.

7/10

Hollywoodland

7/10

I wanted to see this just because I thought I should, and I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought I would.

Normally, Ben Affleck makes me want to smack his smug mug, but he was very good in this.

American Beauty - 10/10

I can't believe it took me so long to watch this film. I'm not going to write much because I just finished watching it, and quite frankly I'm still in shock. I don't believe I have ever seen a more perfect or beautiful film in my entire life. On a technical level it is a cinematic masterpiece, and on a residual level I've never seen a more touching exposure of the human spirit.

Now, back away and give me some time to breath.

Not really. I mean, by the time they revealed who did it, I really had no idea who it actaully would be, as I had suspected almost everyone and then changed my mind, then went back and forth, etc. So it wasn't really shocking, but it was a bit surprising nontheless.
