Grindhouse is the Snakes On A Plane of 2007, except 500 times better.
Grindhouse, how I love thee, let me count the ways:
Crazy, hilarious, and all around awesome.
Loved Naveen Andrews' character and his testicle collection. He started picking them up and putting them in his pockets when the shooting broke out! He got a great death, too. One of the best head explosion effects that I've ever seen.
"The Babysitter Twins" were some of the best characters in the movie.
I would be highly surprised if I was the only person who said "Fergalicious!" when Fergie started getting eaten by the zombies. When they showed that her brain was missing, my cousin leaned over and said "Fergie has no brain, how surprising."
Speaking of that, zombies that actually eat brains!!! And do a lot of other incredibly disgusting things also! Tarantino and Willis' characters turning zombie was absolutely sick. Tarantino had one of the best death scenes in the movie, though. Table leg through the ****ing eye.
I loved the "REEL MISSING" bit where apparently a ton of interesting things happen that we never see. "I had no idea you were ... Elray
The machine gun leg lived up to the hype. Totally.
It was slow to start, but I still loved every part of it.
The dialogue was classic Tarantino and therefore excellent.
I liked the original title flashing on screen before being replaced by DEATH PROOF and the random cameo by Eli Roth.
I was not expecting the first group of girls to get killed so quickly, but the surprise of it was great.
Kurt Russel was awesome as expected.
The later parts of the movie were even better. Some of the best car chases I've ever seen. After the first scene, when Zoe picked up the rod and got back in the car so they could chase after Stuntman Mike, all I could think was "He just ****ed with the wrong *****es".
From Mike screaming because of his gunshot wound on out, everyone in the audience was just laughing. They just completely shatter your badass image of the character. Kim bumping the car and screaming at him was great. "I ain't gonna let you get away,...before I tap that *** one more time."
Beating the crap out of him after they crashed his car...The audience was practically cheering at that point. What an unbelievably great way to end a movie.
AND THE TRAILERS...
Were possibly the best part of the whole thing.
The cameo by Cheech Marin as the priest practically made "Machete" for me. So awesome.
The little note at the beginning of "Warewolf Women of the S.S." trying to give it some historical context was hilarious, as was
"THIS IS MY MECCA!!!"
"DON'T!" was classic, especially the appearance by Nick Frost. The announcer had me in stitches. "DON'T
LOOK UP, DON'T
LOOK DOWN, DON'T
And "Thanksgiving" illicited the most horrified reaction I've ever seen out of an audience. The knife in the trampoline, the "turkey". I loved all the randomly severed head and the "It's blood." line.
So, in case you can't tell, I loved it
. This was one of the most supremely entertaining movies in years.
This is what it means to go to the theater and get your money's worth.
