The Net

Not a bad action flick for its time.

Also rewatched High Fidelity for the umpteenth time. Only thing decent on cable at the time. I appreciate different things every time. This time I grooved on Jack Black's performance. Very funny.

This post has been brought to you by the word "time."

My friends and I wanted to watch a movie, one wanted to watch Magnolia but blockbuster didn't have it (wtf?) so I made them watch Harold and Maude, one of my favorite movies, and they loved it. They were a little wary of the old vaginas though.

Damn, everybody bashes this movie. I love it. I've watched it so many times. I hated the Rodriguez one, though. Which everyone seems to like.

I like em both, but I prefer the Rodriguez one.

I wish he would make 'Machete!' - the film in the fake trailer.

I wish Eli Roth would really make Thanksgiving!!! I loved the nod to The Majorettes (the trampoline part).

The thing I hated about "Grindhouse" was they promised a hard R, with blood, sex, and all that good stuff, and then they edited out the sex. Like in "Planet Terror", I know Rose Mcgowan has done her share of sex and nudity in other films but damn I bummed when they cut the sex scene short, and it was cool seeing Rico from Six Feet Under kicking ass. I really liked "Death Proof" as well, lots of dialogue, kind of goes with the terrority with Tarantino.

I heard he is supposed to be making it. No clue if it's true though.

Yeah, Death Proof is a -10/10.

Probably the worst film I've ever seen. Down there with Gangs of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, Death Racers, Ankle Biters, Room 666, and the Matrix Revolutions, etc...

For the record, I wasn't a huge fan of Rodriguez's either. It was entertaining, though -- something Death Proof is not in the least. There's just absolutely nothing to like in Death Proof.


The only thing I liked about grindhouse were the fake trailers.

Grindhouse was exactly what I expected. Rodriguez didn't pull out the stops and Tarantino had a good laugh. Who watches a Tarantino movie without expecting endless petty dialogue? The ending to Death Proof was fucking ballsy, though.

I at least expect for the dialog to be entertaining or have some kind of point. I've tried to appreciate the movie on many different levels; as an anti-film, as some kind of experimental piece, etc. Really, whatever angle you look at it from, it's an embarassment to film.

The dialogue not having a point Was the point. I thought the dialogue was so spot-on as a 70's exploitation film. I mean, I'm sure you've seen tons of the real ones, and often that's what the dialogue was... it was just something pointless to kill time between the violence and nudity.

That's what Death Proof was completely. It was an 80 minute device that was designed around a (couple of) great violent scenes. In that regard, I think the movie was incredible because it accomplished that perfectly.

Also, on a side note, the music kicked ass (although the soundtrack was a bit too good for a grindhouse flick in reality, though not necessarily by miles-- remember that Sun Ra was sang in BASKET CASE).

PLANET TERROR on the other hand was in fact what I'd consider too obvious. It didn't show the same enthusiasm for the sub-genres they were intending to homage that DEATH PROOF did.

I got the "point" of the film, but endless boring talking about nothing and a girl riding on a car was not entertaining. And, really, that's what a film like that should be about: entertainment. And yeah Planet Terror was just some new age horror film with a few clever touches. It was pretty lame... though again had a few entertaining parts.

The whole grindhouse project in general sucked, and I'm glad it failed big time... but the trailers for Don't and Thanksgiving were great. That little 1 minute 30 seconds of trailer is Eli Roth's best work ever!

Glad you mentioned Basket Case by the way. Love those films... love Brain Damage and Frankenhooker. Now THOSE are great movies.
