My Thoughts On GRINDHOUSE

So...

My girlfriend and I saw GRINDHOUSE yesterday afternoon, and I personally thought it was pretty good as a whole.

Out of the two movies, Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror was the weaker of the two movies. I am a fan of Robert's work, but in my opinion it was his weakest work to date. It seemed to drag in parts and Freddy Rodriguez was not a strong enough lead character, in my opinion.

Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof was the stronger of the two flicks. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time, and I was interested the whole time...which doesn't happen often. I don't want to give anything away, because it was so bad ass. The fictional trailers inside the movie were awesome as well.

So all in all, out of 4 stars I give it a 3 1/2. Three for Death Proof & those trailers, and the half for Planet Terror.

i'm a monster
i'm a maven
i know this world is changin'
never gave in
never gave up
i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

I want to see but I dont have time. From the 2 flicks I think Death Proof looks better.
