Dream's Favorite Movies
Loved it. One of my new faves. Don't know how this one slipped passed me when it was at theaters. If you saw this and liked it check out the +300 page graphic novel, also written by Richard Kelly. It covers chapters 1-3, and explains a lot for those who had trouble understanding what was going on. I didn't.The movie is chapters 4-6. I see this movie as a tribute to three of my favorite directors: David Lynch, Terry Gilliam, and Alex Cox.
Planet Terror is bloody as any movie I can recall and it is very funny too. I think it's the best I have seen from Robert Rodriguez so far, and I have seen everything he has done, with the exception of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. This film is up there with Sin City.
Deathproof starts off just a little slow and it's a bit dialogue heavy but I have come to expect that from Quentin Tarantino. Once it gets going though, there is no slowing down. Very funny also.
The fake trailers for non-existent movies were also entertaining. Maybe they will actually make films out of these someday. I would love to see "Machete". "Thanksgiving" looks thouroughly disgusting and worth watching if it was ever made into a real flick. "Don't" was just a funny trailer, and "Werewolf Women of the SS" would be fun to see too.
GRINDHOUSE was an instant classic. Great from beginning to end. I really feel I got my moneys worth.
