Death Proof and the Grindhouse Double-Feature are of course Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez's tribute to the junk films that used to be played in exploitation theaters through the 60s and 70s. For once Tarantino actually decides that he's going to stick to one cinematic style from beginning to end of the film. Tarantino decides that with Death Proof he will PERFECTLY imitate the feel of these trash movies. Boy does Tarantino succeed at doing just that. In fact he does it so well that it becomes …

Tarentino is no doubt in many lists of favorite Writer/Directors but with Grindhouse, he and Rodriguez have bought something old but new to the table. Tarentino's film Death Proof to me was just too good to pass up. I read the synopsis but I still for some reason just couldn't believe it. The film stars Kurt Russell among others but Russell is the most surprising character.     Russell plays Stuntman Mike, who is basically a psycho in disguise and it certainly is not a good one. …

I actually liked this wierd tale that is shot like a very cheap movie with intentional cuts and skips and grain in the film. Kurt Russell is a serial psycho that likes to murder women with his car. In the first portion of the film the director has a lot of interaction with a group of women that end up at a bar. Russell seems to have followed them to the bar. There they meet him and they know him only as Stuntman Man. He claims to have been a stuntman in many old tv shows and he drives a car that …

Going into a Quentin Tarantino movie, you know you have to expect carnage. In his latest picture, `Death Proof' I thought by mid-movie, I had entered into a misogynists' paradise. Not so. Although you'll understand my misconception. As most people have pointed out, this film is Tarantino's homage to B-movies. It even has moments with threads going down the movie or reel changes done like you are sitting at a local theater in the day when they didn't have multiplexes, and the technician showing the …

A tough-guy killer turns out not to be so tough when the tables are turned against him by some even tougher women. The whole idea of a grindhouse film is that it is supposed not to make a lot of sense as a story, except that the story serves as a justification for the guilty pleasure in the form of titillation, both violent and sexy. It is supposed to be a kind of throwaway effort, something that is thrown together as cheaply as possible as long as there are beautiful people and violent gimmicks …

This flick was pretty good. Quentin Tarantino could of written this story behind a paper coaster if he wanted to. This story of a stuntman and his fetish for auto-erotica seem just that, split as it is into two separate but corresponding stories. The first half sees four girls getting drunk and dirty at a filthy old bar in town, where they meet the sinister Stuntman Mike (Russell). The latter half sees Mike in pursuit of four new female targets, consisting of Abbie (Dawson), Lee (Mary-Elizabeth …
