While I preferred the back-to-back presentation of "Grindhouse" (complete with the made-up trailers) Robert Rodriguez's highly entertaining homage to B-movies, exploitation films, horror-zombie movies and 'grindhouse" can stand on its own. Arguably more fun than Tarantino's "Death Proof".      The film that gave "Machete" the opening to become a full-feature film! 4 Out of 5 Stars

Here is another entry into the spoof the Night of the Living Dead series. This one is highly entertaining. It is made like it is being shown in a cheap movie theater in the 70's with breaks in the film and coming attractions to other movies (they show a spoof called Machete). Rose McGowan alone makes this movie as she is one of the sexiest looking stars in movies. During the movie she loses a leg but her boyfriend later replaces it with a machine gun for which she then starts mowing down the zombies. …

It's "Night of the Living Dead" meets "Showgirls" meets "Smokey and the Bandit"...!    When toxic biochemicals are released into the Earth's atmosphere, transforming innocent bystanders into flesh-guzzling zombies, mankind's only hope lies with former go-go dancer Cherry (Rose McGowan), who wears a machine-gun in place of an amputated leg...one of her many "useless talents"...    That's the bizarre plot of PLANET TERROR, writer/director Robert Rodriguez's …

Grindhouse was originally released in theatres as a nostalgic look at the matinĂ©e style movies of the Grindhouse theatres. These movie theatres would usually display 1, 2 or even 3 movies in a row. The movies were relatively low budget in exchange for high levels of advertising. Both Tarrantino and Rodriguez have spoken of their love for the Grindhouse theatres as kids. They both set about to make two separate movies that would be shown in succession, but in between would feature commercials for …

Gore, girls, guns, zombifying gases and guts-- I guess that's all it takes to make a moderately entertaining and occasionally visually stunning flick. Of course, it won't do much for your mind -- unlike some grindhouse flicks that play with intriguing subtexts underneath all of the shock-inducing and exploitation schlock -- Robert Rodriguez just wants to ramp up the insanity step by step, piling up absurd but effective and increasingly over the top gory elements until, after the climax, it all ends …

This movie is great and the ones that watch it with me had a blast. Rodriguez had already indulged himself to his heart's content in From Dusk Till Dawn (Dimension Collector's Series) which was also about a group of people fighting off warring vampires in a night club from, as the name indicates, from dusk till dawn, which makes "Planet Terror" an encore exercise of pretty much similar plot, similar format and similar execution. As his other movies like El Mariachi (Special Edition) and Desperado …
