Grindhouse

Talk about redefining "a night out at the movies." This thing is KILLER!

The first half is all fun and silliness and ultra-violent. It's also funny as hell. Then Quentin takes over and, man, he blows the concept of making fun of grindhouse movies because he actually makes a good movie! There is probably too much talking, but that's what he does best and there are some hysterical passages in there. But when the movie becomes a car chase (there are two or three, and they are all incredible), it really takes off. And it has one of the most satisfying endings of any action movie I've ever seen. I'm not kidding. Funny and satisfying as hell.

However, the best part may be the little trailers for movies that don't exist that come before ("Prevue Attractions") and in between the two movies. I want to see the new serial killer movie "Thanksgiving" soon!

I watched the mock trailer for Thanksgiving on youtube. Hilarious.

How fun would this be to watch at a drive-in theater? :-)
