You will be blown away

I just got home after watching Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse. For those who haven't heard about the movie. It is twin movies films having Robert Rodriguiz's Planet terror and Quentin's Death Proof in one movie. And it lasts good three hours.
I have been a great fan of Quentin Tarantino's movies and Kill Bill vol.1 was one of his first movie to strike me. There was so much blood and mind blowing action that not for one second one could relax. His movie take you on a high journey and there are elements which will surprise you. Following the surprise element Grindhouse doesn't disappoint either.
The first movie, Planet Terror deals with zombie's and how a group of people try to escape from them in a small town in Texas. This movie has its wierd elements like one character likes to keep the balls ( literally human balls ) of the person he kills or the lead female character having a machine gun attached to her amputated leg. All this is crazy but still the movie entertains you and at times the movie even looks funny.
The second movie Death Proof, starts off with a slow note. With a lot of talking going around and very little action coming. However the last 45 minutes are unbelievable. One needs to see it to believe it. The dare devil stunts and the car chase sequence is just out of this world. One knows it is a movie but still they are so well executed that they look realistic and credit to Quentin for always giving something out of this world. I look forward for his future works.

PS: One needs to be in right state of mind to watch and enjoy these movies. If you don't like blood then this movie or for that matter any other Quentin works are not for you.


  • have you watched "Pulp-fiction"? If not then highly recommended... A classic from tarantino.. And a great soundtrack too..

  • oh yeah "Pulp fiction" is good. Soundtrack is also one of the major highlights of Quentin's work other than action, babes and blood, not necessarily in that order.
