I’m not lying when I say I had a terrible time watching “Death Proof” It was a tedious bore that only became mildly entertaining when we get to see Tarantino rip segments from other movies to make his good, but not at all impressive, car chase.
I understand you were wowed because we haven’t had a car chase in ages that didn’t involve CGI in some way but you can’t sit there and tell me this was a landmark.
The rest of GRINDHOUSE was solid. The Planet Terror flick was fun and the fake trailers were the best thing about the whole picture. But the last film was terrible.
I’m aware what they were going for, thank you, but that still doesn’t make “Death Proof” remarkable/entertaining to me.
Maybe you but I don’t make it my mission to hit the theatres every weekend (I can’t recall last time I went). I have way too much fun staying at home and watching movies I have in my collection that I haven’t touched yet.
