Just a quick post before I head out for coffee.
Last night my husband and I grabbed a quick dinner at Panera and went to see Grindhouse. Our reaction, in a word: AWESOME!
Both movies were equally good in different ways. The Robert Rodriguez movie "Planet Terror" was full of gross-out, pustulant zombie action and horror. Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" was a lot talkier, but it got down to the action eventually and it was worth the wait.
I will say that it's a little difficult to settle down to a sound, dreamless sleep after you see it. Maybe it would be best viewed at a matinee.
I know the word is that the movie is tanking at the box office, but that's a shame. Anybody who likes action movies - particularly of the "women kicking ass" variety will enjoy the double feature.
Have you seen it yet? If so, what did you think?
