News & Interviews for Grindhouse
Critic Reviews for Grindhouse
Grindhouse is both impressive and disappointing. From a technical and craft point of view it is first-rate; from its standing in the canon of the two directors, it is minor.
Not just a movie but an event in its own right, Grindhouse is simply unmissable in its complete form.
A paean to the exploitation films of the 70s, built more for titillation than story-telling, Grindhouse - especially the Rodriguez sequence - is nearly impossibly silly, not necessarily a bad thing, and is certainly not for everyone.
Grindhouse is a great experience, packed with fun, thrills, chills and gore galore.
Delivers all the trashy, seat-squirming, eye-covering moments your fiercely racing heart craves. Forget about "guilty pleasures." Call it a pleasure, and leave it at that.
Audience Reviews for Grindhouse
Quentin looks weird. Weirder.
Top 20 of all-time.
Loved the movie as a whole; the blend of Rodriguez and Tarantino go hand in hand with each other. It really doesn't seem like it's longer than 3 hours at all....it goes by in a flash. The acting was good, both plots were original, and the killing/blood scenes were on point as usual with Tarantino. This movie is different from anything you've probably seen before, and it uses that freshness to its advantage.
|Stunt Man Mike (Death Proof):||[as he drives] Hey, Pam, remember when I said this car was death proof? Well, that wasn't a lie. This car is 100% death proof.|
|Stunt Man Mike (Death Proof):||Ladies! That was fun! Adios! [gets shot]|
|Lee:||I can't belive a fucking Circle A clerk carries Italian Vogue.|
|Abernathy (Death Proof):||It doesn't. It's his own personal copy. He'll let it go for 27 bucks.|
|Lee:||[scoffs] 27 bucks?|
|Abernathy (Death Proof):||What the fuck do you care? We're talking about fucking per diem here. We found an issue of Italian Vogue in Lebanon, Tennessee. We're lucky he's not asking for fuckin' Krugerrands. I'm getting it, and we're splitting it three ways.|
|Lee:||What? Me, you, and Kim?|
|Abernathy (Death Proof):||No. Kim doesn't give a shit about Italian Vogue. But Brandy will come in with us, and if she won't, Tyson, her assistant, will.|
|Lee:||Okay, but if anyone tears out any sheets that I want, you gotta make color Xerox copies of those pages, and I'm not talkin' fuckin' Kinko's here either. You take it to the art department and have them do it fucking right.|
|Lee:||[to Zoë] I'm sorry, but what is 'home'? Is that Australia, right?|
|Zoe (Death Proof):||[seemingly offended] What do you mean by that, mate?|
|Abernathy (Death Proof):||Zoë's from New Zealand. And you never, I repeat, NEVER, call a Kiwi an Aussie.|
|Kim (Death Proof):||Not unless you wanna get your ass kicked.|
|Lee:||I'm so sorry, I really am.|
|Zoe (Death Proof):||[Abby, Zoë and Kim laugh] We're just taking the piss out of you, mate!|
