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.

This is a movie theater experience. It needs to be seen at night, with a big screen and lots of friends.

As amusing as the concept is, the actual result is a considerable disappointment - a high-tech forgery that lacks the disreputable charm of its models, which were made without the self-conscious affectation on display here.

Hopefully Rodriguez and Tarantino will make more of these.

A mediocre attempt to play with exploitation fire without getting burned. A pair of anti-septic fakes that miss the entire point of exploitation.

3-D Naughtiness! Perverts in Revolt! Sinful Dwarfs! And Even a Movie Review, Why Not?

Has Tarantino ever made a singularly authentic, sincere, innovative frame of film in his entire life?

The trailers for grindhouse movies were always better than the films themselves. Sadly, the same is true of Grindhouse.

Each film would have fared better as a 15-minute short.

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.

It is a movie about watching itself, and that is both solipsistic and pure genius.

[In Death Proof, Tarantino] gleefully subverts the genre to keep us thoroughly entertained.

Thank you Tarantino, thank you Rodriguez, it was a pleasure...

While I believe Tarantino to be a far greater artist when it comes to lining his cinematic and pop culture channelings with elements of profundity, Rodriguez is something of a master at to-the-point entertainment.

An intriguing package of faux trailers and senseless violence. Rarely is there a film that is so unquestionably enjoyable. Might give the '70s grind house flicks a good name.

The numbness of sitting through nearly two hours of dreck isn't all that kills the momentum going in to Death Proof.
