The Weekly Ketchup: "Grindhouse," Tarantino, And Rodriguez, Oh My!

In this week's Ketchup, "Grindhouse" and all its related byproducts are hogging the spotlight, with Rosario Dawson shedding light (and possibly shedding something else) on her role in "Sin City 2."



Also, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio obviously aren't sick of working together, and the million dollar question: will Batman be a part of the "Justice League" movie? Read on.

"Grindhouse" Earns an R -- and the "Halloween" Trailer
As if you needed a few more reasons to run out and see the Quentin Tarantino / Robert Rodriguez collaboration known as "Grindhouse," well, here's two.

Rosario Dawson Strips Down for Sin City 2
With its revolving characters weaving in and out of its various stories, "Sin City's" movie sequel promises to bring back some of the favorites from the original. Rosario Dawson is definitely coming back as Gail.

Scorsese and DiCaprio, Together Again for the Fourth Time
It's a hectic time for both Leonardo DiCaprio and his own personal svengali, Martin Scorsese; though both are currently super busy, movie-making bees, they'll make time (sometime) to reunite with the based-on-true-story "Wolf of Wall Street."

Will Batman Be a Part of the "Justice League" Flick?

When we learned that WB was putting the (very) early touches on a "Justice League" movie, the first question asked was "Will Superman and Batman be involved?" And now we might know the answer to that question.

GRINDHOUSE IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!! Not only is it two movies from a couple of the greatest filmmakers of our time but there is so much more to look forward to also. I don't need to talk about how excited I am for Grindhouse because I am sure we all are but there will also be the trailers for Rob Zombie's Halloween and Eli Roth's Hostel II! Not to mention the trailers they have done between the two features! I'll be ready Friday afternoon with the biggest bucket of popcorn and the smallest drink! (to keep from having to pee the whole time) I DON'T WANT TO MISS A SINGLE SECOND OF ANY OF IT!!!

[b]GrindHouse review[/b]
I saw GrindHouse on Thursday night, let me tell, it is definitely my favorite movie of the year so far, it is really really good, i like the look they went with, the whole scratched picture thing, both films were good, although I thought "Death Proof" was a little too talky, but Rodriguez's movie "Planet Terror" is definitley kickass, i can't wait to see it again, and the trailers in the movie are great too, and it defintiely does'nt seem like it is 3 hours long, since i manage a movie theatre i will get to see it many times "Very Niice", anyways, i think everyone should go see this film, it Rocks!!

That's sweet that Cillian Murphy and Keira Knightley are making a movie together, but for the love of sanity why did they have to also cast Linday Lohan? Hopefully Carey's movie actually gets made this time.
