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.

More like an experienced man with proper tastes. If "frankenstein's monster" is the best you little abortions can do, it really just proves his point about this film's target audience all the more. Go back to playing with your tinker-toys and watching your mother change.

stupid idiot how about judge the movie based on it's own merits.

Maybe he is just pointing how obviously bad this movie truely was instead of being hyped up on how overrated people are making it.
May 31 - 11:24 AM
Agreed. It seems as though he didn't like this movie because it wasn't as good as the directors' other efforts. That's a stupid reason to not like it.

yep, the guy that revolutionized modern film criticism is a stupid idiot for disliking this film. what the **** man, at least look who you are trolling at

Ebert was right. This movie was awful.
Aug 18 - 07:26 PM
Wake up. He gave it a 2.5/4. That's not awful.

I quite liked "Grindhouse". I accept your opinion Ebert, for I know that you are intelligent man.

Some people are upset because Roger Ebert dared to dislike a Quentin Tarantino film

I would agree to an extent; if you go into this film and embrace it's cheesiness, you will probably enjoy it. If you have a taste for dramatic and dialog-heavy movies, whis one will probably be sub-par.

Great review, Ebert. Death Proof was fairly original and tense, but Planet Terror was simply retarded.
Jan 4 - 01:12 PM
Yes, how dare a movie that was intended to be a straight up homage to shlocky 70s exploitation movies not be an artistically challenging reflection on the human condition.
May 21 - 10:33 AM
Grindhouse rocks. Roger can't be right all the time.
Jan 5 - 03:21 PM
Wow, it's just his opinion, honestly.
