A long, blood-splattered stunt of a movie, Grindhouse, may be something only critics and film nerds can love.

What amazed me however, was the unexpected feeling of feminine empowerment.

What we're mainly getting is two big directors with expensive movies pretending they're niche directors with low funding. It's an act, but an enthralling one.

A unapologetically entertaining double feature that, despite its drawn out runtime and clunky moments, has an inventive take on an old and often cringe-worthy genre

Grindhouse is more fun than an army of toxic zombies, or a shapely severed leg hitting the highway with a thump.

Underneath the exploitation, Tarantino and Rodriguez offer film lovers the gift of nostalgia

Two stars for Planet Terror, three stars for Death Proof and four stars for the fake trailers means an average grade of three stars overall.

Here's a movie that certain film fans will love.But that's a small segment of the film-going community. So, even though I realize that aficionados of exploitation films will find this entertaining, other film goers will find "Grindhouse" perverse and offe

A museum installation of crap culture artifacts that is both entirely too much and not nearly enough. The tiresome, self-referential Tarantino has become trapped in his own Jack Rabbit Slim's.

Grindhouse is not your dear Aunt Martha's movie, but it's a heck of a ride.

Packaging a three-hour-plus program may be daring, but pairing a long running time with junk-food cinema is enough to make you sick.

It's sexy girl power mixed with frustrated male aggression, played out at 100 miles per hour on a sunny day. And it's fantastic.

Grindhouse...is a slam bam smash 'em up celebration of the freedom given film by the exploitation industry.

One's the bomb, while the other's simply a bomb.

A timed challenge for five directors to remove, impale, explode or gorily drip to the floor every body part possible. Even if Tarantino eviscerates too much momentum at the midway point, it's still a giddy, ghastly blast.

While not a washout, Death Proof is inferior to Rodriguez's masterfully over-the-top Planet Terror, which is more fun than is probably legal.

It is not the movies themselves that are great, though the flesh-eating zombie thriller by Rodriquez is the better of the two. Rather, it is the way they are presented.

Your feature presentation: two movies made entirely of awesome.

Rodriguez understood the project the better of the two directors and made the more appropriate of the two films. Tarantino appears to have gotten into making his film and then forgot what he was supposed to be doing.
