I was really worried that this couldn't live up to expectations, but I left more than satisfied. Between the gory intensity of Planet Terror, the twisted brilliance of the fake trailers, and the spectacular car stunts of Death Proof, it's hard to think of a more entertaining three hours I've spent in a theater recently. Tarantino's segment is definitely the weakest; it's excessively talky, and while I like Tarantino's writing, it does drag the film down a bit. (Yes, I get that he's playing up that 60s/70s style of filmmaking, but as long as they're overly mythologizing the whole grindhouse experience, couldn't we romanticize out some of the talking?) That being said, the wait makes the payoffs even better when they get there, and make no mistake, they're all pretty amazing. On the other hand, Planet Terror is a complete blast--a high-octane kick-ass zombie flick with all the gleeful gore the genre demands, capped with a ghoulish black sense of humor. Add into that the hilarious trailers (Machete steals the show, but all four are great), and you have a hell of a time at the movies.
