I got to watch Grindhouse this weekend. Being a fan of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, I figured why not. While it’s not the best movie the world has ever seen, it’s definitely not the worst. If you like their other stuff, you should like this. A lot of the same actors from their previous films make appearances in one fashion or another.

If I had a complaint, it’s Rose McGowan. Too bad she was in the film. Not a good actress. And she has that skankiness about her. Like a poor man’s Tara Reid. Who in turn is a poor man’s Lindsey Lohan. Who in another turn is a poor man’s Paris Hilton. Don’t these girls just scream “classy”?

Anyway, back to Grindhouse. Worth the price of admission? I guess. It’s a double feature so be warned that it’s long, and your ass will most likely be hurting after a while. Worth the price on DVD? Sure, if it’s on sale.

If you do get a chance to check it out, pay attention to Zoe Bell. She is a stunt woman out of New Zealand and plays herself in the second film of the double feature. This girl is a bad ass. You’ll see why.

Today's Deep Thought

  • I remember that one fateful day when coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. 'You don't have to tell me,' I said. 'I'm off the team, aren't I?' 'Well,' said coach, 'you never were really on the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet. you show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times.' It was all true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this coach. He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.
