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.

    rose mcgowan was cast FOR her skankiness. isn’t that obvious? that was the whole point.

    any other actress cast in that roll would be fucken retarded.

    Wow Thor. When you put it that way, then the casting was perfect! :)

  • Zoe Bell is indeed impressive.

    That whole scene on the hood of the car had me grinding my teeth into saw-dust (well, ok, bone-meal, my teeth aren’t wood… yet), and the way she just popped up like that was instant classic.

    Hope to see her in more.

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
