Seems as though there was a Wright-organized friends 'n' colleagues screening in Londunnydondon recently, which His Buxtonness has blogged about very amusingly HERE.

Bonus points for spot-on Entourage and Sopranos observations, Ad.

Cool!
Thanks for posting that Nic.

Dammit! mad.gif I scrolled down & accidentally saw spoilers for the Lost season 3 finale.

Yes, I've stuck with it. rolleyes.gif It takes a lot for me to give up on a TV show or movie part way through.

Feel the love.

Nick & I gave up on long-running episodic TV shows a couple o' three years back - it was just after the second or third time they decided to make another season of Stargate SG-1 after claiming it was going to end.

We just thought "life's too short..." wink.gif

We all have our passions - movies are my passion. I know that a lot of people treat movies as minor diversions, but I just adore movies.

As far as TV goes, I mainly just watch Doctor Who and the odd comedy show now and again. There's nothing that I really go out of my way to watch.

Unless there are re-runs of Dirty Sanchez, of course - one of the few things that actually makes me laugh... wink.gif

Having watched Grindhouse via nefarious means last week I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Planet Terror is great shlocky fun and benefits from having a really good cast and some unexpectedly brutal moments mixed in with the more standard scares and jumpy bits (the missing reel bit is brillantly done too)
Death Proof is something of a self indulgent mess but is also fun due to the chases, crashes and some choice moments when the dialogue is spot on. From the fake trailers Machete is wonderful (can't wait to see the proper film, Thanksgiving is stupid but amusingly bloody, Werewolf Women of the SS is fantastic and Don't is hilarious (and very cleverly put together by EW and co)

So, I liked it and I'm quite interested to find out what the extended cuts of the two movies will be like.
KevinandNick
Can anyone confirm if Edgar's "Don't" trailer is attached to the release of Planet Terror on Friday?

I read a review that said trailers WERE attached at a press screening, but exactly WHICH trailers weren't mentioned, though it's pretty obvious that the Machete trailer is going to be included.

Planet Terror is having a comparatively small distribution - none of the Odeons or Cineworlds in my area aren't playing it and I want to be sure that Edgar's trailer IS going to be showing with it to make me travel to see Planet Terror.

Kev W

I'd imagine that they'll just show the Machete trailer as per the US DVD version of Planet Terror, but I suppose that it could be changed for the UK. I doubt it though.

That wasn't much help, sorry.

Harvey Weinstein reckoned so (at about the 2 min mark). But that's as much as I know.

Nick & I were invited to a cast & crew screening of Edgar's trailer quite a while back, but we weren't able to attend. It would still be nice to catch a big screen showing of it. smile.gif

Empire's review stated that only Machete was attached, specifically stating it was an odd decision to deprive the UK of Edgar Wright's trailer.

Bum.

Then I'll be f****d if I'm trudging all the way over to Bluewater to watch it...

Great news for Melbournites!

I've just found out that the wonderful Astor Theatre will be playing Grindhouse "as it was meant to be seen" from March 20 to March 30 next year.

(hopefully this means with the trailers too - fingers crossed)



Sooooo... who's up for a Melbourne meet in March then?
(and no I wont be going into the gents this time either) tongue.gif

I'm there, if we can make it a weekend night as I have to travel.

Hmmmm. I'm tempted, just for the fun of a Melbourne meet, but I don't know if I want to sit through both movies. Of the two, I'm more interested in Deathproof (& of course seeing Edgar's brilliantly twisted trailer on the big screen). happy.gif Well, I guess I've got a while to think it over.

God bless the Astor, hey? cool.gif

To quote the aforementioned trailer: Don't!

Death Proof is 12.5% action, 12.5% Tarantino self-love, and the other 75% is little more than a boring-as-hell yak-a-thon.

Planet Terror, on the other hand, is non-stop, over-the-top, gory-as-hell, grin-inducing, high-octane excitement. It's probably the most fun zombie gorefest* since Peter Jackson's Braindead.

*I do not include SOTD in this category.

To be honest I like Death Proof for what it is, a pastiche in every respect, script included (most of the exploitation flicks I've seen are tedious talkathons with bits of sensationalist gore/action/sleaze tacked on). Unfortunately it suffers horrendously by being paired with Planet Terror which is never less than massively entertaining. Where Tarantino used the conventions of shitty old B Movies in a completely cosmetic fashion, Rodriguez uses them in genuinely original and creative ways to enhance mood, drive action and in one hilarious instance push the story forwards. It's the best film I've seen in years and a lot of good movies would suffer from direct comparison.
AusChick
This is interesting stuff to know.


I'm really going into it with the idea of the whole "experience" of it, rather than the two individual films - but I may have a different view once I've actually seen it all.

From Omniscia's description of Planet Terror, though, you might be running to the loo for a different reason! (Squeemish!!) wink.gif

I must say, my curiosity is being piqued, though. I guess I have about 3 months to decide, hey? smile.gif

For some reason gore doesn't tend to make me pukey (just makes me cover my eyes - as I'm sure you can attest to!)

Blood is one of the bodily fluids/excretia that I have the least issues with.
Crap, vomit and snot are far worse.

There's something wrong with me isn't there?

I totally agree, Planet Terror is terrific, shlocky fun and probably my favourite film of this year. I can't fail to love any movie that kills off the ever annoying Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas in an extremely messy fashion, within the first fifteen minutes.

The Prince Charles in London is showing both films, however they're only the individual releases at separate times with no trailers, alas.

Does anyone know if there is a region one release of the unedited Grindhouse films? I'd like to snap up that with the region one 3 disc Hot Fuzz.

P.s. I'm jealous of you Melbourne-ites...

If you mean the full US theatrical presentation w/ all trailers intact, no. The current releases are extended versions of both features, but they are only available seperately. (I believe they're the same cuts as the UK theatrical releases.)

See HERE for potential news of a comprehensive Japanese 6-disc edition which will, of course, likely cost more than putting three kids through college.

Who are actually in Melbourne! Count me in as one for the 'jealous' pile.
I saw Deathproof at (the) Drive-In cinema in Coburg, and was bored by the parts that weren't boring - and thoroughly entertained by the entertaining parts (kicker of a soundtrack). But the accounts of Planet Terror have cetainly tickled my interest. I'm not sure how I would compare the two films.
One Film.
Two (in)dependent films.
One Film split in 2.
Um.

Grindhouse IS going to be playing in the UK. The BBFC have recently passed it.

It'll be nice if the Grindhouse version is released on DVD over here...

There has been a strong rumour that Grindhouse (as it was released theatrically) will be released on DVD in the US later this year.

It would certainly make for a cheaper alternative to getting it from Japan.

Will there be special cut of Grindhouse with just the trailers, Planet Terror and the Dave Dee Dozy Beeky Mick & Titch and April March bits from Death Proof. I might be able to sit through it all again if it was that version.

Just tried phoning the Prince Charles Cinema, and they said that the event hasn't been put on the system yet, but should be either on Friday or Saturday, so to try calling then instead.

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE SEASON

GRINDHOUSE poster - select for larger image
GRINDHOUSE [MA 15+]

Thursday, March 20 to Sunday, March 30

Tarantino's and Rodriguez's homage to the trashy drive-in and "grindhouse" double features of the 1970s. Grindhouse was a term reserved for down-at-heel movie theatres that showed D-grade, drive-in-style films, usually with continuous sessions.

The two features are Planet Terror and Death Proof

This EXCLUSIVE presentation is shown exactly as the original version was intended, complete with trailers, "scratches" and intermission. (Scratches are a real-film treat for the DVD-jaded generation.)

A DVD release of the full version is NOT planned. So, here's your chance to finally see this special presentation, on the SuperScreen, in a real-life (but not down-at-heel), double-feature movie palace - The Astor Theatre.

The EXCLUSIVE season will run from Thursday, March 20 to Sunday, March 30.

Session times (including the holiday weekend):

Sundays & Saturdays - 2 PM and 7:30 PM
Monday to Friday - 7:30 PM
