oh.my.god.

grindhouse is the fuckin’ shit.  over the top-pulpy-decadent and gratuitously violent.  cb and i went to a late showing last night.  i was on the edge of my seat many-a-time.

“I want to eat your brains… and gain your knowledge.” 

i loved it.

every stinking minute.

from robert rodriquez’ zombie thriller planet terrorstaring the divine rose mcgowen (who i’m completely and totaly in lust with), to tarentino’s sublime chase movie death proof(which starts out much darker and ends up being a glorious chicks-revenge movie ala 1972) featuring rosario dawson, a woman who officially is on my “i would switch for list”.

“this car is 100% death proof, only to get the benefit of it honey, you really need to be sitting in my seat!”

i know the flick is not doing great at the box office, but fuck’em.  nobody ever said the american public had taste or could judge great art.

i will so buy this flick on dvd the minute it’s out.

oh, did i mention the music – glorious music – especially the tune chick habit by april march.  this is so a soundtrack purchase today!

Oh cool, thanks for the fuck’n review!

lol. You crack me up. I can feel your geekiness love for Rodriguez/Tarantino. I love them too. I’m going to catch it this weekend.

Hope you’re doing well bud 🙂

I laughed uproariously at this movie. It was great. Loved the ‘prevues’ and the ‘missing reel’ bits.

chick habit was also in “But I’m Cheerleader”
that song kicks ass
and im totally not going to go see that movie.
i stay away from the news because of the constant violence…i have no stomach for it anymore. He just makes it prettier and brighter than FOX.
