Together for the very first time the Rodriguez/Tarantino Double Feature GRINDHOUSE is back and much better than ever! These rip-roaring and adrenaline-pumping films are now included in the initial theatrical exhibition format. Packed with over 2 hours of reward material, consisting of the fan preferred "Rodriguez's 10 Minute Cooking School", this 2-disc Blu-Ray will deliver a brand-new experience like never ever before!Loud, quickly, and happily out of control, Grindhouse is a tribute to the low-budget exploitation films that prowled at drive-ins and inner city theaters in the '60s and early '70s. Writers/directors Quentin Tarantino(Kill Bill)and Robert Rodriguez(Sin City)cooked up this three-hour double function as a way to pay homage to thesefilms, and the end result manages to evoke the down-and-dirty ambiance of the initial films for an audience that might be too young to keep in mind them. Tarantino's Death Proof is the mellower of the two, reasonably speaking; it's wordier (as to be expected )and swarming with pulp/comic book posturing and incomparably quotable discussion. It likewise includes a terrific lead performance by Kurt Russell as a bloodthirsty stunt male whose weapon of option is a souped-up automobile. Tarantino's affection for his own discussion slows down the action sometimes, but he does offer flashy roles for a host of pleasant actresses, consisting of Rosario Dawson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose McGowan, Sydney Poitier, and newbie Zoe Bell, who was Uma Thurman's stunt double in Kill Bill. Critics might decry the widespread violence and latch onto a sexist undertone in Tarantino's function, but for those audiences who grew up watching these types of films in either theaters or on VHS, such aspects will be most likely be more of a virtue than a destructive factor. Rodriguez's Planet Terror is a rollicking horror/sci-fi/action piece about a pester outbreak that turns citizens into cannibalistic killers; it's heavy on the gore and surges but likewise includes a terrific cast of A gamers(Freddy Rodriguez, Naveen Andrews, Marley Shelton )and B-movie veterinarians (Michael Biehn, Jeff Fahey, Tom Savini)and the enduring image of Rose McGowan as a stripper whose torn-off leg is replaced by a high-powered machine gun. -Paul Gaita
