  1. This movie really had to grow on me, by now it’s one of my favorites. The genre-switch shocked me when I first saw it. Being part of a Tarantino 3-dvd-box, I was already pissed off when I found some other dude - now one of my idols – directed it. In addition it started classic Tarantino, and turned into gory monstermovie, a genre I really disliked. Only after seeing other Rodriguez’ movies, dislplaying his brilliant sense of humour I decided to watch again… and again… and again

      Sometimes there are films that get better the more you watch them, this is one of those for me. When you first see it and it changes from a robbers on the run film into vampire horror movie its a bit strange. But I think as was stated in Sam’s review they actually compliment each other. Also probably most importantly is the characters QT wrote, theyre very fun to hang out with and you can laugh at them and feel their pain in a very honest way. I still like FDTD more than both Grindhouse movies combined.

      • I couldn’t tell you which I like best. FDTD has the genre-switch within the film, which I find very original. Grindhouse is two different films with some overlap in characters. Both very cool. Planet terror also took some getting used to, the only reason I dig this is because of Rodriguez’s sense of humour taking the whole thing completely over the top. I don’t like horror movies if I’m supposed to take the story seriously.

          Planet Terror: the reason i wasnt that impressed by it was because it didnt really do anything new for the zombie/infected people subgenres. its like a copy of the older 70s/80s films just with some diff characters. at least death proof was a unique genre mixer even though much of it was sort of dull. i still like it most out of the two. at best grindhouse was a minor outing for both directors, like a fun little moviemaking project done on a whim.

          I completely understand that, I prefer Horror movies that have fun with themselves over the ones that try to hard to be serious
