Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez team up for a double feature meant to pay tribute to the old, scummy theaters of yesteryear that used to play crap. I dont know if it really succeeds in doing that; I just know that the films are a lot of fun. Rodriguez directs Planet Terror
, with Rose McGowan fighting zombies with her machine-gun leg. Tarantino directs Death Proof
, an ode to car-chase movies, starring Kurt Russell as a serial killer who likes to destroy beautiful women with his automobile. The prints for the movies give off the impression theyve run through the projector a million times. Fake trailers directed by the likes of Eli Roth and Rob Zombie round out the experience. People have been shying away from this one, and some of that probably has to do with the three-hour-plus running time. Too bad, because if you are staying away, youre missing a great theatrical experience. Dont wait for the video.
