| Go see it in the theater.
I went to the premier in Austin last night. Wow, what an awesome event. Here are a few brief thoughts: One of the previews, that is being made into a movie, looks absolutely absurd and I am sure that it will be a joy to watch.

Planet Terror kept you laughing, groaning, and cringing the entire time. Enough action to keep you into it, enough campy gore to laugh at, and plenty of build up to have you cheering for the good guys. Rodriguez put together an A-rated, B-movie.

Death Proof was also enjoyable. I may have been antsy due to the cramped seating, but it seemed like there was a little lull in the middle. I didn't want to get up at intermission as I didn't want to miss the trailers. As Tarantino has done before, there is some great dialogue flying around the core group of actors.

I will definitely go see it again in the theater. I missed some of the dialogue due to the roar of the audience. However, I think having an interactive audience really adds to the experience.

Enjoy.

Trivia

After the sexual assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein went public in 2017, Robert Rodriguez revealed that Rose McGowan had confided to him that Weinstein had assaulted her as well. She had signed a nondisclosure agreement about it and had subsequently been blacklisted from any films the Weinsteins produced. Rodriguez said he cast McGowan to get even with him, knowing that his brother Bob Weinstein, who ran Dimension films, knew nothing of it, and that Harvey could not object without having to admit to his past.


Quotes

Kim: Motherfucker try to rape me, I don't wanna give him a skin rash, I wanna shut that nigga down.


Goofs

In the final scene of "Death Proof," when the Dodge Challenger forces the Charger to spin out and crash, the Charger's rear wheels are still on the car. As the girls approach the car in the next scene, one rear wheel (driver's side) is no longer in the car.
