Product Description

Product Description

Russell/Dawson/Mcgowan ~ Death Proof

Amazon.ca

Loud, fast, and proudly out of control, Grindhouse is a tribute to the low-budget exploitation movies that lurked at drive-ins and inner city theaters in the '60s and early '70s. Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof is rife with pulp/comic book posturing and eminently quotable dialogue. It also features a terrific lead performance by Kurt Russell as a homicidal stunt man whose weapon of choice is a souped-up car. Tarantino's affection for his own dialogue slows down the action at times, but he does provide showy roles for a host of likable actresses, including Rosario Dawson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rose McGowan, Sydney Poitier, and newcomer Zoe Bell, who was Uma Thurman's stunt double in Kill Bill. Detractors may decry the rampant violence and latch onto a sexist undertone in Tarantino's feature, but for those viewers who grew up watching these types of films in either theaters or on VHS, such elements will be probably be more of a virtue than a detrimental factor. -- Paul Gaita --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Quentin Tarantino's homage to 70's exploitation films is not as good as
the other half of the Grindhouse feature,Planet Terror.this one has
some really great 70's music and some good dialogue,although some of it
seems contrived,and i just didn't think it was as clever as Planet
Terror.it takes awhile too get going,and once it does get going,it's
not bad,though not as exciting as it should have been.there's an
ensemble cast here,and all are good.Kurt Russel is perfectly cast as
Stuntman Mike,an insane driving terror,who happens to terrorize the
wrong women and gets a taste of his own medicine.there's a lot of very
frequent oars language here and a bit of gore.unfortunately,this movie
just isn't as fun as i hoped.not horrible,just not great.for me,Death
Proof is a 3/5

This DVD rocks!
Granted, a film like this won't be to everyone's taste (nor should it be). "Death Proof - Extended and Unrated" is long and talky, but if you're game enough to stick with it you'll be rewarded with some witty banter, some steamy scenes, and some of the best smash-up car chases in years. All this and a groovy soundtrack, too.
The extras -- mainly concerning the background, editing and casting of the film -- are not wildly extensive. However, they more than adequately convey the filmmakers' excitement and enthusiasm for what they felt would be a return to the freewheeling days of exploitation cinema: when small time studios tossed aside mainstream cinematic conventions and threw in everything but the kitchen sink to deliver some cheap thrills and make a fast buck.
That the theatrical double-feature bombed at the box office is both a crime and a shame. While it would be nice to have the whole enchilada in one convenient package, at least this project saw the light of day which is a far better fate than most such endeavours would likely receive in this age of empty-headed, watered-down, inspirationless CGI-fests. Whatever has been taken out or added to this release since then (and whatever double-dips may lie on the horizon), I'd rather have it piecemeal than not at all.
Don't deny yourselves, folks; buy this DVD. Bundle it up in a homemade double feature with "Planet Terror" (or any exploitation flick of your choice), invite a few friends over and have a rollicking good time.

Format: DVD
This is a much better movie than it gets credit for. Sure, it's not as much fun as Planet Terror and is admittedly heavy on dialogue that isn't always exactly interesting, but it's still a very well made movie, which is perhaps (and understandably) what people weren't looking for in their Grindhouse experience. The first half is very entertaining and feels like a particularly well made horror flick from the late 70's. The second half is what people generally seem to have problems with, and I agree that it isn't as interesting as the first half and goes too far with the long girly dialogue. But it has its own merits, such as a fantastic car chase, great cinematography in Tarantino's native Tennessee, and a more-than-satisfying ending. As a whole, Death Proof has a great soundtrack of lesser-known songs that should be more-known, and Kurt Russel is absolutely perfect in his role, perhaps even brilliant.

Format: DVD
This flick was pretty good. Quentin Tarantino could of written this story behind a paper coaster if he wanted to. This story of a stuntman and his fetish for auto-erotica seem just that, split as it is into two separate but corresponding stories. The first half sees four girls getting drunk and dirty at a filthy old bar in town, where they meet the sinister Stuntman Mike (Russell). The latter half sees Mike in pursuit of four new female targets, consisting of Abbie (Dawson), Lee (Mary-Elizabeth Winstead), Kim (Tracey Thoms) and stunt girl Zoe (Bell, playing herself). In both stories, Mike uses his "death proof" car to hunt the girls down and get his rocks off.

The scratched film certainly looks the part of a B Film, while audio is badly synched, scenes are spliced together in a slapdash fashion and the camera work is shaky. It's a charming and well-meaning idea, but this amateur effect only applies to the first half of the movie. The second half, shot in glorious Technicolor (except for a Kill Bill-esque slip into black and white), is immaculately shot and acted, Tarantino circling the camera around his girls in a seven minute uninterrupted take like a consummate pro. So is this a grind house movie or not? Intentional inconsistency is no excuse.

Despite his aping of B-movie directors like Roger Corman, "Death Proof" is still very much a Quentin Tarantino film; characters spend what seems like an eternity discussing moot points in that inimitable pop culture patter of his; people and themes pop up from Tarantino adventures been and gone; the requisite lingering foot shot makes an early appearance.
