Format: Blu-ray
Finally! Grindhouse, in its original theatrical form, available on blu-ray, in North America! It is about damn time. Now, I never saw it in the theaters sadly, so this is my first time with the whole experience. I have the extended cuts of both movies (Death Proof by Tarantino and Planet Terror by Rodriguez) but this is the original version, the way theater goers saw it, with all five trailers (even Hobo With A Shotgun, but more on that later).

So for those who don't know, Grindhouse is an homage to those 70's movies, all scratchy looking, cheesey, missing reels, a double feature. Planet Terror is up first, but not before Robert Rodriguez' awesome Machete trailer. I mean this trailer was so awesome that they ended up making an actual Machete movie. Danny Trejo is Machete, and Cheech Marin is the Padre, and they are out to get the bad guys. Pretty simple, and pretty awesome. Machete was betrayed by the men who hired him. And as they say in the trailer, "They just ****ed with the wrong Mexican!" Then on to Planet Terror. A deadly toxin has been released into the air, and its effects on the town are too horrible to grasp. This is essentially a zombie movie. A zombie movie with Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Rose McGowan, Fergie, Michael Biehn, and lots more. You can't go wrong. A girl with a gun leg? Yeah, count me in.

Then you get three more trailers: Rob Zombie's incredible Werewolf Women of the SS is up first, starring his regulars such as Sherry Moon Zombie and Bill Mosely. The Nazis are seeking pure German blood to create a race of werewolf women! It's awesome. And the best is the end cameo by Nicolas Cage as...FU MANCHU! Next up is Edgar Wright's horror trailer for Don't, featuring some actors that you may recognize from his other films.

Finally, we get the presentation the way it was meant to be, not pieced out and double dipped. Great films, great visual quality, great experience.

Almost perfect, don't believe the one star reviews. Oct. 5 2010
By Dennis - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
This set is getting bad reviews, based on a few people who really don't know what they're talking about. One of the reviews gave the blu ray a one-star review because this set isn't available on DVD. How does that make sense? Some other reviews, bashed the fact that these aren't the "extended" versions. Of course there not, you can already buy those. The point of this set is recreate the entire theatrical experience, so of course they have the theatrical cuts of the film and in my opinion, this is the way these films were meant to be seen. Also keep in mind that most of those bad reviews, came out before this edition did, therefore they aren't first hand reviews and are inaccurate.
I received the set today and it's great, packaging is great incredibly detailed and really adds to the feel of the fims. The movies play just as they did in theaters, which to me is the best way to see them and it is packed with special features, a good amount of them exclusive to this set. If you liked the Grindhouse films, but didn't get to see them in theaters, or if your like me and wanted to recreate that experience, then I highly recommend this set. If you want the extended cuts, well then go buy those.

FINALLY! The complete (and i do mean COMPLETE!) Grindhouse eperince on Blu Ray. Dec 6 2010

This is the definitive way to watch Grindhouse. This is identical to the theatrical release. it has all the trailers, intermission cards, ratings cards, EVERYTHING (YES, it also has the Machete trailer), Looks and sounds great. I owned the previous stand alone Blu rays of the two films, but this is definitely the only way to watch them both. I doubt I'll ever watch either of these two films separately again now that I have this, having it all together with the trailers really makes for a much more enjoyable experience.

This is a spectacular edition Oct. 7 2010
By Gregorio - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
What more could anyone possibly want from the long awaited debut of GRINDHOUSE on region 1 video? This is far superior to the previous extended version releases, including all of the trailers and fun bits that made GRINDHOUSE so great. The double feature versions play much better than the padded extended versions available on the previous seperate video releases. Everything about this release screams QUALITY. As far as the PQ goes, this looks as good as a film that is deliberately made to look battered and worn can look. Much has been made about the lack of a lossless audio track but again, the audio track is full of pops and hisses added to make the film seem worn out so I think the standard 5.1 is fine. As far as the extras go . . . there are too many to go into. It takes more than a day to watch and listen to everything that is included on this release. There are extended versions of the trailers as well as audio commentaries for them, storyboard comparisons, interviews, making of's, another cooking school segment from Robert - the list goes on and on. The packaging is outstanding as well with the two discs coming in a gatefold slipcase, a high quality insert duplicating the poster art and an inner sleeve with lobby card art printed on the reverse side. Vivendi couldn't have done a better job with this.

This is the long awaited "Theatrical Version" of the film. It does not contain the "Directors Cuts" - You should already have them!
It is not 2 separate movies, its one long 3 hour originally seen in theatres.

"The Machete trailer that everyone is stating isn't included"....... FACT! Machete plays before Planet Terror as it was supposed to.
It never screened alongside the other "fake" trailers during the intermission.

This version has only been available as an import from Japan and an enormous mark up, so pre order now!

I've been waiting for this for four years... Oct. 7 2010
By Kristijonas - Published on

Ever since that fateful day when I sat down in a dark theater auditorium and experienced the full beauty of this double feature had I been waiting for a collection like this. I just received it in the mail today, and believe me, it's what YOU have been waiting for as well. The Tarantino-Rodriguez double-feature is more glorious than ever in this set, the theatrical-cut films pieced together in the exact same manner as in the theatre: The fake trailers are all present, and so are all the vintage disclaimers and other nuisances. The films themselves are gorgeous and astonishingly enhanced in Blu-Ray. The crisp picture and colors go so much further in enhancing all those witty effects and distortions that we loved so much in both Planet Terror and Death Proof. And there is a wide breadth of special features on the second disc available, many of them exclusive to the set. They're all entertaining and often very hilarious, but mostly serve to help us movie-goers and fans get inside the minds of these masterminds and really see how they saw the movies while they were being created. The packaging is also very meticulous. Overall, best $25 spent in a long time.
