    Death Proof

    I am watching the movie Death Proof.....In all honesty I am not sure if it is one of the best spoof movies I have ever seen or the worst........ All I do know is I can't stop watching it.

    That's what I feel when I watch Tank Girl.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Call it more of a "tribute" movie, not a spoof. Tarantino really digs that kind of stuff, and set out to make a kickass car chase movie like the best ones that he remembered. The stunt girl riding the hood of the Challenger also worked with him in Kill Bill and probably a few other flicks.

    You should've seen it in the theater (along with Planet Terror -- Rose McGowan with a machine *** leg FTW).

    Grindhouse rocked. +1 on the theater thing, especially the Alamo Drafthouse that actually serves decent beer during the movie.

    i suspect you would have enjoyed it more if you watched the movie, instead of watched and read bf.

    Hmmm. Putting this on my "To Watch" list.
    I'm watching an independent, low budget film called "Nailed." Some gave it good reviews - if you like creepy, weird stuff. So far .... meh. I'll finish it later today. Which goes to show that it didn't hold my attention too much.

    premise sounds interesting, but that's not exactly a low budget cast, even if they're working for scale.

    I was talking about the 2006 psycho-thriller movie. Not sure if you read the reviews for this or the one with the same name coming in 2009 with Jessica Biel.

    I would so think from that title, it would have to be NC-17 or unrated
    The search for inner peace continues...

    That's why I watched it.
    Actually I read several reviews about how creepy it was and that some may not be able to handle it. I'm doing just fine.

    I was indeed referring to the David O. Russell film.

    If you liked Death Proof, you might also like Machine Girl.
