You are such a smart guy with your witty comments.
one of those movies you should watch on the first date (personal unpopular opinion?)
Quite possibly the best time I had at the movies! The 3-hour cut version is the essential viewing of Grindhouse. The great thing about this movie is that both Rodriguez and Tarantino understand the exploitation cinema of the 70s and 80s. The fake movie trailers in-between are hysterically creative, and you can tell they had fun making them. This movie is immensely entertaining and undeniably cool to watch.
saw this at an old cinema house in hawaii from the 20's on a hot, humid night. perfect experience.
Missed it in theaters (came and went almost overnight where I live) and have been waiting to see the complete "Grindhouse" theatrical experience with all the trailers intact. I've refused to buy (or even watch) the separated, expanded "director's" cut DVD releases (with no trailers). I want the original theatrical experience my first time. Now that it's finally(!) been released on DVD & Blu-ray in the States, I can.
