The sum is greater than it's parts. When I saw this in theaters, it was the best movie-going experience I ever had. Bluray simply cannot replicate the experience. It's a shame. Watch it on the big screen with as many people as possible to receive it's intended effect.
Although i didn't find Planet Terror that satisfactory and i learned to appreciate Death Proof after i hated it the first time i watched it, it was really entertaining all in all,and a really interesting experience watching 2 somehow contemporary films trying to immitate a genre that had it's peak long before i was even born
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.
