Saturday, April 14, 2007
As many of you may not have gone out to see the new double feature movie by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino, but I have to say go see it. What these two directors do is make movies the way they were intended to be made, for pure enjoyment and to escape reality. I was quite shocked when I saw it on opening night at 8pm and the theater was more than half full. Then I saw it again on Saturday with another group of buddies at the same time and the theater put it in a small auditorium and it still wasn't full. I don't get it, yes it may have a run time of over 3 hours, but you are getting 2 films for that $10 you paid at the door. It can't get better than that with Hollywood pumping out movie after movie with lots of junk in the middle. They wonder why ticket sales are down, well, they keep charging more and more money and pump out 6 new movies in one weekend and expect people to see them all. By putting out those numbers how do expect a movie that more people should see to have time to see it. That is enough ranting, go see Grindhouse on the big screen before it taken out by more new releases next weekend. Once it is out of the theaters then you will have to wait for the DVD and then you will have to pay for each movie separately.
