GRINDHOUSE



A red band trailer that actually delivers the goods? Most definitely. Or is it just spoiling every gag in the movie? If not, then Machete really is looking like a satisfyingly bloody movie. Another possible gripe is the amount of CG blood splattering around. The whole point of Grindhouse is to relive the '70's aesthetic, so hopefully this has it's share of fun practical gags too. I have to admit that I like the idea of having Machete and Thanksgiving sitting next to Planet Terror and Death Proof on the DVD shelf.

yeah, great cast and impressive looking gore definitely. but with RR directing, who knows? i mean this is the guy who made abominations like "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl" and "Shorts" for fuck sake.
