I think he was trying. I think he was trying to make a dope gory funny old-school-style movie. And he succeeded.

Apr 27th 2008
14
Aside from the dope car chase, there were 10 minutes of story...
Apr 27th 2008
15
      We agree on something.
Apr 27th 2008
16
           I'm all for a plotless flick filled with great dialogue.
Apr 27th 2008
17
                fuck a QT film, that shit was one of the worst movies
Apr 27th 2008
18

Apr 27th 2008
19
                          Nah
Apr 28th 2008
26
                               I was rootin for Kurt as well
Apr 28th 2008
27
                               I hated even more the radical character shift by Kurt Russell.
Apr 28th 2008

So he intentionally made a boring and bad movie? Cool.
Apr 28th 2008
22
      I love that excuse
Apr 28th 2008
23
      Well it *is* a bit of a cop out
Apr 29th 2008
32
           Do you really think that's how he pitched it to Harvey?
Apr 30th 2008
35
                Kurt was a kool ass killer but the story was boring as hell.

                     How is a film so bad that it's over our heads? I don't get it.
May 02nd 2008
39
                          You are taking it the wrong way
May 02nd 2008
40
                               And if you get the reference... it's still bad.
May 02nd 2008
42
                               It's not over my head. I get it. But at the end, it's still a BAD MOVIE.
May 02nd 2008

So did he make Machette yet? Is it available to watch if not
Apr 28th 2008
21
that trailor kills me...
Apr 28th 2008

Apr 28th 2008

whatever, the lap dance was excellent
Apr 28th 2008
30
This film has already been analyzed more than it deserves.
Apr 29th 2008
31
But it's intentionally bad! Which makes it good! You just don't get it.
Apr 29th 2008

      Its brilliance is in how it delivered, perfectly, such shittiness.
Apr 30th 2008

      Have you ever been to a Grindhouse theatre?

           People have accepted the concept as a dumb fucking concept

                               If he was going for a movie that his audiences would hate...

                                    We're not simply stating that. We know what he was trying to do.

                                         Here's the thing
May 02nd 2008
53
                                              If an exploitation movie goes over someone's head, it's a failure

                                                                       He actually said outright he didn't want it to be cheesy.
May 02nd 2008
62
                                                                            whatever
May 02nd 2008
65
                                                                                 They wanted the look to be scratchy. They both admitted that.
May 02nd 2008

                                                                                 Films can look low budget and be good
May 02nd 2008
67
                                                                                      Do you guys have any clue what a logical discussion involves?
May 02nd 2008
68
                                                                                      Except Tarantino has said he didn't want it to be cheesy

May 02nd 2008
63
                Not bad. Doin some research, organizing and outlining, you know.
May 02nd 2008
64
I fucking loved both Planet Terror AND Death Proof.
May 02nd 2008
73
I have to agree, family.

                Yep, if I was Hulk I'd be smashing shit. No wait, I'm not mad at all.
May 05th 2008
92
                no numbers
May 05th 2008

                     it's convenient how numbers can be used both ways
May 05th 2008
93
