DEATH PROOF (2007) THREE TOP HATS

PROOF1

Despite the fact that he’s turned into one of the ugliest men in Hollywood, we all love Quentin Tarantino’s movies, right? Right? Sure. This may get some people to unfollow me but I am all about honesty here and there’s this –> there is always something I don’t like about his movies: there’s WAY TOO MUCH GODDAMN TALKING. “BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB BLAB.” All of his characters say for almost three hours.

PROOF2

That’s what you get for the first fifty fucking minutes of this: Tarantino at his most pretentious BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH TALK TALK TALK TALK TALK  while he plays a soundtrack of his favorite obscure music. Then, after those fifty fucking minutes something wonderfully awesome and creative happens that reminds you of how innovative and cool Tarantino’s movies are.

But that only lasts about three minutes and then it’s back to this with a new set of characters: BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER FOOT MASSAGE BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER BACK RUBS BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH MOTHER FUCKER OBSCURE MOVIES.

Grind House (Death Proof)

And then the last twenty minutes are wicked awesome – especially the last ten after Russell gets shot and he goes around crying and screaming NOOOO NO NO WHYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?!!? But that still doesn’t take away from the fact that two thirds of this movie is just six chicks doing a LOT of talking. In the end, I enjoyed this thing but this is the second time I have watched it and that’s probably enough. Either way – be sure to check back here tomorrow because we have a very titillating interview popping up that might just make you laugh yourself silly. Or piss your pants, even! LOL – did I just write that?? You should totally say that like Yogi Bear: “It might make you piss your pants, eeeeeven.” Not a kid growing up in the 70s in America? That reference might be lost on you… : (

  1. Lol I enjoy dialogue heavy movies, provided it isn’t boring and useless chatter (like ridiculous teenage girls). Oh well. Tarantino is freaking amazing, albeit that he is an incredibly unattractive man hahaha!

  2. I hate this movie, and said so on my blog, and was besieged on my personal Facebook by men telling me I had to like it because feminism. Ugh. It’s not a feminist movie, and while the women are attractive (except for the one with no nose) they all are annoying because they talk like Tarantino. The car wreck in the middle was bad ass, though.

  3. There is loads and heaps of talking here, but I didn’t mind it all that much since Tarantino’s dialogue is usually fun, witty, humorous and always able to be looked at in several different ways than what we just normally see or hear in front of us. That said, Stuntman Mike was the shit so when he showed up, I had no problems whatsoever. Good review.

  4. The dialogue heavy scripts are what makes Tarantino’s films different and great, most of the time. This is an example of when it is too much. A lot of those Grindhouse films in the 1970’s were like this, they would be talking for an hour about things that had nothing at all to do with the storyline or plot. Rodriguez took the best parts of Grindhouse films and made it his own, in a violent and interesting film – Tarantino took it too literally and showed us why those grindhouse films never stood the test of time. I still like the film but I can fast forward through a few conversations and not miss a beat 🙂

  5. I freaking love this film. Possibly my favourite of Tarantino’s actually. I recently saw it as part of the original Grindhouse double bill in the cinema which is how he wanted to release and that was pretty badass.
