The duplex called Grindhouse

Yeah, we ... know ... about ... the ... trailers*.

*NSFW! None of them!

But thanks to the Encore movie package, the two feature-length segments of the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino tag-team's 2007 offering, Grindhouse, have been circulating a bit, too.

Here are a few reasons why the first chapter, Planet Terror, is awesome:

-Rose. Mc. Gowan.

-The cord that's just a liiiiiittle too short.

-You'll shoot your eye out.

-"I must have passed out after I killed those things."


-"Break a leg."

-The under-the-radar helicopter ride.

-And many, many more.


Now, here are the reasons why Death Proof is great:

Wait -- Death Proof is not great. And even if it had the chance to be, you couldn't hear me explain it because the characters won't ... stop ... TALKING!

So here's some belated praise to the powers-that-be for dividing these two after the film's unsuccessful theater run. (And, while we're at it, for not getting too finicky about all those trailers being on YouTube.)
