Grindhouse

[Amazon Link] [3.5
stars] [IMDb Link]

Quite frankly, this movie should only be seen by guys between the ages of 55 and 57.

The movie is a tribute to old B-movie double features, with phony trailers, and simulated grainy and damaged film stock. And piles and piles of gratuitous gruesome violence, disturbing images, bad language, and lots of cheese.

There are a lot of oddities here: good actors acting as if they were mediocre actors; a lot of pointless and lengthy dialogue, especially in the second feature; but—also in the second feature—the movie turns into less of a self-aware parody of a movie, and actually turns into a movie. Weird.

I was also the only person in the theater watching this.
