Schadenfreude. Schadenfreude.
In Answer To Your Question Justin…

Grindhouses were shitty movie theatres in the 60′s and 70′s that booked the sleaziest, cheapest, most lurid movies being independently distributed. Movies so low budget that the only advertising they had was their content; teens, sex, death, tits, karate, and blacks. They exploited these subjects to draw people in to see movies with no stars and no budgets. They were made cheap, booked cheap, and the cheap theatre brought in lots of perverts, teens, and blacks in to get a cheap thrill. To further draw people in they’d throw in a second movie for free. Now tell me, wouldn’t you rather get two movies at half the price of one Jaws, pothead?
Grindhouses were replaced with VCR’s and dissappeared forever.
So…
Grindhouse, the new film by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez simulates an evening at a grindhouse in this bygone era, complete with trailers for fake movies directed by Rob Zombie (those movies I haven’t seen, Eli Roth (Hostel, and that Sean of the Dead Guy (Hot Fuzz.

However, if you live in L.A. you can experience a recreation of a 70′s grindhouse every night of the week from now until the end of April as Quentin has programmed every night at the Music Box with a double or triple feature of exploitation films from his very own print collection.

Speaking of which, I once again found myself glazing over at midnight two nights ago. I saw the ending to Coonskin which is like an animated Bamboozled. I’ve never been more amazed that a film got made. Then came Tarzoon a cartoon parody of Tarzan where every joke is about sex…

Then came Tarzoon a cartoon parody of Tarzan where every joke is about sex… There were these big giant dicks that ran with their balls and kidnapped Jane and gave her a full day orgasm while Tarzan tried to save her. People who want to watch a funny movie, head for the hills, but comedy scholars should take a look, it’s interesting to hear a coupel Michael O’Donaghue and Anne Beatts jokes (they were writing for SNL in 1979 when this was made) and Christopher Guest basically does his Flash Bazbo voice from National Lampoon Radio Hour, but he mumbled for like ten minutes straight, it get really funny as he just talks and talks.
And finally, Tunnel Vision a sketch movie from 1976 featuring a huge assortment of sketch comedians from the time, Chevy Chase, John Candy, Betty Thomas, Joe Flaherty, Al Franken, Tom Davis. The “plot” is that this tv channel, “Tunnel Vision,” has made everyone in America stop working to they can watch more “Tunnel Vision.” So the senate has to get to the bottom of this channell and has a hearing wherein they watch clips of the tv station. That’s it.
Here’s Tarzoon the french version, the frat guy is the guy that Belushi overdubbed.
