Is there anybody more excited about seeing Grindhouse than me? I spent the early 2000’s on eBay tracking down all the exploitation films that Quentin showed at his QT fests in Austin, off of that I fell in love with Exploitation Soundtracks. I spent the last month going to almost a dozen Exploitation double-bills at the New Beverly (and I’ve still got a month left and SLITHIS tomorrow night! I mean, I’m ready. I love getting really ready for a film I’m excited about. As Dave Cenko, Sara Tolbert, Fred Mowery, Mike Anderson, the Hollis Brothers, and many others can attest I even do Superhero filmfests before the opening of Superhero movies. Luckily Quentin did the heavy lifting by programming the New Beverly on this one. So, in an hour, I’ll be there, basking in the glory with Paul Preston. The one thing I didn’t realize until a week ago is that this is a REAL double feature. It thought this would be a concept film with two hour ong films, but no. These are the next films from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Two events I’d be excited about anyway, but this is twice the fun all wrapped up in a genre I’m obsessed with anyway. Is it just me or are they just making movies for me these days? Now if only they’d make a live action Transformers…
