I thought it was terrible. I did think the story (especially the ending) was clever, but the movie went down way too many "bunny holes" for me. I wonder how many of the 2:40 minutes were watching Brad Pitt driving a car. Zzzzzzz. Plus there were sections of the movie I thought were totally irrelevant. Maybe the director was trying to paint a more complete picture of that era of Hollywood. But for me... Meh... I could do without it.

I have the same reaction. You kind of have to be a movie lover to get all of the stuff Tarantino throws into the film.

Thumbs up

Saw it again at the Barnstorm which has had a problem because of a water line break or something like since Monday. I went on $5 Tuesdays.

Had wanted to go see the new Gerald Butler movie but it was sold out by the time I got there.

It did get better with a 2nd viewing and I could take a potty break because I had seen it before.

Some of the same people seem to be cropping up in many Quentin Tarantino movies. From Kill Bill and Kill Bill 2 to The Hateful Eight the players -- or a few of them-- keep popping up. Quentin Tarantino - Rotten Tomatoes

Death Proof (2007) - Rotten Tomatoes

I happen to love movies and especially the works of directors who also seem to share the same passion of film. Tarantino knows movies extremely well and they are a lot of Easter eggs in his movies.

It was fairly crowded for having been open for a few weeks.

I may see this one a third time in the theater and will definitely buy the Blu-Ray/DVD.

I would love to see it next time in 70mm. A friend of mine saw that format in Chicago and said it was unbelievable. Unfortunately, the other theaters that have it are in California, Canada, and New York. Good old celluloid is pretty rare.

Wait until the Academy Awards; so many nomination possibilites.

I would assume it will get a lot of Oscar nominations. Maybe even one for Brad Pitt.
