    Saw it this afternoon. Quite good, especially the Tarantino segment. It's super-gory, super-sexy, super violent, way over the top...better than "Sin City".

    Cool. I plan on seeing it tomorrow afternoon. Either with a friend or solo.

    What did you think of the trailers between shows?
    I heard that the one Eli Roth did was fucked beyond words.

    Our reviewer said the exact opposite...that Rodriguez's portion was great, but Tarantino's had no point and was just tedious.

    Most reviewers seem to have the opposite opinion.

    The Eli Roth one is siiiiiiiiiick. Rodriguez's trailer is great -- the money quote is "They fucked with the wrong Mexican". Rob Zombie's is pretty cool...topless Nazi werewolf chicks. The one done by the "Shaun of the Dead" guys is funny.

    I didn't think it was tedious. There is a lot of talking in it...there's a long scene in a diner that is kind of like the start of "Reservoir Dogs". But the dialogue is sharp and the interplay between the actresses is cool. The action at the end of it is gripping.

    Our critic liked both segments, although he said it was kind of jarring to go from the frenetic action of the Rodriguez segment to the dialogue-driven Tarantino segment.

    Bold criticism.
    It's one thing to say a movie is bad. That's a matter of opinion.
    It's another to say there's no audience for it. My hunch is this movie will do pretty well, indicating there is an audience.
