    And TD, I'm not arguing about Russell . . . he was a riot. But the fuse before the explosion was SOOOOOO long, and the dead spots were SOOOOOOO dead . . .

    I read recently that Russell was Quentin's third choice to play the role after Mickey Rourke and Ving Rhames turned it down.

    I could see Rourke, but not Rhames.

    Since BitterYoungDickhead can revive old movie threads, so can I.

    Just saw both movies yesterday. Planet Terror was OK, but Death Proof absolutely kicked ass.

    Death Proof definitely suffered from Tarantino's dialogue diarrhea, but to me the car chase was more than enough payoff. I think that was one of the best car chase scenes in movie history. Pitch-perfect and original in an area where you think it's all been done before.

    so how did they do the fake previews for the dvds?

    They didn't, which pissed me off. They only had Machete.

    So they did release the DVDs separately?

    I still haven't seen either, in part because three hours is way too fucking long to sit through a movie and it was also only in theaters for about three weeks...

    Tarantino is brilliant, but he needs to learn not to alienate his audience... Nobody wants to sit through a three-hour film.

    Deathproof isn't 3 hours. I think it's more like 1 1/2 hours. It's worth a rent if you're a skeptic.

    And I would have gladly sat through Kill Bill if they had left it as the three-plus hour epic is was meant to be.
