    Finally saw Death Proof what a load of crap.

    Spoilers...

    They have Stuntman Mike who is so cool, killing some of the most annoying girls on the face of the planet. Then they have even more annoying ghetto talking ******s take him out!

    What a load!!! He had more experience, they took him out too easy. Then it ended so stupidly.

    Waste of money! Waste of film.

    Boo!

    I didn't like Death Proof either. Talk about self-indulgent narcissism. Approximately 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. Damn you, Tarantino!

    Some interesting conversation from the other thread, you can disagree but please post valid opinions, as the posters in these posts have so done....

    In REsponse to the above post:

    -Though there's no way a grindhouse movie could ever be anywhere like Planet Terror

    Death Proof sucked. One of the worst movies of 2007. Planet Terror FTW!

    Death Proof was easily the worst movie I saw last year. Most annoying protagonists ever.

    Death Proof was kitsch, but Stuntman Mike wasn't cool. He was a sociopathic killer. Up there with Ted Bundy. He got was he deserved and those ladies did have the chops to do him in. So cool!

    Wasn't that bad.
    I guess he just wanted to emphasize the cowardly nature of serial killers when taken out of their control zone?
    It was a bit too "girl power" for me, I have a tendency to root for the antagonist and find it lame when they are dispatched so easily when the buildup is big.

    I agree, and honestly the girls mostly got on my nerves; particularly the ones from the second half (except Zoe Bell, she didn't bug me actually).

    I didn't like Death 'cause it was one hour of pretty much introducing the bad guy... Nothing from that first movie (that ended up being a lot more interesting that the rest of the film) is connected to the second half, except for Mike... He could have killed a whole different set of girls, on an entire different setting, and it would have been the same for the second half...

    One hour introduction is too long :(

    Death Proof sucked! Tarantino has been on downward slope for years.

    I honestly dont see people's problem with Death Proof, i think its a ****ing great movie that even stands up very to repeat viewings IMO.

    I dont see why so many people dislike it, i personally thinks its a great movie.

    I agree, I hated both Grindhouse movies. Only the action was good but everything else sucked hard.

    I personally find most Tarantino to be pretty bad. He has no sense of originality. He rips something off entirely and then hides behind the wall of "homage." But there is a thin line between homage and plagarism, Tarantino crosses it.

    That being said, neither of the Grindhouse movies really did it for me.
