B-Movie Monday: Tarantino and Rodriguez's Grindhouse Turns 3

Tomorrow is April 6, three years since Grindhouse was released in theaters. After Easter dinner on April 8 I want to the cinema to enjoy this 3+ hour epic. It was made up of two movies Planet Terror and Death Proof, and four fake grindhouse trailers. It was a riot.

Enjoy some Grindhouse

Out of the two movies, I love Planet Terror. For the horror fan of today, there's plenty of blood, babes, and belly laughs. For fans of zombie movies from the 70s and 80s like me, Planet Terror has plenty of references for us. Many scenes and concepts are homages to movies like Hell of the Living Dead, Zombie, and Nightmare City. Rodriguez has done the tributes in such a way that doesn't overwhelm the movie.

Join me next Monday for another installment of B-Movie Monday!
