In the scene at Guero's restaurant, the girls drink margaritas out of traditional stemmed margarita glasses. The real Guero's serves margaritas in standard round glasses. Also, although the exteriors were filmed on location at the real-life Guero's, the soundstage-shot interiors do not match any part of the real Guero's. See more »

I don't understand why, but this is the film of the year for me
I can't figure this out, and I sincerely apologise if this is a useless review but Tarantino has done it again.
I find it difficult to explain why this film hit the spot when so many others did not. Tarantino definitely has a handle on reality, and doesn't need to create artificial story lines and make believe monsters to thrill and intrigue his audience. This is a film that illustrates our everyday idiosyncrasies and shows us both the real, yet dark side of humanity, and shows us that real life is far more exciting and intriguing than fantasy.
The dialogue between characters was funny, real, and interesting. Bringing together a variety of different characters (eg cheerleader, successful celebrity, ghetto girlie etc), he illustrates the common traits of the human psychology that we all pretend don't exist. Most other films take us into unrealistic fantasy, Tarantino knows reality is far more exciting!
Kurt Russell surpassed himself. He's been absent for too long, and his part in Death Proof leaves me wanting to see more from him. His acting was superb and I hope this film relights his career and we see more from him soon.
I definitely saw touches of Pulp Fiction in this film, but in a subtly different way.
Cinematography was awesome, and the use of weird and wonderful camera techniques made this film more than just interesting.
When it comes to films I'm a tough critic, I'm disappointed far more than I'm surprised so giving a 10 out of 10 for me is very unusual.
This is a clever, interesting, and unusual film that will appeal to serious lovers of movies. Tarantino is both a movie scholar and genius. I bow before you Quentin and hope desperately to see more like this.
Many thanks ... Shaun
