From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
well, what just happened?
Somehow I had not heard about this movie by Rodriguez and Tarantino, and I did not read anything about it before I started watching it. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Now, I am a big fan of Tarantino and a slightly lesser fan of Rodriguez but I love Sin City and Planet Terror among others.
The First hour of the movie felt to me like a typical Tarantino movie, with witty and clever dialogue, a lot of violence, and in this case a hostage situation. I thought to myself... YESSS! I am totally going to enjoy this movie, and I sure did........
Then our characters arrive at a bar called the Titty Twister,(about and hour into the movie) and I did not expect the rest of the movie to take place there. But then out of no where.... VAMPIRES! And nothing but a couple of laughs and vampire slaying till the end credits roll.
We never know why the vampires are there, I guess its suppose to be just... One of those things, it can happen to anyone hah!
I think I might have enjoyed this movie for what it is, had I known beforehand this was i vampire movie. I just feel like they abandoned the story line of the first half when the vampires came. And I was in no way prepared.
Overall, a great first half, brought down in my opinion by the shallow vampire packed second half.
Well, I should have known I guess, this being a Rodriguez film.
Im still giving the movie a 7/10 just because of the first half, could have gotten a higher grade had it gone in a different direction.
