Crop And Save
Tarantino had a lot of fun making this movie! Unfortunately it was a lot less fun to watch it. While Grindhouse does have classic one-liners and great visual effects, that is also the movie's sum total. Plot is thin and hackneyed, characters are under developed and absurd, and I'm sad to say I was bored throughout.
While I am a big fan of both the directors and actors, the plot and dialogue severely let them down. To those who rate the movie so highly, I can only imagine you were stoned, or else stared so deeply through the screen that you imagined something of substance shining back.
If indeed Grindhouse is 'art' rather than the B-movie it appeared, then, simply put, I do not get it.
What a Girl Wants (2003)
Tacky and shallow
It was this film that led me to register with IMDb, simply to warn people from watching it.
The parts are acted well, but the characters are so thin and 1-dimensional you could cut yourself if you looked too closely. Which, if you have any sense, you will not. The film is actually produced very well. There are fantastic camera shots, suitable music, and the roles are well cast. It is unfortunate then that the story, dialogue and characters are artless to the point of utter frustration.
You have been warned.
