Skyler's Review: 
What can I even say about this movie? It is a 191 minute tome that is almost Cage free. Grindhouse is a double feature with some fake movie trailers in between. This is supposed to be artistic and that other artsy fartsy biz. The playbill looks like this:


  • Full movies
    1. Planet Terror (No Nicolas Cage)
    2. Deathproof (No Nicolas Cage)
  • Fake movie trailers
    1. Machete (No Nicolas Cage)
    2. Werewolf Women of the SS  (Nicolas Cage for 16 seconds)
    3. Don't (No Nicolas Cage)
    4. Thanksgiving (No Nicolas Cage)
    5. Hobo with a Shotgun (No Nicolas Cage)

So essentially there is 190 minutes of crap with 16 seconds of gold in the middle. Don't get me wrong, the chick from Planet Terror is pretty hot, I just would have rather have seen Cage play Kurt Russell's character in Deathproof. It would have increased my overall viewing experience. 


So watch this clip and save yourself 3 hours of movie. Unless you are completing the A Year In the CAGE challenge, of course.

Hope you enjoy the 3.5 hrs of grindhouse. The 10 seconds of Cage will be totally worth it.
