QT's Grindhouse Festival still in full effect - Hollywood, CA

The festival is still going and I've gone to most of the shows. I really should re-cap everything since some of these movies are really rare, but we shall see. Someone said that Jason Lee was at the Blood Splattered Bride, Slaughter Hotel, Mary, Mary, Bloody Mary triple bill yesterday, but I did not see him.

Some people at these screenings have never seen these kinds of movies before. If I was a fly on the wall, and I AM a fly on the wall when I go to the films alone, I hear all kinds of dumb shit. But before you take me to be some jaded jerk, realize I'm not as bad as all that, see I despise those that think that just because they watch so many of these movies, that they live in these movies. No, you are not a serial killer, you are a movie nerd. You can laugh at death on the screen, but in real life you would piss yourself. will be shut down on April 5th by the way.

I've been out to QT's Grindhouse Festival a bunch

I'm taking down the site since I don't really see the need to pay for it anymore. I was using it for video hosting. Here, blogging will continue as normal.

Went out to Quentin Tarantino's 2 month Grindhouse Festival for 4 shows in the last 2 weeks. I guess I ought to get into detail about these screenings when I find the time. Of course it's been a blast.

I've got a few movies on the back burner that I wanna trash, some people to ridicule, and more views on inbreeding and why it is -surprise- disgusting. I'd really like to post more, but I'm stressed out about my 16mm film final.

tons of screenings- exploitation / Herzog / Jodorosky / Suspiria

First read about Jenna Bush "comparing" herself to Anne Frank - the article is funny on several levels. I don't think she really compared herself to Anne Frank, but she definitely mentions Anne Frank - so it's half true, right?

now the local news:

As you might know, Quentin Tarantino is programing two months of $7 double and triple features at the New Beverly Cinema, home of the beloved monthly Grindhouse Film Festival. The Newbev site lists the movies, they started on Sunday, with links to each film's imdb page. Highlights include Rolling Thunder, Autopsy/Eyeball double feature, Blood Splattered Bride, and so much more.

Will Larry ever forgive me for not watching his bootleg Holy Mountain videotape he lent me a few years back? No. But at least i can see it on the big screen March 20th - March 22nd at the Nuart. This run follows 4 days of Jodorowsky's El Topo.

Warner Herzog in person at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, March 22nd, 23rd, 24th, and 25th with screenings of Nosferatu, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Grizzly Man, and more, three of the nights being double features.

Night Tide starring Dennis Hopper at the Egyptian, Friday, March 30th.

Suspiria at the Nuart, midnight, 4/13.

Did I get carried away with last night's post?? - about the Wrong Turn family

You could accuse me of posting drunk... but no.

This new google/blogger entity is acting all fucked up, like it has a pair of parents who are brother and sister themselves. I really wanted to post this little observation last night...

inbreeding fucked up weirdos not just for the Wrong Turn set...

This fucked up brother and sister are a couple - they have kids - two out of four are fucked up. They just want to live normal lives, but that ain't gonna happen - it's an absurd proposal. You know, it's bad enough when anyone has kids, but brother and sister breeding FOUR times! Come on, they are disgusting.

I'm all for sexual freedom of gays and lesbians. These two, the incesest couple, are gonna set those movements back and give the conservatives ammo to propose all sorts of laws. Fortunately the couple live in Germany. Maybe they can teach their own kids to fuck each other too. It's only right and natural.

They have two kids that suffer from defects. Hmmmm, big surprise.

....but they love each other....

Blood and Chocolate rebuttal

I know it's old news, but I love it when a blog takes issue with something I wrote. Recently I discovered this rebuttal to my Blood and Chocolate post "audiences laughing their asses off when title 'Blood and Chocolate' hits the screen during preview" - the first of several posts I wrote on that movie. The article that quotes me extensively is from the feminist blog The True Confessions of an Hourly Bookseller and is titled "Synergy and Sexism Mess Up Blood and Chocolate Marketing" - though I do not think this post implies that my writing on the movie is sexist.

Basically her point is that the title is not confusing to the targeted market - teenage girls. I considered the market to be all teens. In the end I think the debate can only be settled by box office receipts. I will quote wikipedia on the matter. "The movie was a box office bomb, taking in only $2.1 million in the United States on its opening weekend and dropping out of the top 20 grossing movies in only its second week of release."

I'd also like to note that upon the weekend of the release they changed the poster in the newsprint ads, obviously to make audiences 'get it'. Shown here with the old above the new.
