Planet Terror

Is awesome. Saw it at the Cameo thanks to Filmsoc, as a late showing (with free cup-cakes!). I’d previously seen the other half of Grindhouse, Tarantino’s Death-Proof, which was a decent film, but not something I was thrilled by – but Robert Rodriguez’s offering is throughly inspired, from the very first second. There’s a spoof trailer which is outstanding, a continuous low-fi look, gratuitous gore, homages to countless genre films, assorted great actors, and some inspired writing. It’s not intellectual or world-changing in the slightest, but it’s terrific fun for every single second.
