A: What is all the reasons I’ll watch the new QT / RR collaboration: Grindhouse.
Anyone who doesn’t realize how wonderful the inside jokes are in Quention Tarantino (QT) and Robert Rodriguez (RR) films are, really need to watch Pulp Fiction, Sin City, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Four Rooms and Reservoir Dogs. Back-to-back. With intermission and popcorn preferably on a large-screen tv in surround-sound. One must keep in mind that Quentin is the king of pop-culture so there will be references all over it of signature inside-jokes to his fans. But if you are not familiar, I thought I’d make a list of a few that you could also cross-reference with imdb.com if you so choose:
- Red Apple Cigarettes
- Tex-Mex references
- bare feet
- katana / samurai swords
- car trunk camera shot
- black skinny ties, white shirts, black suit
- gorgeous cars (i.e. Pussy Wagon, cherry-red convertible)
- Yummy Mummy & Fruit Brute cereals (both discontinued monster series)
- Quentin cameos
It’s a gas to see what else they may come up with in the course of this now, double-feature. So hold onto your seats, kiddies…it’s gonna be a fun ride.
If you spot any Quentin-Rodriguez-esque add-ons let me know. I love what they both come up with. See ya in the movies!
