Hello and welcome to my 5th blog about the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez film Grindhouse.

I'll start off by saying i'm a huge Tarantino fan and i'll watch anything he has his name attached to.

With that out of the way you could imagine my excitement when I first saw the DEATH PROOF trailer, to me it looked original and a lot of fun.

I bought a cinema ticket on the first day of release and sat in anticipation through the trailers of other films thinking the wait will be worth it.

The film came on and I sat watching this rather talky film listening to the actors talk about what teenage women talk about on the back of a bus here in Middlesbrough.

I did enjoy it, but not as much as I did PULP FICTION, KILL BILL etc.

Now here is where I get really annoyed and let out a huge rant so please read on if you want to.

What really annoys me is that I had heard GRINDHOUSE was going to be 2 films back to back (PLANET TERROR & DEATH PROOF). I was expecting a 3 hr plus film for my 6 pound ticket.

No what I got was some half thought out excuse that because it bombed in the US we UK residents get one film and another 2 or 3 months later.

I don't care that it bombed in the US I think that they should have gave us what it promised (2 films back to back).

Everyone knows that PLANET TERROR was the better film and stayed true to the Grindhouse feel - grainy film reels, missing film reals, scratches, jumps in music etc all the way through.

Death Proof on the other hand had the first half with grainy film reels, missing film reals, scratches, jumps in music, then the second half nice and clear.

Even the mobile phones were up to date.

So why do we have to suffer the split the film in half just because the US customers didn't get the idea.

I hate the fact that they expected us to pay twice for the same film. Here in Middlesbrough PLANET TERROR didn't get a cinema release it went straight to dvd missing all but one fake trailer, if the film is advertised as GRINDHOUSE, sell the dvd with 4 discs (2 dvd edition of Death Proof & 2 disc edition of Planet Terror) and include all the fake trailers in the special features DVD or before each film.

I know the Grindhouse 6 dvd edition is out in Japan but that's not the point, my point is bring it out here how it should be: GRINDHOUSE with Planet Terror and Death Proof back to back with all the fake trailers how it was advertised.

Us UK residents shouldn't get the short end of the stick because US residents didn't get it.

Thank you for reading.
