Death Proof (Quentin Tarantino, 2007)

deathproofxWatched this for the sole reason Ramona Flowers is in it. Tried to watch it before, but I couldn’t get past through the first half, when all the characters speak in thick Tarantino accent.

It’s not hard to like Tarantino movies; the guy loves music—maybe not as much as he loves certain kind of movies—and he peppers his movies with tunes that sound old and fresh at the same time. He makes his characters sing to and talk about music, even dance to them with the usual Tarantino-esque results. But once you get to see his movies, most of his characters starts to bleed into each other, or more like you’ll hear Tarantino speaks from each of the character’s mouth—there’s very little variation.

Turns out, the first half, about Jungle Julia and her friends, is the decent half of this movie; as Tarantino indulges yet again in a movie about making movies in the second half. Too bad, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is stuck in the second half. Worse, she’s left out of the final car chase sequence when Zoe Bell and her friends fight back and beat Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell).
