before the malls,
movie theaters in Avenida Rizal, Quiapo, & Recto
showed back-to-back features?
Mostly those were the second-run films,
and a lot of them were B-movies.
A lot of bang for the buck for a few bucks!
In exactly that same spirit,
kindred cinematic spirits,
Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez
QT's Death Proof D/W RR's Planet Terror,
primarily due to it's absurdly-long running time,
ground to a halt at the U.S. Box Office.
including the Philippines,
the films were shown separately,
which dissipated the essence of the Grindhouse.
both films hardly made an impact here,
and only the QT/RR fanboys flocked to the dismembered flicks.
thanks to the magic of DVD,
you can enjoy the mastery and majesty
of these homages to cheesy 1970s B-movies
as they were meant to be seen:
