Well of course they did. They stated it many times in various horror and other genre publications. The films were shot complete and later chunks were removed for the "missing reels"

??
if that's true, you're right. But I'm sorry I cannot believe you on that point... Look at PT: it's obvious that the missing reel is a JOKE in this movie. The biggest part of the movie (big fight against zombies, sheriff getting shot, sex scene, explaination about "El Rey"...) takes place during the missing reel... RR never shot that scene, and everybody in the audience, even the stupidest teenager you can find will never believe they're actually IS a missing reel somewhere...

So, once again, may be "no argument can be made in PT and DP's defense", but either their is no argument against them so far, either I still cannot read.

I'm by no means an expert on explotation cinema and I clearly understand AC's point. I don't think an argument can be made in PT and DP's defense.

There was no point made by AC, at least I didn't read any. If it was made sometimes before I don't have the time to search through 25+ pages of this thread to find it. Anyway, that is not even important, because I agree with what he said.

I don't know anymore, I lost track of what we were discussing. I was about to write something but it slipped my mind.

Though I can guess that no matter what the subject of the discussion is, you're probably writing nonsense, as usual.

I am only telling you what was stated by them in various interviews. I honestly do not care about a "missing reel" because this movie sucks with, or without it.

Up for pre-order at last: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003VMFWYI?

Looks like the correct AR has been restored, which is good. Watching the faux John Carpenter stuff in anything less than 'scope was B.S.

Because DP is not! And countless others who KNOW WHAT THOSE MOVIES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WILL TELL YOU THE SAME THING. Again, people don't READ obviously.....

PLANET TERROR was not much better, but it came the closest to emulating that type of film.

Outside of MAYBE ten minutes of delivering on what the title promises, DP is still left with 100 minutes of QT's usual self absorbed referential yappin' to let the audience know once more that he knows about obscurities that the average person doesn't know and really doesn't give two shits about. I didn't like the movie, you obviously did. I didn't even pay to see it in the theater because it looked like crap from the commercial and I had a feeling it was gonna bomb because those kinds of films are a niche and the generation today isn't interested in anything over ten years old. They were gambling on Q's name alone and it didn't work. If you want to see what a REAL exploitation movie should be (then again, maybe you don't), check out some of these. Some are classics, some are good, some are average to mediocre and some are just plain bad, but most are remembered for certain qualities....

I don't remember the specifics of the argument but QT and RR's movies didn't capture the spirit of those movies in the way that something like The Devil's Rejects succeeded in doing.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

I fully agree, and I don't think they ever intended to do so Smiley These two Grindhouse movies are movies for hipsters... which isn't a bad thing at all.

Yeah, real Grindhouse films don't interest me at all. These send-ups of the genre, though, I find entertaining.
