Description

For Austin's hottest DJ, Jungle Julia (Sydney Tamiia Poitier), dusk offers an opportunity to unwind with two of her closest friends, Shanna and Arlene (Jordan Ladd and Vanessa Ferlito). This three fox posse sets out into the night, turning heads from Guero's to the Texas Chili Parlor. Not all of the attention is innocent: Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), a scarred, weathered rebel who leers from behind the wheel of his muscle car. As the girls settle into their beers, Mike's weapon, a white-hot juggernaut, revs just feet away…

  • Huge disappointment

    Tons of mindless rambling that does not progress the plot, scenes that drag on and on.
  • Action sequences are few and far

    They spent a lot of time dealing with the first three characters to give you a sense of them. Then they spend more time with the new three. Too much dialogue between very short action sequences. It felt like each action sequence was 10 minutes. So 20 minutes action and an hour of talking.

    7/10 When this came out everybody thought it was a total misfire, those people just couldn’t think to let it sink in. This movie is almost epic in scope, switching to a new set of girls halfway through, switching to a different location, so it makes you ask yourself: “Why did Tarantino set up the Jungle Julia crowd with so much talking?” Well, the answer is simple: He was self indulgent. People forget that Tarantino is probably the most self indulgent filmmaker out there, so of course this was going to have beautiful women with bare feet talking about random things interspersed with sudden and vicious acts of bloody violence. What else are you expecting going into a movie like this? Okay, enough rambling, lets go back to the movie. The first half of the movie centers around the Jungle Julia crew, a group of true Tarantino babes led by Austin DJ Jungle Julia. Kurt Russel’s “Stuntman Mike” realizes that they are his next prey. I won’t spoil anything else. By the second half, the grind house look is thrown out the window, and replaced with a highly saturated color scheme, with the second set of girls driving a car that resembles The Bride’s jumpsuit. Try to catch all the Kill Bill references shoved in there. A new group of girls, among them is Zoe Bell, playing herself, face up against Mike in an epic car chase across farmland. Now lets address the elephant in the room, the talking. I know, I know, it seems soooooo self indulgent. And yes, I know how long that bar scene lasts (maybe 15 minutes). But the entire bar scene is dedicated to American pop culture, you see, Jungle Julia isn’t the real Dj in the room, Tarantino is. He samples from decades of American cinema and music and stuffs it all into one room. The set is meticulously designed, and the music playing from the Jukebox more than helps to set the mood. This movie certainly isn’t for everybody, I mean, some critics have torn it limb from limb. For me, this might be one of my favorite Tarantino movies, I mean, this movie knocked me completely sideways. Here’s my list of Tarantino movies ranked: 9:JACKIE BROWN 8:DEATH PROOF (I LIKE IT, A LOT MORE THAN OTHER PEOPLE, BUT I DO ADMIT IT'S ONE OF HIS WEAKEST) 7:KILL BILL, VOL 2 6:RESEVOIR DOGS 5:DJANGO UNCHAINED 4:INGLORIOUS BASTERDS 3:KILL BILL, VOL 1 2:THE HATEFUL EIGHT 1:PULP FICTION Yea, The Hateful Eight was awesome. A brilliant, gross, sometimes horrific foray into the mind of Tarantino.

    BORING! This movie isn’t even worth one star. It is the dumbest movie I have ever seen! Don’t waste your money! As for Quentin Tarantino, he is certainly, without question, the most grossly overrated director in Hollywood! What a joke!
  • Hands down my new favorite movie!

    This is one of the most original movies I have ever watched. So awesome. Kurt Russel as usual-delivers. What a terrific actor.

    Planet Terror & Death Proof are great but the blu ray is the only way to experience these films.
  • Dialog boring but action part kickass

    Yes the whole movie was just girls talking! But sooner or later it grabs your attention! Also don't miss the best car chase scene at the end! It's kickass!
