They're too different, and too long, to be released a double feature

You do realize that each movie was only like 70 minutes in the American version?  With the actual trailers, fake trailers, and both films, it was still only about 3 hours.  That's, for example, about as long as The Two Towers, or Dances with Wolves.  Or a half an hour shorter than the theatrical Return of the King...  Or about 10 minutes longer than the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean.   As an aside, typical double features in the US in the old days were 80-90 minute films.

Too different, maybe, but I really can't see how you can argue they're too long.  It just makes me sad double features are so rare these days (some small non-chain theatres in the US still do them once in a while).  It's nice to actually be able to call an "evening at the movies" just that once in a while.

Seeing Grindhoue in a theater with a bunch of my friends was one of the best times that I've had seeing a film in a theater that I can ever remember.

I actually heard some people griping about how "messed up the picture quality was" and I wanted to tell them that it was supposed to be like that.  People just didn't "get it" as a whole even though it's easily the best thing I've seen so far this year.

loved these films.

Planet Terror. Awesome zombie flick. Love the transitions between scenes and locations. Loved how he used the effect of film degradation for suspense build up. Always appreciate the 10 minute film school where he shows you how to do some of the techniques he uses.

Death Proof. Kurt Russell is bad ass. and so are the girls. very dialogue heavy, but hey, its Tarantino what do you expect? but the action scenes are unbelievable. the chase scene where they had 3 generations of legendary stunt actors in one shot! fabulous. did i mention the girls are hot?

I seriously stood up and clapped after watching each of these films. and i watched them by myself. lol
