Grindhouse

 (2007)

Grindhouse Blu-ray delivers stunning video and solid audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Robert Rodriguez & Quentin Tarantino wrote and directed two full length feature horror movies put together as a two film feature including fake trailers in between movies.

'Planet Terror' - Robert Rodriguez's tale about two doctors that find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by sores. Among the wounded is Cherry, a dancer whose leg was ripped from her body. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and her ex- boyfriend Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night.

'Death Proof' - Quentin Tarantino's tale about Austin's hottest DJ, Jungle Julia, who sets out into the night to unwind with her two friends Shanna and Arlene. Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike, a scarred rebel leering from behind the wheel of his muscle car, revving just feet away.

For more about Grindhouse and the Grindhouse Blu-ray release, see Grindhouse Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Rose McGowan, Bruce Willis, Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson, Vanessa Ferlito, Sydney Tamiia Poitier
Directors: Robert Rodríguez (I), Quentin Tarantino, Rob Zombie, Edgar Wright, Eli Roth

Grindhouse Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

How does one properly analyze a film which is so heavily post-processed to make it look like it's badly damaged? Grindhouse finally arrives in its original theatrical cut with an AVC encoded image in 1080p and a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The only real question here is, does this Blu-ray accurately represent the directors' visions and the way the film actually looked in theaters? And the answer is a resounding yes. Rodriguez and, to a somewhat lesser extent, Tarantino have filled this film with scratches, flecks, pops, missing reels, missing frames and other "fun stuff" to help recreate the less than pristine screenings of second (or third, or fourth) run films back in the day. There's also intentionally overdone grain, low contrast and about everything else videophiles tend to complain about, offered here in unapologetic abundance. Death Proof, despite its "missing reel" and the kind of funny "stuttering" missing/repeated frame in the early bar sequence, looks a bit better than Planet Terror, but that is inarguably by design. Both of these films sport typically lurid color, redolent of American International's mid-60s schlockfests, and it's offered here in rich and gooey saturation. Detail is impressive, given the self-imposed limits the filmmakers were working under. Grindhouse must simply be taken on its own terms, warts (festering or otherwise) and all. This Blu-ray offers a near perfect recreation of what the film is supposed to look like, and that really should be all that matters.


Grindhouse Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Yes, you heard right (pun intended), Grindhouse is being presented on Blu-ray without lossless audio. Yes, it's lamentable, and, yes, it would have been better with a lossless track. But why don't we cut some slack and just say that the Dolby Digital 5.1 448kbps mix is retro, like the film itself. The fact is, despite the absence of thundering lows and blistering highs a lossless track would have offered, this is a pretty darned immersive piece of sound mixing, one which certainly does not have the complete range and power audiophiles would want, but one which for the most part does exceedingly well on its own lossy, low bitrate terms. Sound effects, especially in Planet Terror, are all over the map, soundfield wise, and that's a good thing. From the rat-a-tat of machine gun fire, to the weird oozing sounds the festering blisters make, surround channels are fully engaged and often filled to the brim with inventive effects. That said, Planet Terror never sounds overly busy, and dialogue is always well mixed into the soundscape. Rodriguez' retro score also lends a great supporting hand, and sounds cheesily perfect. Death Proof is a harder nut to crack, if only because there's so damned much talking to get through. As such, this is front-centric track, until the first crash scene, and then, later, the two chase sequences come into play. During those action segments, we get some great immersive effects, with roaring engines, and the girls' frightened cries spilling in from the surrounds. The bottom line is, obviously a lossless track would have been a better choice here, especially for Planet Terror. But is it a deal killer to have "only" a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix? Personally, I don't think so.
