Faves: Grindhouse

So maybe a double-feature tribute to '70's B movies wasn't such a good idea.  The film got mixed reviews and a relativly poor box-office reception.  Between foreign markets and DVD, the thing may have broke even.  The two movies themselves are very uneven.  But they have their moments.  What makes this a winning package, to me at least, is the trailers.  Especially the one for Machete.  This is an example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.
