  • Death Proof | Shiny Shelf
    observed well written dialogue delivered at a laid back pace by a skilfully assembled ensemble cast Rose McGowan Rosario Dawson Sydney Poitier and instant star Zoe Bell producing oodles of character moments There s also plenty of Tarantino s own brand of mucky invasive reality and lots of charm Tarantino once said that Jackie Brown was a hang out movie like Rio Bravo He meant that in the sense that you watched it to hang out with the characters and Death Proof has much the same appeal It might be crass and deliberately crude in its subject matter but there s an underlying sweetness to the people we encounter in this movie that means you want to watche them chat even Russell s scarred and manic murderer has a gentle contemplative sadness to him at times I know that sounds silly but it s true What separates Tarantino from Rodriguez and indeed his spins on items from their shared cultural past is his sheer ability to transform that which he processes Here he sweeps up the trash off of the grindhouse floor and turns it into an oddly meditative piece themes such as differing male and female perceptions of the same event the role of the car in American culture and the concept of the frontier snake through the picture like seams of precious metal in rock ever present usually visible increasing the value of what we re seeing through the simple fact of their presence The first half of the film particularly seems to instinctively understand that most of the great American movies of the seventies and many of the not so great ones too are principally about disgust and that s a motif which is introduced visually and then slowly removed along with the affected mistakes focusing errors film jumps mislaid sound both disappearing entirely after the accidental monochrome reel which also happens to be the point in the film where the new female protagonists take control of the narrative and their own fates Oddly reminiscent of underrated seventies films like Barbara Foden s marvellous feminist road movie Wanda Death Proof is obviously going to reward repeat viewings and outlive just about every one of its critics including me And that s as it should be Line Break By Jim Smith Share Death Proof Tags Grindhouse Movies Quentin Tarantino Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise

  • Frank Miller’s Sin City | Shiny Shelf
    gruesome in car conversation between Clive Owen s Dwight and Benicio del Toro s Jackie Boy is brief and slots seamlessly into the film were it not for the screen credit his involvement would not be noticeable Of the three main sections Dwight and Jackie Boy s story falls in the middle quality wise being a nicely muddled tale which abruptly changes focus from tale of revenge on misogyny to a corpse disposal thriller to a crime war shoot em up Bottom of the barrel is Bruce Willis story of good cop Hartigan s bid for revenge against those who framed him This is let down by Willis looking far younger than the sixty something years required by the character and by a seriously dodgy sub plot featuring Jessica Alba as the woman rescued by Hartigan as an eight year old girl who now bears an ahem affection towards him Undeniably the strongest section is the tale of Mickey Rourke s Marv a bulldozer of a man ploughing his way through Sin City s underworld in search of his lover s killer In fact it s so good that the other two segments can seem a little slow by comparison That said all are bruisingly paced and contain enough visceral bangs and crashes for the most gore hungry of viewers indeed so bloody is it in places that it s worth a warning for those less predisposed to such scenes The script is suitably laconic though rarely lives up to the intense visuals More pulp than classic Sin City is flawed but also great fun if you re a fan of fearsomely violent noir One word of caution an extended cut is on the cards so it may be worth holding on a while before shelling out for this much more basic release a making of documentary is the only special feature it boasts Buy Sin City from Amazon Line Break By Stephen Lavington Share Frank Miller s Sin City Tags Bruce Willis DVD Frank Miller Jessica Alba Mickey Rourke Quentin Tarantino Robert Rodriguez Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar
