So, what are you thankful for this holiday?
I know one thing I’m going to be thankful for the rest of my life: that five years ago, we got to see Grindhouse opening night, in the biggest single-screen theater in Seattle, with one of the coolest, most fun audiences I’ve had the pleasure be part of to watch a movie with my entire life.
When this Eli Roth-directed trailer for a film that doesn’t exist came on between Planet Terror and Deathproof, we all HOWLED through the entire thing (one of many highlights of the evening). I’d already seen the “trailer” on the Grindhouse website, so I knew the trampoline scene was coming, but it still got a loud, “HOAH!” out of me –and for once, the rest of the theater drowned me out (it’s a rare occasion that I wish would happen more often). Roth said he had plans to make the movie, but so far, only Robert Rodruiguez delivered on his promise to make his trailer, Machete, into a feature-length film. There really weren’t any leftovers …but this trailer will definitely bring on the stuffing.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
