Yeah, yeah, yeah there's no lossless audio boo hoo. It does suck that this feature is missing but with all things considered, the audio on this blu ray is adequate. The video quality is terrific and there is no shortage of extras, clocking in around 3 hours of interviews, commentary and making-of specials. With the exception of the decision to not include two extra discs with the extended versions of both films, this is a nearly perfect package. For the Amazon price, thats a damn fine deal.

And the films themselves are super fun in their own right. Planet Terror is a breakneck melding of Day of the Dead with John Carpenter's mood and sensibilities. Death Proof is like Black Christmas or Sleepaway Camp mixed with Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!. It's the ultimate party movie - good when mixed with a lot of friends and a lot of beer. I just love the world that Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez create here, it feels like an expansion of what they were trying to do with "From Dusk Till Dawn". If that movie was their haiku to trash cinema than Grindhouse is their epic poem.

For a more in-depth critical look at how I feel about Grindhouse, check out Walter Chaw's review at Film Freak Central (or google "Grindhouse Film Freak Central").

Anyway, I highly recommend this great blu ray release!

It seems you can never make people happy. When these movies were first released, consumers were upset that the movies were too long, had too much talking, etc. They were extended releases.

Then, they release a theatrical version and people are upset that scenes they remembered from watching the old DVDs are gone!

The release is great. The extras are great. The movies are great. Stop complaining; if you want extended cuts, look for another version. If you want the original movies as they were shown in the theater, in their original cuts, buy this!

this bluray is THE definitive collection of all that is "grindhouse". nothing is left out..even commentaries for the fake trailers! these films were works of love and this set shows it. i had bought the separate extended dvds..but NO FAKE TRAILERS! this seems like dimension shat all over fans just like lord of the rings before the extended dropped; or george lucas whenever he double dips...but now... i have the complete experience! these are the original untampered theatrical editions...the extended cut that are availiable are intersting; but i usually prefer the director's version a'la "kingdom of heaven" (director's cut a must!).. this set is chock full of goodies that reflect the complete passion of the filmakers! enjoy.

Should have been released in this format all along, as that's how it was seen in theaters. THEN, they could have gone back and released each film separately, with new bonus material. Anyway, I loved the movies, the trailers, everything. I already got the separate releases for Planet Terror and Death Proof, and found them very cheaply, so I saw this in the theater (at a drive-in theater, actually!!!) and on DVD already. But looking forward to the new bonus material that I have not seen yet.

Damn you Weinstein bros! I bought these 2 movies seperately then eventually bought this version, which is what I remember from the movie theater. If you don't like Grindhouse, I think it's because you just don't get it. I like the older flicks like Maniac, Zombie, House by the Cemetary, etc, you get the jist. The fake trailers, finally, they had been included in the packaging. This was just all around fun.
At first, you might be put off at DeathProof but the more you watch it, it will grow on you. You'll pick up on the little nuances before it turns gonzo in the last reel. Before he gets to the last victims, it was actually fun to watch Stuntman Mike interact with his victims.
Planet Terror, what really needs to be said about this, really? It's an awesome zombie/apocolypse flick and Fergie is looking as delish as always, Damn you Josh Duhamel!!!! And let us not forget, Cherry cuz she's just Cherry.
Buy it, love it and rewatch it again and again.
