Save your time, skip this movie
If you like stupid comedies and bad horror movies, Planet Terror might be the movie for you. I don’t like stupid comedies nor any kind of horror movie, so I agreed to watch it for Bruce Willis. If, like me, you watch it for Bruce Willis, here’s a tip: watch the movie until you see Bruce’s first 60 second scene … then fast forward to the end and watch his second, and last, 60 second scene. You won’t miss anything in middle. Trust me.
A much better movie (if you are trying to satisfy a bad horror need when you hate the genre) is From Dusk Till Dawn. George Clooney and Juliette Lewis are actually in the movie. It’s not bad … if you’re into that kind of dark horror movie. It might even be watchable if you hate horror movies.
They are both directed by Robert Rodriguez – I really liked the book about his story about how he became a director. I just realized I never blogged about it! In Rebel without a Crew: Or How a 23-Year-Old Filmmaker With $7,000 Became a Hollywood Player, Robert Rodriguez writes about how he becomes a movie director by just doing it. He makes home movies with his brothers and sisters and no budgets. It’s a good story even if you have no desire to ever become a movie director.
