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.
