‘Grindhouse’ churns out classic-action cheese
The difference in the two films is that Rodriguez is looking at a grindhouse film from the outside, playing with it, even capitalizing on the somewhat serious creative undercurrent and social zeitgeist that ran through many such films.
Tarantino, though, seems to actually climb inside the grindhouse form, embracing its myriad faults — way, way too much filler dialogue, aimless story tangents, ultra-lengthy build-up, nonsensical plot, even sub-par acting. He’s made a weak film with moments of inspiration about weak films with moments of inspiration.
