Hey, you can like this movie or not. But don't fuckin crucify anyone just because they bring up some negative things. I thought Dusk til Dawn was pretty decent until right after the first vampire fight scene, after that it just seemed rushed and didn't hold my interest. I think maybe if RR had edited it a little better and had the vamp scenes come earlier, it could have been a better movie. It is still worth renting, even tho it's not the greatest movie ever.

Whether the second half is shit or not, the movie is worth to own IMO because of the awesome first half. You can't beat Richie Gecko.

i thought the asian kid and the girl would probably have broken down and gave up, its too much stress on a person to realize there are vampires everywhere all of a sudden.  i think they would have been sheltered too much all their lives.   and kietel's sudden reconciliation with God seemed too forced, just didnt see it happening while hes out shooting vampires
have you ever watched a movie?? how come you didnt complain when the bride would chop off a head and a shit load of blood would gush out?? huh? why not? its a movie. RR and QT were making a point. these normal people all of a sudden are badass vampire killers. its supposed to be humourous
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! You bastard!

I actually like the 2nd half more then the first. I can take gore over talking any ol day-






-of the fuckin week. And Buono, I'm bitching at the stupid motherfuckers who act as if they didn't even know there was a fuckin vampire in this film. Not that fact that they didn't like the second half. Just the fact that they were ignorant to the (HUGE) fact that this was a fuckin vampire movie.

The only scene out of the whole film I find cheesy scene is where Sex Machine changes into a vampire. Other than that FDTD is a fun film to watch.  :)

why did he want it to come off that way?

Because it was an homage to the gore/explotation films from the 70's. Mainly a tribute to directors like Lucio Fulci, George Romero and to a lesser extent Bruno Mattei. They all made cheesyass zombie gore films from the late 70's into the early 80's. They contained an over-the-top amount of gore and cheesy themes to go along with it.

I didn't mind the cheesy aspects too much. I just felt that it takes so long for the vampires to finally appear, that the rest of the movie feels rushed.

I didn't think it felt rushed. But that's obviously the gorehound part of me talking  :P

i dont recognize those directors, but im sure they wouldnt have dont their films the same way if they had the same speical effets we have today.   



Same with Star Wars and the technology they had back then. Even though the special effect were cheesy for Star Wars we still appreciate it right? We don't rag on the original trilogy because the SFX sux do we? Well, I kinda do, but that just me. Anyway you see my point here

Hey, the special effects for Star Wars were top notch back then. I don't know what you talkin bout. And they still kick ass.

you forgot to quote "and they still kick ass." you said that the FX suck, but i said they they still rule. so we weren't exactly agreeing, homey  :-/

But if they made it with the best effects possible it would be just like every other vampire movie. What else is there to say, man? QT and RR made it cheese to make a homage to those 70's horror flicks...you know....what Bullet said.

If you've never seen them, then you have no legitimate arguement against QT and RR's stylistic effects in this movie. I haven't seen them either, but at least I like it, so nobody gotz shit on me..

Re: Great movie until.............

Post by IL_Buono » Sun Feb 29, 2004 7:42 am

If you didn't like the cheesy effects, then you have the right to critize the movie. Even if you haven't seen its 70 style influences. It is all based on opinion.

No he doesn't. He has no right to say his opinion here. This is a fascist message board, don't you know that?

Bullt

Re: Great movie until.............

Post by Bullt » Sun Feb 29, 2004 7:55 am

well, couldnt RR and QT have made the film in the same style as those flicks?  like i said, ive never seen em, but im sure if they're worthy directors, they're only distinguishing trait should not be cheesy special effects
The F/X are what made those old gore films. Not the acting, not the chracters, just the gore and extreme violence. Look at Lucio Fulci's Zombie, for the first half it's more like a slow moving thriller with like one zombie attack, you think it's gonna keep that pace, then it switches to a full-on gorefest like FDTD. It's just the gore when it came to the style for these movies, nothing else.


I hoped that made sense.

eehh, I'm not that serious. You can think what you want and that's your opinion. As long as you know From Dusk Till Dawn is EXACTLY the way it's supposed to be.  :-/

yeah, i guess so, i just dont think thats enough to make a great director.
anyway, why are you a newb now? heh, like the avatar  

who said they were great directors? they werent.  it was just gore. and gore alone doesnt make a good director.  thats why there are cheesy, gory effects in From Dusk Till Dawn. its supposed to look bad. thats the point
HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! You bastard!
