Hey, that’s great, but has nothing to do with what I said.
Personally, I’ve been holding off on buying the movies separately as I really have no interest in seeing them that way and didn’t go for the Japanese set because I knew the whole experience would eventually make it’s way to blu ray. With this movie, I want to emulate the experience I had when I saw it in theaters at home to the best of my abilities, and come this August, I can finally do that.
How does it have nothing to do with what you said? The version on Netflix that Geoi mentioned is the exact film you saw in the theater and she said she expects we’ll see that version on DVD soon.
I think only owning them melted together as one film would be much more annoying than owning them separate. That’s just a personal preference though I guess. I just can’t imagine ever wanting to watch both movies back to back in one sitting again. They just don’t really fit together. When I picture a double billing I expect two similarly themed movies back to back and Grindhouse didn’t offer that in the slightest.
Just making both films look old an worn doesn’t mean they fit together in my book. Fuck, Death Proof didn’t even really look all that old and worn. It was pretty much crystal clear for the second half of the film.
