Im sure QT could go freelance and just work at diff studios. He doesnt need the Weinsteins. Theyre greedy fuckin pigs anyways.
I also think the Weinsteins shouldve known better to even let them do the 3 hour Grindhouse thing. Kill Bill was split up for the exact reason Grindhouse failed.
The bottom line is Robert Rodriguez caused this whole fuckin problem. It was his genius idea to do the double feature. Just cuz he has an idea doesnt mean its a good one. Also, Fuck him and his CGI bullshit too. I dont even like his movies.
QT is at fault for even listening to him. Im not saying he wasnt involved in the flop.
Robert Rodriguez is not to blame for the financial bust that was Grindhouse. His movies are riddled with CGI, but he only uses it to expedite the filmmaking process that allows him to move with confidence and efficiency. I liked Planet Terror - but it was the missing reel that really ruined the PT experience, and I would have enjoyed the film a whole lot better if there wasen’t a missing reel in the theatrical cut. And didin’t QT mention that the entire Grindhouse idea came from both of them. It’s a collaborative effort after all - and if QT thought that the entire idea were in fact stupid, he would have never made it. So saying that it was Robert’s fault is rediculous. And I really do enjoy Robert’s movies, in the exception of Spy Kids and Lava Boy with Thunder girl - or whatever it was called. I see Grindhouse as a successful faliure - and these guys had the balls to bring the entire world a whole new experience of Grindhouse cinema that not many people have seen or even heard of.
