I was watching the TV version of FDTD last night. The overdubbing they did was pretty funny. Seth says to Richie “Your a funny nut” instead of fuckin nut. So Richie goes “Did you just call me a funny nut?” I was laughing at all the edited stuff they took out. Doesnt matter, the movies still alot of fun to watch either way. I was just thinking how it couldve been better if the vampires had personalities like in the Lost Boys, then it wouldntve been such a one dimsensional vampire fight. The whole crime story up till they get to the Kitty Twister was coolest part I think. They shouldve had more talking going on between the vampires and Seth and Jacob, etc.
The coolest parts of the movie:
The beginning is awesome. Its totally Tarantino. I love when Seth says “We’re gonna turn this place into The Wild Bunch…”. Another reference to a bloody as hell movie. Even the credits at the beginning look almost exactly like Pulp Fiction.
When Richie kills the bank teller and Seth is looking at what he did. The way Rodriguez uses that flash of red, very cool way to express the shock of the scene.
Seeing Big Kahuna Burgers pop up in the film.
When they get stopped at the border and the cops search the camper and they see Juliette Lewis on the toilet. Seth and Richie are hiding. That was a close call.
Scott is wearing a shirt that says “Precinct 13”. Then Seth and Richie assault the family so to speak. Assault on Precinct 13 is one of QTs favorite movies. Directed by John Carpenter (The Thing, Halloween, Big Trouble in Little China, Vampires).
The Satanico Pandemonium dance. The look on Richies face was classic.
