I can't believe you are all raking together all the info you find about the project, all the interviews, the rumors, the possible actors and everything. It's just surprising. Grindhouse section of the forum is extremely tempting, but I try to stay off of it, just because it's a proven fact - the less you know about a movie, the more it stuns you when you first watch it. I want it to happen with Grindhouse. I want to FORGET that I know about the fake trailers. I don't want to know the titles of the parts. I WON'T watch it's trailer. I'll see it for the first time - pure, unspoiled, stunning as it will be and enjoy it to the fullest.
This happened with Barry Lyndon, I had just seen the DVD case, the explanation was in some language I don't know, so I just put it in and pressed play.
BAM! Duel. PERFECT love scene. Emotions up. Interest overwhelming. Great dialogues, that film has outstanding charisma, beats Clockwork, beats his entire collection. This was a great surprise, I expected some slow movie about old times and got this incredible epic, excellent movie, and once you get high watching a film you don't go back until it's finished. Three hours of magnificence.
The same for many films I love. If you read that book you'll just wait the parts written about to appear in the movie and so on. Since it comes out in Summer (which is before the film, isn't it?) it's before the film is shown, why are they doing this?
/God bless me, may I not be mistaken in the fact that the book's in stores before the movie, or else I deserve to be tortured for this./
