Popeye Pete's Death Proof script review


#1

Well I’m 77 pages into the DP script and let me tell you right now, Its AWESOME!! I just stopped right after the super car crash and holy shit is it FUCKING SICK. Remember those disturbing films you’d see in high school about people being killed drunk driving? Well thats what we’re talkin about only QT style, graphically detailed and yes, Stuntman Mike’s car IS 100% Death Proof and he even explains how he does it so he survive being killed. Just fucking superbadass. The great thing about Stuntman Mike is that hes NOT Jason or Freddy Krueger. In fact FUCK THOSE FAKE BITCHASSES!! Hes a REAL guy, with a REAL life and a REALLY fucked up psychotic personality!! :o :o :o :o:o



I’d describe what I’ve read of the film so far as a mix of QT pop culture talk/Sex in the City/Friday the 13th/Real life serial killers (Ted Bundy specifically)/Crash (people sexually turned on by car crashes, we’re talkin ORGASMS!). All I can say is that I love it. LOVE IT!! Theres references to Austin, old TV shows, old Movies, old records, even SXSW. QT plays Warren the bartender in the film who is basically QT at Video Archives only he serves up tasty alcoholic beverages. 8)



Trust me, if you guys love QT movies and horror films, you’re gonna LOVE this!! :o



Theres even a kid in this film named…Pete. Another plus! :wink:

Dude, I know this is an obvious question. But how the fuck did you manage to get hold of the script?? :o


#3

A friend sent it to me. I dont want to go into detail. But i have it. I’m not lying to ya. :slight_smile:


#4

#5

I’m debating on whether I want to read any more of it. I may just put it away and wait for the film. I dont want to know everything. :-</E>



Heres the opening dedication on the first page:



This script is dedicated to the poet laureate of the Drive In:



CHARLES B. GRIFFITH



Your work has always “Rocked All Night”, Daddy-O

Yeah Pete, it’s so frustating for all of us, QT geeks, to know you got the script but we can’t read it. Be kind, post it (or PM, maybe that’s safer) :-*

To read or not to read.



That’s one serious fucking question. I’d hate to ruin the movie for myself.


#16

Well I did read the Kill Bill script before the release, and I still enjoyed the hell out of the movie.



If anybody really is in possession of the DP script and volunteers to send it by email, don’t forget about me. :slight_smile:


#17

I don’t get why you (and others) can’t just post the script.

QT won’t care, the Weinsteins won’t care, 99% of the audience wouldn’t even know that it’s out there (and 99% of them wouldn’t be interested in reading the script).

Only under this one fucking percent which is absolutely crazy about QT are a few persons who want to read it, what’s the deal man?

Yeah, what’s the deal? If you dont’ want to post it you shouldn’t even have mentioned that you have it. I’m tearing my hair out here man, I wanna read it that bad.
