I liked QT’s precision about what makes a G movie and what doesnt. it’s great to have clarified a couple of things, the G-word has been over-used for the past couple of years. still, i can’t help but asking myself a couple of questions… here is what he says:
"My point being, it has to been played in a grindhouse.Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is not really a grindhouse movie. That was a big 20th Century Fox movie. It played in grindhouses and drive-ins, you know. The same way like Halloween could be on here, but Friday the 13th…couldn’t, because that was a Paramount movie."
friday the 13th played in Time Square cinema, i’ve seen a picture once of a marquee in NY of a double feature of Friday the 13th and Don’t go in the woods… so how come, it couldn’t make the list, beside being a bad film? if that means that the company that releases the film HAS to be a small exploitation releasing company, than maybe Quartet by James Ivory is a grindhouse movie in America, since it was released by New World Pictures!
and what about THRILLER?? why did Thriller made the list? The version that was released by AIP is very different from the uncut version. according to QT’s method, the version of Thriller that’s on his list has to be the vintage AIP version! ;D
