The Biggest Movie Mistake of 2007

[quote]2007 had some good, some bad, and some just downright ugly and unfortunate events in the entertainment business. Here’s my rant on the ugly: The Biggest Movie Mistakes of 2007.



“Grindhouse” is split in two for its DVD release



I just didn’t understand why movie goers were not lined up around the block. As soon as I saw the trailer and saw that it had something to do with a chick with a gun for a leg, Kurt Russell, and that Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were behind it, I was there. What more could you possibly ask for? In this case, it wasn’t just a movie, it was an experience. And for me, it was an enjoyable blast to the past and sparked an interest in Grindhouse movies. However, people just didn’t go to the theaters. And then disaster. Miramax announced “Grindhouse” would be separated for its DVD release.



I’m, simply, not having it.



Is it still “Grindhouse” if it’s split up and not seen as intended? It was marketed as a double feature for goodness sakes. But get this: you know those kick ass fake trailers that I just absolutely loved (And by the way, Mr. Roth, if you can hear me, please make Thanksgiving into a full length feature). Say bye, bye, as they will not be there. One of the best film concepts that I have seen in a very, very long time has been ruined for a DVD release.



I’ll just wait for the ultimate, mega, freaking awesome edition that has both movies presented together with the trailers, hours of special features, Tarantino and Rodriguez commentary and some home cooking recipes a la Rodriguez. And I don’t care how long it takes.

The guys bitching about the Grindhouse movies being split into two, and I’m saying that there’s going to be a Grindhouse DVD box set, according to Robert Rodriguez’s comments in the PT DVD.
