Planet Terror (2007)
Two doctors find their graveyard shift inundated with townspeople ravaged by sores. Among the wounded is Cherry Darling, a dancer whose leg was ripped from her body. As the invalids quickly become enraged aggressors, Cherry and her ex-boyfriend El Wray lead a team of accidental warriors into the night.
I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.
That was an excellent one.
Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.
Stupid movie. Don't waste your time. Not at all entertaining.
When a deadly chemical known as DC2 is released at a military based in rural Texas something strange starts happening to those affected by it they appear gangrenous and start attacking other people in a zombie like fashion. Among those caught up in the events are Cherry Darling, a go-go dancer who loses a leg when attacked and her bad-boy friend Wray; the local police; barbecue restaurant owner JT and doctors William and Dakota Block. Before the film is over they will have to fight off lots of the infested as well as a group of soldiers with a dark secret.This film is deliberately over-the-top and trashy; anybody shot virtually explodes and the gore level is turned up to eleven this will either make one dislike the film or find it darkly comical. The characters are pretty cheesy too, but again in a fun way. Rose McGowan is entertaining as our one-legged protagonist, Freddy Rodríguez is pretty good as the cliché bad boy Wray, the rest of the cast are decent enough although it can be hard to judge when they are trying to be slightly rubbish! The story is entertaining and provides lots of gory laughs. The deliberate aging of the film with 'scratches' was a bit mixed; when the scratches were minor it gave a good feel to the film but when it was more extreme, and there was even a 'missing reel' it was rather annoying especially when important details were deliberately omitted. Given the mostly comic tone the attempted rape scene featuring Quentin Tarantino just felt nasty even if his demise was satisfyingly unpleasant. Overall I did enjoy this even if it does try a bit too hard to be trashy at times.
All you need to know about 'Planet Terror' is that, due to events I won't go into in great detail, a former stripper gets her leg replaced by a machine gun. Once 'attached' she can then fire it with pinpoint accuracy (let's not go into exactly HOW she can fire a gun with a trigger at 'knee height') and even shoot missiles into the floor which propel her through the air, allowing her to leap over walls.If that concept sounds like the biggest load of tosh you've ever heard, then you're probably better off not bothering with this one. However, if you think that sounds like the craziest and/or coolest thing you've ever heard of, then give Planet Terror a try.If you sit through it you'll find a zombie film that's actually got quite a big budget, only it's concealed within a movie that prides itself on looking cheap and B-movie-like. There's a whole host of famous actors in it (many famous for their B-movie roles), more gore than you could ever wish for and did I mention there's a stripper with a machine gun for a leg? You'll either love it or hate it. Judging from what other reviews are saying, it's more of a 'guy's film' but, if you're generally a fan of cheesy action, explosions and crazy goings on, then you'll find it all here (and more).http://thewrongtreemoviereviews.blogspot.co.uk/
This is one of my favorite movies, and in my opinion, one of Tarantino's best films. Its hilarious, has plenty of action,gore,violence.....and zombies. It also has plenty of big names in it, including Tarantino, and you can tell that they all had fun making it. In terms of comparison, i'd put it back to back with from dusk till dawn, replacing that films vampires with the afore mentioned zombies. Its just as over the top, if not a little more so. The only real complaint I have, is the little scratching noises, the parts that are supposed to look like they were over exposed, and every once in awhile, the card that would come up with "scene missing" on it. Yes, as I said I know this was all done deliberately, to make it look like a drive in movie, but it still became annoying after awhile. This movie is worth seeing just to see the fate of Tarantino's character, and the infamous "melting dick" scene.
