There are many new movies opening this weekend, but the most talked about one(s) is Grindhouse, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's twin-bill homage to '70s-era exploitation films. Given its preference for replication rather than reinvention, it's not surprising to find that the project is something of a mixed-bag. Yet it's nonetheless one that - as my latest guest review at Cinematical explains - has its fair share of ass-kicking moments.
Though I promised a ton of fresh reviews, much of this past week's output has yet to be posted online. So for now, you'll all just have to enjoy my thoughts on the (surprisingly okay?!?) Lasse Hallström-Richard Gere collaboration The Hoax and the predictably ignorable Firehouse Dog.
