Death Proof 
"Death Proof" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

A twisted stunt driver turned serial killer specialising in "vehicular homicide" meets his match when he takes on a pair of female stunt drivers on R'n'R. The Tarantino section of the cinematic release Grindhouse had me thinking that Quentin had finally dropped the ball. After half an hour of girl chat (which was obviously written by a man, making it very reminiscent of Kevin Smith and Chasing Amy in particular) and wriggling asses I found my attention wandering a little. And then Kurt stepped into his "death proof" car, and he suddenly reminded me of how cool he (or rather Snake Plissken) used to be. One spectacular crash later, it grinds to a halt again. But thankfully this leads up to a final half hour that was more than worth the wait, as the would be victims turn the tables and turn into Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! bitch queens from hell. It did have its flaws; it could easily have lost a good half an hour of girl chat (I couldn't help wondering how much was restored padding for the non-Grindhouse DVD release), it's a little light on plot, and QT inexplicably decided to ditch the lo-fi retro photography half way through, but this film all about the finale which is well worth the wait.
