Death Proof (2007)

DeathProof

SO much better now then in 2007.

Because in 2007, there was the thought that “If QT died tomorrow, THIS is his final film.” … at least that went through my head.

But after Basterds and Django, this film works as a stop gap between Kill Bill and Basterds. It’s like a minor work, but on purpose.

And Stuntman Mike… he’s still in my top 5 Tarantino characters. Kurt Russell should have been up for an Oscar for this film.

And the first half of the film, I think is pretty much on par with the rest of QT’s work. It’s still that damn half hour without Stuntman Mike that I find weak… IN comparison to when he IS onscreen.

But the entire cast is good. Except for Omar Doom… who I found TRULY annoying here. And Tracie Thoms, it’s a real love/hate performance. She tries a little too hard to do a ‘Jules Winfield’s daughter impression’, I think.

But a real solid film. And the scenes at the end of the first act, when QT goes into full-bore horror mode are amazing. The car crash we see 4 times… why no one ever did that before is beyond me.
