It's been a long wait, but Quentin Tarantino's DEATH PROOF finally hit Region 2 DVD earlier this week, while PLANET TERROR is due 10th March. As someone who was unable to catch the cinema screenings, I've been eagerly awaiting the chance to see these films.

Earlier on, I kidded my wife that I had actually ordered the above package and, for just a few seconds, we almost had a real Grindhouse situation on our hands. Still, it's not bad for just £53!


  1. I need that Japanese set in a very bad way...I am most curious to hear your thoughts on the films. I definately prefer DEATH PROOF but adored PLANET TERROR as well..

  2. Can't wait to see these films. I have them on my Lovefilm list (this is our equivalent of Netflix) and greatly look forward to seeing them.
