We gave it an B+

Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s crazily funny and exciting tribute to ’70s exploitation films. It opens with Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, which so nails badly lit gross-out ghoulishness it’s like the Far From Heaven of schlock. Tarantino’s Death Proof has too much jabber but leaves you laughing and gasping at a film that knows how to put the bad back in badass.
