With the exception of some of the fake trailers, I think it has to do with the way it was shown in the theatres. I watched Grindhouse on a movie network and besides those fake trailers, everything else was included on the DVD and Blu-ray releases.

There's the argument that the leaner cuts of the movies (especially Death Proof) play better than the extended versions too.

That argument is 100% correct.

While I really don't have an opinion on Planet Terror, especially since the extended cut doesn't add that much material (more scenes of terror and violence with character development here and there); Death Proof becomes somewhat of a chore to sit through in it's 113-minute extended runtime. While some of the footage is solid (i.e. the "missing" lapdance scene), a majority of it is more filler than anything else. While I do love Nicky Katt admitting he loves Italian Vogue, the rest I could've done without.

I do agree with Drexl's comment, the whole is greater than the sum of it's individual parts. One of my favorite parts about Grindhouse was for the fact that it felt like a legitimate Grindhouse experience. It was the reason I saw it three times theatrically (one even being at a local drive-in). Sadly, this feeling I've had regarding the films hasn't been mimicked via it's video releases despite owning the DVDs and BDs of the films.

re: Rumor: Grindhouse Coming to Bluray? (EDIT:Yup! Oct. 5th!)

Hopefully we do see the theatrical cut at some point on Blu - I have the DVD theatrical cut (6 disc Japanese boxset), as well as the domestic extended cuts (both on DVD and Blu).

Unfortunately, my hopes aren't very high with TWC any more. I remember a strange release pattern on HDDVD, getting mixed info on Blu Ray (at Comic Con '07 (?) they stated that the theatrical cut would be appearing on blu in Dec. 2009). Last year they didn't have any new info at Comic Con and this year they were missing altogether. Hopefully it does eventually come, but I wouldn't get your hopes up for online listings of a Blu Ray set just yet.

I have not seen the original cut of Grindhouse only the extended versions.

Although, I did like Death Proof more then Planet Terror, I am very curious to see how the original cut plays.

re: Rumor: Grindhouse Coming to Bluray? (EDIT:Yup! Oct. 5th!)

The theatrical version of Grindhouse is currently on Netflix Instant Watch. It's just now being label as being available until 09/01/2009 so if you haven't seen it, you should catch it while you can.. even though I think these rumors and such are a good indicator that it's going to released on disc pretty soon it's probably better to be safe than sorry.

Cool thanks for the tip. Even if I do miss it, I can wait.

I myself have the Extended releases on Dvd and have never seen the theatrical cuts but WILL not upgrade to Blu ray until the Grindhouse experience is released. It would be sweet to see something similar to the Japanese release. Although Id like to see both editions with the trailers included. (maybe different packaging too) I hate cardboard.

re: Grindhouse

(some info on Kill Bill TWBA as well)
That’s not the only Tarantino project to be cut in two however, with the current DVD releases of Grindhouse in most of the world splitting the double bill apart (not to mention many of the theatrical releases). Is that one about to be reconstituted too? Not right now, no:

We’ve just been lazy getting around to Grindhouse, the full edition.

He admits it. And the inference is, of course, that he’ll get round to it in due course
The run around as usual with these guys.

At this point, to be honest, if they're not going to put effort into the release; just give us a barebones release.

Just give me the same audio and video quality of the existing BDs and call it a day. I'm sure there's EPKs from the original theatrical release floating around plus trailers you can throw out there and bam, call it a fucking day and let's move on with it.

WOW, he also goes on to say 2015 release, maybe I should just pick them up.

Now I'm stumped, I don't know if I should wait or not and I just took a look over at BB to see if they were still on sale and Deathproof is lower now 12.99 and Planet Terror is still 14.99.?? If its really a 2015 release Im going to cave and buy now.

He directed the fake trailer "Don't" so there must be a new release actually being worked on that includes the trailers.

I prefer the extended cut's... can we have a release with the extended cuts as an option with the fake trailers, etc. in-between for the full experience? That's what I want the most.

Good news!

I had been kicking myself for a long time for sleeping on the Japanese Grindhouse set.

Awesome! That is all I have to say. Glad I help off on buying the individual BD's.
