The Week In Movies


My review of No Country for Old Men (short version: amazing) is here; my thoughts on Lions for Lambs (short version: amazing that anyone thought this was a good idea) should go up in the next couple of days.

5. Reinforced Chevy Nova, Death Proof

It's doubtful that any amount of reinforced steel could make a car
assembled in Detroit crash-safe, so the supposedly "death-proof" Chevy
Nova that Stuntman Mike uses to mow down young women in Quentin
Tarantino's portion of Grindhouse may actually be the single most ridiculous, unrealistic killing implement on this list. Still, it is pretty awesome.
