From Dusk Till Dawn
Full-tilt boogie: A full-length "making of" documentary that was theatrically released. Unlike most such docs, name actors are interviewed, but are only rarely the focus of the film. This film is about the assistant directors, the personal assistants, the grips, the people from craft services, the drivers--indeed, the vast unseen bulk of the iceberg that supports the average film production. There are also disasters: the exterior facade for the Titty Twister burned down, shooting was halted by dust storms, and the threat of union action over Rodriguez's choice to shoot with a non-union crew. In the end, the last scene has the crew giving each other rounds of hugs after wrapping the last shot is as sentimental as a family reunion, testament to why films--for all the difficulty--continue to be made. From dusk till dawn: The notorious Gekko Brothers, Seth and Richard, are on the run and headed for Mexico to meet with the mysterious "Carlos." Their simple bank robbery ended up killing multiple Texas Rangers. They hijack the mobile home of Minister Jacob Fuller and his family to ensure their safe passage. Their appointed destination is a neon-covered topless bar catering to bikers and truckers who've wandered off the beaten path. Everything seems fine until the bar's staff, band, and patrons turn out to be vampires!

I was suprised at how much i enjoyed this movie. It wasn't anything new persay, but it seemed fresh. And anything Tarantino is involved in usually doesn't let you dowbn.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

I love this movie (I own it!) and I hsave watched it since I was little :P
Tarantino movies are like, the best! From Dusk Till Dawn is one of the best haha! It is pretty cheesy in ways, and I might wanna watch it before your kids do, but it still a great movie altogether!

Horror cheese at best. The film shifts dramatically from the first half to the second half. The first half seemed like a delightful Tarantino-penned tale, but unfortunately it gives way to a stupid vampire flick the moment they pull into the Titty Twister. Morality is debated, but not enough to justify the path it took. There's little elements that are funny here and there (especially Cheech showing up in three different roles), but it kind of ruins the tone by bringing in the chuckles. Only wish more time had been devoted to the initial plotline.

This movie is very cool. While your getting into the story you almost forget it's a horror movie filled with vampires. Salma Hayek is one of the best looking vampires in a horror movie. Her role is short but you will not forget her. It has good sound and i would recommend you play this on your HOMETHEATER. Both George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino lead a great cast in this film. I give this movie 4 and half stars. For a good horror story,decent effects, and it's funny at times. Popcorn,Goobers and a chocolate shake.
