Movies in Austin: GRINDHOUSE

One reason I love Austin is because “Grindhouse” was filmed here. Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are two of my favorite movie directors. If I ever grow a creepy personality and decide to stalk someone, Tarantino or Rodriguez would be the people I’d stalk. hmm.. or maybe Tim Burton.. yes…

Here’s a trailer of Grindhouse, in case you haven’t seen the movie..

Places in Austin that were shown in the movie are:

Texas has such a unique scenery that it is often described as “a whole other country.” This has helped Austin to become one of the hottest centers for film production, and MovieMaker magazine recently ranked Austin as the #1 city amongst its list of “Top American Cities to be a MovieMaker.”

According to the Austin Business Journal, in 2006 “Austin leads all Texas cities in film and television total production budgets” for the sixth consecutive year. Austin has also appeared on the MovieMaker magazine‘s annual ranking of the “best places to live, work and make movies” for six consecutive years.

I am so disappointed that I didn’t get to see Tarantino when he was here in Austin!! Oh well.. I’ll just have to try to find out where Rodriguez is filming, since apparently he is in Austin filming Sin City 2 right now.

You guys will definitely be seeing a post about that pretty soon.

    I love Quentin Tarantino! Pulp Fiction is one of my all time favorite movies. It’s nice to see people like him and Robert Rodriguez embracing a place like Austin.
