Exactly. Anybody who's watched those kinds of films from the 70s would easily see just how dead on this film really was. I loved it.
The only mistake they made with it was showing it AFTER Planet Terror. It's a much slower movie, so (for some audiences) it's hard to go from something as extreme as Planet Terror to something more subdued and character focused like Death Proof. So yeah, they definitely should've shown them in reverse order when the two films were still in theaters.
