Machete

This week MovieBob lets us know if Machete makes the cut.

Watch Video

I personally have always loved Danny Trejo, almost always see him as a villain, nice change (sort of ;) )

Definantly going to check it out!

Sounds good! I figured there would be something about the border debate in there, I remember a line from the movie where someone says "We didn't cross the border! The border crossed us!" which had me giggling and rolling my eyes at the same time, as it was meant to do. I'll probably hit the theater for this one.

This is one I already wanted to see.
I loved the Grindhouse flicks, and Rodriguez is just freaking awesome.
Sign me up!

Intestines? Just a guess.

I can't wait to see this movie!!
Hope it's as good as you say!

Again, I feel like MovieBob missed the point of why people really disliked his Expendables review, but moving on from that...

I never would of thought that a movie like Machete, which was basically made as joke, would turn out like the way you described it. I might check it out, if I find someone to watch it with, since I usually don't like to watch movies by myself.

Not a rope huh?
I'm guessing it's a fire hose. I used to wonder if they could support the weight of a person.

Off topic question to Movie Bob: Do you like the TV show, It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia?

If you're too impatient to wait to see what the "rope" is, just watch the red band trailer on Youtube. WARNING: It also contains nudity, on top of the gore.

Oh, dear, what a cast. I have to see it just because of that.

I seriously hope you're right about this one and it actually sounds like a lot of fun.

Incidentally, this week's column is still about that movie? Oh, dear.

If it does, how is it on Youtube? Just curious.

Also the movie sounds interesting enough to watch :)

Yeah, it looks pretty good, and it's one of your best reviews in a while. It's made me want to see a film I wasn't interested in 5 minutes ago :D

But just one thing, "isn't a party more fun when you're celebrating something?".... you didn't go to a lot of parties, did you? :P

I'm speechless. The movie with the Minigun motorcycles and weaponized low-riders is a deep political thriller?

I don't even know what to think. I think I need to see more of the movies he reviews.

i saw it at the midnight premire, its incredible

Machete was the most interesting and hilarious trailer in Grindhouse. Gotta go see it.

JourneyThroughHell:

Ha, don't even mention the 'great cast' in this forum, we're trying to forget that debacle from a few weeks ago...

I haven't exactly seen a movie with a shit ton of action for quite a while now, so i'l think i'l definatly check this out.

Great episode this week!

What the hell did he mean by "a fairly poor summer." Did he suddenly forget about Inception, Toy Story 3 and Scott Pilgrim vs the world.

No intermisson? aww. OT the movie looks awsome but i don't know when it will come out here in sweden.

It's an official video with a red band warning at the beginning. I guess that's good enough for it to not be taken down.

Actually, now that I searched it again, there are more red band trailers uploaded unofficially that just have the gore.

I already want to see the movie, and I will keep an eye out for the political implications MovieBob mentions. I want to see if they are really there or if we are over-reading too much into it.

"Weaponized Low-Riders."
I think I'm now required to see this or else I'll be kicked out of Albuquerque...

Debacle? What do you mean? Are you referencing that other movie? If so, it too had great cast.

In the Ependables review he talked about how Crews deserves to be more famous than he is; how about Danny Trejo? He's great to watch regardless of the material and really does deserve a fair bit more fame than the little that he has.

I was going to pass on this movie, thought it was just stupid action the polotics make it sound interesting. Finally can get my freinds to come to a political movie with me :D

Apparently. They did it in Die Hard.

Intestines or - perish the absolute hideousness of the thought.... Think a little lower....

SO it's not a plot-less entourage of explosions, AND it's politically relevant.....nice!

MovieBob:
Snip

Fun fact, the movie star (who also been in around 125 films up to this point) was a real Mexican gangster, who spent his jail time working out and turning himself around. When he got out, one of his probation buddies was a producer for a film and saw that Danny was the perfect "scary Mexican bad guy" that film needed.

Danny Trejo, on a Motorcycle, thats armed with a minigun... I got to fucking see this movie!

anyone else notice the "Spy Kids" connection? Doesn't Danny Trejo play a guy codenamed Machette, and the priest guy play 'uncle Felix'?

Yeah, this has been the best summer in a long, long while.
Well, I've always liked Rodriguez, so maybe I'll check it out.

Furrama:
Intestines? Just a guess.

Wouldn't that be slimy though? You'd think it would be hard to hold on to.

Anyway, this looks okay, might see it on DVD.

EDIT: Forgot to mention how awful the spirit was. Dear god, I almost cried when showed it's poster.
