I had a lot of fun with Machete, definitely my favorite of the Grindhouse films. Don't know how much longer they can stretch out the joke though. And going to space? Sounds terrrrrible.

Leprechaun in Space was also damn amusing in a I-can't-believe-the-filmmakers-did-this-to-try-to-make-money kind of way

i've been catching up on 80s and 90s action films that i missed earlier in my life. films id see in video stores but had no interest in at the time. chuck norris, steven seagal. made it through seagal's first 4. obviously he peaked with his 5th, under siege, but i enjoyed hard to kill and marked for death. above the law was kind of boring, and out for justice was so ridiculous it was funny. with norris, on the other hand, its much harder to trace a career trajectory. he made c-grade martial arts and war films in the 70's and 80's, then family friendly b-grade tripe in the 90's before hitting walker texas ranger. that was obviously his commercial peak, but in terms of film, i'd say code of silence has been the best so far.

My favourite Seagal movie has always been Hard to Kill. I love the whole revenge story and the training scenes. And the hot woman doesn't hurt either. "And you can take that to the bank, (Bad ass music comes in) the blood bank!"

The Machete concept is better than the real thing.

Yeah, a lot of people seems to HATE the Machete in Space idea, but come on, havenīt they seen cult/trash classics like "Starcrash", "Battle Beyond the Stars" etc?
There havnīt been an old school sci-fi exploitation movie since the Corman glory days in the 80:s.
I would LOVE to see Machete nail some hot spacebabes in silver swimsuits and do battle with space mutants etc

Donīt take it so damn serious, people!
The world needs more trashy stuff like this, than another silly Avatar on the big screen

Rodriguez says sequel will begin shooting in April

Quote:
Most of the original, surviving cast is expected to return, while Rodriguez also revealed that the plot will find Machete wreaking havoc in Mexico as he tries to stop both a maniacal cartel leader and a billionaire arms dealer who plans to launch a weapon into space, with the faded ’80s and ’90s movie stars playing those characters still yet to be decided.
Start yer engines. I have to admit that I didn't make it all the way through the first one, but I will always have a soft spot for these trailers-turned-actual-films.

Wasn't a fan of the first one, which is a shame because I love a lot of Rodriguez's stuff. I thought it worked a lot better as a trailer.

And is it me, or is Rodriguez desperately trying to avoid doing Sin City 2?

Letīs have Willis as the bad guy... he and Rodrigues are great friends so it wouldnīt be too hard... and a cameo by Thurman as The Bride.
