Thai Tuesday: Machete Kills

File:Machete Kills.jpg


Hello boys and girls, it’s been a while since I posted one of these so I figured that I would make this one a good one… Machete Kills. Someone at work yesterday was telling me that I shouldn’t bother with it that it wasn’t as good as the original, but it has the perfect amount of the camp humour to keep me entertained. They upped the hot girl factor on this one, Sofia Vergara alone, I mean really… Damian Bichir as Mendez was great. There are plenty of references to pop culture awesomeness (including some Robert Rodriguez goodies), but my favourite has to be the 24 style countdown clock. Is it just me or does Danny Trejo only get better with time? And why are people still trying to kill Machete, haven’t they seen the first one? The cheese ball effects are great, I absolutely love them! The idea of Antonio Banderas as a Canadian (cuz he grew up in Ontario, Woo), is hard for me, it just seemed off, which is probably the desired effect.

Love it/Hate it: Love love love the fake trailer for Machete Kills Again… In Space, well internet, lets get to work on making this happen. It looks like it would be awesome. Hate it, I would have chosen Selena Gomez instead of Vanessa Hudgens, but that’s just me. Also, they play up the Mel Gibson being cray cray, but they don’t do it nearly as much with Charlie Sheen.

Favourite Quote: Machete don’t tweet.

My Rating: 1 and 3/4 bat shit crazy actors out of 2.

Other Ratings: IMDB – 5.8 stars out of 10. Rotten Tomatoes – 29%. Flisxter – 42%. (I’m thinking people don’t get this movie and are taking to seriously.)

As always, have a geektastic day, see you next time! I think I will go watch From Dusk Till Dawn now…
