Yellowbeard (Blu-ray Review)

Yellowbeard has plenty of Monty Python members in it, but its not of their official canon of films.  This was some sort of Graham Chapman passion project that he spent many scripts and years trying to get funding.  The late The Who drummer Keith Moon wound up being that benefactor and was supposed to be […]

The Book Of Life (Blu-ray Review)

The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a widely loved kids film, when it comes to celebrating Halloween.  If things go the way they should, The Book of Life is in a nice position to become the film that represents Dia de los Muertos for kids, let alone brings it further into mainstream prominence.  Director Jorge […]

Tales From Earthsea (Blu-ray Review)

Tales From Earthsea was the fourth biggest grosser in Japan in 2006.  The film is an adaptation from the Ursula K Le Guin’s popular Earthsea series of novels.  This film was apparently the product of taking the first four books and smudging them all together in one film.  The author has argued that the plot […]

Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams (Blu-ray Review)

I am a big fan of filmmaker Robert Rodriguez; however, I never quite made the plunge to go and see his “kids” films.  While Rodriguez has made some pretty hard R-rated features in his time (Desperado, From Dusk til Dawn, Sin City), he has also let his wild imagination carve himself out a niche in […]

El Mariachi/Desperado (Blu-ray Review)

The Robert Rodriguez library on Blu-ray continues to expand.  Columbia Pictures proudly present: the first two films in the Robert Rodriguez “Mexican” trilogy.  It’s only fitting that a real Mexican was tasked with (okay I volunteered) to review the Rodriguez Mariachi series on Blu-ray.  Once again, this will be a cumulative review, but I will […]

Once Upon A Time In Mexico (Blu-ray Review)

In our previous adventures with our famed guitarista we had several revenge and closure story arcs to abide by.  With Once Upon A Time In Mexico we have come full circle.  Robert Rodriguez pulled a Sergio Leone.  This was to be Rodriguez’s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Was Robert Rodriguez successful?  I suggest […]

Machete (Blu-ray Review)

Four years ago we caught a glimpse of a fake trailer that would forever change the world of exploitation  cinema for years to come.  Machete! Originally used as a trailer to open Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, fan reaction was enormous and the world wanted a full feature based on this mythical killing machine.  Robert Rodriguez […]

Machete – He Gets the Women & He Kills Bad Guys

Let me start by saying Danny Trejo is awesome.  The fact that we are living in a time where he is headlining a movie is great.  Trejo has gone from boxing in San Quentin to becoming incredibly prolific, appearing in well over 100 films.  He has served mainly as a memorable, tough Mexican in roles […]

Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This (Blu-ray Review)

My first introduction to the pot-smoking comedians, Cheech and Chong, was some time in the mid 1980’s.  By a miracle of the technology gods, my father held onto a working 8-track player.  Knowing only records and your typical small cassettes up to that point, I grabbed one of the remaining 8-track tapes and proceeded to […]
