SXSW Review: Lucha Underground: Austin Warfare

Here at SXSW, I was lucky enough to attend Lucha Underground’s very first live show outside of its home at the temple in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, “Lucha Underground: Austin Warfare.” For those unfamiliar with Lucha Underground, it is a relatively new and very unique wrestling program, produced by Robert Rodriguez for his television network, […]

From Dusk Till Dawn – Season One (Blu-ray Review)

Robert Rodriguez’s episodic version of he and Quentin Tarantino’s classic From Dusk Till Dawn seems like it fulfills many trends going on in television at the moment.  Easily, it covers the fascination with vampires.  That’s a given.  And with that it also is another horror television show which is all the rage.  Thirdly, its taking […]

Welcome Back To The Cartoonishly Grim World Of ‘Sin City’ (Movie Review)

In 2005 I fell in love with Sin City.  While the worst thing that film may have given since us was the directional ambitions of the graphic novel’s creator Frank Miller (see don’t see: The Spirit), it had plenty else to offer.  Director Robert Rodriguez delivered an ambitious and visually stunning adaptation of a few books from the […]

Frank Miller’s ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ New 60 Second Trailer

I guess I’ll go on record by saying Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is probably one of my most anticipated flick’s of the year.  I don’t know whether it’s going to be good or bad, but what I have seen thus far has not disappointed me.  Quite the contrary!  All the footage I […]

Machete Kills (Blu-ray Review)

Universal’s Machete Kills represents everything that’s wrong with Hollywood, sexploitation, extreme gore, bad dialogue, ridiculous plot and action sequences…you name it.  But why do I love it so much?!  Because it’s so much God d@mn fun if you let it be!  That’s why!  If you can’t let go and have a fun time with a Machete […]

Austin Comic Con 2013: A Conversation With Robert Rodriguez

I kind of find it very funny or maybe even a little ironic in the fact that I would see Robert Rodriguez each and every summer at Comic-Con in beautiful downtown San Diego. And now that I moved to the man’s main town in Austin, TX this past February, I have not bumped into him […]

‘Machete Kills’: The Border Strikes Back (Movie Review)

I have a lot to say about Machete Kills, the latest Mexploitation film from director Robert Rodriguez.  A lot of it may be negative, as the film, overall, tries too hard, despite having plenty of ideas and a wonderful ensemble cast, consisting of anyone who apparently had a free weekend at some point to come […]

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 […]

Comic-Con 2011: Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions

Any Robert Rodriguez fans in the house?  Well if there are, you’re in luck.  I was shocked to learn that Robert Rodriguez scored his very own Hall H panel.  That either means that the guy is a name brand now or the world of comics are taking Comic-Con back over by storm.  Or maybe it’s […]

Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids Investigate Blu-ray This August!

So if I’m such a big Robert Rodriguez fan, then why have I never seen any of these Spy Kids films?  I’m not sure of the answer to that one, but that’s all about to change this summer when his high octane kid-friendly franchise makes its way to the Blu-ray format.  Yep.  That’s right ladies […]

Robert Rodriguez Presents “The Black Mamba”

I’m not a big sports fan, but when it comes to Robert Rodriguez and his many projects, that’s a totally different story.  Nike and Robert Rodriguez present Kobe Bryant (yes, Kobe Bryant) in The Black Mamba. I initially found out about this when our very own Aaron Neuwirth sent me the teaser trailer a couple […]

Official: Hobo With A Shotgun Poster!

Hobo With A Shotgun was originally released with certain prints of  Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse a few years ago.  It was a fake trailer created for Rodriguez’s Grindhouse competition.  That’s all it took before director Jason Eisener decided to make a feature length film with Rutger Hauer in the lead as the Hobo…with […]
