A new Godzilla poster has been revealed and while I’m sure Godzilla’s size has been exaggerated for the sake of dramatic impact… not sure why this is even an issue on the internet but, apparently it is… the poster is still very cool and achieves the desired effect…
MACHETE KILLS (2013)
While I was not a fan of the first Machete film, which played exactly like what it was, a faux movie trailer dragged painfully out to feature length, at least this second installment, which has Machete (Danny Trejo) avenging his lover’s death and chasing down a crazed Mexican revolutionary (Demián Bichir) with a nuclear missile aimed at Washington D.C., is so goofy that it makes you grin in spite of how stupid and sloppy it all is… and I’ve always felt Rodriguez was and is a very sloppy filmmaker despite all his years making movies. And the heavy political commentary once again gets in the way of the entertainment and I’m sorry but, I don’t agree with the film’s philosophy that it’s America’s job to fix Mexico’s woes… we can’t even fix our own. A mildly amusing film from an overrated filmmaker whose Machete films would be better off if he kept his politics in his pants and stuck to the fun. Also stars Mel Gibson as the pontificating villain, Voz, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara and Charlie Sheen billed under his real name of Carlos Estevez as the president of the U.S. Still cool to see fan favorite Danny Trejo get a starring role.
