Can’t Wait For Machete 2? Check Out “BAD ASS”!

It makes me so very happy that at 68 years old Danny Trejo is finally getting the respect he deserves! He really hit the top thanks to Robert Rodriguez finally casting him in his most iconic role yet “Machete”. Now I also want to take this opportunity to ask Rodriguez what the hell he was thinking when he cast Adrien Brody as the lead in Predators? Think how more awesome that movie would have been had Trejo been cast as the lead instead of a side character that gets disposed of early on in the film. Hell I think it could’ve rivaled Arnold’s role!

So anyway I wanted to recommend a new Trejo film where he takes the front and center. “Bad Ass” was just released to DVD and it’s a helluva lotta fun! Now it’s no where near as epic as Machete but it does play as more of an awesome 1980’s style action flick. The story is very very loosely based on true events. This movie tells the story of a Veitnam vet who stands up for an elderly man (Trejo is considered a senior citizen also, the movie’s tag line is “They just messed with the wrong Senior Citizen” ) on the bus from two nasty foul mouthed neo-nazi’s. By stands up I mean, kicks ASS. Someone records it with their phone and Trejo soon is an internet sensation. This begins a string of events that pushes him, or should I say “Bad Ass”, as he is renamed that sets this vet on a rampage of full on butt kicking for the movies duration.

Yeah this movie is cheezy as hell and it knows it. It’s got a ton of great one liners, a high speed bus chase, Ron Perlman as a crooked mayor and lots of drinkin’ between the action scenes by Trejo. Hell Danny pretty much puts everyone in place in this one. Everything about this one a throwback to films like Commando & Rambo. It’s a bunch of dumb fun and a delight seeing Trejo deliver an ass whooping again and again…

New Official Machete Trailer!!

God damn am I excited for the the upcoming Robert Rodriguez flick “Machete” which spawned from the faux trailers of the Grindhouse movies!!

 Today the new trailer was just released so I figured it’d be a good time to post it up here. It’s got some amazing people starring in it and looks like it should have been the third feature in the Grindhouse double feature that Rodriguez and Taratino released a few years back. I have been pumped ever since I heard that this movie was actually happening and what’s even more exciting is seeing the return of Steven Seagal to the big screen!!

Predators Trailer Debut!!

Ok so today the official trailer for Predators is out! It looks pretty bad ass to me and I now I must say I can’t wait for the real film to hit! check it out!!

“The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systematically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.”

‘Machete’ is on the way finally!!! PLUS more PREDATORS, MINUS ARNOLD….

Remember all those rad trailers at the beginning of  Tarantino & Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” double feature in 2007? Well I have just heard that filming for the “Machete” movie, based on the amazing fake trailer shown before the double feature is going to officially start filming in June in Austin, Texas. With Robert Rodriguez writing, directing and producing this one it’s sure to be another amazing, completely over the top film. Machete, a film about the blade- wielding antihero, features the legendary Danny Trejo as the title charcter. A Mexican ex-Federale with a knack for chopping up bad guys like sushi, masquerading as a day laborer, who’s double-crossed by a corrupt state senator.
