“When we talked about Grindhouse, I mentioned that one of the best things about it was the fake trailers. What’s even better about the trailers is that one of them, Machete, got made for real. And the Grindhouse goodness goes on.
We’re continuing with the same feel as before. Purposely low quality looking film, over the top, cheesey dialogue, gratutious gore, ridiculous screenplay, all around explosive entertainment. As per usual, Rodriguez brings all of his friends to play along: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, Daryl Sabarra adding in Steven Segal, Robert DeNiro, Lindsay Lohan, and Michelle Rodriguez. Our boy RR gets the formula a little bit better this time. It’s a bit higher quality, but still maintains the self aware low budget feel. And you’ve still got dialogue like “”Machete don’t text”” and “”We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us””. Gold.
Yup, you know we’re nearing the end of the project when I \m/ love a movie, but can’t think of anything else concrete to say about it.”
