Have you been watching the What We Do in the Shadows series on FX? If not, then last night you missed out on an incredible assembly of cameos from celebrities who have played famous vampires over the years, including Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement, and Jonathan Brugh as the original trio of vampires from the mockumentary film that inspired the series.

Believe it or not, that Dora the Explorer movie is arriving in theaters late this summer, and we’re about to get a glimpse of what we can expect when the first trailer drops this weekend during the Kids Choice Awards on Nickelodeon. But before the trailer even arrives for Dora and the Lost City of Gold, we’ve already got a perplexing piece of information about the adaptation of the animated series for kids.
Yesterday, along with the first theatrical posters for the Dora the Explorer movie, Machete star Danny Trejo confirmed that he’s providing the voice for Dora’s best animal friend Boots, a money who wears, you guessed it, a machete. Wait. I mean boots! He wears rain boots! But if you look at the Dora the Explorer movie posters, there are no boots to be found on this monkey. Read More »
Machete and Machete Kills followed up on the joke trailer Robert Rodriguez created for the Grindhouse double-bill he and Quentin Tarantino put together in 2007. But there have been talks — or jokes, at least — about a third movie.
Rodriguez even opened the second movie with another fake trailer, for Machete Kills Again… In Space. With these films, it’s sometimes difficult to gauge what is a real idea and what is a joke, and even what is a joke idea that becomes real. But star Danny Trejo says that work on Machete 3, er, Machete Kills Again …In Space, will begin this year. Read More »

The real attraction in the film, which is directed by Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, is the visual design.

3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.
But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

In Machete Kills, director Robert Rodriguez once again celebrates guns, babes, and manly men. This sequel to Machete finds many ways to combine those three factors, offering a new permutation every few minutes. The action is dumb and goofy and very self aware, and Machete Kills is occasionally kind of a blast. The cast is game for anything, and few actors stick around long enough to wear out their welcome.
If only the same could be said for the film, which is long, soggy, and distracted by it’s own excess. Machete Kills is a two-hour Robot Chicken special that features humans instead of action figures, and its schtick wears thin well before everyone runs out of energy. Read More »
