Review: We Are the Flesh photo

Review: We Are the Flesh

Reviewing We Are the Flesh from writer/director Emiliano Rocha Minter is tricky. On the one hand, it's a deeply flawed film aimed at a limited audience. It's transgressive in the extreme, sexually explicit bordering on pornographic, nonsens...

Review: The Book of Life

Although advertisements for The Book of Life really didn't kick in until a few months before its release, I've been eagerly anticipating the film for a bevy of reasons. It's produced by Guillermo Del Toro (thus giving it a pedigree), it's d...

Trailer for The Book of Life continues to look bueno

The Book of Life, produced by Guillermo Del Toro and directed by Jorge Gutierrez (who once created one of my favorite cartoons ever, El Tigre), looks absolutely stunning. I've completely fallen for this Die de Muertos film since it's got G...

SXSW Review: Que Caramba es la Vida

Growing up as a young Latino boy in San Antonio, Texas, I've had quite a few experiences with Mariachi groups. There was a Mariachi club in my high school, and on several occasions, my great uncle would hire groups to sing at his parties. W...

First trailer for Cesar Chavez, starring Michael Pena

Latinos don't have a lot of widely accepted historical icons. While we have our own, few have their names reach outside the Latino community. For example, Cesar Chavez was a farm worker in the 60s who organized a strike. When those strikes...

Machete Kills Review photo

Review: Machete Kills

It's a miracle Machete Kills even exists. It's a sequel to a film originally based on a joke trailer before Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse. With that in mind, it was easy to forgive potential flaws in the first Mac...

Machete Kills poster and huge batch of images are killer

I'm stupidly hyped for Machete Kills. Sure the last trailer had some wonkiness which tempered my expectations a bit, but I'm on the edge of my seat nonetheless. In the gallery you'll find the poster for Machete Kills (which just pastes a bu...

 
 
Machete Kills Trailer photo

Second Machete Kills trailer certainly kills

Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills is gearing up to be a splendidly cheesetastic sequel to 2010's Machete. It amps up the Mexican pride, hilarious deaths, and number of beautiful women. With this second trailer, we get more of the plot. Mach...

Disney nearly trademarked a Mexican holiday

For the two of you who aren't aware, I'm a 6'3 Spanish-Mexican-American Indian. I've been waiting forever for a Disney film to explore any part of that culture. I would've preferred a Spanish Disney Princess that isn't Sophia the First, but...

New photo of Alexa Vega spices up Machete Kills

Right now, I'm not sure how to feel. While the first Machete was amazingly badass, Machete Kills looks to take what was great about the first and put the "exploit" in exploitation. I hope I didn't make it sound like that's a bad thing, it's...
