Danny is a national treasure. He is this generations Tom Hanks.

The trailer for the last one looked somewhat fun, if bloodier than I like.

This particular trailer is more or less SFW, unless the mere sight of cleavage is a firing offense.

I do enjoy these movies, but I just want him to farking get Sin City 2 and 3 out already. The way its looking, those 2 movies will come out around the time we get Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair dvd.

Rated X for cigarette use. Nice.

I do enjoy these movies.  Believe it or not, Lady Gaga was fun in the last one.  Everyone seems to be having fun.  Good for Danny.

I suspect that the delay has something to do with the fact that you're basically the only one.

Not pulpy or ridiculously over-the-top-melodramatic enough for faithfully adapting the comics, not dark or complex enough to stand as noir in its own right, too poorly acted, directed and scripted to stand as a generic crime drama... sort of the world's best illustration of how a movie can fail by trying to play it too safe by taking the path of moderation at every turn.

// Albeit a faithful adaptation that kept the comics plot-lines instead of making up new, wishy-washy low-rent knockoffs would have to deal that most of the plot-lines hinged entirely on all women being both evil and literally prostitutes... I imagine a lot of things from that period of Miller's psychopathic misogyny might be rough on the screenwriters trying to avoid their significant others and female relatives ostracizing them.

Sin City was farking awesome.  Just introduced my 12 year old son to it last weekend.  Blew his damn mind.  (censored TV version)

Didn't the first Machete start out as mock trailer for a film that didn't exist, or is that just Hollywood lore?

It was one of the Grindhouse fake trailers. Bummer Eli Roth never made Thanksgiving.

Rumor is it was mired in post production and reshoots to correct earlier production problems

I must be in the minority, but I thought Machete worked much better as its original fake trailer.  The trailer was perfect.  The full length movie just seemed unnecessary, and it was just the same joke drawn out over 90 minutes.

I dunno about that.
It was one of the few movies I've been to where the crowd actually burst out cheering a number of times, and clapped at the end.
The only other one that comes to mind was the South Park movie, where the crowd applauded both the Uncle farker song, and Bill Gates getting shot in the head.

I really wish this became a thing. Like if Grindhouse hadn't tanked at the box office and became a franchise, they could keep getting guest directors to make awesome trailers which could potentially become films with more fake trailers.

Bf+: he only other one that comes to mind was the South Park movie, where the crowd applauded both the Uncle farker song,


saw South Park:B,L & U day of release at the theater.

Uncle farka killed half the audience almost immediately.  I mean the Jews didn't leave Egypt as fast as that theater started clearing.

by "donkey raping shiat eater" , only myself and the friend that I took with me to the theater were left standing.

we watched the rest of the film alone in an empty auditorium.

Where did you watch it, the Vatican?
That sucks, dude.
At the time, that experience was only topped by the time I snuck into the Rocky Horror Picture Show when I was twelve.

What backass part of the world did you watch that movie? I saw it in a packed house on opening night and not one person left the theater, we were all too busy cheering and laughing. Did you see it in Utah or something?

/finds it hard to believe half a crowd for a South Park movie would leave because they were offended, but hey, that's the story you want to tell, right?

Oh wait, you claim it wasn't "half the crowd", right frepnog? Just you and your friend were left, all alone in a movie theater because you two were the only two hardcore enough to make it through a movie that was immensely popular, critically well-loved, and made a bunch of money.

Because frepnog and his pal are just that hardcore.

not accurate.  I saw the movie in Jasper, AL.  That is a small, fairly fundie town in Alabama, and I'll be honest - I doubt half the people in that theater even knew for sure what they were in for.  Add that to the fact that Jasper's theater is tiny.

(only pic I can find online of the theater)

Add that to at the time, South Park (the show) was still fairly clean.  Yeah, the kids cursed but it was all beeped and was never really all that big a deal.

And then, Uncle farker.

Yeah...  that theater cleared the hell out, and fast.

To be fair, I've spent time in Jasper and maybe that's possible. But still. I've watched plenty of movies in rural Alabama and Florida and I still doubt your story. All you are doing is painting the stereotype. Not that it's not true, but I still don't buy it.

buy it or don't, I don't really care.  it happened.  meh.  i was honestly freaking surprised, but I was too busy laughing my ass off to really care.  seriously tho, by the time operation "hide behind the darkies" was in full swing, my friend and I were alone in there.  think about it tho - alot of people at the time only really knew south park from a few episodes that were pretty clean, and from the popular toys\plushies because at first the show was really aimed at kids. Yeah, it was potty mouthed, but nothing really BAD. Imagine being a parent taking your kid to see "those funny south park kid's" movie, and then the freaking second musical number is "Uncle farker".  There were quite a few kids in that theater when the film started, kids that had absolutely NO business seeing that film.

also saw Grindhouse at a Rave in Birmingham on opening night.

other than myself and my girlfriend at the time, the theater was empty.  on opening night.  I knew that film was in trouble then.  Still loved it.

I'm far more bummed that Rob Zombie hasn't made 'Werewolf Women of the SS' yet. That seems right up his alley.

I remember reading that he shot about a half hour of footage already.

I always thought a good sequel would have been to have Machete and Black Dynamite as a double feature.

Machete was a better film than Machete Kills..., only because Jeff Fahey is god damned awesome. I love that Rodriguez has used him to great effect in a couple of movies. Just wish Michael Biehn would get a little more love. The fact that they're both in Planet Terror makes me love that film so much.

/watched a lot of movies in the 80s
