MACHETE!
 
Anyone interested? I like Danny Trejo; he's a real-deal bad mother****er.

Been interested since the trailer during Grindhouse.

This. It looked more interesting than "Grindhouse". Wasn't it called "The Mexican" back then?

Wasn't the trailer in Grindhouse just a fake trailer and somebody said it would make a good movie so they made it?

Probably, but I don't know for sure.

Yes, that's exactly what it was.

Nope, it was MACHETE!

It was way "over the top"... and that was the point.

No, Machete was a trailer for Grindhouse (which was financed for next to nothing).

It was a homage to the X, XX and XXX films of the 70's (complete with film distortion and flickers). It was done for little to no money (back end for everyone) and although the trailers were AWESOME, no one set out to create the trailers with an intent to make them 90 minute films.

Rob Zombie has been trying to come up with a way to make "Werewolf Women of the SS" into a feature, as has Eli Roth and "Thanksgiving".

The problem with that it's akin to making a short SNL skit into a movie: It was originally conceived in short form, so how do you make it cool and relevant in long form?

The short answer is that many have tried but few have succeeded.

Dude, I haven't seen him since 2002 but I'd assume he's still involved.

He's a good guy.

Buck said, "Wasn't the trailer in Grindhouse just a fake trailer and somebody said it would make a good movie so they made it?"

And I said, "Yes, that's exactly what it was. "

It got enough buzz, that they decided to make a real movie out of it...

How was I wrong?

KcMizzou 08-31-2010 11:28 PM

I saw Grindhouse in the theater... both movies. And those trailers were the best part.

Machete was NOT a trailer for Grindhouse. It was a fake trailer for a fake movie that came between the two actual films. I went to the theater and saw it.

It created enough buzz, that they actually made the movie.

Right on. He was one of the best boxers in San Quinton Prison, so I hear.
