Fucking With the Wrong Mexicans

Whatever other merits is may have as a movie, Machete succeeded in driving the anti-immigrant crowd batshit crazy, and for this we were more than eager to give Robert Rodriguez ten of our hard-earned dollars. But for reasons we can't even begin to fathom, Machete has yet to open in Mexico, so we've been forced to channel a mere two of our hard-earned dollars to the black-market pirata guys instead - a move Machete himself would have applauded, but it still feels to us like taking tacos off of Danny Trejo's plate. And taking tacos off of Danny Trejo's plate seems like a really, really bad idea.


Danny, Robert, or anyone associated with the film who happens to be reading this is encouraged to stop by our offices during normal business hours (Noon-2PM, Wed-Fri) to collect the full ticket price we owe them. Or you could just open the goddamn film in Mexico and make, oh, a billion pesos the first weekend. Seriously, did anyone at 20th Century Fox actually attend business school?

Hola Burro Hall, hereby a request for more blogging about PUGS. Los carlinitos. Los fabulosos. Los super duper chulos. Alternatively or additionally, chihuahuas and xolos. Yes.

I too will be forced to pay the equivalent of a couple of dollars for a pirate version at the local mercado.

Film and TV media just don't quite seem to have yet caught on that their programming and movies will be released internationally on, or very near, the same date. Whether they like it or not.

El Machete should go to Mexico and take care of some of these problems. Que No?

You know how hard it is to find a Mexican to do sub titles? Even worse than finding a good Mexican billionaire.
