    Machete is like a support group for actors put out of work by the end of "Lost" (Lapetus and Michelle Rodriguez). Looks like good, cheesy fun. And how awesome is it that Robert DeNiro, Don Johnson and Cheech Marin all take lower billing than ... Danny fuckin' Trejo!?

    You don't see too many characters who move back and forth between children's films (Trejo played "Uncle" Machete in the "Spy Kids" series) and R-rated action pictures.

    A friend has seen The Expendables and said, "If you're over 30, you will love it as a guilty pleasure, if you're under 30, you'll think it's the worst movie of all-time."

    My friend nearly lost when he played Machete vs. his finger. The blade got down to the bone, but his finger still lives!

    I can't wait to see both of these. When I first saw the TV trailer for The Expendables, I was pumped. I've been waiting for Machete since it was announced after Grindhouse Rodriguez was planning to do a real movie.

    Is Machete about Ogi Urbina?

    I know a lot of people are pissed about Arnold's alleged cameo. It doesn't bother me too much, but they do have a point.

    Obviously, he would have figured out that whole budget problem in the hour or two it probably took him to shoot a scene in the movie. You know, like how Obama obviously doesn't care about America because he spends two hours each year picking NCAA tournament games and talking about the NBA with Marv Albert. Politics is serious bidness.

    On-topic: I'm psyched for both of these movies, although both will probably be rentals for me.
