Machete Don't Fuck Around

Though my records may be incomplete, "Machete" marks what I believe is a notable Hollywood first: the fake trailer that has made it all the way to the big screen. Conceived as part of the Tarantino-Rodriguez "Grindhouse" experience, full-fledged "Machete" rumors began to swirl almost immediately after the original double-bill's opening. It wasn't hard to see why either, as Rodriguez had hit on a near perfect storm of post-modern amazingness. Combining one part down-market character actor, one part brilliant genre homage, and one part inspired casting, the results were virtually guaranteed.
