'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
Robert Rodriguez is someone who likes to keep busy. On top of the upcoming releases of 'Machete Kills' and 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' and his involvement with a 'From Dusk Till Dawn' TV adaptation, he'll also be directing the pilot for a series that will mimic the James Bond films, but give them a Mexican flavor.
Amid the flurry of movie and TV adaptations being announced for Upfront week, here comes one we certainly weren't expecting. Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's vampire classic 'From Dusk Till Dawn' will birth a TV adaptation to be featured on Rodriguez's upcoming "El Rey" network, which will also feature a new series from 'Star Trek' writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Find out all about the new venture inside!
If 'Machete Kills' is any indication, director Robert Rodriguez has exceptional taste in women. Just look at the cast, which is filled with names like Jessica Alba, an all-grown-up Alexa Vega and Amber Heard. Not only that, but he knows what the fans like, seeing them sexy and guns a blazin'. Just watch out for Sofia Vergara. Her new 'Machete Kills' poster reveals her sexiness could also mean the death of you.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill for' is shooting now, and director Robert Rodriguez -- much like Bryan Singer -- knows how to use twitter to keep people interested in his upcoming projects. He's just tweeted some photos from the set that show some of the before and after process of making the film. The latest photos feature Josh Brolin.
