I haven't seen Captain Phillips yet. Obviously, it's the best new movie of the week. Its 8 on IMDb dwarfs the three new movies I did see, which average a 5.5. All in all, a rather dreary week.

Danny Trejo has a real life story that's at least as interesting as the many hard-bitten heroes and villains he's played. After spending much of his early life in and out of prison, he found a renewed focus in the film industry. I recently had a chance to talk to the iconic actor.

'Machete Kills' Should Just Die Already

In August, Entertainment Weekly published an interview with Joss Whedon in which, at one point, he laments about the state of movies today relying too much on already established popular culture. He does so by complaining about one particular scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: "A movie has to be complete within itself; it can't just build off the first one or play variations. You know that thing in Temple of Doom where they revisit the shooting trick? ... That's what you don't want. And I feel that's what all of culture is becoming -- it's becoming that moment." Now, this is a very astute observation (and I've written about this quote before), but these words came rushing back to me as I watched a terrible movie called Machete Kills, because that entire movie's existence seems to be built on "that" moment.

Movie Review: Machete Kills

Machete, which turned veteran character actor Danny Trejo into a leading man, was a wild and wildly violent action-comedy, a spoof of exploitation films of the 1970s. So, obviously, is Machete Kills. How much of a spoof?
