'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.
