James Cameron was originally supposed to direct it, but he finally stepped away and handed it over to Robert Rodriguez and remained on just as a… read more

After years of false starts, it appears that Alita: Battle Angel finally has a star. James Cameron has been talking about adapting the Japanese manga series Battle Angel Alita for far longer than I can remember. Sometime ago Cameron finally realized he didn’t have the time to direct it due to the numerous Avatar sequels… read more

Talks are moving once again on the live-action Jonny Quest film with a surprising name attached to the director’s chair. It’s easy to forget that Robert Rodriguez has made some very family friendly films such as his Spy Kids series. Most often folks think of violent films such as Sin City when they hear his… read more

Machete Trailer

Robert Rodriguez has a style of his own. It’s distinctive, you recognize it immediately, and at least you can say it doesn’t really look like anything else coming out of Hollywood these days. Machete started life as one of the fake movie trailers in the Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino joint project, Grindhouse.  It turned out that… read more

All I can say is that this at least looks better than the two Aliens Vs. Predator movies … course, that isn’t saying much.
