BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
If you were to have (or do have) a stack of Woody Allen films in your home and you were about to watch one with a group of friends, Blue Jasmine would not be at the top of the pile. In fact, it probably would be at or very near the body of the pile. Not because it lacks humor. Not because it lacks a decent cast or a well-written script. Blue Jasmine is a fine movie, with all of the necessary elements to earn it a few Oscar nods. It’s also an uncomfortable one.
Are you into Danny Trejo’s famous character Machete? We have some excellent exclusive clips to share with you, but they are both chock full of spoilers, so if you haven’t caught the film yet, you will be spoiled. Additionally, the clips are NSFW.

Feeling a little under the weather. Whatever Ebola-like virus Little Rotten Week was carrying around, well she shipped it in my direction. When this ends up being the contagion that takes down the planet, we can consider her patient zero. See you all when the chaos subsides. While we wait for the end of the world let’s talk pirates and machetes
Machete Kills has its titular anti-hero (Danny Trejo) recruited by the president (Charlie Sheen) to take down a deranged arms dealer (Mel Gibson), who has an army of super soldiersplayed by Lady Gaga, Vanessa Hudgens, Antionio Banderas, A Better Life’s Demian Bichir, Cuba Gooding Jr, and Sofia Vergara as a brothel owner with lingerie that really bring a man to his knees.
The above clip, via IndieWire, presents just a piece of the radical world that Danny Trejo’s titular character Machete calls home. The (hypothetical) President wants marijuana legalized, and also wants to incorporate Nude Tuesdays into the daily way of life. Aw shit yeah, right?
A sequel to Rodriguez's 2010 film and based on a screenplay written by newcomer Kyle Ward, the new movie finds the titular hero (Danny Trejo) called upon by the President of the United States (Carlos Estevez a.k.a. Charlie Sheen) to help in a mission that will prevent a madman arms dealer down in Mexico (Mel Gibson) from launching a deadly missile into space.
The film, scripted by Kyle Ward based on a story by Robert and Marcel Rodriguez, begins as Machete (Trejo) is called upon by the President of the United States (Sheen) for a dangerous mission.

Welcome to fall movie season, where it's all about awards bait if you look in one direction (hello, August: Osage County!) and all about oddball blockbusters if you look in another (happy to see you, Riddick). Like any other time for movie releases, autumn is all about what you make of it, whether that's catching the three-hour French drama about lesbians or counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But if you want an advance look at which films are begging for awards and which are best paired with a giant tub of popcorn, look no further
Machete Kills is a very real movie, as crazy as that still seems. The unlikely sequel to the unlikely Machete, all based on a fake trailer for the unlikely Robert Rodriguez-Quentin Tarantino collaboration Grindhouse, Machete Kills brings back Danny Trejo as the titular fearless killer
First announced to be part of the cast back in June of last year, "Estevez" will be playing the President of the United States in the upcoming Grindhouse thriller, which sees Danny Trejo return in the title role. The film sees the President and Machete forge an alliance in order to stop a psychotic weapons dealer (Mel Gibson) from launching a missile into space.
Based on a screenplay by Kyle Ward and based on a story written by Robert Rodriguez and Marcel Rodriguez, Machete Kills sees Danny Trejo return as the titular ex-Federale to stop a weapons dealer - played by Mel Gibson - from sending a missile into space. Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba will be reprising their roles from the last movie...
Rodriguez will play She in the sequel, which means (I suppose) that she’s different from the character of Luz in the 2010 original. In true sequel fashion, is implementing the plan of escalation, pitting our hero (Danny Trejo) against an “eccentric billionaire arms dealer” who has an elaborate global plan to take over the world.
