I haven’t seen Machete, but even still I have the suspicion that I’m in love with it. It rocks a certain absurdity that I can get behind. Robby Rodriguez is following up the original flick with Machete Kills, and is showing no signs of mitigating the bonkers.
Wee! The Sin City Hopes You’re Not Tired Of Its Visual Motif train continues onward! Into the sky! Into infinity! Into theaters next October! Oh, look at that segue. The touch. The power.
How do you top something as absurd as Machete? You cast Hollywood’s least favorite misogynist/anti-Semite in the sequel and pray you can film the movie before they finally finish self-imploding.
It seems that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is actually happening. The title is segueing from the world of the ethereal and into the reality. Man-In-Charge Robert Rodriguez has helped to condense the vapors further, letting MTV in on some of the sequel’s details.
Oh, to dream of Sin City 2. There was a day when the merest mention of the movie got my little noir ultra-violent core most excite!!!!, but not anymore. I’ve been deceived too many times. Told the film was on its way to fruition over and over again. Now at SXSW, Robert Rodriguez is trying to get my hopes up. Again.
When the first Sin City came out, everyone was all “Oh hey sick!, Rodriguez is going to be making a sequel! Totally gnarly.” It was so long ago that gnarly was in fashion. Since then we’ve been waiting. And waiting. And waiting. While he makes Spy Kids 4D: Jessica Alba’s Stretched Poon.
Well, now it’s really maybe sort of coming. So says Rodriguez.
There’s been talk for a while that Robert Rodriguez may be the dude to direct the Deadpool movie. And in the last day or so it seems to be more and more likely we could get this shit in our welcoming nerd mouths. Surely you jest! Naw son, it’s really happening. Apparently at this point Fox and Rodriguez are in active negotiations. I say? Give this dude what he fucking wants.
Deadpool is, at his best, an absolutely ridiculous, ultra-violent chap. Rodriguez, at his best, brings movies of absolutely ridiculous ultra-violence. In a perfect world this shit is a hard R, and we can see some gruesome hysteria. But now I’m gettin’ greedy. Seriously though, the fucked up mind behind Machete, Planet Terror, and the adaptation of Sin City? Win, win, win!
