Synopsis

After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don't know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for January 4th, 2011

The first week of the year and this year starts the same way last year ends, without a whole lot of must have choices. Machete is topping the chart, and it's a good movie, but there are not enough extras on the DVD / Blu-ray to rate as Pick of the Week material.

After going over the list for a third time, I have to conclude that there are no Pick of the Week releases this time around. That should change next week. More...

Featured Blu-ray / DVD Review: Machete

Back in 2007, Robert Rodriguez teamed up with Quentin Tarantino to make Grindhouse, an homage to the exploitation films they grew up on. The double-feature recreated the grindhouse experience right down to the scratchy print, the missing scenes, and even the trailers between the double-feature. While it earned good reviews, it wasn't able to find an audience in theaters. Despite this, there was such a large amount of buzz surrounding one of the fake trailers that it was turned into a feature-length movie. That movie is Machete. There are some films that have taken a stranger route to cinema's but not many. More...
