So this is totally random but last night while eating at La Carreta, my favorite Mexican joint, my good buddy and fantasy football whipping boy Jeremy mentioned a movie that I thought was well beyond his knowledge of cinema.
Maybe Iâ€™m just on a Robert Rodriguez kick right now (which I am, please check previous posts) but man I thought no one and I mean no one in this berg known as Jamestown would have ever seen this film, but oh has he ever.
Those who have seen â€œOnce Upon a Time in Mexicoâ€ may have known it precursor was â€œDesperado.â€ No biggie there.
But, because of my extensive background in cinema (I worked at a video store for like two years, yes I know VIDEO) I saw the flick that predated â€œDesperado.â€
â€œEl Mariachiâ€ (please add Sergio Leone spaghetti western music now)
Normally this is where I would say â€œbook it, done.â€ But this film has it all, a low budget, an excellent DOP and most importantly, a stunning foot chase as the big action scene.
I recommend this movie strongly to anyone who has Netflix, well because Iâ€™m a dork who enjoys cheesy shot-em-ups.
But really if this trailer doesnâ€™t sell it I donâ€™t know what will…
By the way we have a winner for my last blog entry about the crazy Jacko fans. My ski buddy Cocktail, (donâ€™t ask, his last name is Cruise) spent his valuable work place hours dominating my blog. Iâ€™ll update this later with a picture of the goods.
By the way those in need of the best stage lighting around, Iâ€™m talking primo goods, I know a guy.
