So It's Only, Like, About Damn Time!


As you can see above, we're finally getting Blu-ray releases of El Mariachi, Desperado, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico -- the films that were Robert Rodriguez's own take on "The Man With No Name" trilogy. This time, though, the gunslinger is a mariachi . . . and he's in modern-day Mexico!

Of course, I have no idea why the hell the first two movies are being packaged together on the same disc, while the third film is being sold separately. All three will be hitting shelves on Jan. 4, though, so we have less than two weeks for awesome greatness!

Well, only Desperado was awesome. The other two are "meh" at best. I think they knew this, which is why Desperado is not being sold alone. Heh, heh . . . smart, Sony. Smart. Even smarter would have been to release all 3 together in one nice trilogy box set. But then, what do I know about video marketing?

Anyway, click here and here if you want to read the one-sheets.


  1. With a cast like that...they can't go wrong.

  2. And yet, it did Kim. That last movie went very, very wrong. The middle one, Desperado, is the only truly great film out of the bunch.

  3. I agree, David. Desperado was the best of the three.

    But, you know what I'm really glad is FINALLY coming out on Blu-Ray? Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2! It's not til Feb, but still, it's about damned time!! :-)


Panama Trip - Day 1: Here There Be Balboas!

In late May, 2017 I embarked on a trip of a lifetime. A trip to Panama's steamy tropical province, Bocas del Toro. Now, before 2017 ...
