It’s nice to have Robert Rodriguez‘s good films on blu-ray. When it comes to his usually reliant adult fare films, they’re full of all the things that blu-ray was created for: action, gratuitous violence, and more gratuitous violence. That’s basically what his El Mariachi films are all about, and they’re the better films of his filmography. And while some still aren’t all too pleased with the results we got with Once Upon a Time in Mexico, be grateful you’ll get to see Johnny Depp chewing the scenery perfectly in HD. That’s his film. Considering Depp has had a fairly weak year (quality wise, not box-office wise), it’s nice revisiting a film during these dark times of him actually being fun.
Anyway, here’s what we’re giving away today:
- A two pack blu-ray set of El Mariachi and Desperado.
- And Once Upon a Time in Mexico on blu-ray as well.
So, how do you win and make this a nice little addition to your already overloaded blu-ray collection? Simple, as always. Below in the comments, write a plot-synopsis for a film that you think sounds just like a Robert Rodriguez film. Recall all the tropes and caricatures he’s used in the past, and try to make fun of them.
Contest ends January 20th, 2011. (As always, you must be a US resident to enter and we’ll be contacting the winner via the email associated with the comment.)
The El Mariachi double-pack and Once Upon a Time in Mexico are now on Blu-Ray.
