Once Upon a Time in Mexico


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.


This week, on a very special episode of Reject Radio, movie slave monkey for UGO.com Matt Patches shows up to give us hell. After some witty banter, he and Cole discuss the finer points of racial tension, bring Jan de Bont to a gun fight, and take a look back on our entirely appropriate relationship with Robert Rodriguez. Plus, we find time to review Machete, The American, and Going the Distance.
