Desperado is great - definately one of Rodriguez's best films. QT's scenes are just hilarious - the joke is brilliantly delivered - laughed my little socks of. OUATIM wasn't as good as Desperado but Johnny Depp was fantastic in it.

I am a fan of the whole El Mariachi trilogy and my favourite is probably El Mariachi, but Desperado is excellent. OUATIM was good and i still felt Rodriguez in it, but it was a bit too different from the rest of the trilogy, though over time i convinced myself that it was in line with the rest of the trilogy.

There's nothing funnier than a remote control guitar case, a guaitar case bazooka, a guitar case flame thrower, etc. I love it!


But Quentin's bar joke is great..so great....that I've repeated it to atleast 3 other people before.

This is exactly what I think about it. I don't really know what Rodriguez tried to do with OUATIM...

lol the joke rocks i have used it a few times and it has raised a few smiles.

I love Desperado , it is a film that totally grips and QT at the beginning is excellent and opens the story up nicely.

In the commentary he says it's like a sequel to another sequel - so it's like two movies into one. That's why you see a bunch of flashbacks where the general murders Carolina. Th plot is quite complex though, too much information to comprehend, there are too many things going on at once.

He was trying to make something that wasn't just a mindless action movie. It's really two movies in one. Robert always intended to do a trilogy and the flashbacks are from his intended third film. Salma Hayek wasn't available for a full shoot so he took what he had planned and mixed it with Quentin's idea to pay homage to Sergio Leone and the Fistful of Dollars Trilogy (mostly The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly).

As far as Robert is concerned this is the fourth movie. The flashbacks are from the third movie. A movie that just doesn't exist. Kinda like how Royal Tenenbaums is adapted from a book that doesn't exist.

I've actually sat and watched it three times in a row before.  I always have to rewind and watch Quentin's scenes a couple of times before I progress.  He's so cool in it. 

I love how he goes "You owe me three hundred dollars, Punta."  He totally mispronounces every word he says in Spanish.  Hilarious.
