Once Upon A Time In Mexico is the best I’ve seen out of Rodriguez, who beleive it or not filmed the entire thing in under two months! Well I think you’ve all seen the special features and heard the commentary track. Although I don’t get why Banderas is always saying the the who series is like a comedy to him. I see a bit of humor here and there but a comedy? Anyway, the soundtrack is also fantastic, especially the opening credit sequence which is one of my favorite openings in a film. The film has also that epic look to it, the images so crisp, it’s like watching an HD DVD (I don’t own one, too expensive). Johnny Depp is fantastic as Sands, he looks like a badass in the end with the black attire and the silenced machine-pistols. What a film.

“Pit bull?”

"Yes pit bull"

El Mariachi is funny, and I don’t mean fucked up funny, the good type of funny. Of all the Mariachi movies this has more realism to it. In the new movies Robert merged Azul with El, so in a way he’s sensible yet has that quietness within his character like the man with no name. But in El Mariachi, he is mistaken for another person who also happens to be a Mariachi. Did any of you know that “Moco” stands for “Bugger”, that’s one weird fucking name to use for a character, anyway for a short film, this movie has more heart than any other of Robert’s movies. Seriously how many people can make their own feature with only 7,000 - 8,000 dollars! That’s crazy right there. Has anyone noticed that Pulp Fiction, El Mariachi, both used Silenced machine pistols?! I think that’s a refrence to Scarface.
