    Do you always get so fixated when some makes a typo? Oh and did I say anything about queasy? I didn't think so. I think I made it very clear about the racial undertones in the movie, and had no problem with the action scenes. Of course these movies are just satires basically of the black sploitation movies of the 70's except that Hispanics are used instead of blacks.

    My esteemed colleagues, we appear to be digressing at an alarming rate. I re-assert my original thesis that this film known as "Machete" is a brilliant piece of satire lampooning racially insensitive action films of bygone decades. Even in these difficult times, a viewing at the local cinema is well worth the price of admission, and should absolutely be seen by anyone who enjoys such satire.

    Thank you.

    Just got back from it, I'm amazed that someone can not be in on the joke. It's the exact same line of humor as Black Dynamite and it's self aware in a way that's still fun throughout.

    Edit: My one criticism is that it failed to cure my writer's block, which is why I left my desk and went to the movies. So you can hold that against it.

    Exactly. The "RACISM" was so over the top it was hilarious. I loved it for the parody aspect.

    Saw it earlier today.

    I find absolutely no fault with it because I inched slowly closer to seeing Jessica Alba without any clothing.

    Cinematic perfection.

    I was really torn between who I was rooting to get naked more.

    Good point. I was kinda hoping for some more skin from The Twins, as well.

    The lady who played Lindsay Lohan's mom had a great body, too.
