Remember when Danny Trejo wasn’t a lead actor and instead played smaller menacing rolls as a hitman or generic tough guy? I hate to say it, but Danny Trejo was starring in much better films when that was the case. His recent surge as Machete and its sequel (which weren’t particularly good but rather hilarious in their horribleness) has shown that Trejo is better in small amounts where his inability to really act isn’t exposed for 90-minutes at a time. And the recent western action film Dead in Tombstone just reiterates how true that is. It doesn’t help that the film is horribly written and the action is uninspired, but Trejo really doesn’t help things at all.

Filmmaker Blake Freeman puts unorthodox beliefs and so-called experts to the test in A Journey to Planet Sanity, his reality based documentary comedy opening December 6th that debunks aliens, psychics and all things paranormal. Freeman’s chance encounter with a 69-year-old food deliveryman named LeRoy Tessina, who has spent his life savings on trying to protect himself from aliens and paranormal ghosts, leads to a hilarious cross-country journey in search of the truth. In an exclusive interview, Freeman talked about the inspiration behind his documentary comedy, how ordering takeout one night introduced him to an amazing documentary subject who became the catalyst for an exciting story, how he convinced LeRoy to participate, the most memorable moments of their journey together, their adventures in Roswell with ufology experts Don Ray Walton and Prophet Yahweh and other psychics and shamans, and how not having a clue what they were making or where »

Top 10 Duncan Bowles 4 Dec 2013 - 06:45
Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »
Christian Sesma is a fellow Coachella Valley resident and it.s heartwarming that the accomplished director always gives back to the community every time he.s making a new movie. Sesma.s new flick, .The Night Crew,. is being shot in the valley, and not only did he hire his desert crew, he also partnered with a non-profit organization to help with some aspects of the movie.s production design.
I sat down with the director before for his .Shoot the Hero,. and now, I officially visited his set to talk about .The Night Crew. and its community involvement. The film, co-written by Paul Sloan (who also stars in the film) and Sesma, stars Danny Trejo (.Machete. movies), Jason Mewes (.Clerks. movies, .Shoot the Hero.), Bokeem Woodbine (.Riddick,. .Total Recall.) and Luke Goss (.Hellboy II: The Golden Army,. .Death Race. sequels). .The Night Crew. is slated for release summer of »
I don't think I've seen Danny Glover this flippant on screen since his days with Mel Gibson in the Lethal Weapon franchise of films. But I like it! Glover joins Danny Trejo in a sequel to the 2012 comical action movie Bad Ass, which Trejo headlined. The sequel, representing a new plurality as Glover teams up with Trejo, is titled Bad Asses, which will see Trejo return as bad ass mofo Frank Vega, a Vietnam veteran who, in the first film, became a local hero after saving a man from attackers on a city bus and decides to take action when his best friend is murdered and the police show little interest in solving the crime. In the upcoming sequel, Bad Asses, Vega is back to kick ass »

This weekend saw Hollywood lose another of it’s stars. Paul Walker, best known for his role as Brian O’Conner in The Fast And The Furious, was victim of a fatal car crash. The nature of his death, coupled with the fact that he was only forty has left everyone saddened and stunned. It’s now being reported production on Fast & Furious 7 has been halted for cast and crew to process their grief while Universal looks at how to move forward.
The last twenty-four hours have seen the world of social media ablaze with reactions from all corners of the film and television community. The beautiful thing about all tweets, Facebook updates, etc, is the overwhelming outpouring of love and respect for the star. The responses of those closet to him, his co-stars on Fast 7, are as expected gut-wrenchingly sad. The really striking thing though is that even people »

This is the age we live in: Three years ago, cell phone video of a fist fight on an Oakland city bus went viral across the Internet, spawning the “Epic Beard Man” meme. In 2012, Danny Trejo (Machete Kills) starred in a low budget, direct-to-video action flick titled Bad Ass – a movie with the premise, “What if Epic Beard Man turned into a Death Wish-style vigilante?”
Featuring appearances by Charles S. Dutton (American Horror Story) and Ron Perlman (Pacific Rim), Bad Ass apparently overcame its absurd roots to make a good-enough deal of cash to warrant a sequel. Now, the first trailer for Bad Asses shows off its primary hook: veteran action star Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon) joins up with Trejo for an expanded round of geriatric butt-kicking.

While Danny Trejo’s best role may very well have been having his head ride atop a turtle in that one Breaking Bad episode, you can see the action star still kicking butt in this trailer for Bad Asses, the simply titled sequel to 2012’s Bad Ass. Once again, Trejo plays retired street hero Frank Vega, this time tasked with protecting his neighborhood from any number of "threatening predicaments." Bonus: Danny Glover joins the cast as Trejo’s “not that cranky” sidekick. The film is being released straight to DVD sometime in 2014, but it sure looks like a frothy good time. »

From Anchor Bay Films, Sneak Peek footage from director Keoni Waxman's new action feature "Force Of Execution", starring Steven Seagal, Ving Rhames, Bren Foster and Danny Trejo, available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo and DVD, December 17, 2013:
"...criminal kingpin 'Mr. Alexander' is an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality.
"For a prison hit, he sends his best enforcer 'Roman Hurst'. But when things go wrong, Hurst is forced to pay the price of his 'failure': banishment in the city that he almost once ruled.
"But a war is brewing for the soul of the city between 'Alexander', a cold-blooded gangster known as 'The Iceman' and a merciless Mexican cartel. Hurst, with the help of an ex-con restaurant owner, who has a few hidden moves of his own, will rediscover his own will to survive the coming conflict…and to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him. »

The fact that the first Machete was ever made into a feature film was something of a miracle. It started life as a simple fake trailer meant to tag along for the ride that was Quentin Tarantino’s and Robert Rodriquez’s double feature, Grindhouse. It ended up being the few minutes of the whole three hour cinematic experience that people responded to the most.
A few years later, love from fans lead to Danny Trejo’s first lead role as…Machete. Two sequels were planned, the first of which hit theaters this year. It didn’t light up the box office, so most can assume a third outing to finish the trilogy shouldn’t be expected.

There’s a headline I never thought I’d write. You knew the success of Sharkndo was going to lead to this, and it has. Allow me to introduce you to Volcano Zombies. Yeah, it’s exactly what you think it is. Here’s what the press release reveals:

In the meantime, this Thanksgiving-week edition of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at one of my most anticipated family films of next year – Muppets Most Wanted.
Premise: While on a grand world tour, Kermit the Frog and the other Muppets find themselves unwillingly involved in a European jewel-heist caper headed by Constantine, a criminal mastermind and Kermit lookalike, and his dastardly sidekick Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais).
My take: As I imagine is the case for many people of my generation, I grew up loving the Muppets. I’ve seen their movies many times, Muppet Babies was one of my favorite cartoons when I was little, and The Muppet Christmas Carol »

Seriously speaking, we have no idea whether or not Danny Trejo actually stars in Voodoo Possession. History has taught us that just because he's on the box and top billed, it doesn't necessarily mean he'll be in a flick for more than five minutes.
Imagine an insatiable demon that feeds on blood, thrives on pain, and reaches from beyond the grave to torment the living and the dead. For believers and skeptics alike, there is nothing in this world or the next to rival the relentless evil of a Voodoo Possession.

Machete Kills is the sequel to the film Machete, a film that was created from a fake trailer that was part of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.s Grindhouse. As such, it was a sequel no one asked for, but that doesn.t mean it.s the worst thing you could buy into. After all, Rodriguez was still on board to direct this time around, and a slew of famous faces also joined the cast. Soon, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing Machete Kills onto Blu-ray and DVD on January 21. If you don.t really care about that bizarre box art, it may be a better call to look into the Digital HD copy of the flick, which will be released a few weeks early, hitting the market on January 7. The new film was in the works for quite some time, with star Danny Trejo stating way back in 2010 that »
