Fine, for what it is

This is essentially an interview with Robert Rodriguez, in which he deals solely with the topic of HD shooting. Occasionally, as Rodriguez is talking, scenes from the movie, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, as well as material from behind the scenes is shown, emphasizing his points about HD versus traditional film. From what he says, I would guess that his introduction to HD(by none other than George Lucas, on the Farm) was one of the deciding factors in Robert opting to make three Sin City comics into a movie(and judging from his filmography here on IMDb, he's still interested in making more), which is arguably the best thing to come out of his discovery of the format, at least so far. Running at about thirteen minutes, this is informational more than entertaining... which is not to say that hearing Rob's opinion on why HD kicks film's butt any day of the week isn't interesting. Trejo is brought up by Rodriguez for half a minute or so, to allow the latter to emphasize the facial features of the former, expressing joy in being able to show the audience every line in full detail. For the last few minutes, a few questions put forth by the audience at the interview are answered. For anyone interested in hearing Robert Rodriguez speak of his experiences with shooting on HD, this is worth watching. I recommend this to anyone finding themselves in the aforementioned group, as well as any fan of Rodriguez. 7/10
