1. El Mariachi (1992)
R | 81 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
A traveling mariachi is mistaken for a murderous criminal and must hide from a gang bent on killing him.
Votes: 58,455 | Gross: $2.04M
Made on a shoestring budget, El Mariachi's story is not new. However, the movie has so much energy that it's thoroughly enjoyable.
2. Desperado (1995)
R | 104 min | Action, Thriller
A gunslinger is embroiled in a war with a local drug runner.
Votes: 157,753 | Gross: $25.63M
Rodriguez's second feature may be a rambling, derivative exercise in gratuitous violence, but its determination to proceed as if the word 'restraint' never existed makes for gleeful entertainment.
3. Four Rooms (1995)
R | 98 min | Comedy
Four interlocking tales that take place in a fading hotel on New Year's Eve.
Votes: 89,350 | Gross: $4.30M
Four Rooms comes stocked with a ton of talent on both sides of the camera, yet only manages to add up to a particularly uneven -- and dismayingly uninspired -- anthology effort.
4. From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
R | 108 min | Action, Crime, Horror
Two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in a truck stop populated by vampires, with chaotic results.
Votes: 256,375 | Gross: $25.75M
A pulpy crime drama/vampire film hybrid, From Dusk Till Dawn is an uneven but often deliriously enjoyable B-movie.
5. The Faculty (1998)
R | 104 min | Horror, Sci-Fi
Students suspect that their teachers are aliens after bizarre occurrences.
Votes: 102,333 | Gross: $40.06M
Rip-off of other sci-fi thrillers.
6. Spy Kids (2001)
PG | 88 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
The children of secret-agent parents must save them from danger.
Votes: 97,857 | Gross: $112.72M
A kinetic and fun movie that's sure to thrill children of all ages.
7. Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams (2002)
PG | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
The Cortez siblings set out for a mysterious island, where they encounter a genetic scientist and a set of rival spy kids.
Votes: 53,725 | Gross: $85.85M
Though the concept is no longer fresh, Spy Kids 2 is still an agreeable and energetic romp.
8. Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003)
PG | 84 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
Carmen's caught in a virtual reality game designed by the Kids' new nemesis, the Toymaker. It's up to Juni to save his sister, and ultimately the world.
Votes: 48,487 | Gross: $111.76M
The movie will be found wanting if one is not taken in by the 3-D visuals.
9. Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003)
R | 102 min | Action, Thriller
Hitman "El Mariachi" becomes involved in international espionage involving a psychotic CIA agent and a corrupt Mexican general.
Votes: 143,957 | Gross: $56.36M
Violent, pulpy, loopy fun, with Depp stealing the show.
10. Sin City (2005)
R | 124 min | Crime, Thriller
A film that explores the dark and miserable town, Basin City, and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in violent corruption.
Votes: 710,868 | Gross: $74.10M
Visually groundbreaking and terrifically violent, Sin City brings the dark world of Frank Miller's graphic novel to vivid life.
11. The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D (2005)
PG | 93 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A young boy is recruited by his imaginary friends Sharkboy and Lavagirl to help save their planet.
Votes: 26,192 | Gross: $39.18M
The decision to turn this kiddie fantasy into a 3-D film was a miscalculation.
12. Planet Terror (2007)
Not Rated | 105 min | Action, Comedy, Horror
After an experimental bio-weapon is released, turning thousands into zombie-like creatures, it's up to a rag-tag group of survivors to stop the infected and those behind its release.
Packed with hot women, a ninja-like character and zombies, it's the kind of movie a 15-year-old would make with a limitless budget and little concern for ratings. Good thing he knows how to make an incredibly fun movie.
13. Shorts (2009)
PG | 89 min | Comedy, Family, Fantasy
A young boy's discovery of a colorful, wish-granting rock causes chaos in the suburban town of Black Falls when jealous kids and scheming adults alike set out to get their hands on it.
Votes: 6,173 | Gross: $20.92M
Shorts has imagination and energy, but most viewers beyond elementary school will likely tire of the kiddie humor and sensory overload.
14. Machete (2010)
R | 105 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
After being set-up and betrayed by the man who hired him to assassinate a Texas Senator, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss.
Votes: 180,804 | Gross: $26.59M
Machete is messy, violent, shallow, and tasteless -- and that's precisely the point of one of the summer's most cartoonishly enjoyable films.

PG | 89 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A retired spy is called back into action, and to bond with her new step-children, she invites them along for the adventure to stop the evil Timekeeper from taking over the world.
Votes: 19,454 | Gross: $38.54M
Burdened by a rote plot and unfunny scatological humor, All the Time in the World suggests that the Spy Kids franchise has run its course.
16. Machete Kills (2013)
R | 107 min | Action, Crime, Sci-Fi
The U.S. government recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
Votes: 69,032 | Gross: $8.01M
While possessed with the same schlocky lunacy as its far superior predecessor, Machete Kills loses the first installment's spark in a less deftly assembled sequel.
17. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)
R | 102 min | Crime, Thriller
Some of Sin City's most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Votes: 138,327 | Gross: $13.76M
A Dame to Kill For boasts the same stylish violence and striking visual palette as the original Sin City, but lacks its predecessor's brutal impact.

A deactivated female cyborg is revived, but cannot remember anything of her past life and goes on a quest to find out who she is.
