“There’s thousands of them, and they’re pissed.”

Despite a plea from the cast and crew for Piranha 3D to be considered for Oscar nomination recently, I think it is fairly safe to say that Piranha 3D won’t be getting too close to any awards this season. In fact, I think it’s fairly safe to assume that Piranha 3D is not one of the best films out this year. A mixture of a weak storyline, bad acting, bad directing, poor use of 3D and weak attempts to push sex and blood into our faces rounds up everything about Piranha 3D. However, there is also some small amount of charm in there. Piranha 3D is exploitation cinema at its highest. It has the gore, it has a remake, it has a sequel, it has the sex, and it has the extra couple of dollars earned for it being in 3D. It knows that it’s never going to leave much of an impression on the audience, except a few cheap laughs. (more…)

Trailer Review:
[Reviewed by: Justin Wagner]

The long-awaited movie Machete (based off the faux trailer shown during Quentin Tarantino’s half of the Grindhouse double feature, Death Proof) has finally been set for a feature film release this September 3rd. Though I’m sure many people are excited about this (me included), this trailer lacks some of the excitement the one featured in Grindhouse had. While the old trailer had a sense of tension and humor, the newer one seems as though the movie is taking a much more serious route. Maybe it is just the way the trailer is edited, but I really hope that Machete can keep the campiness shown in the Grindhouse trailer and mix it with some serious tones instead of getting rid of the camp altogether. Knowing Robert Rodriguez, though, he will probably pack in some of his classic camp, and I can’t wait to see how that plays out with an all-star cast like this one. With the addition of Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, and Michelle Rodriguez to the film, I’m sure the story has more depth and has mildly changed from the original concept shown in Grindhouse making me even more excited in how Machete will turn out. Now I’m interested in how a Thanksgiving movie would look.
