Last summer Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino released their love child that is Grindhouse. Rodriguez had some fun and made a trailer for a fake film that he titled “Machete” with Danny Trejo (Robert Rodriguez’s second cousin), about a Mexican who is sent to assassinate a politician and is double-crossed and is now seeking revenge against everyone.
Over the weekend passed “21” took the box office for an expected win. The hype that this movie received a good amount of hype and no matter how amazing “Horton Hears a Who!” is it just can’t last top of the box office making more than US$20 million a weekend for more than two weeks. However, the big surprise for me has to be Superhero Movie taking third place at the box office making US$9.5 million from just under 3000 theatres. And Drillbit Taylor clings in the top 5 with a 45% drop in weekend revenue and a one spot drop in rankings for the money makings over the weekend.
I'm Andrew, a software developer/all around technologist by day and a film enthusiast by night. I grew up on the silly things of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The Three Amigos and Nightmare on Elm Street, so it makes perfect sense to me to have my love for film become ever expanding by the minute.
I started writing about film somewhere about 2005 on Facebook, and slowly but surely I moved on to blogging here on the internet. I've been featured with a few other publications along the way and am always looking for the opportunity to do more with this passion of mine.
So enjoy the words, listen to the many podcasts I'll do in the years to come, and let me know what you think.
