VIDEO: Apocalypto (2006)

In Mexico during the decline of Mayan civilization, a hunter (Rudy Youngblood) escapes from bad guys who capture his tribe for human sacrifice. He’s got to rescue his wife and son before rain fills the well where he hid them, along the way getting tortured nearly as much as Jesus in Mel’s previous movie.

VIDEO: Hellboy (2004)

Ron Perlman is a young demon summoned from hell during WWII to be a secret Axis weapon, but instead gets captured by American forces to use his powers for good. When Nazis return sixty years later, Hellboy and his elite super-powered defense team are humanity’s only hope!

VIDEO: Delta Farce (2007)

Renegado gets angry at Delta Farce, the disastrously unfunny comedy starring Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and DJ Qualls as a group of National Guardsmen who crash land in Mexico and for some reason think they’re in Iraq. The movie scores some points for casting Danny Trejo as the bad guy, and the exquisite Marisol Nichols as his woman, but immediately forfeits those points by including Jeff Dunham and his talking jalapeño puppet.

VIDEO: Top Cat: The Movie (2011)

In this episode, the Renegado takes a look at Don Gato y Su Pandilla, the 2011 Mexican-made film adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera character Top Cat, who’s about as beloved by American audiences as Huckleberry Hound or Quick Draw McGraw, and yet has inexplicably achieved wide popularity in Mexico and South America.
