Video Show: The Film Renegado

VIDEO: Santo vs. The Clones

To celebrate the birthday of El Santo on September 23, Renegado takes a look at the most recent iteration of the character, Santo vs. The Clones AKA Santo Contra Los Clones, an animated series of shorts produced in 2004 by the Mexican version of Cartoon Network!

VIDEO: Atlantic Rim (2013)

Renegado reviews the inevitable Asylum rip-off of the much-anticipated Pacific Rim, creatively titled Atlantic Rim! In this film, a team of scientists operate giant robots to battle monsters rising up from the Atlantic Ocean, not the Pacific Ocean. See? Totally different!

VIDEO: Brijes 3D (2010)

Renegado returns to Mexican cinema with Brijes 3D (English title: Guardians of the Lost Code),  an animated feature where humans are bonded to animal spirits called “brijes” that give them magical powers. The film wasn’t really successful, which had nothing at all to do with it being a total Digimon rip-off.

VIDEO: Indian Superman (1987)

The Agony Anarchists (Renegado, Mendo, Sofie, and newest member Full of Questions!) return to review a movie that they thought was Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, but instead turned out to be a shameless Bollywood ripoff of Richard Donner’s first Superman movie. They already survived the Filipino Batman and the Turkish Spider-Man, but can they get through this one? Watch and find out!

VIDEO: Cinco de Mayo

It’s the 5th of May, and everybody and their mothers keep calling the Renegado because they think it’s the most important holiday to Mexicans. To put a stop to it, he presents this video where he looks at the history of Cinco de Mayo and puts the holiday in its proper context.

VIDEO: ¡Rob!

Renegado teams up with The Wire to try to make sense of Rob Schneider’s latest terrible attempt at a sitcom. ¡Rob! (yes, it’s written like that) is about an architect who marries into a tightly-knit Mexican-American family, and the worst part about it is they dragged Cheech Marin and Eugenio Derbez into this! That, and it’s insufferably racist. So yeah, just like any other sitcom.

VIDEO: Rejected Pilots: “Cybertron”

This review is in Spanish with English subtitles! The Renegado looks at “Cybertron”, the forgotten, rejected original pilot for VR Troopers, starring Jason David Frank, AKA the Green Ranger, as Adam Steele, a guy who merges with a cyborg in footage recycled from the Japanese series Choujinki Metalder.

VIDEO: Robot Jox (1989)

Renegado wants to build his own giant robot, so he sneaks into a giant robot building facility, of course, and takes a look at a movie with similar themes. Features appearances from Cecil from Good Bad Flicks, and a robot with a chainsaw penis!

VIDEO: Los del Río “Macarena”

Renegado takes a break from his usual format with a music review! In this case, he talks about a little-known song from the ’90s that may or may not have had its own dance craze. And somehow, he convinces several of his fellow Agony Booth reviewers to dance the Macarena for him. On camera.

VIDEO: Chinango (2009)

Renegado takes a look at Chinango, allegedly the first Latin American martial arts movie ever made. Filmed in Mexico in 2006, and not released until 2009, Renegado finds out if this movie measures up with other entries in the martial arts genre, or if he has another Undefeatable on his hands.

VIDEO: Movies That Weren't: Hong Kong Phooey, Marvin the Martian

NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. In 2011, Eddie Murphy signed on to voice Hong Kong Phooey, based on the cartoon about a dog who knows kung fu, but the project fell through. The same director was working on a Marvin the Martian film which also never happened, and now he’s leaked footage from both projects to show us how we dodged two bullets!

VIDEO: Ghostbusters II (1989)

The Renegado ain’t afraid of no underrated movies! In this special series of short reviews, he covers movies that he doesn’t have a lot to say about, but he can tell you why he likes them (or dislikes them). First up, he explains why Ghostbusters II is underrated!
