NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. In this edition of the Movie Skewer, the Film Renegado enlists the help of two Latino friends to take on Dragonball Evolution, the long-anticipated big screen adaption of a popular anime/manga, directed by James Wong (Final Destination).
Get ready for some forced silliness! Casa de Mi Padre stars Will Ferrell in a role that requires him to speak perfect Spanish, and it's as stupid as you think it is.
A Mexican drug lord embarks upon an epic suicide mission to Iraq to rescue his brother and bring him back home. A parody of the drug lord lifestyle and action movies in general, Saving Private Perez is a movie you can't miss, and the Renegado is here to tell you why!
A young priest is sent to a church in a small town. His arrival sets off a chain reaction of thorny politics, sexual relationships, and betrayal, after he falls in love with an underage girl. Renegado dives in to find out if the controversy is enough to make the film worth watching.
Renegado watches Nacho Libre, a movie where, for reasons beyond the understanding of mere mortals, Jack Black plays a Mexican monk who becomes a lucha libre wrestler. Sure, he's trying too hard with the fake accent, but is the movie really that bad? Find out in the video!
The cast has completely changed since the previous movies, with Jessica Alba as the spy kids' mother, Community's Joel Mchale as a spy hunter, and the voice of Ricky Gervais giving a terrible performance as a robot dog. This movie stinks in every possible sense of the word.
A chihuahua named Chloe (voiced by Drew Barrymore) gets dog-napped in Mexico in this Disney film about talking dogs that somehow attracted a decent cast, even though none of them can do much to save this movie.
Jack (Adam Sandler) gets a visit from his identical twin Jill (also Adam Sandler) and "wacky" hijinks ensue, including Jill dating both a stereotypical Mexican gardener and Al Pacino, who's playing... himself? It's a comedy so devoid of humor, you can feel your life draining away as you watch it.
Juni Cortez enters a virtual reality game where he must stop the evil Toy Maker, played by a confused and over the top Sylvester Stallone... who also plays his own henchmen? Not only that, but there are brief appearances from the likes of Selena Gomez, George Clooney, Salma Hayek, and Elijah Wood. Can the Renegado survive the ridiculous plot and endless parade of awful cameos?
Renegado dives into the madness of the world of Alejandro Jodorowski with two reviews of his first film, Fando and Lis. The movie follows the two title characters on a journey through an apocalyptic wasteland as they descend into madness.
Renegado faces Robert Rodriguez's second attempt at making a movie for kids. In this installment, the siblings find themselves on a strange island with Ray Harryhausen-inspired hybrid creatures created by a crazy scientist named Romero (Steve Buscemi). Also, there's Ricardo Montalbán in a wheelchair.
Mexican Batwoman stars the beautiful Maura Monti as a super-heroine who must stop a nefarious doctor from creating a race of fish people from dead lucha libre wrestlers, all the while punching out bad guys, solving crimes, and wearing a bikini. Just like Batman!
In this episode, Renegado begins a retrospective of the original Spy Kids trilogy. In the first installment, Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) and Ingrid Cortez (Carla Gugino) are international spies that have to be rescued by their kids, who become spies themselves and save their parents from the silly clutches of the evil mastermind Floop (Alan Cumming).
While everybody else is watching the new Batman movie, Renegado dons a mask and talks about one of the original inspirations for Batman, Zorro!
Three mighty reviewers (Film Renegado, Mr. Mendo, and Sofie Liv) team up to review the movie where Spider-Man is a psycho rapist crime boss who has to be stopped by Captain America and El Santo, in one of the most nonsensical and confusing plots ever.
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.
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!
Film Renegado reviews The Mexican, which is not his life story, but rather the 2001 romantic comedy-slash-mob caper flick starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts, though rarely at the same time.
It's that mostly forgotten season where David E. Kelley fired half the cast and brought in James Spader and William Shatner (as Denny Crane!) for what was essentially a year-long setup for the spin-off Boston Legal.
Vampires are killing lesbians in Canada, and the only person who can stop them is the greatest vampire hunter of all: Jesus Christ! And just in case that's not insane enough for you, God sends the masked Mexican wrestler El Santo to help out.
