Remember Epic Beard Man? Well, it turns out they made a movie about him. That's right, somebody's cell phone video of two guys fighting on a bus has been made into a movie... starring Danny Trejo. No, really.
To celebrate the winter solstice, and the end of... disaster movies set in 2012, the Renegado counts down the 5 least awful movies based on a total misunderstanding of the Mayan calendar.
Together, the two luchadores battle the Mexican Dracula, vampire women, the Wolfman, a cyclops, the Mummy, and the Frankenstein monster. It's cheesy, ridiculous fun. In other words, a Santo film.
The Renegado teams up with Sofie Liv and Mr. Mendo to become the ultimate reviewing super team: The Agony Anarchists! Can this brand-new team survive their first mission: a two-hour hour long, tedious Batman and Robin parody musical made in the Philippines? You read that right: a Batman musical.
NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. This time around, the main leads have kids, and they're more annoying than ever, which isn't helped by a ridiculous plot that has nothing to do with them at all. At least the movie still features George Lopez's voice... Wait, why is that a good thing, again?
From the depths of the cheapest Mexican cinema comes Jarry Putter, a softcore porn parody of the Harry Potter franchise (specifically Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone). Renegado and the Porn Critic team up to guide you through this rare, random, and weird gem.
The Renegado takes a look at one of only two shark movies set in Mexico, and the one that's known the world over for being one of the worst movies ever made, and also for having a famous line that got dubbed over with a shout-out to I Love Lucy in the TV version. So hop on your Sea-Doo and get ready to cruise right into the mouth of unintentional hilarity! Features a special guest appearance by Obscurus Lupa!
NOTE: This review is in Spanish with English subtitles. With Udo Kier as a hilarious main villain, Iron Sky is a dark comedy about Nazis who invade earth from the moon, and then wacky hijinks ensue.
It's Halloween, and per the Renegado's made-up tradition, it's time to talk about everyone's favorite lucha libre superhero, El Santo! This time, he tackles Santo vs. Las Mujeres Vampiro, which would later be dubbed into English, retitled Samson vs. The Vampire Women, and mocked mercilessly on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Featuring cameos from all your favorite Agony Booth contributors, and the Blue Demon!
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.
