Machete film controversy

This is the link from drudgereport. I'm really surprised they linked a Infowars.com article. http://www.infowars.com/racist-film-...axpayer-funds/

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I'm not seeing it. Wouldn't even without the Arizona "controversy".

I didn't see anything racist about it. It's a movie, not a documentary.

You have to keep in mind the context of that movie, it is supposed to be cheesy and over the top. It looks great to me.

like AL P said its cheesy and over the top, if anybody makes this into a race thing, they just want attention. do mexicans have a version of Al Sharpton? thats the kind of person that would say this is racist.

It seemed kinda cheesy to me too, but I thought that was how a lot of Mexican movie trailers I've seen.

I can't believe those idiots are getting stirred up by this. It's a spoof, based on a spoof trailer in the Grindhouse double-feature. You'd think they would've done their homework.

Give me a dollar.

Eric said the other day that they were actually making it. I am not sure. Maybe he was joking. Who knows.

I'd encourage anyone to see the Grindhouse movies if you want to see the context of this movie. This is kind of a parody of 1970s shitty movies, with bad acting and simple violent plots. A lot like blacksploitation films. It's supposed to be really ridiculous.

Yeah, they are. I hope it doesn't all go to shit now that illegal immigration is front and center on the news again.
