movies: This weekend I watched El Mariachi and Desperado.

Both were quite entertaining. Not to long ago I watched Spy Kids and Spy Kids II. The common theme developing here is writer/director Robert Rodriguez (who, IMHO, is a genius).

El Mariachi and Desparado are both action flicks with a fair amount of gore and plenty of humor (has Rodriguez made a film that does not have ample helpings of humor?). El Mariachi was made for the minescule sum of $7000 and it shows -- the film has a very cheesy feel. Desparado had a real budget and feels like a real, well funded movie.
