Unless you really can't stand non-comedy movies that aren't serious, this is definitely worth checking out, presuming it's still in theaters. It is so absurd that it's brilliant. Well, maybe not brilliant, but definitely magical, especially if you live over the top action and gore. Think of the Desperado "trilogy" but far more bloody, with a touch of Tarantino's homage-y quirkiness.

Also, DeNiro.

Nice, I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I want to specify that this is a Robert Rodriguez film, but it has Tarantino-like nods to the past (since this is a grindhouse throwback, that makes sense).

I feel like all of RR's adult films (not porn, just not Spy Kids) are winking at QT.

I think this is true.

I haven't seen "Machete" yet (I have a long Netflix queue... and no, she's never said that), but I'm pre-disappointed by something I read: apparently Jessica Alba's semi-nudity is somehow digitized. WTF?! Are you trying to tell me that Mrs. Alba has some kind of grand illusion that she is in movies for her acting talent?! C'mon, sister, you're a babe among babes (although I have to say, sometimes, she kinda looks semi-retarded... and you could land a spaceship on that forehead... but don't mind me, I'm overly critical), but know your place (nekkid on my screen).

I suppose with the above, I can never run for office now.
