Re: Machete VS The Expendables

I liked Expendables more overall, but Machete had a little more fun to it. Tough choice for a movie geek.

I was hoping for a race war, but I guess neither Mexicans nor 45-60 year-old white dudes were energized enough by either film. So I'd say they were both failures.

Re: Machete VS The Expendables

Machete. I had a fun time with both movies, but Machete was almost an entire film of balls-out mayhem, whereas Expendables didn't fuly embrace what it was sold as. Plus, the editing and bad CGI killed some of its luster.

Machete was fun and knew what it was. Expendables was non-stop babbling and idiocy trying to pass as real.

Re: Machete VS The Expendables

I liked them both but Machete was probably the best time I've had in theaters this year for a good cheesy grindhouse/action film. The Expendables was really good too but I felt like it could have been slightly better. Still enjoyed it though.

Re: Machete VS The Expendables

Machete was the better quality film. The Expendables was the film I've dreamed to exist since 1990...and I fucking enjoyed the shit out of it. I can't fucking wait for the fucking sequel. Fuck, I love that movie. It was the better action film (barely cuz of the damn editing..but Crews' gun makes up for that)...so I'm going w/ The Expendables

Re: Machete VS The Expendables

Hey man...I enjoyed it more. If the question was which was the better film...I'd say Machete. It says: which film did you like more? Therefore...Expendables gets my vote.

Re: Machete VS The Expendables

It's the Crank vs. Shoot 'Em Up debate for 2010.

Except that poll wasn't heavily sided towards a single film. Ahem. Machete.
