  1. We just got back from seeing it, great movie, killer cars, and a bloody good story, its on limited release, as it was a Sundance entrant, but I'll be buying it the day it comes out to add to the collection for sure.

  5. I guess El Gallo Negro has grown up! A friend of mine got to see it at a screening in San Francisco. He said it's pretty good.
  6. I noticed some of Mr Wims striping on the movie's website

    Indeed....very cool movie

    It is

    See above...
  7. Where can I get a copy?
    Also, the movie Mi Vida Loca has nice bombs in it.
  8. Those two were in blood in blood out together. I forget the dudes name but, he was the painter in blood in blood out. Looks good. I'll wait till the dvd comes out.
  9. I think his name is Jesse Borrego. Anymore homeboy trivia?

  12. Dante, its a major part of the story, but nowhere near as bad in the man love as Brokeback.

    I want to see it, but it's conveniently "not showing" in my area. Kinda pissed about that. I gotta drive to freakin' Texas if I want to see it.

    this will kinda give a ideal of how that movie seen was
  17. Some of you are sounding like "homophobes". I say, it looks like its a good movie with a powerful story to tell, made even better by the fact that they show some bad ass bombs.

    I tried to go when it was playing in Chicago two weeks showing, one night only, but wasn't able to leave Detroit on time to make, it doesn't appear to be coming to the Detroit area...

    ..."Blood In Blood Out" is a fantastic movie...I watch it about once-a-month...having seen the trailer for "La Mission", and with both "Paco" & "Cruz" in it, PLUS, traditional, OG lowriders, I'm sure it's gonna be cool...
  19. I was thinking the same thing...I went for the cars & scenery, as I live near San Francisco, and it turned out to be a VERY good movie.

  21. Yep!! Not to mention the fact that, arguably, any press of our little hobby/sub culture is good press.

    I heard through the Grape Vine that Javier Mejia makes a special "Cholo" appearance in this major motion film which is rumored to be WAAAAAAAAAY better than Star Wars. In this "special" scene "Javs" is sitting in a 1955 Buick along with two guys named "Cave man" and "Manilla Ice" , and they're building a model. Can't wait to see the film.

    Same here, I was ready to go see the movie until I found out what the plot was about. Man, don't they use closets anymore.
