A love letter to Robert Rodriguez

Dear Robert,

Thank you so much for making Machete and saving this woefully disappointing summer of would-be action films.  Thank you for doing what Stallone tried to do, but failed, with The Expendables - making a fun, silly, bloody, amazingly over the top, campy and sexy action movie.  Sure, Machete stalls on occasion between action and "love" scenes, but it always revs back up with a new surprising character or crazy scenario (like the hospital sequence??!!) !  Thank you for casting Steven Seagal, and for writing the line "This, this aint nothin'" [gestures to the giant knife in his torso] "i could kill you so easy right now"... and all the other choice bits! 

Machete is everything the adolescent boy in me wants from a movie, (including Lindsay Lohan, topless).  4 Molos!

Thank you so much Robert,

-Ryan Gifford Molenkamp

PS  I can't wait for the sequels, Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again!
