Robert Rodriguez's Word of Wisdom For New Filmmakers

Robert Rodriguez interview at NALIP

Who best to give advice on breaking into Hollywood than Robert Rodriguez who got his start selling his body to research to fund his film El Mariachi. The Sin City, Machete, and Once Upon A Time in Mexico director spoke as the keynote speaker at a recent event for Latino filmmakers and actors, and offered some words of wisdom. 

The National Association of Latino Producers Association held their annual networking event at Universal City's Sheraton Hotel (L.A.) last weekend and invited industry leaders to speak to thousands of aspiring directors, writers, and actors. While technology has made it easier for filmmakers like Rodriguez to create shorts and film, Rodriguez reinforces the idea that "content is king", he told CineMovie's David Gonzales.   He later added that while there are a lack of Latinos in the media, the main goal of a filmmaker is to focus on what's important to them.  The Texas-native also gave some sound advise to attendess by noting that there are no failures in this business.  He suggested you learn from the mistakes of others and yourself to improve your future work.

Robert Rodriguez is currently working on a sequel to Machete starring Danny Trejo.

AUDIO: Zac Efron Not The Mushy Type?

Zac Efron THE LUCKY ONE Interview
Starring in a Nicholas Sparks movie immediately transcends any leading men into heartthrob status but THE LUCKY ONE star Zac Efron doesn't need any help in that department. Zac Efron, however, did have to overcome his cynism when it came to delivering some overly romantic dialogue that men wouldn't be caught dead least in public. Add a comment

Kermit Advocates Green-ray Over Blu-ray


CineMovie sat down with the famous frog from THE MUPPETS to talk about the new release of his new movie on DVD and Blu-ray, and tells us why Green-ray is a much better option than Blu-ray.

Naibe Reynoso sat down with Kermit the Frog at the Disney Studios in Burbank, Ca where the little guy talked up a storm about his life after THE MUPPETS' big success at the box office and their win for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards earlier this year.  First off, Naibe asked the hard hitting question that no one dare ask until now - why does Kermit not wear clothes during his appearances and is he comfortable in his skin?  THE MUPPETS star answered with a resounding "yes," he is comfortable but he understands why the interviewees chose not to show up naked.

Miss Piggy's long-time love also mentioned the cool features on both the DVD and Blu-ray that he assured would keep the family busy and entertained. Kermit admitted he was a little green (pun intended) when it came to knowing the difference between DVD and Blu-ray, but he does know it involves a laser.  His only complaint was that in the case of THE MUPPETS, a Green-ray would've been more suitable. 

THE MUPPETS Spoof The Hunger Games

So what is next for Kermit?  After touring the world in such places as Mexico and Argentina, Kermit is read to settle down in the swamp and get out of Hollywood to de-stress, but unfortunately that didn't involve Miss Piggy.  When asked if he and his MUPPETS co-star were ready to have children, he didn't know if legally an amphibian and mammal were allowed to procreate, but being the good reporter that Naibe is she gave him the option of adopting.  Of course, Kermit said he'd have to consult the experts on the subject - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

THE MUPPETS is now on DVD, Blu-ray, and the special MUPPETS WOCKA WOCKA Value Pack edition.
