Yes, I did watch Desperado last night.
In hi-def, with the surround sound turned up.
No, smartass, not just because the movie has Selma Hayek in it.
Every time I watch this flick I can't help but be astounded at how utterly brilliant the soundtrack is.
Here's Tito & Tarantula doing Back to the house that love built:
If you've watched the movie (and really, how could you not have?) you know that Tito Larriva played Tavo, Cheech Marin's partner in crime - and like Marin, meets a violent end at the hands and guns of El Mariachi.
I'm not a big Robert Rodriguez fan, but I love this bloody and violent movie.
And yeah, OK, maybe just a little of that is because of Selma Hayek.
And yes, Eric, Tito & Tarantula is the band in From Dusk Till Dawn, who perform while Selma Hayek strips - then they all turn to vampires and eat the patrons.
