Robert Rodriguez’s traditional El Mariachi triogy can be popping out in a brand new set from Arrow Video (with one small catch).

Desperado, sequel, Robert Rodriguez

Like lots of you studying this, I’ve a comfortable spot for Robert Rodriguez’s Mexico trilogy. The three movies centred round a guitar-playing mariachi (first performed by Carlos Gallardo, then by Antonio Banderas) who turns into a killer after a case of mistaken identification. The three movies put Rodriguez on the map as some of the thrilling administrators of his era, and the story of how he turned a $7000 motion film made for Mexican residence video right into a worldwide smash is famous (as he documented himself within the traditional e book “Rebel Without a Crew”).

Now, Rodriguez’s free trilogy, which consists of El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico, are coming to Arrow Video in a particular features-laden field set which incorporates commentaries, new interviews, deleted scenes and extra. However, the catch is that of the three movies, solely Desperado is getting a 4K disc.

Why?

Well, right here’s the factor – the weather don’t actually exist to place the opposite movies on 4K disc. El Mariachi was shot on 16mm movie for $7K, so a 1080p HD switch is about pretty much as good because it will get for that film. Once Upon a Time in Mexico, regardless of having the largest price range, was an early film shot on HD digital, which means the utmost decision is 1080p. It must bear a significant restoration (or revisionist switch) to look good on this format (that is the dilemma possible dealing with Sony and Danny Boyle with 28 Days Later). Desperado was the one one shot on 35mm movie, so it has the most effective components and can possible look wonderful in 4K. 

Whatever the case, the set is loaded with extras, as revealed by our buddies over at Arrow Video. Check em’ out:
