This Could Wind Up Being the Greatest Movie Ever Made…

There is a movie coming that will make Citizen Kane look like Gigli. It is directed by the same director as Napoleon Dynamite and the plot is about a Priest in training who also works at an orphanage. In order to raise money for the orphanage he dons a mask and becomes a Mexican Lucha Libre wrestler. The best part is that it is loosely based on a true story. Hey Danny, if there has ever been a movie we should go out and see together I think this is the one. Here is a 2 part report on the films production. Nacho Libre 1 Nacho Libre 2.
This movie has me thinking that becoming a masked Luchador would be a great hobby. The masked guys never remove their masks so I can do it with total anonymity. If I ever move to southern Texas, California, or Arizona be sure to look for me on Univision under the name “El Rito De la Noche.”
And while I’m talking about luchadors and priests here is a link to The Church of La Parka. La Parka is a Luchador who’s costume looks like a skeleton (Kind of like the skeleton ninjas from Karate Kid) and is the wrestling world’s most proficient user of a steel chair. If anyone who reads this blog ever runs out of ideas on what to buy me for any given holiday the La Parka merchandise from his official page would be a great gift.

I thought it was "El Ritmo de la Noche." Unless you changed it...I am, after all, fluent in Starbucks Spanish now.

Let's go! Let me know when it opens and I am there! Oh, and we must see Rocky 6 without a doubt!

True Danny, and since they seem to be at about the same stage of production we could possibly do a Saturday doubleheader or something.
As for my lucha name, I've now changed it back. While "El Ritmo Del Noche" is correct Spanish I think I should stick with my original mangle Spanish moniker of "El Ritmo De La Noche.” Thanks dear.
