Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny

Friday, November 17th, 2006

tenacious-d-in-the-pick-of-destiny-2.jpg

Eric Moro of IGN reviews Tenacious D. Read on:

For those unfamiliar with the “Greatest Band on Earth” (as they’ve dubbed themselves), Tenacious D boasts two origin stories… both equally unique. The real world duo got their start as members of Tim Robbins’ ensemble theatre troupe, the Actor’s Gang. It was there that JB (Jack Black) and KG (Kyle Gass) discovered their mutual love for rock ‘n’ roll. After developing a slew of fan favorite songs revolving around fame, Kielbasa, Dio, friends, idols, drugs, demons and love, the band found itself thrust into the limelight and opening for such well-known acts as Beck, Tool and Pearl Jam. Their 2001 album, Tenacious D, went platinum; they followed this effort up with Tenacious D The Complete Masterworks, a DVD that included their live concert at Brixton Academy plus music videos directed by Spike Jonze and Liam Lynch, as well as Lynch’s documentary On the Road with Tenacious D.

Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny serves as the band’s theatrical origin — one in which a number of liberties have been taken. Instead of meeting in the Actor’s Gang, the film depicts a meeting at Venice Beach where JB, escaping the repressive regime that was his childhood home, is “wowed” by KG’s guitar playing skills. After what can be considered a rocky start, the two become roommates and assume a master/student relationship. KG proceeds to instruct JB in the ways of rock ‘n’ roll — with lessons on playing for weed, performing in front of a drunk and cantankerous bar crowd, and landing the ultimate power slide.

Upon completing his training, JB joins with KG to form Tenacious D. But when their first performance is met with less than a stellar response, the two determine that they need to write a masterpiece — a song that will make them the Greatest Band on Earth. Of course, it doesn’t take long for them to realize that this is much harder than they ever imagined. But luck is on their side and soon they discover the Pick of Destiny — a guitar pick forged from the devil’s tooth and said to give all in its possession the ultimate musical skills. It resides in the Rock and Roll History Museum — an impenetrable fortress — and thus begins The D’s greatest adventure: one that pits them against police officers, security guards and Satan himself.

In a surreal sort of way, The Pick of Destiny is reminiscent of Tommy — what with all the singing and A-list cameo appearances. But the film opts for a more comedic approach then its 1975 predecessor. In fact, it’s this reporter’s opinion that Black is at his funniest when he’s singing — particularly when the lyrics are off the cuff. (For an example, see the actor’s performance of “Encarnación” in Nacho Libre.) And this movie truly gives Black a platform to flex that particular muscle.

harsh_times_poster_small.jpg

Synopsis:
From the creator of TRAINING DAY comes HARSH TIMES, a gritty look at friendship, loyalty and ambition set on the extremely rough streets of south central Los Angeles.

Jim Davis (Christian Bale) is an ex-Army Ranger recently discharged from the military, yet still haunted by nightmares of his former occupation. While seeking a position with the LAPD that will allow him to marry his Mexican girlfriend and bring her to the United States, Jim kills time chilling with his best friend, Mike (Freddy Rodriguez).

Mike is feeling the heat from his longtime girlfriend, Sylvia (Eva Longoria): either get a job or get out. But the love of a beautiful woman can’t compare to the bonds of friendship, and Jim and Mike are soon cruising the streets of South Central, slipping back into a deceitful life of drugs, violence and petty crime, just like when they were kids.

Cast: Christian Bale, Freddy Rodríguez, Tammy Trull, Adriana Millan, Eva Longoria; Directed by: David Ayer

Let’s Go To Prison

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

letsgotoprisonblog.jpg

Synopsis:
Felon John Lyshitski (Dax Shepard) has figured out the best way to get revenge on the now-dead judge who sent him to jail: watch the official’s obnoxious son, Nelson Biederman IV (Will Arnett), survive the clink.

John strikes gold when Nelson is wrongly convicted of a crime and sent to the pen he used to call home. He gleefully gets sent back to become Nelson’s cellmate and to ensure that his new buddy gets the “full treatment.” Let the games begin.

Lesson #1: the joint’s a scary place, so you better make friends fast. Right away, Nelson offends the wrong cons and is sold–by John–to Barry (Chi McBride) for prison snuggling. But just as revenge starts tasting sweet, Nelson becomes Big Man in the Big House and turns the tables on John… changing the rules of his insane game.

Cast: Dax Shepard, Will Arnett, Chi McBride, Dylan Baker, Steve Dahl, David Koechner, Michael Shannon; Directed by: Bob Odenkirk

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

santaclause3imageblog.jpg

Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause is good clean fun, but not condescending. Read on:

The Santa Clause franchise began, in 1994, as the ultimate collision of workaholic-Dad-snapped-into-line-by-fantastical-intervention cinema (see The Family Man, Liar Liar, Click, et al) and high concept piffle (ordinary guy becomes… Santa Claus). The movies have since served as one of the two twin pillars, alongside the Toy Story films, in star Tim Allen’s otherwise scant big screen career. Eight years passed between the original and its sequel, but the $172 million worldwide gross of The Santa Clause 2 (almost on par with its forebear) cemented plans for a trilogy.

While the films have taken a turn for even more family-friendly terrain (the original was rated PG, the latter two flicks both G), the result — somewhat paradoxically, when stacked up against many other live action family franchises — is not a movie that feels tame or uncertain, but one emboldened by the clear purpose and vision of its mission. Yes, there are still, dishearteningly, reindeer flatulence jokes and a sound mix full of cartoon cacophonies, but for the most part The Escape Clause succeeds as a credible adventure flick for little tykes.

Michael Lembeck returns as director from The Santa Clause 2, and guides the movie with a sure hand. He’s aided by a solid screenplay by Ed Decter and John Strauss — the original writers of There’s Something About Mary, who’ve generally refocused their efforts on younger audiences, going on to pen scripts for The Wild and The Lizzie McGuire Movie, among others — and an engagingly colorful villainous performance by Martin Short as the jealous Jack Frost.

After having become Santa in the first movie, Scott Calvin (Allen) has tried to juggle the demands of the job with his personal life. The Escape Clause finds Santa taking on new challenges as his extended family continues to grow. At the risk of giving away its secret location, Scott invites his in-laws, Sylvia and Bud Newman (Ann-Margret and Alan Arkin, a rich pair) to the North Pole to share in the holiday festivities and be near their daughter, Carol (Elizabeth Mitchell), as she prepares for the eagerly anticipated birth of Baby Claus. The problem, of course, is that Carol’s parents don’t know about Scott’s secret identity (they just think he’s a north-of-the-border toymaker), so he disguises the North Pole as Canada, instructing all his elves to cover up their pointy ears and go about appending, “ehh?” to the end of every other sentence.

Further complicating matters are Scott’s own blended brood — ex-wife Laura (Wendy Crewson), her new husband Neil (Judge Reinhold), their daughter Lucy (a very effective Liliana Mumy) and Scott’s son Charlie (Eric Lloyd) — who beg on for a trip of their own, and have to be entertained as well as keep the secret from the Newmans.

The main complication, though, is Jack Frost (Short), an icy-browed outcast on the Council of Legendary Figures, a group which includes the Easter Bunny, Father Time, Mother Nature, Cupid, et al. Jack wants his own holiday, and when rebuffed by the council he hatches a mischievous scheme to wreck Scott’s holiday and make him unwittingly invoke the titular “escape clause,” thus freeing the path for Jack to become the new Santa Claus.
