|10.04.09||DVD|| I'm sick. It sucks. With Brutal Legend just a few weeks away (Fuck you, Jack, for getting to play it early), I thought watching this would make me more excited to play the damn thing (as if that were possible).|
I still really love this movie. The kids are great, Black's probably at his best, Linklater's hand is light but confident, and the music's great. Step Off! Step Off! Step Off!
|04.19.08||DVD||no notes really... watched it because I'm sick and I like it.|
|11.29.04||DVD||So yeah, Jack Black's on overdrive in this and it's a movie about prep school kids who learn lessons in life through rock and roll, but the cold hard truth is that this movie makes me feel good. It excites me about movies and music. It makes me want to screen capture the rock-web on the chalk board and check out all the bands on there. Jack Black is really a type A Movie Star: you either like him or don't because he always plays himself. Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Arnold Schwarzeneggar; they all fit this same bill. I really don't mind Black being Black in every movie, just like John Wayne fans didn't mind him being John Wayne in every movie. The biggest thing i like about this movie is its worship of rock and roll as a force beyond just music. It's like a spirit that can possess you and make you speak in tongues. I wish i was a lot more musical.|
