Later, the two manage to steal the Pick of Destiny due to incompetent security at the rock museum. The music is also a big highlight, as it is both vulgarly original and disgusting vile all at once. All that door to door rocking paid off. It's not laugh-a-minute but that's not what the D intended it to be. I suggest this movie to anyone that wants to sit back and forget all the trouble in the world and have a good laugh. Which is fine, except it means that many of the jokes are very hit or miss. A must see for anyone who calls themselves a tenacious D fan.
Going along with the randomness is the cameos. The movie is hilarious and delivers non-stop laughs. I will say that the R-rating really saved this movie from bombing; The D's humor simply couldn't work without cussing, sex, and drug references. This movie contains no nudity, except for mooning. For the most part, the long-awaited Tenacious D film is a lot better than one would expect. It'll give you a good laugh! Jack Black and Kyle Gass most definitely brought the thunder in this epic tale of friendship, hard rocking and destiny.
Fans of the duo's rock-comedy album and cult classic television show, or the incessantly energetic Jack Black will have jumped at the prospect of an hour and a half of unfiltered Tenacious D madness, and those who generally would not gravitate towards such forms of entertainment will have already uttered a groan, and discounted any possibility of seeing the film. Yes, a lot of them make for smirks and a few broad laughs, but mostly out of the fact that they just do not feel right here. The soundtrack is definitely worth checking out. It is obvious that the film knows its genre very broad comedy , and knows its ideal audience fans of the band and Black, and of course stoners , but almost wants to steer onlookers away by throwing in these atrocious and awful scenes. Jack Black is an amazingly talented comedian and actor and assuming he really wrote and performed the songs in this film he is also a talented musician. Fast, fun and pitch perfect, i urge every fan to see it, not so much the rest though, you won't get it.
Having watched 'School of Rock' not too long ago, perhaps I was expecting something on that level but to me the humour in 'Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny' did not work and I found most of it irritating. The film also had plenty of cameos by the likes of Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, and Meatloaf, but most of them didn't add much to the movie. Despite being about an actual band, the film is a fictitious story set in the 1990s about the band's origins, and their journey to find a belonging to that allows its users to become rock legends. As a sidenote, I do not think I have ever heard the word for male innuendo that starts with the letter 'c' used so frequently like I did here. It is clever at first, but just becomes annoying after a while. Just be sure it's your style.
The car chase was by far my favorite scene. You can't ever criticize it for taking itself seriously. Although some scenes are entirely bizarre and unfitting, they were fun to watch and enjoyable. Watch out for the inside jokes from the first album! Being a fan of Jack Black, I was really looking forward to 'Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny'. I don't go out to movies very often anymore due to the high ticket price and the hassle of getting parking, paying outrageous concession prices, etc. The soundtrack is phenomenal and each song blows you away.
There are a lot of great jokes and I just love the story, at least the first bit. I was tempted to rate it a 6, but since I do think that many would enjoy it enough to justify seeing it in theatres, a 7 seems more appropriate. The film was released on November 22, 2006 and was a. Now, before we get into the fundamentals of how you can watch 'Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny' right now, here are some details about the Red Hour Films comedy flick. The film is in part, a musical. It was created by a dark wizard from a piece of Satan's tooth, as a gift to a blacksmith who saved his life from the great demon.
Portions of The Pick of Destiny were recorded at Dave Grohl's studio. If for nothing other than the music itself, this movie is worth the price of admission. A version sold by retail chain came with an extra disc with exclusive footage. I suggest this to anyone who loves a good comedy and Definitely suggest it to fans of The D or Jack Black. The Australian re-release featured the movie with in a two disc set as well as another set with the film being bundled with. It's hard to pinpoint exactly where the problem lies; in terms of content the film plays upon the same themes and plot points which made Tenacious D so crudely enjoyable in the first place, but the material feels a touch too familiar by this point, coming across as still enjoyable, but merely cute or chuckle worthy, rather than the real belly laughs which should have been evoked.
After you've witnessed it you probably won't be able to remember it hence the Tribute , but your mind forever be changes by its genius. In some instances, everything that is said or done is just hilarious specifically for the fact that it is so ridiculously random. All of the songs are new material and many of them are classic. The Pick of Destiny is the band's first studio release in five years, following up their 2001 self-titled debut. I gave it a chance not expecting much.
