Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny

Full disclosure, if you're not ready for Jack Black to swear wait on this.

Yet another movie fully worthy of the R rating and also coincidentally from New Line Cinema, Tenacious D a band I never even heard of until well into my teens tried their hand at movies and I thought it was good. It's no masterpiece but it certainly ain't garbage, if you're a fan of movies stewed in ridiculousness and humble production this is a movie for you. Our story follows two rockers KG and Lee who meet up and start to form their own band, before hearing of a mythic legendary guitar pick that will place them at the pinnacle of other rock gods and the journey begins to become the best like no one ever was. I liked the loose story, and the performances of Jack Black and Kyle Gass is what makes you stick around, they just have good personalities and in other actor's hands this movie wouldn't be much. It takes about 30 minutes before the journey for the POD begins but the movie never feels slow, if anything it gets faster and wilder as it goes on like any blistering metal track, culminating in Dave Grohl former drummer of Nirvana and current lead singer for Foo Fighters, playing Satan himself who is challenged to a rock off. It's pretty great and showcases his skills, and is probably one of the best devil's in all of media. It's a strange movie from a distance, but if you give it a watch you may get swept away in it. I know I did and found it to be entertaining and pretty funny. 3.5 stars, 7/10 from me, and I will catch you tomorrow for the ultimate in rock comedy.
