"Tenacious D" trailer

On a slow Monday for movie news, you can always count on Harry Knowles' Ain't It Cool News for a few nuggets.

The first good thing I found there this morning was the first trailer I've seen for Jack Black and Kyle Gass' upcoming "Tenacious D" movie.

I have to admit, Tenacious D tests the limits of my thus-far-fairly unconditional love for Jack Black. I went out and bought the CD, but have listened to it maybe twice. Being someone who often enjoys acting like I'm 8 years old, I enjoy a good fart joke as much as the next guy, but this is basically one fairly good fart joke that never knows when to end.

On the upside, Gass, a good comedic actor in his own right, should finally get some well-deserved attention. He was great as a member of Jason Segel's posse on "Undeclared," and if I'm not mistaken, he also played that stoned-out DJ in the bootleg cut of "Almost Famous."

Anyways, if there's something I've missed about Tenacious D, please let me know, and click here to enjoy the trailer yourself.

Early word on "Futurama"

Also on AICN this morning, some joker calling himself Ben Sinister has apparently read the script for the first four new episodes of "Futurama," which will be hitting Comedy Central in 2008.

According to Mr. Sinister, the script is for a DVD movie, which was probably where the "Futurama" folks were sure they would end up. Now, it's being divided into four episodes.

In a plot that sounds awfully familiar, Planet Express undergoes a hostile takeover, and its new owners involve Bender in their new criminal plot.

Mr. Sinister promises it gets really fun from that starting point, calling the story "delightful and truly epic in scope," and the eternal optimist that's been beaten down deep inside of me has to believe him.

I've always loved "Futurama," but thought it was way too odd to have survived so long on TV. Whenever someone annoys me, I'm always tempted to tell them to bite my shiny metal ass, but I've so far resisted that temptation.

"Speed Racer" from the Wachowskis?

This oddity comes directly from the Where Are They Now? file.

It seems the Wachowski brothers are trying to get back behind the camera to bring us a live-action movie based on the "Speed Racer" cartoon.

Much like the second and third "Matrix" sequels, this one, at least initially, simply makes me say WTF? This sounds like a disaster in the making to me, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Well, after ten years of false starts, it is good to see that a Speed Racer movie might get off the ground. I'm not so worried about good the movie might be (unlike a lot of people, I liked the last two Matrix movies, even if they weren't as good as the original) as I am about the Wachowski brothers actually being able to get behind a camera again. It has been awhile since The Matrix Revolutions.

I think a lot of people liked them, Mercurie, but I had little time for them, especially No. 3 .. I thought it was just ridiculous

Have you ever seen the HBO show of "Tenacious D?" They had only 6 episodes--really 3 (they were 15 minute segments). For the most part, it was pretty funny, especially the episode where they have a stalker/fan named Lee (hence the song on the album). I won't tell you anymore about it, but go find the "Masterworks" DVD and watch them.

As for the trailer, though, I worry about it myself. I saw this before Talladega Nights and I was revved to watch it, and then I saw some...eh...well, hope it's better than the trailer anyway.

Reel Fanatic said...

I haven't seen those, Chris, so I'll have to give them a try ... Something to add to my Netflix queue

After The Matrix Reloaded, Enter the Matrix, The Matrix Revolutions and the Animatrix, I'm dubious of the "creative talent" that the Wachowski brothers have. They struck gold with the first "Matrix", but haven't been pushing themselves since then.

I haven't seen "V for Vendetta", so I can't judge their first real post-Matrix project. As directors, did they go above and beyond? I heard that it was a somewhat average film...

Reel Fanatic said...

I simply loved "V for Vendetta," echuckler, but the source material for that one was brilliant, so it would have been hard to truly screw it up .. I recommend it very highly

thanks for the comment in my blog about "litte miss sunshine" ... maybe it will get some wider distribution, otherwise you'll have to wait for DVD which they hopefully will rush.

if you want to exchange links, let me know ... i'd be happy to add you to my list!

Heh. My inner juvenile delinquent is all excited about the Tenacious D movie - thanks for sharing.

And yes, Gass was the stoned DJ in Almost Famous - the extended dvd set has lots more Gass and I'm glad of it - his timing and mannerisms are perfect for the role.

Kurticus Maximus said...

Bootleg cut of Almost Famous?! Man, I feel left out, I need to go find that.

Reel Fanatic said...

It's actually just the director's cut of the regular movie, Kurticus, but Cameron Crowed called it that, or "Untitled," I think .. you can find it at any video store or on Netflix

William K. Scurry Jr. said...

Dude, the D even meet Sasquatch in this one! I can think of no better cinematic fusion than this! Maybe, Russell and Seagal in "Executive Decision"... but still.

Reel Fanatic said...

You're probably right, Mr. Scurry ... on the advice of another commenter, I have ordered the Tenacious D "Masterworks" series on DVD ... I may soon have to eat some comedic crow, which I'm more than willing to do.
