Gettin’ the Led out

I crapped on School of Rock when I saw the first trailer for it, but lately I’ve heard one postive review after another. Apparently it could have been the crappy film everyone’s seen a thousand times before, but Linklater pulled it out and let Jack Black run with it.

I just got back from seeing it, and although there were one or two cheesy parts that felt like every 80s movie ending I’d ever seen, the rest of the film was pure Tenacious D rocking with Jack Black (sadly, Kyle Gass was nowhere to be found). Basically it was like all of JB’s parts from High Fidelity mixed in with a bunch of kids and a cheesy plot, but somehow it all worked and was quite entertaining.
