In Venice Beach, naive Midwesterner JB bonds with local slacker KG and they form the rock band Tenacious D. Setting out to become the world's greatest band is no easy feat, so they set out to steal what could be the answer to their prayers -- a magical guitar pick housed in a rock-and-roll museum some 300 miles away.
In my years and years of fighting training I passed some months under sensory depravation training. First they blindfolded me for weeks and I learned to depend on the sound and the air pressure around me, then they deprived me of hearing by making me fight with headphones on, and I chose to listen to hard rock and metal when I was fighting, and I depended on good positioning and eyesight. Finally they combined those trainings and I was fighting blind and deaf using my positioning, and reflexes and sensing the difference in air movement around me and the pounding of the enemies’ feet on the ground. But what I really loved from that training was the music. Rock is the music for people like us ;)
There was this movie once called Tenacious D: the pick of destiny and it, literally, rocks. It’s a movie released in 2006 staring Jack Black and Kyle Gass and tells the story of a talented but oppressed rock artist named JB that “sailed” to the land of fallen angels, where the sea meats the sand, Hollywood. There he found a very talented and bald guitarist named KG and they decided to start a band together, to pay their rend mainly but for the fame too. The movie has very very addictive music, if you like hard rock, the special effects are totally cool for 2006 and the acting… well it’s Jack Black, this guy rules whatever he does. The story is interesting and with lots and lots of laughter, I was never bored in the duration of this movie, like some other recent movies, and it kept me interested to see the finale, and the finale was hilarious :D
Also there is a scene after the ending titles that is funny and I discovered it by accident, the ending tittles songs where so cool that I left them playing till the scene started playing.
I totally recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good old rock and roll musical movie and to anyone who loves Jack Black.
Go watch it ASAP.
