"They know what they want and you know what to give them!"

In the Bedroom, Toronto, ON, 27-Aug-07

"No excuses!
Don't refuse this!"

Things I saw online today:

The trailer for Be Kind, Rewind!

Jay told me about this film a couple of days ago, which was the first I'd ever heard of it. How is that possible? I finally searched for information on the movie today and am thrilled to report that he wasn't teasing!

Sure, I'm a little wary of Jack Black at times (relying a lot on his schtick, you know), but I enjoy him more often than not. Besides I'm more than happy to watch Mos Def in anything, really. The high, super-high concept is reminiscent of the fantastic Good Bye, Lenin!, what with the pacifying of a beloved older woman with labour-intensive fakery, yet I suppose that's neither here nor there so forget I mentioned it.

Honestly, I don't care if it's a stolen idea; Michel Gondry has a track record of making things fun*, so I trust him. Anyway, as Jay pointed out, there's a sweetness to the film that is quite appealing. I'm ready for it!

It's nice to be excited about a Coming Soon to a Theater Near You, isn't it?

TRACK LISTING: Cylob, "Rewind!"

*With the possible exception of Human Nature? I've never seen it, so I can't say for certain.
