That's not my opinion, that's a fact, jack (black).


"**** all you haters.˙ I am going on record as declaring that The Departed is the best movie in the history of all time.

That's not my opinion, that's a fact, jack.


You forgot to put the "nicholson" after your 'that's a fact, jack'  ;)

Massawyrm at AICN doesn't think too much of it.

But Quint likes it.

In other news, the release date has been moved out to Wednesday the 22nd.

It was as I expected.  Some good jokes, some bad jokes, great music, and vulgar as hell.  :)

Got the new CD tonight... haven't had a chance to listen to it in depth, but the quick skim I did sounds pretty good.

My buddies and I saw it yesterday (along with Casino Royale, which was great BTW).

I thought it was the coolest damned thing I've seen in ages. I loved the cameo appearances, which I won't spoil here. I had been hoping to see a few of the past songs on the big screen in addition--especially considering there were spots tailor-made for "Tribute", "Lee", and a few others--but I can see how they wanted to go for all-new material and not mix in the old stuff.

Looking forward to seeing it again, too.

From BoxOfficeMojo.com:

Quote
Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny delivered Jack Black's flabbiest opening yet, bagging a discordant estimated $3.1 million at 1,919 venues for $5.2 million in five days. Rock 'n' roll movies frequently flop, and Tenacious D was comparable to Airheads.

Sad ... however, it's only the first weekend and I think this is the kind of cult film that will not depend on opening gross. I know I'll go see it at least one more time.

I saw it Thanksgiving night, and until the previews started it was only my wife and me in the theater.  Three more people came in during the previews, but that was it.  I'm not surprised to hear of its lack of success.
