My weekend was pretty uneventful. Therefore I had the time to go to the cinema and watch Be Kind Rewind.
I liked it, although I did expect a little more from it. The sweded movies are fun and – in the times of the ever growing popularity of youtube, where an estimated 95% videos are remakes of other youtube videos – it wonderfully shows a new art form that emerged in the past years.
I also really, really loved the movie about Fats [I hope that was the guy’s name, I’m not sure right now) – it was beautiful.
And now come the buts… Michel Gondry could have shown more of the sweded movies (btw, you can watch them and a sweded trailer here), they had me under my seat, laughing. Jack Black could have toned it down a bit, he was overacting as usual, but this time it just didn’t fit the movie and the mood.
I do think it’s worth a watch, but you could have made a lot more of it.
