I thought this film was going to suck balls. It just smelt like a bad idea to me, and I avoided it at theaters once I heard all the rather negative reception of it. Don't get me wrong, I love the D. I watched the show on HBO whenever I could as a kid, and I got their first album when I was not age appropriate. Did I spell that right? You guys don't give a shit, you're probably not reading this right now. You're like, "Oh, hey. They guy wrote another Stoner's Point of View. Lame ass."
Let's be completely fucking honest for a moment: until the epic shroom scene, this movie did (in fact) suck balls. As I was alone when I watched the film (and rather out of it), I almost fell asleep. Sure, the music was entertaining, but it just wasn't funny. But once it hits that shroom scene the movie completely blew me away. Sasquatch!? Holy shit! JUICY! And the scenes that follow it are awesome, too.
I'll get to all that shit later unless I feel tired.
The story goes like this, J.B. (Jack Black) is too fucking metal for his Christian family. His dad probably asked him to stop listening to the metal and listen to shitty Christian metal bands like underOATH. Lame. He escapes from his house after some guidance from the great Dio and finds his way to Hollywood after about a 10-15 year gap. He then mets K.G. (Kyle Gass), who shreads some Bach (or whatever classical shit that is). After a series of unforunate events, J.B. and K.G. form a band, and after that go after the Pick of Destiny.
Ok, back to the awesome scenes. The retrevial (I know I got that wrong, too) of the Pick of Destiny is awesome. And by awesome I mean dodging lasers and shit to a kick ass song that's not on their soundtrack. What the fuck? Best song in the god damn movie. I could listen to it all damn night. Then Jack Black gets a boner and deactivates the lasers. Yep. With his erect cock.
Then shit gets fucked up and you get some music from The Who and a call-back to the almighty power slide. Then the car chase, and then a musicial battle with the fucking DEVIL. And the devil is Dave Grohl. I think you can put this together in your mind, but here is my breakdown of what I'm trying to explain, even though I'm making a huge fucking run-on sentence because run-on sentences are fucking awesome.
Damn, I forgot what I was going to say. Go rent the Pick of Destiny, hang out with your buds, smoke said buds, and have a good time. The first half will leave you bored but with some of the better music cues from the film, whie the second half is all about non-stop laughes and outrageous stoner humor. Oh, and Dave Grohl is the devil. Or Satan. Doesn't fucking matter. Sue me.
