Happy Birthday to Jack Black, who turns 48 today.
I love Jack Black. Some people hate Jack Black. I had no idea! I suppose he’s an acquired taste. But I love that first Tenacious D album. I don’t care what anyone says! Great songs on that. 🙂
So here are My Top Ten Jack Black Movies (ranked by how much I like the movie, not performance – I’m aware some of these are tiny roles). Damn – looks like I still need to watch Demolition Man, which most people said I should watch after it wasn’t on my list of My Top Ten Sandra Bullock Movies. Oops.
The Rest That I’ve Seen:
23. The Fan
21. Shallow Hal
20. Shark Tale
18. Tropic Thunder
17. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
15. Orange County
14. Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny
13. The Holiday
12. Be Kind Rewind
11. The Cable Guy
Demolition Man, Neverending Story III, Dead Man Walking, The Jackal, Saving Silverman, Envy, Nacho Libre, Margot At The Wedding, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Year One, Gulliver’s Travels, The Big Year, Sex Tape
I like Jack Black in small doses. He’s great in Bob Roberts. I do like Tenacious D. Although not as much as I used to. I think I like him most when a director makes sure that he’s not just doing a caricature of himself.
Okay, I had to look up Bob Roberts. I don’t know that one! It does look interesting. Black probably does need a director to keep him from being soooo “Jack Black”. Although I think being himself worked for School Of Rock more than other films…
I love Jack Black and I have seen Tenacious D live (what a show that was). I really loved him in Tropic Thunder. Now I want to go and watch that again.
Yay! A Jack Black lover & Tenacious D fan! 🙂 I usually see such negative comments about him…
Nice list. Nacho Libre is wacked. I love it.
Thanks! That’s one I still need to see. I do have the DVD, so I’ll see it at some point. 🙂
