Must Watch: Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind Trailer!
If you haven't already heard about it, then here's your first look at the brand new full length trailer for Michel Gondry's (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) new film - Be Kind Rewind. It's another quirky comedy this time starring two of my favorite on-screen comedians: Jack Black and Mos Def. I've got real strong feeling this could be one of my favorite movies of the year. As they say in the trailer, this looks like its got a lot of "heart and soul," even while being a comedy. You DON'T want to miss this trailer - so kick back, relax, and enjoy!
I'm getting nostalgic even just watching this trailer and remembering that old mom-and-pop VHS store that we used to rent from back in the day. This is a movie that's made for movie lovers from the brilliant mind of one of my own favorite filmmakers. Even the Billy Preston "Nothing From Nothing" song is a perfect fit - damn does this look good!

Interesting match. Totally dig both Black and Def. Can't wait to see how they mesh together in this.

Would have been a funnier concept if it came out 5 years ago when you could still rent VHS tapes.....

Not really, Unlived. The retro aspect of the VHS days is part of the fun 🙂 Those of us who remember those videocassette days will enjoy it even more.

VHS... It was uncomplicated and accessible by anyone. And you could put tape over the tab hole on crappy movie and use the cassettes to record anything on TV 😛

I love the nostalgic tone the previous comments feign in whole-hearted--and ignorant--belief. For example, "Those of us who remember those videocassete days..." Those who don't remember those days are barely old enough to type. That kind of pseudo-coolness misrepresents just how fast-paced recent technological progress has been made. But, then, maybe progress has happened quickly enough so as to not have registered intelligibly in underdeveloped brains.

Amazing huh? Amazing is a pretty strong word. I thought amazing meant amazing, but OK. Ha, looks like Sinner vs. Saint. Just kiddin'.

Michel Gondry's a freakin' genius. Yet, all of his movies end up having a romanti-tragic tone. I wonder when/how that comes into play. Oh please, show us that you can extract some degree of depth from the lovable buffoon known as Jack Black. (sidenote: I always thought it'd be cool if Jack Black & Jack White were pitted in a no holds bar fight against Black Francis, aka Frank Black. And what the hell, as the Bloodhound Gang figured- throw Barry White in there, for good measure.) Gondry is showing us an outsider's appreciation of the vivid, wild animal that we take for granted amidst us: the American Imagination.

I just came back from a screening of this movie. To tell you the truth, I wasn't expecting much from this. I'm not the greatest fan of Jack Black and can never take him seriously. I have to tell you, I was impressed with how funny this was! It exceeded my expectations! I was laughing so hard, I was crying!

15's comment sounds like copy written for a DVD sleeve, but... at least someone enjoyed this one-joke Jack Black-as-Jack Black movie.

does anyone know the name of the song that plays while it shows jack black and mos def making king kong?

Turtlecasserole, shut your elitist-attitude-sligin ass the fuck up you pompous know-all pretentious little prick. He/she was simply saying that the day of the VHS "seems" to be so far in the past that no-one really remembers that's all we used to have anymore, which does make sense considering the blazing speed at which technological advancements are being introduced nowadays. I mean, fuck, give it a few more years, 5 at the max and people will start feeling the same towards DVD. When it comes to TECHNOLOGY in this day and age, nostalgia ain't what it used to be, so to speak.

Btw, I think the whole premise of this movie is ridiculous. These fkrs surely must have something better to do with their time than spending it "reinventing" each and every movie in their store... I could be slightly retarded with ADD and dyslexia and I still wouldn't buy it. Ok, maybe I WOULD buy it then, but any smarter than that and you're gonna have to start druggin me.
