SC Movie Review 19

Be Kind Rewind

What an excellent film. With nothing to do last night we booked tickets to see Be Kind Rewind. It was either that or There Will Be Blood. Although it’s supposed to be very good and is tipped to win a handful of Oscars a serious fill is not what was needed.

The film didn’t start till 9:30 so we had time to kill so did a mini crawl around Clapham and also grabbed a bite to eat.

The first pub we went to (Bed of Roses) interestingly had a regular burlesque night, and the resident DJ was called (I shit you not) Jimmy Bongos.

We then went to the Clapham Manor on the off chance of seeing their resident dog. If I had a preference for a pub to have a dog or a DJ a dog wins every time. Unfortunately no dog so we moved on to another.

We had been to the Rose and Crown once before and saw people enjoying lovely looking pizza so decided to go back. We ordered some wine and asked if we could put it on a card and were told they only took cash. This was a problem if we were to get food as well so we quickly counted up our cash. We had 20 pence spare after ordering the wine, and two pizzas. Fate?


Back to the film, or starting talking about the film.

Jack Black gets accidentally gets magnetised when trying to sabotage a electricity substation. Unknowingly he wipes all of his friend’s video rental shops videos. The shop needs much needed cash to stay open so they decided to recreate the films themselves. Comedy ensues…

The film is by the same guy that made Little Miss Sunshine, and if you see this film you will laugh out loud through most of it. Best bits include the remaking of Ghost Busters, Robocop and Driving Miss Daisy. It also stars Danny Glover, Mos Def, Mia Farrow and Sigourney Weaver.
