You Name It, We Shoot It

Be Kind Rewind
3 stars
If you’re looking for a fun time at the movies this week, I would recommend seeing Michel Gondry’s new film, Be Kind Rewind. The chain of events that set the movie’s plot in motion, is certainly a little ridiculous, but once Jack Black and Mos Def decide to remake a bunch of the movies that Black has erased, hilarity ensues. I thought watching Jack Black and Mos Def recreate all these shortened versions of all these classic films was very funny stuff, and Black and Mos Def have pretty good chemistry together. The last quarter or so of the movie wasn’t really anything that original (especially for a director like Gondry) and certainly would never happen in this day and age. But hey, movies are pure escapism, which is definitely something that this film emphasizes. So if you’re looking for a somewhat simple movie, with a lot of laughs check out Be Kind Rewind.
