Less than the sum of it's parts...

...Which is odd, to say the least.

If you love film, you'll find something to take from this. If it's just simple entertainment you seek, best look elsewhere.

It's a puzzler - read some of the polarising reviews - in a way, it reminded me of Jim Carrey in 'The Cable Guy'; you don't get what you expect, and that can be a shock to some, and a boon to others.

Interestingly, and unexpectedly, I now think more of Jack Black - mayhap he just hasn't had the right vehicle to stretch his talents fully in, yet.

It's never going to make the pantheon, but it does have some things of merit; not least of which is the ability to make you cringe whilst not looking away. The how-can-it-possibly-be-resolved expectation is uncomfortably high.

I liked it; the discomfort, as it dawns on you, is tremendous and it walks its' line well - not subtle, but hey - I imagine the studio execs having a nightmare trying to decide how to market this. Whether it dawns on you, or slaps you in the face, will depend...

Once you've watched it, just think on that for a minute - because that vapid 'Tries to get reunion together' rubbish just doesn't cover it, does it?

Loved the soundtrack - especially the INXS lyricism - and some of the lines were priceless. (Lawnchairs)

I liked it. I feel the ending was rushed a little, but then, how else to cover bases?

DHKR: The D-Train- "Trainwreck"

The D-Train with Jack Black isn't about Tenacious D. Just throwing that out there. Also, it's not a very good comedy, but it is as a dark dramatic role. So, The D-Train should not be viewed as a comedy with Jack Black, but instead a dramatic film that just so happens to star Jack Black and does at least have a couple laughs.

The D-Train itself is about Dan Landsman(Black) trying to net up people from his high- school to build up a high-school reunion along with his committee, where he just so happens to make himself chairman, Mr. Landsman now apparently being a fascist dictator. After Landsman watches a Banana Boat commercial, he notices "The Most Popular Guy from School" Oliver Lawless(James Marsden, who's name couldn't be a more subtle hint of him being a bad-ass if only he was Ford Perfect), who may force the state of Indiana to pull this film from public theatres because of...one scene.

Before I get to that, more plot! Landsman has to lie to his technophobic boss and his wife to go to a business trip as an excuse to meet Lawless and convince him to go out to the reunion which leads to drinking...then to drinking again...then to coke use...then to strip dances...then to "that scene"

After..."that scene"...Landsman returns home, now apparently getting Homo-Traumatic Stress Disorder, turning him into a lying, coke-abusing thespian which seems to be a weird cross between Governor Mike Pence turned abusive and the real life "Hollywood Jack" from Tenacious D's Rize of The Fenix. He's lying more then a plank on a bridge and using more coke than me at a Steak N' Shake on a Friday night.

When the actual reunion takes place, it is where our hero is going all around as quite possibly the most miserable person at the whole party. Landsman takes more coke and then gets told off by Lawless, revealing his..."scene"...at LA before his lies and dis regions soon break him down under such massive weights. Both his family and friends, except his son Zach(Russell Possner), hate him as he looks at the consequence of what his few days have caused. He sank a business to the ground beyond repair, created a bigger gap between him and Zach, and finally brutalized his marriage that, not implied but possible, could a divorce.

So, yes. The D-Train isn't a comedy. It's not funny in the slightest. In fact, it's almost Run All Night levels of depressing. It's nothing that I would like to see again from Black, but I was at least surprised to see him work well enough in a dramatic role.

Final Result: 3 Stars, C-Rank

Insufferable, unfunny, dis-likable Tish.....

Dan Landsman has never been the cool guy, but that's about to change, if he can convince Oliver Lawless, the most popular guy from his high school who's now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion.

A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to LA and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless.

But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life........

Jack Black has had one of the strangest careers in Hollywood for a once A-list star. The School Of Rock, in my opinion, was very mundane, but it rocketed him into the big time, and kudos to him, it opened many doors, and for a while, he was everywhere.

But then he went down the Mike Myers route, and the biggest films he's done in the last ten years are about a talking panda. I always preferred him in a little Independent movie like Bernie, or as a supporting character (his turns in The Cable Guy and High Fidelity were scenes stealing turns).

And let's not forget he played a wannabe 'Rastafarian' in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.

But here, he's really sank to a new low, and his career is now sitting comfortably with Cuba Gooding JRs as having the biggest career nose-dive in history.

Dan is one of the most unlikable, selfish, insufferable characters a 'comedy' has ever seen. The man lies, cheats, steals, and ignores his sons needs in order for him to be popular for once, and you what? It's give me some sadistic pleasure when his world came crashing down around him.

But what makes it worse is that he has such a nice family, and such a comfortable existence, so what if the rest of the alumni don't invite you for a drink, get over it, stop being bitter, and know your priorities in life.

Things only go from bad to worse when Marsden 'enters' into the fray, the writers decide, for some reason, that Dan will do anything, literally anything to be popular and win the day.

And then the film turns almost into a psycho obsessive movie, and Dan almost turns almost a Rupert Pupkin style personality change, because Lawless is doing what Dan should be doing, paying a little attention to his son.

But don't worry, this films message is 'be a nasty person, be abhorrent towards the ones closest to you, because they are like dogs, their love is unconditional.

It's truly one of the most nastiest, vilest, pieces if filth I've ever seen, and I really hope it vanishes without a trace.
