  • School of Rock 2003

    ★★★½ Rewatched 07 Aug, 2014

    This film is so much better than it should be, but that's probably because Richard Linklater is behind it. Jack Black should be annoying but instead he's completely likeable, but I do like his music so this all comes together perfectly. Everything should be wrong but it's all so right.

This isn't a great film, especially when the others are so violent and gorey, but it's quite a 'fun' instalment in the franchise so it's a bit of a guilty pleasure. I absolutely love Bill Nighy in this, too.

It was heavy breathing and scenes of nothing (pretty nothing, but nothing nonetheless) against epic music, or sometimes even just a creepy choir, for 140 minutes straight. I very nearly fell asleep…

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film. I happen to agree with none of the negative reviews and actually really liked it.

    Firstly, I don't know what everybody is going on about the huge emphasis on rape for. There is a focus, yes, but nothing is ever shown, if it even happens at all, as it is all rather implied. From the sounds of it I thought I was going to be witnessing…
