Be Kind Rewind
You name it, we shoot it.
A man whose brain becomes magnetized unintentionally destroys every tape in his friend's video store. In order to satisfy the store's most loyal renter, an aging woman with signs of dementia, the two men set out to remake the lost films.
A near perfect film not only for the movie lover in you, but for the wannabe filmmaker in all of us.
Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind has a clear potential, but, unfortunately, its potential is wasted throughout the film. It is carried by its interesting and malleable concept, which is incredibly misused as the film starts developing. Michel Gondry managed to input some interesting ideas, which, unfortunately, are underexploited and underdeveloped, such as Jerry's (Jack Black) magnetizing powers. I have to admit that when it started I thought it'd be a great movie, but, as it developed, I could see something was missing and, in my opinion, it was notorious that Michel Gondry did not know how to create an effective balance between its genres.
Be Kind Rewind works as a wonderful comedy, but as soon as the film shows its…
This is the third time I've seen it since its release in 2008 -- easily one of the most pure intentioned films ever made, it holds up much better than most 21st century comedies. Honesty can't say enough good things about it, which makes it a real shame just how underappreciated it is. It's got a lot of heart and really reminds me of why I love film in the first place. Great movie.
Y'all know the only thing I like more than rappers acting is movies about making movies.
One time my dad caught some of this on tv and legit thought Jack Black was in a Ghostbusters movie.
This film as a whole is incredibly lopsided yet manages to be entirely lovable and enjoyable.
The final screening scenes in Be Kind Rewind, made me cry, for some reason.
Be kound rewound
i fell asleep at the end someone let me know if they did in fact be kind and rewind please i need to know
This movie was really adorable and pretty nostalgic for me. Watching Jerry and Mike recreate famous films for Mr. Fletcher's video store reminded me of how I would make up my own movies/TV shows when I was younger. Running around, coming up with lines on the spot, looking everywhere for props, "designing" the set, making sure my camera was charged and that I had enough room on the tape that I was using. I remember it being so much fun, and this brought me back to those memories.
This movie shines light on how important and special it is to belong to a community. You can't always succeed on your own. Sometimes you need a big helping hand to get yourself to where you want to be. And I love that about this movie.
I HAVE SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS MOVIE!!!! It never fails to make me cry. It's all about community and friendship, but in a delightfully bizarre and fun way. Two best friends bring their town together by recreating hit movies and renting them out. It has a ton of heart and is a great movie to watch if you love movies and the way they can bring people together! ❤︎
really adorable movie
Cute, but the effekt wares off quite fast. Also doesn't this movie kinda leave you hanging?
Alas, it didn't really stand for a second viewing a half decade later. Pity.
This film is really lame but Jack Black is brilliant
A lot of heart here. Manages,in a very real sense, to capture community and the power of documentary filmmaking.
Jack Black's performance is among his Jack Blackiest. Mos Def is excellent.
It's not all bad, but I was expecting more from Gondry. Jack Black is usually either funny or just annoying, and here he's a little bit of both. His chemistry with Mos Def is pretty on point though, and I did laugh a couple of times.
I want to watch a fun movie.
I love arthouse films, but sometimes I just want to have fun, so…
