Jack Black

What your favorite star Jack Black does during a Pandemic?

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Hey so, Coronavirus marches in London? Well, in Hollywood, you get a different reaction. Okay, there is no segue there, except that the Pandemic makes people do weird things. Take beloved comedian Jack Black He looks like Rip Van Winkle lately. But? Not anymore, ps. Watch!  From Screenmancer We stole this from the Upbraidy Bunch, who stole it first. That would be the Ferrell gang over at Funny Or Die. But is there something to b...


by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent What could be more perfect than SCHOOL OF ROCK’s Jack Black, a frontman himself, giving you insider info on THIS IS SPINAL TAP for #AFIMOVIECLUB?  The Jackster has been known to break into song even at film-related events, such as with Shirley MacLaine once when they did a press junket for Richard Linklater’s film, BERNIE.  Yes, there’s a diverting example included here.       Meanwhi...

Jumanji, The Next Level: Low level fare

Jumanji, The Next Level: Low level fare Jumanji was first released in 1995, at a time when video games were the new fad. Since then, the franchise has had three forays into filmdom. The latest one is titled The Next Level, but, ironically, it is a slide down to a new low. Amateurish and even puerile, this movie is probably aimed at pre-teens, but since pre-teenagers cannot be expected to perform such adult acts as are depicted, and the story has already established several grown-ups, and only...

The House with a Clock in Its Walls, Review: Gothic and scary, with a funny-bone Everybody loves a good mystery. Well, almost everybody. If there is magic in it and prodigious children, they love it even more. The House with a Clock in Its Walls is a magical story about warlocks and witches, children and childish innocence. It has, at its centre, a house that enjoys a position of its own. Hidden inside its walls somewhere is a clock that keeps ticking, and it is no ordinary clock. In fact, it...

Meanwhile last night was the LA premiere of DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT from Amazon Studios, a curious biopic starring Joaquin Phoenix that opens July 13. Jack Black and glasses, Joaquin Phoenix and cigarette during, not after, the afterparty This adapted screen story...

Jumanji-Welcome to the Jungle, Review: You only live thrice

Jumanji-Welcome to the Jungle, Review: You only live thrice If you happen to get your hands on a board-game called Jumanji, you and all within range will be transported to a virtual jungle, where virtually all imaginable forms of carnivorous animals will vie with each other to gobble you up. But even if they do, do not worry, you will still live, to die another day, by falling off a cliff, perhaps. Now that you have used up two of your allotted three lives (nine are for cats only), you better...

LA Film Fest: Moving at the Speed of Media & BERNIE & LEAVE IT ON THE FLOOR

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Already the Los Angeles Film Festival, now 17 years old, is acting like a teenager. First, last night they opened BERNIE, the much-anticipated Jack Black-Shirley MacLaine starrer by Richard Linklater so fast that anybody who made it from the parking structure in time felt lucky. PS, There's a dead guy in it. Then, they are calling it a "Festival Village," like some Olympians may wander in confused, drawn in by universally fam...

Kung Fu Panda 2: Jack Black And Lucy Liu Do Sydney 3D Premiere, by Eva Rinaldi - 13th June 2011

   Kung Fu Panda Sydney Red Carpet Premiere: Eva Rinaldi Photography Hollywood hit Sydney - AussieWood tonight, thanks to Jack Black and Lucy Liu, who star in Kung Fu Panda 2. Black was super animated and friendly, while Liu was quicker paced with the news media and fans. As you may have figured, it's their voices, not their faces or bodies that you will see in the flick, but both are likely to share more of themselves via a directors cut DVD of the film in the coming mon...

Lessons From The Kung Fu Panda

As the Kung Fu Panda’s entourage struck the city for its Sydney Film Festival Australian premiere last Monday night, I waited in watchful expectation among the media pack on the red carpet, reciting all the Confucius wisdom I could remember, to mentally prepare myself  to ask ‘The Hard Questions’.  The Paramount Pictures PR whispered to me quietly as if a secret aside “this is the Dreamworks CEO, do you have a question?”  And there heading towards me, first in the Kung Fu Panda PR a...
