Last night I got to see an advanced screening of Be Kind Rewind, the new Michel Gondry film starring Jack Black and Mos Def, which comes out next Friday. While it starts a little slow, once it gets going the film is a blast. You should definitely check it out.
In the meantime, you should learn about “Swedeing”. To Swede a movie is to take a popular Hollywood movie and make your own crappy home video version of it using your friends. The Sweded films in Be Kind Rewind are really funny and when I went on YouTube this morning I was surprised to see how many fan-made Sweded films there already are out there, before the film has even been released.
Probably the best one I’ve seen, and the only one so far on the official Be Kind Rewind website, is the following version of the Fellowship of the Ring. After watching this you won’t think that it is so farfetched that the consumers in the film Be Kind Rewind would be so willing to rent these homemade movies. Enjoy!
