The School of Rock (2003)
Rock isn't about getting an A. Sex Pistols never won anything.
In a nutshell : Down and out rock star Dewey Finn (Black) gets fired from his band, and he faces a mountain of debts and depression. Using the identity of his flatmate, he takes a job as a 5th grade substitute teacher at an uptight private school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful effect on his students. He also meets Zack, a 10-year-old guitar prodigy, who could help Dewey win a "battle of the bands" competition, which would solve his financial problems and put him back in the spotlight.(From imdb dot com)
Mama’s dua sen : Semalam kali ketiga aku tonton filem arahan Richard Linklater ni. Kali ni di DVD. Dan aku tak pernah jemu melihat telatah gila Jack Black dan anak2 buahnya dalam perjalanan mereka menyertai Battle of the Bands tu. Pure talent, I’d say, memandangkan bebudak ni mmg bukan pelakon professional (eg, in real life Zack Mooneyham si prodigy guitarist, mula bermain gitar pada umur 3 tahun dan kini mempunyai band sendiri).
Babak paling aku suka : Mr S giving homework to his students. Dan scene masa guitarist No Vacancy cuba ngorat Ms Mullins tu.. haha kat atas stage pun lagi kelakar gila mamat tu…
Mama bagi **** ½ / *****. Rock on !
Well, apa pun, aku takkan encourage sangat anak aku utk menceburi bidang ni. Kalau setakat suka2 takpe. As a hobby. Aku sendiri akan ajar pasal Led Zep, Deep Purple, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc. Kalau nak gitar ke, amp ke, aku akan belikan but not as a way of life. Not as a rocker in the entertainment world. I mean y’know rockers la. Life diorang camne. Sapa nak doakan aku kalau aku dah mati nanti…
I'm a number cruncher, married and a mother to 2 handsome young boys ~ Ikmal & Nabil. Also a self-confessed movie freak, a walking dictionary of useless facts and I just love swapping postcards. I love loud music, black t-shirts, good books and hot caramel macchiato. I hate hypocrisy, the colour pink, rude people, busy-bodies and those with 'holier than thou' attitude. :) I blog 'coz I hate talking. In real life, I'm this quiet person, often immersed in my own virtual world of obsessions, work and whatnot. Comments, suggestions, brickbats (even virtual cupcakes!) are loved, as long as you use the proper channels a.k.a the comments thingy or my e-mail ~ zackzip [at] hotmail [dot] com.
