I knew Mars Attacks!, but none of the others. In fact, I have only seen a couple of the others.
 
2013-08-15 12:36:55 PM
I didn't know they made a Neverending Story 3

Well...it is the Neverending story.

So now there's 3 of them going on at once? When will it ever...oh, nevermind.

Didn't know he was the pilot in Waterworld, and I've seen it several times.

/and never saw never ending story 3
//and never saw the fan
/// did catch him on Demolition Man which was on AMC last Saturday and went...hey, was that jack black?
 
2013-08-15 01:46:16 PM
Wasn't he also in the Cable Guy?
 
2013-08-15 02:07:16 PM
You just know that if it was a black guy like Spike Lee that made this it would be all cool and Jesse Jackson would be giving him high-fives, but when a guy with a nice Jewish name like Russel Simmons makes it then everyone is all "burn the white man."

This is another example of the systematic oppression I endure every day.

Yeah, I'm weird like that.

List is also missing 'Cradle Will Rock'. Unless that movie is not as "under the radar" as I have always convinced myself it was. Amazing movie, still features one of the best final shots of a movie I have ever seen.

That I did know, though he's pretty hard to miss in that movie. It also has Gustavo Fring before he assumed his chicken magnate cover identity.

I liked him in White Stripes

Or that ep of X-Files where the kid can control electricity.  He runs out of his video game store crying and his buddy reins lighting down on him.  Good stuff.

His act wears on me rather quickly.  Between basically being himself in everything I've seen him in, and the ridiculous adulation for Tenacious D, I kind of don't care.  I'm not saying his work is devoid of entertainment value, or "stop liking ...", but he seems overrated to me.

"Then why are you posting in this thread, you asshole?"

Because I'd like to know if I'm in a terribly small minority, can be convinced I'm wrong, or if I'm saying what many people secretly feel about Jack, but keep it to themselves for fear of peer-ridicule.
 
2013-08-15 02:20:27 PM
But did you know he was in the biggest failure in Brodway history?

you win for finding the most obscure thing Jack Black has ever done, the Harriet Tubman Sex Tape.
 
2013-08-15 02:21:30 PM
I did not know he was in any of those movies. Then again, I've never seen any of those movies (at least not that I remember), so I guess that's to be expected.

George Bush doesn't care about Jack Black?

Mars Attacks! is a blast, go out and rent it. The other ones, I don't know too much about.

He played a lamp in Casablanca.

They left out Biodome?  That had the full D.
 
2013-08-15 02:51:53 PM
I guess the author had a deadline to meet and is a D fan.

"Hmm... let me go look at Jack Black's IMDB and pull a random list of movies where he played a bit part..."

I like Jack in the big year. A film about bird watching. Sounds werid but it works.

My favorite Jack Black movie has got to be "Be Kind Rewind"

For those of you who have not seen it..  Go rent it tonight.  You'll laugh your ass off.

"I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" has got to be the most retarded title for a movie, ever.

Dude. No, just plain no. NOOOOOOOO....Huge fan of JB, but that was such an odd movie that never made me laugh once. OK, the camo that matched the gate made me laugh, but that was it.

I love the movie, but it is definitely the type that is kinda meh on the first viewing, but keeps getting better each time you re-watch it.

great, great movie.

also, I remember seeing High Fidelity on VHS, where Jack Black mentions Richard Thompson, "an obscure British guitarist", but when i watched it on DVD, that line was missing.
anyone else, or i am crazy?

He's an overrated, annoying, whiny-voiced douchebag. Nobody I know finds him funny or entertaining and he single-handedly damned near ruined Jackson's King Kong.

I don't care for him.

List fails without 'The Misadventures of Ezekiel Balls'
 
2013-08-15 03:50:18 PM
Did it mention "The Jackal"
 
2013-08-15 03:52:23 PM
He was a guy in a surveillance van in Enemy of the State.
