Tenacious D. Either you love 'em or you hate 'em. If you're a hater, please go click on another review and quit clogging up bandwidth. JB and KG, in my humble opinion, are two of the funniest men in comedy today, and this DVD captures them at their best, both past and present. The Complete Mas.

Tenacious D. Either you love 'em or you hate 'em. If you're a hater, please go click on another review and quit clogging up bandwidth. JB and KG, in my humble opinion, are two of the funniest men in comedy today, and this DVD captures them at their best, both past and present.

The Complete Masterworks is a two-DVD set, packed chock full of goodies. Disc one, labeled "For Fans," contains the duo captured onstage in England. The footage is shot beautifully [considering there really isn't much to shoot], and the crowd is rather insane, singing along with every song [and reciting every bit off the album perfectly, as well]. JB and KG are on the top of their game in this show, as their stage banter is better than I've ever seen it anywhere else. Also on disc one are all six of their original HBO episodes - if you've never seen these, you've been seriously deprived. From the one about Sasquatch to the one about them stalking their only fan, these will have you in stitches.

Disc two, labelled "For Psycho Fans," gets quite a bit raunchier - you might want to put the kids to bed for this one. Included are three of the most disturbingly funny short films I've ever seen, all three of the band's music videos [as well as a cool making-of for "Wonderboy" and "Tribute"], and both in-the-studio and on-the-road documentaries. The coolest thing are probably the TV clips from Crank Yankers, Conan O'Brien, and MADtv, the last of which features Warren of the Vandals on guitar and Dave Grohl on drums. Hot shit.

Once again, the D isn't for everyone, but if you've ever emitted a chuckle at anything Jack Black's ever done, I promise that you'll love this DVD. Well shot, well produced, and loaded with extras, The Complete Masterworks is the ultimate Tenacious D-VD.

"I agree with the guy who posted before. Bush is the modern day Hitler. There is a holocaust going on in Iraq as we speak. The American media keeps us from seeing all the innocent babies and women that are raped and killed by the American soldiers. We dont see how these rotten soldiers are destroying villages and killing innocent civilians for no reason other than ethnic cleansing. Bush hates the arabs and will stop at no cost to eliminate them. If you believe what you watch on the news you are a foolish fool."

that had better have been some sick and twisted joke. cause if it wasnt you are the fool. no matter what people here think of Bush, equating him to Hitler is just fucking moronic.

Tenacious D is to FUNNY what George W Bush was to ELECTED.

There I managed to blast both of these weak institutions in one stupid comparison.

That is an insult to the nearly 10 million Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, Homosexuals and Gypsies murdered at the hand of Hitler. Absolutely disgusting.. I can't think of any other words. To compare Iraq to that? Maybe Stalins rule, or even Saddam's... but this? Ugh...

George Bush is more evil than Adolf Hitler. I dont know how everyone cant see that.

Anonymous (December 18, 2003)

for all you people who hate Bush: would you really want a democrat as president? In other words, would you want a POLITICIAN in office? ALL polititions LIE, CHEAT AND STEAL!!!

Look at it this way, you know when you hear some presidential candidates "next move", whether democrat, indepentant or republican, on the T.V., the radio, newspaper or whatever, you dont get some sinkning feeling in your gut? I mean, shit, "THEIR NEXT MOVE"?!?!

When the hell has running a country become a chess game and, the people, US, are pawns, and the damn pupeteers are planning on how to coax us into believing them, or siding with them just so they can say, when they win:
"Hey Bob, I guess my DICK is bigger than yours now, huh?!"
"It sure looks like that Jack; you won, unfairly and completely unevenly, because we tricked the people into beleiveing us every step of the way!!"
"You're right Bob! Lets get shitfaced and destroy a country-but not in one fell swoop- no, no, over time, by destroying rescources and habitats!"
"OKAY!"
"YAY!"

Look, all i'm saying is that sometimes they make these polticians out to master pupetters making us, their marrionetts, to dance for them just so they can "win".
I know its not like that all the time and i know im being incredibly harsh, its just that...i fucking hate liars!

aww man.....that was so incoherant!
HAHA

Oh well...

"Let's talk about how School of Rock was the best movie of 2003."

I hope thats sarcastic, that show was almost as bad as Shallow Hal.

i was thinking... what would happen if weird al and tenacious d did a song together?

It would negate the goodness of the D.

"On the topic of DVD reviews, Scott should review the aquateen hunger force dvd. Its theme song is so kikass that I would count it as a music related DVD :) "

My cousin was suggesting the same thing. I THINK he's getting it for X-mas, so if there's no review of it by mid-January, I'll be submitting it.

GreenVandal (December 14, 2003)

Well, not destroy, but you know what i mean. heh, im overly dramatic sometimes.

Then schooly D is the man.

Wow, and to think, we only had to destroy a entire country to do it!

just to piss people off, i don't like tenacious d, the aquabats, or reggie and the full effect. i'm a bad bad man, right? just leave me to my japanese bands and i won't ruin any more good humor for you.

Greenvandal - SCHOOLY D (he did the themesong).

GreenVandal (December 14, 2003)

I love the D's album...but i am not a fan of vomit inducing humor, and form what I have heard about this (like the whole assbaby thing) I think I wont enjoy this as much. Nonetheless, im looking forward to it.

On the topic of DVD reviews, Scott should review the aquateen hunger force dvd. Its theme song is so kikass that I would count it as a music related DVD :)

i got it yesterday. there's so much on it that it's great value. i'm not talking crappy features like bios and so on, but full-on kick-arse features. i have watched most of it, and it's all of a high standard, but not the super high standard i was hoping for.

BEWARE: the butt-baby short is so disgusting. in fact, all the shorts are disgusting. me and my mates were pissing ourselves while watching them though.

thanks for the easter eggs andrew13. good find.

Andrew13,
Thanks for the tips on the eastereggs, dood. Me and my bud couldn't find any so we assumed there were none. Sweet.

andrew13 (December 13, 2003)

this dvd will rock your fucking socks off!!!

i bought it a few weeks ago and i love it... if kg and jb were to overthrow our gov't and lead as 2 kings, i don't think anyone out there would object... they certantially have a higher cognative campacity than dubya our current "leader"...

but i have to disagree with the 29 orgasms... i experianced only 25... maybe 26 at the most while watching it...

eastereggs:
on "psycho fans only" disc, highlight the cactuses or the skull... you can watch the 2 osbornes comercials they did and the hilarious tampon comercial... i fell off my couch laughing after that one...

OBEY THE D.

This D-VD fucking rules. It's worth owning for Butt Baby and Rock Star Sperm alone. Not to mention having all the HBO episodes, which peak when KG stabs Lee with his "Love Knife".

The D movie is in the works too http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0365830/

it's got liam lynch (united states of whatever/sifl and olly/and collector of rock star sperm) as the director too so it'll probably be mad mad funny.
