Nacho Libre DVD Review

Jack Black teams up with the director of Napoleon Dynamite for the new comedy, Nacho Libre. Find out if this story of a masked monk is a Luche Libre gem or a complete flop.

Nacho Libre - Man of the Cloth

Brother Ignacio is a Luche Libre-loving monk at a children's orphanage in Mexico. Ignacio is in charge of cooking but, due to a shortage of funds, Ignacio is forced to cook the same dull meal every day and it's starting to depress everyone. Being the kind-hearted guy that he is, Ignacio (who has nicknamed himself Nacho) sets his sights on a winning a Luche Libre wrestling match so he can use his winnings to buy better food for all the kids!

Nacho Libre - Money-Making Monk

Nacho quickly recruits an agile street urchin to be his wrestling partner. The two begin training together and are soon enrolled in their first match - which goes horribly. But, despite their loss, this hapless duo is paid a fee for showing up and is asked to come back the following night. And so begins Nacho's Luche Libre career! The money he is raking in allows him to buy supplies to make salads and other tasty treats but he must keep his wrestling persona to himself or face being kicked out of the church.

Nacho Libre - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Some of the funniest parts in Nacho Libre don't involve any dialogue at all - just facial expressions. Keep your eyes on Nacho's wrestling partner, Esqueleto, who's awkward, goofy smile will crack you up every time. Also, if you're a fan of Jack Black's crazy antics, Nacho Libre has some good examples of them. Every time he breaks into song, every time he dons those turquoise, stretchy pants, you'll be glad he was the one cast in this flick. There are some scenes that kind of lag and are more awkward than funny, but the pure silliness of the movie makes up for the odd floundering scene.

Nacho Libre - DVD Features

Nacho Libre is one of the funniest movies of the year and now, with the DVD, you can check out some pretty great features like commentary from Jack Black, director Jared Hess and writer Mike White. There are also deleted scenes, behind the scenes featurettes and a photo gallery! A must-have for all Jack Black fans.

Nacho Libre - Bottom Line

There are plenty of fart jokes, funny faces and [kwlink]crazy costumes[/kwlink] to keep you glued to Nacho Libre. If plain-old slapstick humor isn't something you find that funny, then you might want to pass this movie up. But if you love Jack Black, his ridiculous songs and can't wait to see him parade around in a Luche Libre costume, then run out and buy your tickets today - it'll be worth it.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)
