I wasn’t expecting much out of Bernie. I’d lost my taste for Jack Black right around the time I got into the upper levels of high school. But I wasn’t just pleasantly surprised, Bernie gave me a revelatory performance by Black, a deliciously twisted and dark comedic film filled with grotesque small-town denizens who wouldn’t seem out of place in a Southern Gothic short story from Faulkner ... read more

My 30 Favorite Movies of All Time (30 movies items)

"This is one of most recent movies I have seen and with time it may crack the top 10. I put this movie in my "Top 10 Most Underrated Movies" because everyone I talk to has never heard of it. The movie is based on a true story so bizarre it's hard to believe. It may be best to go into this movie without knowing anything but to put it simply it is about a man being pushed to his breaking point. But don't let that deter you from seeing it, this is one of the best comedies I have seen in awhile. Jack"

Top 10 Most Underrated Movies (10 movies items)

" As of right now, this is Jack Black's best performance to date. Based on a true story, this tells of a funeral mortician and director who befriends a newly wealthy widowed woman played by Shirley MacLaine. He ends up killing her after being consumed by constantly having to put up with her abuse. When the police find her body in a freezer, Bernie confesses and he is put on trial. But since everyone in town loves Bernie and hated the woman no one wants to convict him. Jack Black gives his all t"

"First Viewing Viewed: March 30th Plot: In small-town Texas, the local mortician strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow, though when he kills her, he goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she's alive. Richard Linklater is officially the most unpredictable filmmaker in recent memory, as he's directed films like the masterful comedy School of Rock, the documentary Fast Food Nation, and the rotoscoped animation film A Scanner Darkly. Bernie further solidifies Linklater's versat"

"1.3.2014 Jack Black tekee ihan kivaa työtä pääroolissa omia maneereitaan vähäeleisemmällä tyylillä käyttäen, mutta itse miehen esittämä nimikkohenkilö tuntuu kummallisesti jäävän melkein taustalle elokuvassa. Väliin heitettyjä haastatteluja tuntuu olevan enemmän kuin itse tarinaa ja se ei nyt oikein toimi ratkaisuna, kun hahmosta kertoessa heidän selittelynsä jäävät sellaiselle "Joo no se oli sellainen kiva tyyppi. Vähän homohtava"-tyyliselle jaarittelulle, vaikka jot"

"Kudos to Jack Black for taking this role and seeing to it that he does fair job to it. Whole movie is a charming tale of Barnie which gets a twist in the end but overall I liked it. Had a good time. I loved the accent with which town people were speaking... it made the whole movie more charming. Townsperson: Well, I know the Bible says Jesus turned water into wine, but it didn't say liquor store wine. It had to have been non-alcoholic wine, because it didn't have time to ferment"

"Richard Linklater's "Bernie" is hands down just a great true crime story that's not particularly dark. Not all these stories are soaked in blood and fog. Jack Black makes probably his strongest performance to date and utilizes for both his comic chops and dramatic skills. Linklater making the film a partial documentary as well was quite a smart choice; very much giving the viewer as much of the experience as possible. "

"26.11.2013 "Well, Bernie was so nice, so accommodating, so willing to keep from hurting other people's feelings, he just couldn't tell anybody to piss off." This was a good, but a bit boring movie. Jack Black probably gives his best performance so far here. Usually he just plays himself, but here he was an actual character. I hope we see more roles like this from him because he was good at it. Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey were also both very good. But that was really all this movi"
