e Grade: B
The D Train was not at all what I was expecting. When I saw Jack Black was starring, I assumed it was going to be a raw comedy. There was comedy but there is also a darker side that showcases the downward spiral of one man’s obsession.
There is one scene in particular that my jaw dropped to the floor. I didn’t see where the movie was going and when it went there, it went! I can honestly say they had my attention at that point.
Jack Black did a great job. His character went through some major development. It is his story and he told it really well.
James Marsden was awesome to look at as usual. The character he played was a perfect fit for him.
All in all, the movie impressed me and made me respect Jack Black just a little bit more. If you’re looking for a dark comedy, look no further than The D Train.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
