5 Reasons Why The Tenacious D “Pick Of Destiny” Sequel Is A Bad Idea

1. Time Kills Deals

Simply put, it has been 12 years since the last film. Most successful sequels tend to pop up within a few years or at-least within the same decade as the original. Almost a decade and half since the 1st “The Pick Of Destiny,” fans and film goers will be far too disconnected with the lore and namesake to really fall head over heals for the film. It’s a different time and a very different America from when the “D” first hit the scene, and all signs point to apathy.

Not to mention, this film will contend with the highly anticipated Tom Hardy led and Sony-held marvel anti-hero flick, “Venom,” “Halloween,” and Jungle Book adaptation “Mowgli” starring A-listers like Benedict Cumberbatch (“Doctor Strange”) and Christian Bale (“Batman Begins”).

Can Jack Black’s dimming star power bring bodies to the seats? I mean, with all the buzz around a more relevant “D” was not enough to make it a hit back in 2006, which spells doom for 2018.

I know you are probably saying, “Yeah right, look at Facebook and Google news. It’s plastered with excitement about the film. I’m gonna go see it! You’re wrong.”

My response would be to wait and see what “Sunday’s news” looks like come October… Forgotten. Not to mention, I am sure hardcore fans will be in attendance but, unless the “D” taps the mainstream, the “D” are dead in the water. Hardcore fans alone do not a blockbuster break.

On the other hand, Netflix or another streaming media sites may provide the perfect scenario to serve old fans and the newer “[insert streaming service] and Chill” enthusiasts this musical “Tribute.”

At the end of the day, I can postulate that the “The Pick of Destiny” will be a major flop… but YOU, the movie goers, are the ones who make or break the film. Your fandom can sway the “Destiny” of Tenacious D’s upcoming film.

About The Author

Pooya

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
