When Jack Black and his musical compadre Kyle Gass get together, they are better known to their legions of fans as Tenacious D. After a hit TV series, a smash album and sell-out tours, the hard rockin' duo have now got their very own movie:
Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny...

You have to take your hat off to Titan. They take a niche market release (a script book based on a movie that has a very limited audience) and they give it the star treatment - full colour glossy pages packed with pictures. Now why can't they do the same when it comes to some of their other releases (I'm thinking Stargate: SG-1 guide books here)?

The book contains the movie script, a lengthy Q&A with Jack Black and Kyle Gass and tons of stills from the movie. The sad thing is, as well put together as this book is, you know it has "Remainder book store" written all over it. A couple of months from now, when the movie has stopped showing, and it's almost a certainty that you'll be able to pick this up for under a fiver.

What it does, it does well. Whether you'll enjoy it will come down to two very basic things: whether you liked the movie and whether you are a fan of script books. Now you can't tell me that's a bigger market than the Stargate audience now, can you?
