When I first decided to form a list of top movie concerts, I thought having a wealth of film knowledge would help me out. Sitting down to draft the list however, I found myself at a loss for ideas. I couldn't see the forest for the trees, and plots sat jumbled together in my head.

Jack Black
Jack Black dined on a grasshopper enchilada while filming his new movie, Nacho Libre. The 36 year-old (star of King Kong and Shark Tale) tried the exotic insect dish in Oaxaca, Mexico, where he is filming the Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) movie.
