Tusk

This movie is so fucking weird and fucked up. Of course, it’s a horror movie….but it’s also a comedy…and it’s also a mindfuck. Tusk is like a new genre of movie – Mindfuck Fu. The first Mindfuck is not so much the subject matter – it’s fucked up to be sure, but the real mindfuck […]

Red State

I finally watched a good horror movie! One that wasn’t on SyFy! Aren’t you proud of me? As big of a Kevin Smith fan as I am, I can’t believe that it took me so long to get around to watching it. That leaves me with just Jersey Girl (not likely) and Cop Out (which […]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

As soon as I heard the opening riff of “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver,” I was in love… Kevin Smith has always had a way with picking the music for his films. I’d argue that the soundtrack for Clerks is one of the top soundtracks ever, alongside The Crow, Singles and Pulp Fiction. I may be […]

Clerks II

They always say that “You can’t go home again” – but Kevin Smith sure has made a career out of it, hasn’t he? He’s turned the characters from Clerks into a nice cottage industry. The guys from Clerks have their own animated series and comic book and then there’s Jay and Silent Bob. The general […]

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Yeah, I’m slow, I just finally saw it this weekend. Had to wait for the annoying young’uns to clear out of the theater…man, I’m old. Anyway, in the words of the immortal Choad, I too, laughed so hard there was blood on the seat when I left. So far, the film has grossed about $30 […]

Dogma

Do you wanna know the best part of the film? The best part was found at the very end of the credits…”Jay and Silent Bob will return in Clerks 2: Hardly Clerkin’.” Now that is something to get excited about! Dogma was exactly what I expected. Not better, not worse but exactly, on the nose […]

Mallrats

Of Kevin Smith’s ‘Jersey Trilogy,’ Mallrats is the last one that I saw. I had been told that it was stupid, that it was just not Clerks. True – most of Mallrats is pretty stupid and it isn’t Clerks, but it was goddamn funny. Way funnier than Clerks in a lot of places. I was […]

Clerks

Stupid day jobs. Who hasn’t had their share of stupid day jobs? Clerks is the tale of a day in the life of two guys with really stupid day jobs. Dante (apt name – his job is hell) works in a Stop & Rob and Randall works in a video store. These are the two […]

Chasing Amy

When I first saw Fat Man and Little Boy (Siskel and Ebert to the unenlightened) review this film, I was annoyed at the subject matter. I was like, “Yeah right. A hardcore lesbian would change for a guy…sure…” I unfortunately waited until it came out on video to see it. Mistake. Fatty and 4 eyes […]
