i haven't read anything recently about kevin smith until about a few weeks ago when i saw clerks on blu-ray. i haven't seen cop out and i don't think i plan to

I'd say Dogma was Smith's last great film, with Zack + Miri, and Clerks II being the best of the bunch succeeding it.

From a technical standpoint, Chasing Amy may have been his masterwork. He really found the perfect blend of his crude humor, and emotions with that one. The film hits your heart strings deeper than Mallrats, or Clerks ever dared to; which can also be partially attributed to his growth as a director at that point. I don't think Smith would have ever gotten the budget to make a flashy film like Dogma, had he not struck gold with the hilarious and heartfelt Chasing Amy first.

Clerks is the one I watch most though. Randal Graves is one of my favorite film characters of all time, and Jay + Silent Bob work great when presented in their most rudimentary nature. The film's so raw, it almost reminds me of a slacker comedy Eraserhead or something. Which makes sense since Kevin talks about being very into Lynch at the time. The original cut where Dante gets shot at the end leaves the film ending on a much different tone. I love the use of title cards too.

I hated Cop Out. I don't think anybody really liked it all-too much. There's a reason he went back to writing his own shit immediately after.

If you haven't seen it yet, and want to check out an insanely cool Kevin Smith related film, I highly recommend Bryan Johnson's Vulgar.


 


It's an extremely dark comedy starring Brian O'Halloran (Clerks) as Will, a down-on-his-luck party clown who... well, I don't want to ruin anything for you. Like From Dusk Till Dawn, or The Crying Game... the less you know, the better. Just hunt it down somehow, it's a masterpiece. Kevin makes a sweet beardless cameo too.

But yeah... I'm down with Kevin Smith 4 realziez.

I just watched this on Netflix IW and really quite enjoyed it. Apparently this is the third in a series of five movies (Alley Cat Rock) by the same director. Take the action and music of a Seijun Suzuki movie and replace the male gang with females you pretty much have this movie. Not sure why this is the only one Nextflix has available to watch or even rent. I'd like to see the others.

Is that Patrick Keiller's film?

Dead & Buried is one of the better Shadow Of Innsmouth translations.

Volver (9/10)

This is increasingly becoming my favourite Almodovar film, maybe because it's his purest - like a summation of pretty much everything he'd done up to that point. Eventually he just had to make his ode to all things female, and Volver is surely it. A beautiful film, both in terms of how it looks and what it seems to be saying.

That's a film i definitely need to see again. I remember finding bits of it genuinely creepy when I first saw it. It has a strange atmosphere to it. My main memory is that it involved lots of fog.

Dead & Buried is awesome, though I think I prefer Dagon when it comes to the story. But whatever. Stuart Gordon, Brian Yuzna, Dan Obannon -- all these guys handle Lovecraft so well. Call it in the air.

How was Screamers? I was reading about that in one of my magazines. Looked cool enough.

Public Enemies (4/10)

I'm a big Michael Mann fan but this didn't work for me at all. The main problem being Johnny Depp who may be a decent actor but is never gonna convince anyone as John Dillinger. Christian Bale is about the best thing in the entire movie, besides the inevitable handful of great shoot out sequences.
