then he released a TON of shit, and then he did that Waco inspired thing which I thought was thoroughly watchable, I really enjoyed it. I can't imagine that Clerks III would be much cop though, the second wasn't great.
the town where the ice rink in Chasing Amy is. I've been there and everything
I believe at one point he was touted at his generation's Woody Allen. I assume they meant Woody Allen when he was good, not nowadays.
the clerks cartoon did suck balls
someone commissioned a series of the napoleon dynamite cartoon so whats taste matter
making the second episode a flashback filled bottle episode was pretty funny as I remember it.
Last time I saw it I was much younger and much more stoned than I am now though..
his first instinct is to make Clerks III. I guess Cop Out II wasn't an option..
noone could act in it
jay & silent bob was a comic story before it was a film, he's well into his comics, why not have it as a book first?
its about it being influenced by fan feedback as he releases a chapter at a time.
nothing against episodic releases either but to have the story consciously influenced by fans demands?
I like how he says weed hasn't affected his productivity at all and shit but now he spends most of his time in his pants making podcasts and shit instead of making films. And shit.
Even without weed
the only ones who still enjoy Kevin Smith's work
I think making a string of terrible films that were savaged by critics probably hurt his productivity as much as being baked did.
I mean, it's like blaming the critics for not liking White Lies.
is that from Jay & SB onwards he's been both self-indulgent and pandered to the most awful weed smoking pant sitting contingent of his fanbase. The films ended up being filled with injokes that alienate casual viewers and puerile stoner humour at the expense of things like a plot or characters or the well crafted little observations which were sprinkled amongst the toilet jokes in his earlier work.
and now he's possibly asking those same people to help him choose the direction for his next work?
