Kevin Smith is the worst kind of fanboy...
No, Kevin Smith is the best
kind of fanboy: the kind who grew up, took his enthusiasm and did things
with it. He's made films, made a career, has a life.
Some people don't think his films are good. Those are just opinions, and properly the concern of those expressing them rather than Smith's concern. After all, he could have wasted his life hanging out on the Internet and trashing filmmakers in the Talkbacks over at AICN. That's
"the worst kind of fanboy."
