Joey Lauren Adams deserved an Oscar for that movie. She was breathtaking as Alyssa.

I love the "racist" rant about star wars that ends with "Black Rage!"

Anyone planning on seeing "Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie" this April? The animation is basically typical of the Smod produced stuff they do, but I'm in. It seems to be a kind of origin story for Bluntman and Chronic and it features the return of Cock Knocker and the voice of Eliza Dushku!!
It looks terrible. By which I mean it looks terrible. I absolutely loath the animation style. It looks like something some 14 year old stoner kid drew on the back of a textbook. I've thrown away better looking art than that.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

The animation style of the short-lived 2000 Clerks animated series never impressed me at all but the content was often very well-written and funny and deserving of inclusion in the Askewniverse pantheon. I'm trying to overlook the quality of the animation and just focus on whatever story it has.

Knowing Kevin he probably wanted it to look crappy just to be ironic.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

It came out of the cartoons that Stark originally did for free using clips of the SMODcasts. It is amateur-level because the dude is pretty much an amateur who happened into the job just because Smith doesn't really care how it looks. I imagine he did most of the animation work on his own too, or with a very small team, which is pretty impressive no matter how shoddy the animation is.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

Yeah I'm not bothered by the animation either, even though it's not what I would have preferred they'd go with, I'm interested in the characters and story, and since Smith wrote it it should at the very least be what we've come to expect from his work.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

This thread is convincing me that I need to go back and rewatch all six Askewniverse films in order, but this time in chronological order by story. I'd watch Mallrats first since it takes place a day or so before Clerks in the timeline.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

Ugh. This is terrible news.

All overrated Kevin Smith has really done, apart from terrible movies, is encourage people to be slackers who think they're much more smart than they actually are. A little witty banter and these people think they're awesome. I suppose you can give credit to overrated Kevin Smith for actually encouraging a portion of a generation to become something, but really let's be honest - aspiring to be a failure isn't all that great. So thanks for that, overrated Kevin Smith.

Overrated Kevin Smith, when not purchasing two plane tickets for one person, is now appearing on this comic book show on AMC about grown men with serious issues that are afraid to step out in to the real world but when residing within their own little world, they think they're the cat's ass. It's perfect really.

I'm just thankful overrated Kevin Smith wasn't tapped to do something like a Star Wars or any sort of comic book movie. Overrated Kevin Smith's talents lie in the lowest common denominator range.

I will not be watching overrated Kevin Smith's money grubbing, desperate and sad 3rd attempt of Clerks.

So much to say so little. Why even post in the first place? I don't post in threads about movies I have no interest in, I'd consider that a waste of my time.
