I want all of Walt Flanagan and Scott Mosier's characters (except the one who died in Dogma) to all come into the Quick Stop at once. And then the two Willams meet for the first time, in which case the entire universe blows up.

CREDITS!

Along those same lines, I'd love to see Brodie butt-heads with Blanky, specifically an argument over Archie's sexuality.

Of all the characters played by same actor, having those two collide would be the most fun.

Or create an alternate Askewniverse that would be directed by J.J. Abrams.

I'm sure that if Jason Lee is available at all scheduling wise that he would be in the film...it'd be nice if this film was a bit of a ViewAskewinverse reunion, but I don't know if I want the entire story cluttered by a bunch of cameos as awesome as that would be.

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

A couple of old favorites that appear in a few scenes would be enough to entertain me. We know Brodie runs the comic shop in the area based on JASB and that Jay and Bob love comics. Brodie doesn't even have to interact with his cousin Randal or Dante at the Quick Stop. Just have Jay and Bob drop in to say hi and buy a couple of comics, set up a plot point and reintroduce the audience to Brodie, who'd now also be in his forties and probably just as set in his ways as the others.

Have Mosier as Willam standing outside the Quick Stop doing what he does best: acting strange. Show a TV news report about Alyssa Jones winning some big award for her comics and have Randal turn to Dante and say something like: "another local girl makes good. Didn't you bang her, man? I forget. You always had a gaggle of chicks."

I agree. Clerks II was better for not having a lot of moments like that. I'd rather Kevin focus on telling a great story then trotting out old favorites just for one last go.

Jason Lee has been in every Askewniverse movie thus far but one, so I'd say the odds are better than fair that Kevin will find something great for him to do in the new script. I hope he says yes.

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

The late, great Siskel & Ebert's scathing reviews of Mallrats from eighteen years ago.



I couldn't disagree more with what both of them said about the film, but Roger and Gene had colossal balls and they didn't sugarcoat what they thought about movies whether you and I love those specific films or not. Kudos to those guys.

Already missin' ya, Roger.

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

I watched Mallrats for the first time in what might be 15 years (scary) and I agree with a lot of what Siskel and Ebert say. Unlike Gene, I did find some funny moments here though.

The movie seems like it was written by someone who is really clever, funny and snarky but is still a teenager. Maybe I've gotten too old for this, maybe it's something you can appreciate more when you're a young adult.

Like Clerks II Randal, I have a hard time associating with Brodie, he's too abrasive for me but it just feels like a put-on. At least Clerks II had some self-awareness but I only felt irritation at Brodie. And "TS" just feels inserted into the movie, perhaps to add some Hollywood appeal, but he never engaged me on any level.

It's a fun time capsule though. I suspect a couple of years later it would've been a different film. Checking IMDB, Clueless was also released in 95 and captures some of that same vibe, that sort of the last vestiges of the 80s brightness and look. It's amazing how young Claire Forlani and Shannen Doherty look, even Stan Lee looks like a whole different man. I love Ben Affleck's horrible jacket.

Best of all, whenever I think of Rooker, it's crazy shadow boxing Rooker in his underwear. I didn't realize it was this movie, over the years I think I conflated it with William Fichtner in Go.

Now I did see the theatrical version on Showtime. Looking online it looks like the extended cut is quite extensive. Do you think it's worth a go? Would I maybe find it more favorable? I didn't hate this but it wasn't as good as I had thought.

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

I definitely feel that Kevin's extended cut of the film is better and worth a look. Amongst other things it gives the full and detailed explanation as to why Mr. Svenning (Michael Rooker) detests T.S. so much, which the theatrical cut would have definitely benefitted from.
