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

The jail cell scene is also my favourite scene in the film. Everything in the film basically leads up to this crucial emotional moment in the movie, and everyone nails their lines perfectly. I wasn't the only one in the theatre that was tearing up during that scene and it still gets to me. The final scenes of the film are great as well. It's gonna be a hard film for Smith to top, but from the excitement in his voice when he talks about what he has planned...I have a feeling that he just might pull this off.

This never, ever fails to make me misty-eyed. Perfection.

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

I love all of Smith's View Askewniverse films, but for me it all comes down to Dante and Randal. As much as I love his other films, Clerks is the one that I keep coming back to. I enjoyed Clerks II as well, but it wasn't what I was expecting; on a reviewing though I enjoyed it more, now I just need to add it to my collection.

I absolutely cannot wait for Clerks III, be interesting to see what they're up to in there forties now.

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

My guess: aside from Dante having the responsibilities of a little kid and a wife? Basically the same as always. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

And Dante does own the Quickstop now. Maybe they'll come full circle and he'll be stressed out by two slacker clerks that work for him now, with Dante trying to get them in line and Randal egging them on.

Elias works next door at RST Video....maybe he ends up at the Quick Stop just like Randal did in the nineties after spending time seeing all his friends having fun next door and not in the video store.

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

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!!

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

I don't know if I'll get the opportunity to see it in any kind of public, theater setting, but yeah I do plan on watching the film. I don't care how cheesy the animation is, Jay and Silent Bob are still Jay and Silent Bob and anything new from the warped world of the Askewniverse is on my viewing list.

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

^ That's pretty much how I feel about it as well. I think Kevin stated he plans on promoting it in a similar fashion to how he did "Red State" with a tour, etc. It'll have a limited release before being On Demand and then Blu-Ray hopefully.

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

I didn't see Red State until it hit home video, but in all frankness it didn't take long at all for the film to arrive on disc. The movie didn't make much and came and went like lightning, so there were probably only a few months between the theatrical run and the DVD and BluRay releases.

Yeah, I think there were only two or three....it was really short and I believe Smith planned it that way IIRC.

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

I'd love to see the Jay Silent Bob movie when it comes out on DVD. Does it have any connection to the Clerks cartoon? The same art style? Is it only written by Kevin Smith?

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

The trailer shows a Leonardo owned Bank the two visit. It's a different animation style. It is indeed written by Kevin, it's based on the Bluntman and Chronic mini-series he did a few years ago that was the companion piece to "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back".

Cop Out is the only film he's ever directed and released that he didn't write.

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

Since we don't really have much Clerks III news to go on right now, this seems like it's stemming into an "All things Smith" thread:

I just got done watching Chasing Amy for the umpteenth time. As I said upthread it's my favorite outside of Clerks, and it's probably his best written and directed film. I also feel this is one of, if not the best roles that Affleck has had in his career. It's also one of the few movies that I know by heart and yet when the end comes I wish so hard that Holden would say that one thing to get Alyssa to stay, it's just a heartbreaking movie for me to watch.
