Maybe Garak is really a huge Kevin Smith fan and this is merely a piece of performance art.

In that case Garak, I applaud you for on your interpretation of Jay's rage against the movie studios in 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.'

Kevin's shining moment in the Askewniverse films.

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

Today I watched Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I skipped Clerks because I'm going to wait till my bluray of Clerks II arrives in the mail, then I'll watch both back to back.

Dogma is a great film, you can tell it really meant a lot to Smith. My only complaint is I wish Jason Lee was able to play Loki like Smith intended. Nothing against Damon, but I love Lee and Afflecks chemistry in Chasing Amy and would have loved to see it carried over to this film.

As for JASBSB, I like the film, and it never fails to make me laugh. There's just not a whole lot of substance to it though, and it's the only View Askewniverse film I revisit the least.

How have I never heard that Jason Lee was supposed to be Loki before?!?! What did the studio overrule him or something? That would have been cool, but I *really* loved Lee's bitter sarcasm as Azrael.

Another movie he was filming conflicted with Dogma's filming schedule; he had to take the smaller role of Azrael. I believe the other movie was 'Mumford.'

Jason Lee is a shining facet of every Smith film he's been in. Even as Lance Dowds in Clerks 2 he delivers relatively simple and mundane lines with such comic brilliance and timing.

"Randal Graves.

You work here too? Is anybody else from our graduating class back there?"

I'll be in line for Clerks 3. Tell 'em, Steve-Dave!

Same here. I missed most of his Askewniverse films when they were originally in theaters, but I'm seeing Clerks 3 with an audience. It's fun to feed off the great reactions of other fans.

I saw Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks II in theaters. Both films were opening night with fans, so it was pretty neat, but the theaters were still only like half full. I ended up seeing Strikes Back like 2 more times in theaters, each time there were less people there.

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

It's always more fun to watch one of his movies with others who appreciate his humor and characters. When you don't have to explain what "snoogans" means or who Mooby is it definitely makes watching a Smith film go more smoothly.

That said, it can be entertaining to educate a noob to the Askewniverse and watch them go "what? Never mind, I don't want to know."

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

I recall the theatre was full or partially full when I went to see both those flicks with my best friend which I had introduced to Smith's films only a few months before. I believe we went opening weekend, but the Saturday, so second night. Nothing quite like seeing a film with like minded people and the fanbase surrounding you.

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

I watched Clerks at 2 in the morning with a co-worker after having worked a 10 hour shift at a party store as a clerk after our security guy invited us over to check it out. There is no way not to love the movie after that.

Strangely enough Office Space came about in the same manner with my first office job. I've been led by Kevin Smith and Mike Judge through working life...

Elias: "I get chicks left and right."

Randal: "Your chicks ARE your....left and right."
