    I gotta know what strain he smokes, because the podcast on this was great.

    Don't ever take Kevin Smith at his word on anything.

    Especially since he's become a chuckling stoner who cries at the drop of a hat and who's once razor-sharp wit has been dulled like an old butter knife.

    He does cry amazingly easily. I was listening to him interview Kevin Conroy (the voice of Batman) and when he starts weeping during the interview, it becomes really uncomfortable.

    And he discussed Tusk during his Comic-Con panel... I'm sure this will be great. And by great, I mean HitW-able.

    He really needs to stop casting himself in his own movies.

    To be fair to Kevin, he said he wasn't going to make movies anymore because he didn't have any more stories to tell. It seems perfectly reasonable to then become inspired by something.

    Really don't get the recent Kevin hate.

    Where's the cute little Slapshot type movie starring Yimmy, that turned into a 3 month mini-series for some reason?

    Why did he start crying? Because Batman: TAS means a lot to him? Because Batman TAS began in 1992 and Clerks started filming in 1993, so I doubt it had a childhood connect to him.

    Then don't say you're not going to make movies anymore. If there's a chance you might want to tell a story in film (and between Hit Somebody, Clerks III, and Tusk clearly there is), wait until something inspires you. Directors disappear for decades at a time. Don't say you're done when you have two movies and an epic miniseries in pre-production. It's the same as Howard saying he's quitting radio and signing up.

    I think part of it is his crappy movies. Also, his stoner persona has turned off a lot of people, including stoners.

    Never saw Red State, but i heard it wasn't good. Aside from Gigli, I can't think of a movie he's done I'd consider bad. Even Cop Out was funny when the premadonna wasn't fucking up the vibe.

    Aside from Zach and Miri (which I'll admit to kind of liking even if it did feel like him trying to do Apatow), all his fare post Jay and Silent Bob has been truly terrible. And Cop Out wasn't funny.

    It was actually from something Conroy did in the show Justice League Unlimited. You see, Batman stayed with a girl who was dying and stayed there until she did pass. He found his performance moving and starting blubbering, embarrassing everyone.

    The only other movie he's made since J&SB was Clerks II, which was funny.
    Cop out was funny. Not as funny as his other films, but funny.

    I'm not merely talking about being not funny, I'm talking about terrible. Jersey Girl, Clerks II, Cop Out, and Red State were all unfunny and terrible (and yes, I know Red State wasn't supposed to be a comedy).

    You are insane, Clerks II was damn funny. Cop out was "meh" funny.

    Forgot about Jersey Girl, never saw it.

    I give Red State a pass. It was supposed to be an arthouse style film, and they always suck.

    I genuinely despise Clerks II. Cop Out wasn't meh funny. It wasn't funny at all.

    Now I see why we have a divergence of opinion.

    I guess so. Art House is the punk of the film world. If it isn't shit, it doesn't fit the genre. I can't think of a single Art House film that wasn't shit.

    And how do people not find Clerks II funny?

    I think maybe Clerks II would be held in higher regard if it wasn't Clerks II and was just done as it's own thing. Of course, then people would be yelling "It's too much like Clerks!"

    I'd make you a list, but then I remembered you called Cop Out funny.

    By watching it.

    Also, Clerks could possibly be considered art house.

    Nah, it lacks douchy editing and dancing naked wood nymphs. It also has a perceivable plotline.

    EDIT: And overdubbing. Arthouse has to have some sort of overdubbing.

    Okay, so when you say "art house film," you mean "I have no idea what I'm talking about."
