Tusk

Posted by knobbygirl

This movie is so fucking weird and fucked up. Of course, it's a horror movie....but it's also a comedy...and it's also a mindfuck. Tusk is like a new genre of movie - Mindfuck Fu.

The first Mindfuck is not so much the subject matter - it's fucked up to be sure, but the real mindfuck is that it's not sexual. Of course, we wanted the motivation to be sexual - but nope. The motivation was guilt.

Clerks II

Posted by knobbygirl

They always say that "You can't go home again" - but Kevin Smith sure has made a career out of it, hasn't he? He's turned the characters from Clerks into a nice cottage industry. The guys from Clerks have their own animated series and comic book and then there's Jay and Silent Bob. The general public has made it quite clear that they're just not interested in films outside of the Askewniverse - shit, I haven't seen Jersey Girl either. I can't fault Smith for going with what he knows in making Clerks II.

Do you wanna know the best part of the film? The best part was found at the very end of the credits..."Jay and Silent Bob will return in Clerks 2: Hardly Clerkin'." Now that is something to get excited about!

Clerks

Posted by knobbygirl

Stupid day jobs. Who hasn't had their share of stupid day jobs? Clerks is the tale of a day in the life of two guys with really stupid day jobs. Dante (apt name - his job is hell) works in a Stop & Rob and Randall works in a video store. These are the two places where you are most likely to see stupid people. (Having done my time in a Blockbuster, believe me, I know.)

Mallrats

Posted by knobbygirl

Of Kevin Smith's 'Jersey Trilogy,' Mallrats is the last one that I saw. I had been told that it was stupid, that it was just not Clerks. True - most of Mallrats is pretty stupid and it isn't Clerks, but it was goddamn funny. Way funnier than Clerks in a lot of places. I was expecting something like a Pauly Shore movie but it was more like a Mike Meyers movie (is that good or bad?)

Chasing Amy

Posted by knobbygirl

When I first saw Fat Man and Little Boy (Siskel and Ebert to the unenlightened) review this film, I was annoyed at the subject matter. I was like, "Yeah right. A hardcore lesbian would change for a guy...sure..." I unfortunately waited until it came out on video to see it. Mistake. Fatty and 4 eyes definitely ruined this film for me. It was much deeper than their little minds could grasp.

This is the first film I saw Ben Affleck in. Can you say yummy? He looks a lot better with a goatee. I was heartbroken when I heard that he was hanging out with that dork, Matt Damon. Oh well.
