I'm pretty surprised by the vote; Chasing Amy and Mallrats (along with Clerks) are his finest and most remarkable works - Mallrats seems a kind of teen movie satire in may ways, and is undeniably 'movie junk food'

rigged I tells ya - all the asses he kicked in the talkbacks must still be a little sore

You're right: we're used to voting blindly. I forgot our motto: "Don't think, just nod!"

Well, I did the right thing and voted Jersey Girl. The best part of that movie was the Sweeney Todd bit at the end, if only the rest of the movie had been that funny. I wanted Smith to make a mature film with a bit of an edge, instead we got a really unlikeable yuppie Ben Affleck.

Of course, I am in the minority because Dogma is my favorite. Of course I haven't watched it in a couple of years, so maybe it would totally annoy me now. But I thought it was funny and sharp, although Linda Fiorentino is definitely not, yikes.

Chasing Amy, I know I should like--but I made the mistake of watching it for the first time with my mom. I even made a point of asking my more experienced friends "So is there anything about Chasing Amy I wouldn't want to see with my mom?" "Oh no, it's a great movie, Mallrats is the one you don't watch with your parents." Now, I have very cool parents who rarely blink an eye--but the discussion on going down, you just don't want to watch that sitting next to your mom. Of course after the fact, everyone (including the friend who had told me it was all right) asked me what I was thinking. :roll: So anyway, that awkward experience just colors the whole film for me as an uncomfortable one to watch. Plus it's about a guy being a total dick to his girlfriend, not exactly cheery stuff.

i found the will smith bashing at the start really funny , especially when you see the end of the flick & he shows up .

also the whole "i want your sex , does it sound like hes singing that about a guy" bit

overall i think this movie got way more bashing when it was released than it deserved , its not a great movie , but it shows smith can make a movie without using characters from the last one .

Why is there no 'All of the Above' in the poll?

Also, doosh wrote the most boring ass Green Arrow comic of all time, which is a hell of an accomplishment; given that Green Arrow is already the lamest shit around.

Not necessarily a Smith film. View Askew does put out other films...though only Smith's get any real publicity.

Actually, the early pages of the thread are just you, Burl, BB and Wonka bashing ALL of his movies, with Whedon and I defending some of them. Nothing there to show that the poll isn't screwed up.

I just have trouble believing that people could enjoy J&SB, which is everything you guys hate about Smith, more than Mallrats or Chasing Amy. My opinion.

I like a little rough play...

No one has directly, but I can't fathom why J&SB doesn't have 1,000 votes in the poll. To me it's such a mishmash abortion of a movie. And that's coming from someone who likes Smith.

Yeah, most people who like Smith list "Amy" as in their top 2 or 3 Smith movies, and I can't imagine anyone who likes Smith would list J&SB or Jersey Girl (which I didn't hate) as being better than Amy. So my only answers as to how the poll got to where it is, are:

1) Some people didn't read the poll and thought they were picking their favorite KS film; or

2) Folks who hate KS movies in general picked "Amy" to spite those of us who do like KS... :wink:

alright, here's a sorta rational arguement for you:
I understand that Jay and Silent Bob was never made with the intention of being high class cinema (actually, how that studly fuck got a studio to agree to release that shit is beyond me).

Chasing Amy, on the udder hand, was his first attempt at a "serious" flick, and he failed miserably.

hitherto and therefore, even though i hated J&SB, i LOATH Chasing Amy, ergo and whatnot, i voted for it in the poll.

satisfied?

I disagree about him failing miserably, but if one felt that he did fail miserably then that logic makes more sense than anything I can come up with.

See, I laughed my ass off the first time I saw J&SB, just because it's the most expensive in-joke I've ever seen. Upon repeat viewings, it's not nearly as funny and has a less-than-paper-thin plot, but I still WAY prefer it to the mishmash that was Jersey Girl.

And I still say Chasing Amy is a beautiful little film.

For my part, given that I quite dislike Smith, I have absolutely no intention of ever seeing J&SB, as it seems to embody everything that makes Smith a poser.

THE CANON WITH HOSTS DEVIN FARACI AND AMY NICHOLSON
CLERKS

On their way back from Park City, Devin & Amy detour to New Jersey’s Quick Stop convenience store to discuss the Sundance surprise of 1994: Kevin Smith’s Clerks. Is this the View Askewniverse's only good film? Did Clerks prove that anyone could make a movie--and is that a good thing? Can Devin put aside his personal beef with Kevin Smith? Plus, they predict which flicks from this year’s Sundance could be potential canon fodder. Tune in for the battle -- and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!

Kevin Smith Suffers Massive Heart Attack

After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!

I kinda like Mallrats too! It was a natural progression from Clerks.

For me he went off the rails after Mallrats...total dogshit from that point on, and his self-deprecating non stop jibber jabbering is insufferable.
