Regardless of our opinions on Kevin Smith here at Flixist, we always seem to find ourselves talking about him. It’s because he’s managed to turn his few successes into a huge marketing juggernaut with the “Askewniverse,” podcasts, comic book stores, and TV shows based on those comic book stores. But I don’t find the same fervor for his projects that I once had as he’s been on a string of bad decisions.
The latest one is Tusk, a film starring Justin Long as a podcaster who interviews people with weird stories. After going to a remote location in Canada, he’s taken hostage by a maniac who wants to slowly turn him into a walrus. The premise sounds pretty neat, but I’m waiting for the other foot to drop. Where’s the badness hiding? Tusk releases in theaters September 19th.
