Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will begin filming this Fall

Kevin Smith has become a polarizing figure in recent years. The prolific director has crafted some excellent comedic films - Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats, Chasing Amy. The list goes on. On the other hand, Smith has missed the mark with several f...

Mallrats 2 is called MallBrats, seriously

Kevin Smith tweeted out earlier a screenshot of his completed first draft for Mallrats 2, in which was contained the movie's new title: MallBrats. Which, one: that's goddamn amazing. In my dreams, it's a prequel about Brodie and T.J. as bab...

Stan Lee teaches cameo school

Fair warning, this is very clearly an ad for Audi and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's pretty priceless. Stan Lee has been rocking the cameo since Marvel movies began and now he's teaching his craft to others. Usually these things aren't s...

Review: Tusk

I have a long-standing history with Kevin Smith, dating back to high school when I first saw the erroneously named "Jersey Trilogy." When Red State came out in 2011, I was intrigued to see what Smith could do with both the horror genre...

First official trailer for Kevin Smith's Tusk

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 bo...

Jay and Silent Bob show you their opening credits

I still haven't seen Red State, but in the past decade Kevin Smith has done almost absolutely nothing for me except for let me watch Rosario Dawson dance sexily and Danny Boyle just trumped him in that category by infinity. So it's with gr...

Trailer: Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie

Kevin Smith may not be able to figure out what the hell he's doing with the Clerks franchise, at least he's got an idea for Jay and Silent Bob. Well to be more precise, Jason Mewes has got the idea (since he's producing it himself). Fair w...

Kevin Smith considers Clerks sequel book rather than film

Kevin Smith has been mulling a Clerks sequel for a bit. At the end of 2012, it seemed like the only missing piece was Jeff Anderson (Randall) signing on. But then the project kept morphing, from a film, to a web series, to a Broadway show, ...

Mallrats and the Eternal Loser Mentality

Kevin Smith's new internet show Spoilers has left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Perhaps it's because I'm a bit of a harsh critic at times, but not every movie deserves to be “revered.” Sometimes a movie is just bad, and as ...

Rethinking Kevin Smith's Jersey Girl

Jersey Girl wasn't a bad movie, it was just an unremarkable one despite some good scenes. It's sweet yet predictable, it's got a heart but not a distinct personality. You could switch out most of the cast with other rom-com actors of the ti...

Five reasons why Zack and Miri Make a Porno isn't so bad

Kevin Smith to Hit Somebody with one movie, not two

Kevin Smith is screenwriting a hockey film called Hit Somebody. Apparently he had once planned to film the movie in two parts, presumably because the story is just that epic. Now Smith has been tweetering, twitterpated, on his Twitter (or w...

New Releases, week of 10/18/2011: "Kevin Smith" edition

I'm fairly certain my distaste for Kevin Smith is largely due to my sheep-like semi-frequent tendencies to drink which ever Kool-Aid the Internet Hate Machine is selling. I loved Clerks, LOVED Mallrats, appreciated (at the very least) Chasi...
