    I posted this topic in the Kevin Smith forum (if you can call it a forum anyway...)

    but what is your favorite Kevin Smith movie?

    I love them all, three's no such thing as a bad Kevin Smith movie, but my favorite would be a tie between Clerks 2 and Chasing Amy.

    Mallrats, mainly because I live 15 minutes from the mall it was shot at.

    Yup. The Eden Prarie mall. The dirt mall they went to was also in Minnesota, in Monticello. I have friends that went to high school there.

    That's pretty cool, I like Mallrats it's a good movie but like Jersey Girl it was his attempt to sell out in my opinion. There's a lot of bad acting in that movie that really gets to me, it's still good though.

    Well yea, the acting is kinda' sketchy at times but it wasn't a big budget film, like Dogma was. I just love how it's about a day at the mall.

    Well, yea thats kind of true. It's weird to think about though that Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Clerks 2 were all made for less money then Mallrats.

    The worst corny acting that really gets to me every time I watch it is after Brodie gets done giving his metaphor for Renee and his relationship and him TS and Gwen are in the pantie store or whatever. It cuts to that girl behind the counter and she's like "I know exactly how he feels, excuse me" with the worst fake crying ever.

    That drives me nuts every time lol

    other then that, a good movie.

    lol, yea. That must have been some random person who wasn't even an actor. She probably worked in that store.

    Yea, and the only excuse you can give not to blame Kevin Smith on that is that he didn't edit the movie.

    My favorite View Askew flicks are the Clerks movies and Mallrats.  All of the movies are great though, and I love the in jokes in JASBSB.

    Yea, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back is great, In a way it's the introduction to all of his movies for a new generation it was for me anyway, I think I was 10 when I saw it, i'm suprised at how much I instantly loved it considering all the jokes as there are in that movie that you wouldn't get unless you'd seen the others.

    JSBSB really got me into all the other movies, although i did hear about Dogma at the time the other three before it wouldnt have been discovered by me if it wasnt for 'Strike Back, so i have a soft spot for it.

    Yea, after I saw JSBSB I was really into Jay and Bob, without really knowing who Kevin Smith was, I saw Mallrats, and Dogma, and I didn't like Dogma at all...at the time anyway. I remember at first not wanting to see Clerks because it was black and white, and I didn't really understand why at the time. Then, someone in my family bought Jersey Girl out of a bargain bin, and there was that from Mallrats to jersey girl interview with Kevin and Ben.....and there began the obsession.

    Mallrats was also probably my favorite. I also live near the EP mall where the film was shot (I live in Minneapolis), though the EP Center has unfortunately been remodeled completely since Mallrats was filmed, so there are no landmarks to find there.

    That one in Red Bank that they're always shooting DVD extra's and stuff like that in looks really cool. I've never seen the inside of the one in LA on anything .
