    Ahh, that's Kevin Smith in a nutshell, really. Fantastic writer and ideas man, horrible director. Still have a lot of affection for his work, though. :daydreaming:

    Hello jaydoh.
    I've not actually seen much of Smith's work. Might give Clerks a watch later on. Also, just after googling around found out that Zack and Miri Make a Porno was done by Kevin Smith! It definitely had a certain Apatow feel to it, could just be Seth Rogen though...

    Clerks is brilliant, still feels fresh after 17 odd years. Chasing Amy is arguably better, and is also probably his most mature film (although I haven't seen Jersey Girl, so don't quote me on that). None of them are exceptionally directed, and he has made some genuinely bad movies (Cop Out, the mess of misguided fanservice that is Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), but his body of work is largely enjoyable. :holmes:

    Not to forget that Red State is out soon which looks fairly promising.

    The dialogue in clerks is hilarious, just the scenarios and things they talk about. Haven't seen Clerks 2 though but I'd like too

    great points they raised, how many Stormtroopers did die in the splosion of the first death star and didn't other surviving troopers know the design was flawed, why would they willingly work at the New, 2nd death star

    Stormtrooper: Oh hey, yeah I just got a new shift, patrolling the space around coruscant, long hours and all but the nights in the city are mad. Hell the whole planet is a city afterall, where have you been moved to?

    Stormtrooper 2: Oh, just the new death star that's still being built... minimum wage pay, SUPER long hours. It's a shame about the first, those damn rebels must have like had the design plans or something or used 'the force' cos it was damn near indestructible, right

    stormtrooper: Yeah... indestructible, you do know the whole system has one huge major flaw right, that undermines the whole thing, getting asigned to the death star is practically a death sentence... you should get a transfer **** dude

    Stormtrooper 2: Nah I'm sure they worked it up, cemented over the exhaust port or something. I'll be fine

    stormtrooper: I hope so. For your sake

    His dialogue is a joy to behold. :daydreaming:

    As for Star Wars, there shouldn't be any sound in space either. You can find all kinds of logical wrinkles with that most wonderful series (this one is the best: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...EndorHolocaust), but it's generally best to pretend that all of the impossible stuff that happens in the Star Wars galaxy happens in a universe where all of it is possible. :p:

    Also there's this other film set in a restaurant with Ryan Reynolds about the things he does with work colleagues to pass time, it's a bit quirky and alternative like Clerks. I'll find the name soon (really want to watch it)

    It's called 'Waiting...'

    Randomly came across a trailer for Gus Van Sant's new film, it looks terrible :emo:

    It has reminded me that I still need to watch Blue Valentine though...

    It's such a coincidence that I watched Rope yesterday and then discovered that Farley Granger died today. He gave such a subtle performance, but one that was perfectly pitched. RIP Granger.

    Cool film. Kind of like 3 stories mixed in here. But this one really stuck out.

    Spoiler:

    Josh Radnor bumps into some kid in the subway. He kind of gets left behind and so on. A cool kind of friendship builds.


    The entire cast did a great job. You'll like this film if you're into

    For what it is, Battle: Los Angeles is pretty good. It won't be winning any awards, but it kept me well entertained for a couple of hours :yy:

    So, when you think of potential actresses to play Agatha Christie's celebrated lady detective, does this woman pop into your head? :awesome:

    OH GOD NO.

    The whole point of Miss Marple is that she's old- people don't think that she can solve a crime...

    If you take away the age, you take away what makes Miss Marple Miss Marple...
