Mask of the Phantasm
Batman / Superman
Batman Beyond Return of the Joker
Just saw Clerks II, and... well... the secret drug that made everyone think it was the best Kevin Smith film yet must've been added to the water supply when I was out of town. (Maybe it's the same chemical that makes people find Spongebob Squarepants to be funny.)
It attempted several things that could've worked in the animated series (like the big dance number) but failed miserably in the context of a live action film, it retreaded practically everything from the original (what will they do on the roof in Clerks III?), and, for God's sake, will someone please threaten to kill everyone Smith knows if he ever uses Jay and Silent Bob again?
Not totally unwatchable, and some freaking hilarious scenes (the "PM" routine with Wanda Sykes was worth the price of admission alone), but overall, it just fell flat.
Since we're listing:
Kevin Smith movies, best to worst:
Dogma: The most re-watchable, and there's some point to the silliness. There's actually a very deep movie hidden in there.
Jersey Girl: Too bad the only people who watched this wanted crotch and fart jokes, and it failed. This proved he actually has some great stories that don't involve J&SB.
Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back: This should've been the topper to the series that it was intended to be. A great slapstick movie, lots of self-parody.
Mallrats: More great slapstick.
Chasing Amy: Not quite Jersey Girl, but the first indications that he had something more in him.
Clerks: A bit dated, a bit dull at times (sometimes for several minutes at a time), but the good outweighs the bad.
Clerks II: In a nutshell, it just tried too damned hard.
Wow, my Kevin Smith Best of list is almost the total opposite.
Watched the Davinci code last night. I wish i had my 2 + hours back.
I went and saw Black Christmas tonight. I can't wait for in 15 years TNT starts doing 24 hours of Black Christmas.
"You'll stab your eye out kid!!"
Watched Dead Man's Chest the other day; my second viewing since seeing it once at the theatre. I found I liked it better than when I saw it last summer. I still don't care for Davy Jones and his crustacean-cursed pirates. I suppose using skeleton pirates again would be like putting two Death Stars in the same trilogy. Oh yeah, there's still a third movie yet...
I also finished Futurama Vol. 4. I think there were only one or two episodes that I'd seen before, so it was like viewing an entirely new season for me.
Went and saw Borat again last night. Just as funny as the first time.
watched pirates 2 last night and watching Mr & Mrs Smith now. would love to see action figures made from this movie. c'mon who wouldn't watch an action figure of Angelina in the Dom outfit.
Watched The Big Lebowski the other day. Funny shi**in movie.
