i'm really excited to see this, and i'm only hearing good things about it

What the

Every single review I've heard has been that it's one of the worst movies ever made.

Also, it's Kevin Smith, which means there's no possible way it's good to begin with, so

oh hey what a shock, the critics who Smith has spent the past two years shitting all over are in turn shitting all over him.

i was spekaing about regular people who i have talked to who have seen it.

I'm not talking about critics. I'm talking about people I know who have seen early screenings.

I mean, some of them have put it in the "so bad it's good" column, but no one has actually said it was good, and there's no goddamn way it is.

The other two films of this "trilogy" sound even worse though.


Moose Jaws! Oh boy!

Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 02:42:33 PM
In regards to Moose Jaws, Smith said, “That’s just Jaws with a moose. And it’s awesome. There’s a scene where the moose’s eat, I’m halfway through the script, there’s a scene where a moose is eating like a nine year old kid right out of the lake and stuff.”


Wow, so hilarious and awesome, Kevin Smith.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 02:51:04 PM
okay, i get it, you don't like Smith and you think comedy-horror films should really take themselves more seriously.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 02:56:39 PM
I like plenty of comedy horror films. Murder Party and 100 Bloody Acres are decent ones I've seen lately.


A shitty movie is a shitty movie. Kevin Smith is not a competent director.

Also, he stole the plot of Tusk from a story someone posted on the internet.

man i just realized i haven't seen a kevin smith film since jay and silent bob, which the first time i saw it in the theater stoned I hated it. The second time it was alright but i wouldn't consciously watch it again. however, clerk-mallrats-chasing amy- dogma, some ok some great satires

Hey jer, have you seen Red state? i noticed it was on netflix, and might watch it tonight. i didn't even realize it was a kevin smith film

Also, he stole the plot of Tusk from a story someone posted on the internet.

i wrote a short story before 13th floor and matrix came out that was nearly identical to 13th floor (but mine was better). Sometimes people just have similar ideas
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 03:12:27 PM
Well, no, that's different. This is something he straight up stole and made a podcast about.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: AaronTheCabe on September 25, 2014, 03:15:50 PM
well im not aware but if he did and blatantly went about mentioning it. hes no better than chia labeef

This is something he straight up stole and made a podcast about.

He saw an ad on craigslist an extrapolated an entire story from it which is a pretty big departure from the ad, and the person who wrote the ad recieved credits and is very happy with it. It's not exactly stealing.

Hey jer, have you seen Red state?

Yeah, it's pretty good but very dialog heavy like everything he does. The ending is a little weird, but it was pretty solid.

His weight has nothing to do with how ridiculous those jorts are.

And your whole "I don't like things" putdowns thing doesn't work when I like a plethora of things (movies), including a plethora of the things you're trying to say I don't like.

Kevin Smith is not a director. Kevin Smith is a dude with a camera.

His Comic Book Men show is fine.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:27:30 PM
i meant specifically his work.

it's okay to not like it. it's even okay that you say you don't like it.

i don't get your inability to grasp that not everyone shares your opinion on shit and your need to try to convince everyone. just, like... don't like it and move on.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 03:29:25 PM
If he'd stop making movies like he continually says he's planning to do, I'll gladly move on. When he continually produces dumb bullshit, I will continue calling that bullshit bullshit.

And no, you just tried to say I like my horror comedies to be "more serious."

He said that only at one point in his career and then has since publicly explained continuously why he changed his mind and that is no longer the case. but get this, you can still just not watch his movies or pay attention to him and his existence won't effect you at all and to you, it will be like he retired.

Speaking of horror comedies, the best thing Jason Mewes has been involved with is Feast.

Feast rules.

Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:33:48 PM

your complaint was that in a movie about a killer moose, the moose kills someone.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat

No, that was not my complaint.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:37:57 PM
You implied he was unfunny because he pointed out a moose kills a kid in his script... like the bare minimum that we would expect about a movie about a killer moose. So...
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 03:40:09 PM
I was pointing out that he said it was "awesome" then described something dumb as hell as his example.


Sorry you have high hopes for Moose Jaws.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:41:43 PM
Sorry you have high hopes for Moose Jaws.

Again, taking a comedy-horror pretty seriously there, bud.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 03:44:32 PM
Making a comedy horror film doesn't automatically veil it from criticism and I'm not sure why you're pretending otherwise. "The film doesn't take itself seriously" is not a valid reason against calling a concept garbage.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:49:38 PM
Again, you don't have to like anything he does and I'm not saying he can't be criticized. I'm saying you're obsessive with your hate of things that you don't like, Smith or otherwise, and it's silly as hell, you're a hipster caricature.

You can not like the concept, but that I don't hate it just because you hate it doesn't mean I have "high hopes" for it -- I don't have high hopes for dick and fart jokes but I still laugh at them sometimes, because i would be an idiot to take dick and fart jokes seriously. Likewise, sometimes I enjoy a dopey movie.

Post by: Anna Karina on September 25, 2014, 03:51:08 PM
I don't care that you enjoy his shitty movies and haven't claimed otherwise.

However, you're upset that I have opinions about it.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat
Post by: jer on September 25, 2014, 03:52:45 PM
your twenty posts insisting that he's garbage certainly has me concvined that you don't care.

I haven't targetted your opinion on it at all, I targetted you being an asshole constantly about your opinions.
Title: Re: so tusk was pretty neat

I can give my opinions on things without caring that your opinion is different.

You're arguments here are akin to a briantightpants convo.

I've been doing that this entire thread. Perhaps you have developed reading comprehension problems.



Kevin Smith still sucks.

Yup, over 20 posts of crying "but he sucks!!!!@#%" really proves that you don't care that I disagree.

This is basically how the two pages have been:

[my opinion]

YOU TAKE DUMB MOVIES TOO SERIOUSLY!

No, I just think it sucks and he's an incompetent director with bad ideas.

SOMETIMES FART JOKES ARE FUNNY, LET ME LIKE WHAT I LIKE.

I came into this thread not knowing what Tusk was, and then I found out it was a Kevin Smith movie. I'm not a Kevin Smith fan, so I was just going to leave the thread (ctrl+w is a magical key combination), but then I came upon a great internet argument. Thanks, guys.

okay how about you guys both see tusk and then come back and say how you feel about it? that would probably cut through all the presumption and prejudice about the dude and his fatness and jncos and whatnot because yeah, i saw it and it was good. obviously i wasn't expecting a tour de force film that would sweep the awards worldwide but it was actually pretty fucking entertaining and last time i checked, that's why people usually see a movie.

I am not giving Kevin Smith money. Whenever there's a torrent, I'll probably download it.


Jer is the only one who brought up Kevin Smith's weight.

Yeah I was weary of it but I loved it. Saw it twice. I feel it's kind of destined to be a cult movie (eventually).

Hey, this movie was complete garbage. All right, later.

Left a friend's house who was watching it about 15 mins in.  I was not enjoying those 15 mins.


BUT speaking of great horror-comedy, has anyone seen Tucker and Dale vs. Evil?  That and Cabin in the Woods are the best horror comedy movies I've seen in recent memory.

dunno if it's horror-comedy per se, but Contagion was pretty freaky
