Snoochie Boochie Noochies!

Since Saturday night, I’ve been hankering to rewatch the stupid stoner classics of the 90’s like Kevin Smith flicks and reacquaint myself with the hilarious Jay & Silent Bob, the lowlife duo that you can’t help but love. What a far cry from the genius, epic Hollywood action movies covering veterans in ‘Nam that have occupied my headspace for the last week.

Still, watching Mallrats last night (starring Jason Lee and Ethan Suplee, from My Name Is Earl) was a nice way to unwind. Plus, a soundtrack containing grunge tunes from Silverchair and Bush aswell as a cameo appearance from the legendary Stan Lee is nothing to be sniffed at. Using Smith's staple techniques of lightning-fast dialogue discussing socio-political commentary, this one provides a nice round of gags that will leave you chuckling, providing a pleasant change from heavier topics usually gracing the screens.

Film Count: 47 out of 365

Mallrats is an all time favorite of mine. I have a full poster framed on my wall and have seen it at least 50 times! Brodie Bruce is one of cinema's funniest characters and it's my favorite Smith film.

You should check out the Directors cut if you ever get the's drastically different, but still just as good. On a side note, I have a VHS copy of Mallrats signed by Smith and Michael Rooker!

I think Mallrats has become my fave KSmith, every time I see Clerks I grow a little less enamoured, and I've rejected every other one of his films.

Dolewhite, how did you ever come across such a fine piece of geek art? Love it! Wouldnt happen to have a spare lying around? Agreed on the character of Brodie! He is a walking reality check for kids on escalators worldwide!

Red Couch, how can you ever tire of Clerks? I'll always appreciate it for what it was at the time it was made. A shoestring budget and a whole lot of heart!
