    Movie Review | Luke Whiston | 18th February 2020

    "So you're the target audience for that," a wag tweeted when I expressed an interest in Kevin Smith's first return to the Askewniverse proper since Clerks II in 2006. It's true, I am.

    Movie Review | Chris | 5th August 2006

    Clerks II is a good movie. Unfortunately, it is also a prime example of just how creatively stunted Kevin Smith truly is.
