  • Review: Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is a verbally challenged nostalgia trip

    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. And I'm not even that ashamed of it. In fact, Kevin Smith's films have aligned with several formative periods of my life, becoming dashed in parts of my brain like a ship on rocks, so for better or worse I'll always give the guy a chance. Although as much as I'm fond of the silly goof and his sweary adventures, you'll still never catch me in a pair of jorts.

  • Breakdown: Things you missed in the Wonder Woman first-look footage

    Movie Feature | Matt Looker | 20th January 2016

    The first glimpse of Wonder Woman in all her inequality-correcting, leather-bodice-wearing glory has been released and it is fascinating. Like the true geeks and film buffs with one-of-a-kind expert knowledge that we are, here’s a deep-dive into the footage with wild speculation about some things that may happen at some point in the film or indeed ever.

  • Prepare to feel old

    Movie News | Ali | 24th August 2012

    I refuse to watch it again to see how it's aged, because something tells me lines like "Spread my cheeks, so he can see the fucking stink nuggets!" won't hold up all that well. Happy birthday, Jay and Silent Bob.

    UPDATE: It has since been pointed out to me that Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back was released on August 24th, 2001. I knew that. I just thought it was still 2011. Fucking hell, my moral high ground over Kevin Smith gets lower every day.

  • Red State

    Movie Review | Matt | 7th September 2011

    Matt reviewed Red State earlier this month. As it's out today, here's a fresh reminder of his crazy thoughts and opinions.

    In recent years, the loud-mouthed, foul-mouthed Kevin Smith has become the very antithesis of his former silent onscreen persona. With a network of daily updated podcasts sprawling out from his website, Smith is even intent on giving up filmmaking altogether so he can just…um…‘talk’ for a living. But after Cop Out was torn to shreds by ‘biased critics out to get him’, Red State is a one-man retort railing against the Hollywood system. For all his often very funny stoner ramblings, it seems that, with this film, Smith is actually trying to say something.

  • Two incredible Kevin Smith facts from the Red State press release

    Movie News | Ali | 1st September 2011

    Regardless of what I thought about Red State (review coming soon), there are two fantastic facts about Our Kev in the movie's press release that are too good not to share. There's me thinking I knew him!

  • Films on TV round-up: shark bites! God smites!

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 17th July 2011

    DISCLAIMER: there is no God. There are sharks, though: a friend of mine's seen one. Of course, he also claims he saw Jesus in a Findus Crispy Pancake but that's beside the point.

  • Kevin Smith still smashing the system, being an insufferable berk

    Movie News | Ali | 4th July 2011

    That Kevin Smith, he's a loose cannon! He's a maverick! He's a liability! He's self-distributing his new movie, Red State, and making a total hash of it! But what do I know: I'm just a critic. (*boo hiss etc*)
