i dont care much for the jay and silent bob duo--mostly jay is stereotypical and boring. Kevin Smith used to be able to craft a story that could intrigue, albeit in a simplistic, everyday person approach. Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma--all enjoyable. I think his style has been diluted by his success. I still enjoy him because you can tell he just loves living life his way and on his terms. i find that endearing to a certain extent. While scripted, i enjoy the moments of comic book men that just show a normal dude who has money and gets to be the nerd he has always been--don't get why people hate on him. Im kind of surprised that you dont like him, because i thought he would be right up your alley in terms of his cheesiness (dont take that as a negative, i mean it in terms of the correlations between you and him in regards to the love of off the beaten path cinema.)
Canaan is a fan, i guess you could say. This post was very stream of consciousness.
