  1. Good podcast, but still can’t believe it was picked. You mentioned you are a big fan of Fifth Element, is that in your top 100?

    1. I do like 90s Kevin Smith films a lot, and I think this is his best film.

      The Fifth Element is an awesome movie. I don’t know if it’s a top 100, but it’s close.

        1. I have seen both Tusk and Yoga Hosers, Eddie. Tusk is a very good film, if the viewer is open minded. It’s definitely extraordinary. I would give it a solid B+. Yoga Hosers is a fun watch, but is a little too far fetched, even for this Kevin Smith apologist. I would give it a grade of C+ or B-.


  2. Who in their right mind writes an article about Chasing Amy and includes “Ethan Suplee” as a star and not Jason Lee?!

  3. Jason Lee was BRILLIANT in Chasing Amy! Sure he wasn’t a skilled actor at the time, but that is what made his performance great. It was unique and organic. And manic!


    1. That’s the charm of Kevin Smith’s early movies. There is a lot of rawness to his films which compliments his stories and makes them more genuine.

Arguably one of Hollywood’s most underrated actresses, with a wealth of experience in many genres of movies, she’s still not managed to get herself an Oscar.
