  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. Tusk is on my list. Yoga Hosers looked a little to kiddie for my tastes. Have you watched them?

        2. 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.

  4. Amy Adams has some fantastic roles under her belt.We provide here the list of Amy Adams upcoming movies 2018 She’s played Lois Lane in the recent Superman movies, a real-life Disney Princess in Enchanted, and aviation legend Amelia Earhart in Night at the Museum 2. We also loved her in The Fighter — heck, she’s even worked with the Muppets! 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. Well, with her new movies and TV project, I can only hope Adams gets the recognition she deserves.So to help keep you on top of this talented lady‘s anticipated new movie releases, we’ve made a handy list of the next Amy Adams films and tv shows. Let’s check them out! Via
