L.D. Ablo: So he's coming out of retirement from making movies to make another movie and then will go back into retirement. Again.
chapman: This man is on a mission to make sure that nobody respects him as an artist by the end of his career. Though I'm not sure which would be worse, Clerks 3 or more episodes of that crap reality show.
quinnchan: Old reddit news is old.
The Angry Hand of God: I look forward to this. Clerks and Clerks 2 were very funny. I don't understand all the hate.
MurphyMurphy: The Angry Hand of God: I look forward to this. Clerks and Clerks 2 were very funny. I don't understand all the hate.You don't understand. Your senses and tastes aren't refined enough to understand.It certainly isn't just a further propagation of the "I'm on the internet and I'm edgy and cool with excellent taste and that means nothing under the sun is as cool as it was back in the day". No sir, all of these haters have good reason to hate and they all hated whatever they hated before it was cool to hate it.You're right to find them funny. Clerks was cheap and looked like crap and was just vulgar punch after vulgar punch, and this is why we love it. And it's also why at least some of us loved Clerks II.And I think Clerks III is definitely going to clock in 'acceptably vulgar and funny' at the minimum, and who knows? It may very well end up being his best. Though I think you have to go pretty far to top 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'..... which I think is by far his best to date.One thing is guaranteed. Whatever Dante is doing and wherever he is in Clerks III... he isn't even supposed to be there that day./I pretend Chasing Amy never happened
MurphyMurphy: /I pretend Chasing Amy never happened
timujin: MurphyMurphy: /I pretend Chasing Amy never happenedAw, come on, without Chasing Amy, we'd never have had this
Lsherm: I'm looking forward to it, but since he pissed off Harvey Weinstein I'm not sure where he's going to get the money for it.Red State wasn't very good.
GloomCookie613: Agreed on Red State. It felt confused to me. Like the film was having an identity crisis over being horror or black comedy. Entire movie had me doing the notsureifserious.jpg face.
MurphyMurphy: GloomCookie613: Agreed on Red State. It felt confused to me. Like the film was having an identity crisis over being horror or black comedy. Entire movie had me doing the notsureifserious.jpg face.Indeed,though the comical twist at the end and the fact that I can't hate John Goodman in anything pushed it just into "I think I like this" territory.It's what you get sometimes when people try new things. I'd rather he made it than not./yeah yeah, ok. I'll take back what I said about Chasing Amy as it's sort of the same thing.//Cards on the table? I simply cannot stand that woman's voice.

Ash: although I wonder why Kevin always wears that ugly jersey. Orange and Blue don't do it for me.
Ash: I'm not going to hate on the "jorts" because shorts are comfortable and I can't blame someone for wanting comfort. The jersey on the other hand... Anyway, I don't understand the Fark hate for Kevin and I probably never will. Michael Bay? Understood. Kevin Smith? Don't get it. Oh well. I would be more curious if someone liked everything he's done as opposed to hating everything he's done, but I still don't get the hate. I think somewhere in between 'OK' to 'Pretty Good' and I guess that haters gotta hate and trolls gotta troll.
Premeditated_Road_Rage: "20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.20 years later, with no plan or provocation fresh money-bearing dumptruck tracks in my front yard, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III. It's been like hanging out with old friends.And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion...CLERKS III will be the best film I'll ever make attention-whoring that I will ever do...until Clerks IV, that is."Loved his early stuff, but started to lose interest at Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
