Kevin Smith’s early work inspired a generation. Films like Clerks and Chasing Amy set the tone for the ‘90s independent scene and helped launched the careers of actors like Ben Affleck. In recent years, his films have gotten increasingly weirder, and it feels like it’s all been leading up to Yoga Hosers.
In Judeo-Christian theology, angels are divine servants of God who live in Heaven. This is true of angels in pop culture as well… but sometimes they’re also dicks. For some reason, TV shows, movies, comics, and more are obsessed with the idea of these heavenly beings embodying humanity at its worst. How many angels…
Kevin Smith’s Dogma is a star-studded, religious themed, highly offensive, violent and gross R-rated road trip comedy about a descendant of Jesus Christ saving the world from two fallen angels. That madcap collection of ideas worked on me as a teenager. Now, not so much.

Kevin Smith's horror movie Tusk is about an old man who kidnaps a younger man, drugs him, and then slowly turns him into a human walrus. But this idea didn't just pop into Silent Bob's head. First it was a real-life ad for a roommate, a listing so odd it inspired a horror movie.
Yikes. Tusk is one part Misery, one part man-to-walrus body mutilation movie. We're really not sure what to expect from Kevin Smith's latest — but he's definitely horrifying us.
Good news for the non-color blind! Despite the picture tweeted last week of Ben Affleck as Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman Vs.

In director Kevin Smith's Gen-X staple Mallrats, the character Willam (Ethan Suplee) spends the majority of the film fruitlessly attempting to see a schooner hidden in a Magic Eye stereographic image. But thanks to some 21st century Photoshop manipulation, we learn that there's good reason Willam never could see that…
