Oh to be fat and awesome again

29 03 2011

My brother-in-law and I were talking this morning about Kevin Smith’s Red State and how he’s going to have the chance to see it tonight with Kevin Smith there in Atlanta. I’m insanely jealous, because if you follow @ThatKevinSmith on twitter, you’d see that the promotion he’s been doing on tour just sounds like an experience not to be missed. Plus, damn it, it’s Kevin Smith. He’s awesome.

But, then, there’s the less awesome side. There’s crap like Cop Out. I’d include Zack and Miri Make a Porno, too. As my brother was saying, since Jersey Girl, Kevin Smith hasn’t done much that was like the old school Kevin Smith and we both miss that. I mean, you know that it’s never going to have broad commerical appeal, but that is the appeal for Kevin Smith lovers everywhere. He hits a range that is awesome in its own right, even if it doesn’t gross beeellions. He goes into that during his relatively recent Too Fat for 40 which you can find streaming on Netflix. Still, love the guy and I want to see Red State kick ass.
