I don't have a lot to say

I spent yesterday in Tacoma and it was hot there too.

I have this desire to wash my car for the express purpose of spraying water everywhere.

I saw Clerks 2 on Friday and I loved it, of course. It complimented the first film very well, it was filled with vulgar humor that is sure to offend many people and it have an awesome choreographed dance sequence to a Jackson 5 song. I want to see it again sometime soon.

I just wanted to be the first to say that whats-her-face's boobs were mesmerizing in that dance scene! In fact, I think they were the whole point of the dance scene.

I never saw the first Clerks, but I did like the second. (Though, I'm partial to Mallrats.)

I agree that her boobs did seem like the main point of the dance scene. That and I think Kevin Smith just really wanted to try out a crane shot over a bunch of dancers.

The first clerks movie is good, but I have always liked Mallrats and Chasing Amy more.

Jeresy Girl? It was nothing like Jeresy Girl. The only comparison I could make to that movie is maybe the quality of the cinematography. I don't understand that statement at all.
If I were to compare it to other Kevin Smith films, I would say that it's 70% clerks (mostly people standing around, making dirty jokes about pop culture, occasionally abandoning the job completely to go drive somewhere or hanging out on the roof) 10% Mallrats (silly slapstick), 10% Dogma (religious humor), 10% Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (self referencing jokes and cameos). Jeresy Girl? Your friend Zak is going to have to explain that one a little bit better. It gets a little sentimental about them all growing older at the end, which I guess you could compare to Jeresy Girl, sort of, but that's a weak comparison at best.

I paid matinee price for it, but I would be willing to see it again. But I'm also a big fan of Kevin Smith's movies and am usually willing to see it again before it's released to DVD anyways. I saw Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back like 3 times in the theater, which might null and void my opinion. :P

Kevin Smith has always been a bit of a shmaltz, though. Jeresy Girl is the worse offender because becoming a parent does that to people, but I don't see a major change in his style of writing. Kevin Smith is a sappy guy with a thing for crude humor.

I hate the term "Hollywood" in describing movies. It's much too vague to carry any meaning and when people drop it to be some sort of negative term for shitty mainstream movies, I don't know how to properly address it.
