Escape to the Movies: "Red State"

I reviewed it. Stop asking.

ALSO! Does Warner Bros. WANT you to think "The Dark Knight Rises" looks shitty?

I'd totally watch a Shore Leave movie.

"Why because their animals fuck'em that's why" if nothing elese I'll remember that line of dialogue.

And how about that ending I kept waiting for something gruesome to happen to the villain but nothing happens.

In case anyone else cares...
The Trains-Formers were created by James Farr and are on YouTube. My 4 year old loves them.

I would kill to find the figure that Bob shows in the credits. Best B-Day prezzie ever for my son.

Gee, maybe if you went to see Contagion, you wouldn't have gone to see yet another shitty Kevin Smith film. Or did they not have a screening?

Red State...compared to The Room or Birdemic?

Ok, Bob. I know the movies suck, but now you're calling out films that have been the target of all types of lambasting from, what some would call, your parent company's big rival: Channel Awesome.

That said, what's it going to take to get you on a panel with these guys, or in at least a crossover, if even possible?

It's almost as if you're literally calling out to them.

That said, Kevin Smith, I wish you got it back on track, and soon. The world needs you to direct a proper Daredevil film.

I have mixed feelings about the movie myself. The conclusion is terribly unsatisfying, and there are some bits that really don't add up, but 1. they explain why they took the straight guys ("Men who would share a women are just as bad as homosexuals" or something to that effect) and 2. how in the hell is this anywhere near as bad as The Room or Green Lantern?

The film has lots of problems, but it has engaging enough characters (I didn't want the captured teens or John Goodman to die) and is at least coherent and mildly entertaining. That is infinitely more than I could say about either of those films.

Kind of mediocre? Sure. But, one of the worst movies of the year? In a year that gave us Transformers: Dark Of The Moon? Absolutely not. I don't what's gotten into you to come down on a fairly unremarkable movie this hard. Also,unrelated, didn't you say you LIKED Zack and Miri?

Great post and right to the point. I am not sure if this is in fact the best place to ask but do you guys have any idea where to get some professional writers? Thank you
