last week, i went to the theatre ( third time this year) and i watched 'Zack & Miri Make A Porno'.
i didn't love it. i much prefer Seth Rogen acting out his own writing. it may be because i have read all of Kevin Smith's comics, watched all of his movies, attended 2 question & answers at conventions, and listened to over 60 hours of his podcast, and i can't really be shocked the way an average viewer would be watching 'Zack & Miri'. i can tell when Seth Rogen or Craig Robinson is doing a 'Kevin Smith line', and it could just as easily be Jason Lee or Ben Affleck and i don't think it would make a difference. Don't get me wrong, i found a lot of this movie entertaining. i liked seeing Jason Mewes act in a Kevin Smith film, instead of just playing an amped up version of himself. it wasn't a huge stretch but hey, it was acting. i also, really enjoyed the cameos by Justin Long and Brandon Routh. AND i realised that Elizabeth Banks is smoking hot. i give it a PRETTYGOOD, because i would definitely watch it again.
later that night, while drawing, i watched a bit of Chasing Amy. i forwarded through a lot of this. i like to sometimes just watch the good parts. i still love this movie. the opening scene at the comic convention is brilliant, and i think the 5 minutes that Jay & Silent Bob are in it is the best those 2 have ever been written. GREAT.
