    Rich spoke about how he identified with Slacker and other Linklater films, well, seeing as how I worked in a gas station/convenience store in college, I pretty much couldn't help but love Clerks. I generally like his sense of humor and the freedom of sexual expression present in his films.

    *1. Clerks - A- (very rough around the edges, but with the best jokes and payoff)

    2. Red State - A-
    *3. Chasing Amy - B+
    4. Jersey Girl - B+ (Tugged my Daddy strings)
    *5. Mallrats - B+ (What can I say? I find it funny)
    6. Zack and Miri Make a Porno - B
    *7. Dogma - B- (He tried to create a challenging film and there are some solid ideas here, but it is so over the map that while I really like certain sections, others are a chore)
    8. Clerks II - C+
    9. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back - C+ (Quitting while you're ahead is obviously not a concept Smith is familiar with)

    Own: 4 (I don't know if I would own this many if I was buying them today. Certainly not Dogma.)

    Chasing Amy is by far my favorite, but I like Clerks a lot, too. Mallrats is OK, but I pretty much hate Dogma.

    I'm not a Kevin Smith devotee, but his scripts have me laughing out loud at times. [​IMG]

    Love Smith's work for a long time now. Dogma and Chasing Amy are two of my favorite films and Clerks is really damn funny as well. One of my favorite working filmmakers. kinda glad I never bought Mallrats, cause now there's a killer SE coming out. [​IMG]

    All I own is Clerks, which is probably all I'll ever need from him. The "Evening w/Kevin Smith" DVDs have been entertaining, though.
