But Make A Porno is a great film, Smith's best easily, and the J Long scene is fantastic.

I think it's his worse - but that scene is unbelievably tite.

Clerks 2 > Clerks > Chasing Amy > Dogma > Jay & Silent Bob > Mallrats > Zack and Miri
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.

Mark Wahlberg talking to a fake plant in The Happening because it's so bad, it's hilarious!

That was supposed to be funny.

The opening of The Happening

I wouldn't go so far as saying it's a "bad" film, but the shotgun scene in The Godfather Part II stands above the rest of it.

Man, seeing people say that Zack and Miri and Clerks 2 are Kevin Smith's best films is.. I just can't wrap my head around that.  They're signs that maybe he should've stopped when Jersey Girl bombed.

Actually, this is probably my #1.

How dare you!  In no way is Cabin Boy a "bad" movie.

I am a big, big, fan of the car chase in Matrix Reloaded.  If they had a story to go with it, would be one heck of a film.

See, this I don't get. To me Reloaded has a more compelling story than the first one, which is basically just the Christ story with some Dark City added for good measure. The Matrix has an interesting concept, Reloaded actually has interesting plot points.

A good concept is better than a passable plot.  The Matrix left ALOT to the imagination, the world was sketched out in such a way that most of its details were left to viewers fantasy and interpretation.  For me at least, this ambiguity was fascinating.  There are gigabytes of internet space occupied by fan discussions and arguments about the various aspects of the Matrix universe and its mythology.  The sequels filled in the gaps, poorly in my opinion, and explained everything away.  I cannot think of a better example of a sequel harming the original.

The Matrix Reloaded did a great job of switching things around. Most movies begin with the exposition, but this one stopped the movie for lots of exposition at the end. It is like a video game. Now that you have completed the level, we will show you a ten-minute video explaining everything you have just done.
