Phil’s Top 5… Kevin Smith Films

Phil’s Top 5… Kevin Smith Films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Kevin Smith Films


Close but no cigar: Clerks 2, Red State, Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie


5 – Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back
Take two immature, silly but fun characters and you end up with a immature, silly but fun film. Not my favourite Smith joint but a hoot none the less.


4 – Dogma
Smith tackled religion in his own very unique way – with lots of dick jokes and poop monsters. Also a fine performance from Alan Rickman.  


3 – Chasing Amy
Smith’s third film was still made for peanuts, Chasing Amy was Smith doing a more sensitive story and even included his own unique take on that infamous Jaws injury scene.  Classic


2 – Clerks
Clerks is a cracking independent film that set the bar for low budget films to follow.  Weak acting for sure but memorable characters and some cracking dialogue.


1 – Mallrats
It’s not as raw as Clerks but Mallrats is funnier, sillier and ruder.  Packed of memorable characters and sharp dialogue, Mallrats is criminally under appreciated.

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Stan Lee cameos!


Close but no cigar: The Hulk, Daredevil (2003), Big Hero 6, Captain America: The Winter Solider

5 – Iron man
A case of mistaken identity, Lee is confused for the one and only Hugh Hefner.  To be fair it was an easy mistake to make…


4 – Captain America Civil War
“Are you Tony Stank?”.  Genius.  And a very witty comment on delivery drivers in general.


3 – MallRats
Not a Marvel film but Kevin Smith’s underrated offering see’s a younger Stan Lee offering advice to Jason’s Lee Brody.  It’s sweet, funny and perfectly placed.


2 – Deadpool
Stan Lee as a Strip club DJ. Sold.


1 – The Amazing Spider-Man
Stan Lee’s librarian works away as chaos and destruction take place behind him.  It’s funny, well played and perfectly timed.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Most people are kinda over Kevin Smith now. The once promising director is now consigned to poorly thought out low-budget tat or TV and it’s hard to remember that once upon a time Smith was one of the hottest directors in town mostly due to his début – Clerks.  Years later Clerks still holds up.  Yes it’s direction is threadbare but it’s script is still spot on, doing what Tarantino did but without being as obvious, and the performances surprisingly good.  A product of it’s time but one that still holds up.  Essential viewing.

Best Bit: Video Ordering!
