I also had a nice time with my own little Kevin Smith marathon. I had seen "Clerks" and "Dogma" before but not some of his other stuff. So I popped in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" along with "Mallrats" which were nice little comedies that had their moments. It was "Chasing Amy" that I truly enjoyed. I had always avoided the movie because somehow "Ben Afflek" and "romance" in the same sentence didn't appeal to me. Boy, was I wrong. Perhaps if I saw this movie 3 years ago I probably would have hated it. It would have come off as complete Hollywood bullshit that a straight man would suddenly fall in love with a lesbian and that she would fall for him. Well, having lived it with a slight reversal of roles, I can say that it wasn't complete Hollywood b.s. It hit on a lot of themes in my life. I guess one appreciates love stories a whole lot more when one is in love.
If there ever is a movie made about my life done in Kevin Smith style, I want tenax and furrysparkles to play Jay and Silent Bob, respectively. That would be some funny shit, in a weird, nerdy kinda way.
