In Reply to: Why kill them? Let it go...about Supes.... posted by Bruce The Shark on February 18, 2001 at 00:03:06:
: Hey, I have read all the moronic Smith bashers at AICN, and other sites, and to be honest, it can be a nice change of pace from some of the obssesive ass-kissing done here..not that it is not appropo..it IS the Kevin Smith site. Even I come here to asskiss and yell out how much I love all of Smith's films(Even the one I don't like,LOL..).
: Now, in two parts....
: First, let these people go. Even Kev knows he is not a very visual director(Yet...but J&SBSB seems to be rectifying that..perchance making the argument that the lack of depth was NEVER kevin's fault in the first place!)
: These people will never direct a movie, have a loyal fan base, a web-site, do meet and greets with the rich and famous, write thier fave comic books, etc.
: So let them lash out. It is kind of sad, really. Kevin is living his dream..I'm sure he could give two quarts of rat's piss if some geek doesn't like his films.
: The All-Time top rental history and his popularity speak for themselves.
: On Superman....
: They didn't like Kevin's take because it made the tragic error of having words that some might not understand due to sub-standard education, and it was also a rather smart script..and good.
: Hollywood isn't used to that.
: Cage would have been a joke, but other than that....
: (Start the "Jason Lee for Superman" chants now..)
: Anyway, the film, as written, just would have been too good to compete with far superior excercises such as Supes 2,3, and 4..or any of the Batman films, save for the first.
: Anyone who is FAIR will tell you Kevin wrote a great script.
: Anyone who judges Kevin by the fact they hate mallrats is gasping for air and circling the damn drain.
: Do you kill every ant you see?
: I don't...so let these idios go.
: : I just recently went to www.spidermanhype.com and went into the coming soon forums into a Superman forum. a name of one topic in there was anti-askew. i almost shitted my pants reading what all these people were saying about Kevin Smith and all his movies. they hated his movies and his SM lives script. only one person went on there and defended smith. and sadly it wasn't me, i lost my password so i can't post there. what he said was that all the dumbasses that were saying all that were all stupid WB asses that just want to "protect" there fucking franchise. and really, after SM 3 and 4, we're sadly not gonna see another one for a while. just wanted to fill you guys in on this.
