Default Tusk--see it.

Those of you who are into movies that take chances, are unique, and are fearless, need to get out and see this movie--particularly if you love horror comedy. The reviews are great for Kevin Smith's new movie, calling it out of left field, wholly unique and original, and batshit crazy in the best possible way. It's probably the best movie KS has ever made.

You know how people feel that nothing original comes out of Hollywood? Well, this one's for you, just premiered at TIFF and will open on 1,000 screens on September 19th, I believe.

Check out the review in Variety and go support this independent film!

A couple of months ago Kevin Smith hugged me when I told him he was my inspiration to start writing. I owe him a viewing of Tusk but I've been looking forward to it for ages anyway.

At first I was all about Kevin Smith for his indie spirit and his knack or dialogue, then I was like, OK this guy is never going to mature as a filmmaker and go beyond high school type humor and really mediocre camera work, then yadayadayada, there are films I saw and others I didn't, but I always felt that for a guy with such promise at the outset, he didn't go as far as he seemed to be capable of at first.

So yeah, I'm definitely interested in checking this out 'cause I always had a fondness for the dude. He was one of THE major embodiments of true indie filmmaking in the 90s. Making it happen all on his own dime and with no fancy 100K film degree to show for.

Why would Pennypacker fire shots? Not a fan of Kevin Smith?
