Red State (2011)
« on: January 11, 2014, 11:05:08 pm »

I owe Tough Sh*t all the credit in finally getting me off my ass and searching out a copy of Red State from my Library. After reading the book, I was very excited to see exactly what Kevin Smith did with the movie, especially with Quentin Tarantino's ringing endorsement for the flick. I can see exactly why QT had nothing but good things to say about the movie for a couple of reasons. This is clearly Kevin Smith's ode to what makes a great Tarantino movie. You can play Red State right alongside any of his films. The other thing that makes this a movie to see is Michael Parks, John Goodman and Mellisa Leo, each doing their roles justice.

The movie isn't without flaws, as the story isn't all that original, but I like this "new" Kevin Smith going in a different route and taking a chance on something outside his comfort zone. How long can he keep milking Jay & Silent Bob? Hey, I love the stuff that lives in the Viewaskew Universe, but I also want to see what he can do outside of it. Definitely worth a Rent. Check it out.

Just watched the 'Making of' Documentary. In the book Tough Sh*t, 3 chapters were devoted to the production of the film and I was curious and hopeful that the doc would basically show what was written on the pages. It was. Everything is covered with the exception of the writing phase. I thought the doc was good and very entertaining. Most of Kevin's films on DVD have docs of some kind and they all do a good job of getting inside the nuts and bolts of the production. I just wished that the run time was even longer.
