You know, I was thinking about the direct-to-home movie thing, Netflix doing the Pee-Wee movie and so on, and it seems weird that Kev Smith doesn't go that route, his movies are perfect for that kind of release (Tusk really would have benefited from this, the audience seeing it at once while buzz was at the highest, rather than a meager indie theatrical release with a lot of talk and then a media release when no one gave a d*mn anymore).

I'm watching Mallrats now and one reason I'm excited is, honestly, now Kevin knows how to freakin' write a movie.  The original Mallards is just pieced together, there's a 2 1/2 hour cut I've never made it through, there's not a lot of balance or noticeable beats... it's a movie that taught him how to make a movie.  Honestly, I like Clerks and Clerks II, but Clerks is an indy flick and Clerks 2 is a small-budget movie.  Big difference.  I know that Kev's been tossing around this idea for a while (since the original Mallrats) but I imagine it's only been written recently.  And let's not forget Kev Smith actually DID help write a Die Hard movie.
