Has anyone ever seen Kevin Smith's movie, "Red State?" I just watched it on Netflix and holy shit, it was not at all what I expected it to be. Kevin Smith really surprised me with that one.

So has anyone here ever seen it? What did you think of it?

Isn't he the one who directed the Jay & Silent Bob movies?


Yes, and he also plays Silent Bob (the reason Silent Bob is silent is because Smith didn't want to memorize a bunch of lines). He is awesome.

I'm interested in this movie, I'll have to check it out

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

1) FYI, there is a film thread.
2) I was kind of disappointed with this movie. I felt it was realistic in its portrayal of the various groups, even in its rather cynical moment. However, I didn't feel the film really did or said much. To the extent that it did, it was rather common sense / centrist political and social rhetoric. This may have been a self limiting aspect of the material, but I think Kevin Smith isn't quite equipped as a director to go beyond what he has.

Bleh! Gargaldy!

...wait. To what specifically are you referring? There's the debriefing scene at the end and then the one guy dancing around in prison who's told to STFU. I mainly saw the latter as an addendum. Assuming you mean the metaphor of the dude telling him to STFU. That is still hilarious, but not particularly profound.

No, I'm talking about John Goodman's anecdote about the two dogs.

Oh, OK. I still think that falls under my initial criticism of the film, but thinking back that was probably the most important part of the film.

I watched this when it first showed up on Netflix. I loved it, especially John Goodman's character. I definitely think it's one of Smith's better films, and he should do more in the genre.
