Why does it have to be PTA or Kevin Smith? And how exactly does an Oscar nomination indicate how good a filmmaker is?
I despise Kevin Smith, though.
I watch Kevin Smith's movies too... and don't hate him. I watch a lot of silly/stupid movies for a kick. And although, his films may contain some raw langauge, they are made for a very young audience... especially "Jake and Silent Bob Strike Back" with Seann William Scott and Shannon Elizabeth.
I laughed, it's good stuff... but give me a break if we are going to compare him to PTA!
An Oscar nod is not that important, but I honestly don't think a girl visiting her boyfriend at a convience store to talk about snowballing is up there with the drama in the resturant scene with Claudia and Jim.
If Smith wants to talk fine, but he needs to try his luck at making a real film before he slams people who do such a fine job of making them like PTA has.
Maybe it's just me???
