Thumbs up Red State

As anyone else seen this yet? I loved it. Don't get all the backlash and negative reviews towards it.

I don't have On Demand. So I gotta wait for the DVD.

Doesn't EVERY Kevin Smith movie get shit on? Who cares, I love every movie he has done, yes every movie. Hell George Carlin was in Jersey Girl.

Yeah that one wasn't very good. I liked Zach and Miri but I wish he would make another movie with the Kevin Smith characters in it.

I watched it last night. I thought it was really good, if a bit flawed. It certainly wasn't perfect, but it was suspenseful and had some genuinely shocking moments. John Goodman and the guy who played the preacher were both fantastic.

Exactly how I feel about it. It's his best movie in a long time IMO.

He didn't write it, so it doesn't count.

Haven't seen this one yet, but I am very excited to. I am a huge Kevin Smith fan and I am really intrigued to see him make a non-comedy film.

Saw it yesterday, one of the best movies I've seen this year. Had a Tarantino feel.

It certainly doesn't deserve the blacklash, but it definitely doesn't deserve the praise it's getting by some either.

I thought this movie was incredibly average at best. It had almost no direction and no focus. It didn't really go anywhere. Just a movie that exists for the sake of existing. Kudos to Smith for venturing out of his comfort zone especially after a terrible movie like Cop Out, but this movie was just a big "meh" for me.
