Zack And Miri Make A Rant

When I started this blog I said that I intended it to be for artwork and the odd rant. Well, I reckon I've put up enough of the former to justify a lash at the latter. If you're looking for proper movie review, look elsewhere. This ain't notin but a tirade. So here goes...
My girlfriend and I saw Zack And Miri Make A Porno last night and holy shit, it's bad. Laura asked me just before it started 'this is a Kevin Smith movie, right?'. 'Yeah' I thought, 'but we shouldn't hold that against it'. To be honest, the only reason I'd inflict another Kevin Smith movie on myself is 'cos the trailer for this effort actually looked good. I won't go on much as this isn't a review site (and this ain't much of a review!) but when Smith tries to make a genuienly sincere and tender moment, it comes off as hokey and as badly done as the same in a real porno. Saints preserve us!
There's a moment in the movie when Seth Rogen's character (indistinguishable from every other Seth Rogen character) gets a brainwave and announces to his film crew 'I've got it, everyone meet me here tomorrow and I'll be back in the morning with a script'. I can't imagine this is too far removed from what Smith announced when he concieved this can of manure. Come back Judd Apatow, all is forgiven! Okay, enough ranting, back to the artwork!
