Around the release of Cop Out, Kevin Smith wasn’t pleased with critics. His buddy comedy was widely panned in reviews, leading Smith to wonder why studios would show movies to critics for free so that they could “shit all over it.” A few years later, Smith said he was going through a “crazy emotional moment” and made his peace with film critics by accepting the fact that it’s not possible for everybody to like his movies.
The writer-director said the third act of his upcoming movie, Yoga Hosers, is an apology to some of those reviewers. Below, learn more about Kevin Smith’s apology.

In case you haven’t heard, Kevin Smith is working on a TV series adaptation of the MGM cult classic sci-fi adventure The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension from 1984. It was Smith’s work directing an episode of The CW series The Flash last year that turned some heads at MGM, and now he’s deep in development on the project with an eye on some filmmakers he hopes to recruit to direct some episodes.
Find out some of Smith’s ambitious picks to direct some of the Buckaroo Bonzai TV series after the jump. Read More »
Based on the last trailer and Kevin Smith‘s recent output as a filmmaker, you probably already know whether you’ll see his upcoming film, Yoga Hosers. The Winnipeg-set comedy, which recently earned a PG-13 rating, picks up where Smith left off with Tusk. He keeps trying new things as a writer/director, telling oddball stories that aren’t for everyone. Yoga Hosers might be his oddest yet, featuring Canadian Nazis, Bratzis, and no shortage of emoticons.
Below, watch the new Yoga Hosers trailer.

Director Kevin Smith is back with a movie that just might be his most insane yet. Yes, even though the Clerks filmmaker has done movies with a giant poop monster and Mark Hamill as a villain called Cock Knocker, and a horror movie with a walrus man, his Canadian-set, teenage horror comedy Yoga Hosers is the most bat shit crazy movie he’s ever made.
Some of the /Film crew caught Yoga Hosers at Sundance, and now the first trailer for the flick proves just how crazy it is. Johnny Depp is back as his goofy detective character Guy Lapointe from Tusk, but Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp (daughters of both Smith and Depp) play the chatty teens known as “The Colleens” in their first lead roles on the big screen.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
For the fourth time in his career, writer-director Kevin Smith had gotten into a disagreement with the Motion Picture Association of America, due to the rating of his latest film, Yoga Hosers. However, before the scheduled appeals screening even occurred, the MPAA took another look at the film and decided it was only fair to give Smith his desired PG-13 rating. Now that all of that MPAA nonsense is behind the director, he’s ready to take Yoga Hosers on tour this summer.
Find out below when and where you can see Smith present Yoga Hosers live.

Kevin Smith has, once again, found himself in a dispute with the MPAA. The Motion Picture Association of America has branded Smith’s latest film, Yoga Hosers, with an R-rating. This isn’t the director’s first time appealing a rating, but in this instance, the reasoning behind the R-rating — a drawn pair of testicles — is laughable, even by the MPAA’s standards.
Below, read what Smith had to say about the Yoga Hosers rating.

It seems like there’s a huge divide between film critics and general audiences when it comes to their enjoyment of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, if you look at what some of the viewers who enjoyed the film have to say, including the more hardcore comic book fans, you’ll see that they have many of the same complaints that critics wrote in their reviews.
In my personal opinion, while there’s a visual feast to be had, and plenty of blockbuster spectacle, the story lacks focus, is packed with far too much disjointed set up for future movies, and has a real problem with taking itself too seriously, despite the studio trying to paint it as an “an enjoyable afternoon at the movies.” That’s not to say it’s not enjoyable at all, as it has plenty of great cinematic moments, but they just don’t add up to a truly fantastic movie.
Still, if you’re still of the opinion that there is a divide between fans and critics, how about we hear from someone who is not only a huge comic book fan, but also has an unfavorable relationship with critics: Kevin Smith. The filmmaker, who is also good friends with new Batman Ben Affleck, doesn’t seem to be pleased with the movie Zack Snyder made. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
If you follow writer and director Kevin Smith on Instagram, then you probably already know that he’s currently working on an episode of The CW comic book series The Flash. If you don’t follow the filmmaker on Instagram, and you didn’t read our post about this news back in January, you might have just learned something.
Nowadays, if you’re not a Kevin Smith fan, you probably don’t go out of your way to watch his movies. But if you are a Kevin Smith fan, even if you don’t watch The Flash, you may have a reason to tune in to the episode that he’s directing. It’s not clear, but in one of the pictures from the set of the DC Comics series, Kevin Smith seems to tease a cameo from his signature characters, Jay & Silent Bob.
Get the details on the potential Jay and Silent Bob cameo in The Flash after the jump. Read More »
