smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; July 5, 2005) It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...
Out of the original trilogy, I will go with the one I liked the least initially, but has continued to grow on me while the other two shrank away.
"You fuckers think just because a guy reads comics he can't start some shit?"
Plus, the DVD commentary has to be heard to be believed. Absolutely awesome.
If we include the rest of the Askewniverse, then Dogma might change some things. It's dramatic moments, like Affleck's two "War on God" speeches, resonate with me, and Lee's extended rant on the deleted scenes about the nature of hell is an amazing speech, probably Smith's best work.
Mallrats is the one that brought me into View Askewniverse and probably the one i've seen the most out of all. I actually still haven't seen Chasing Amy. I just haven't gotten around to it, that's all.

I realize this thread was initially created before we got the 6th addition to the family, but for me, it's Clerks 2 and it's not even close.
2 words: Donkey Scene. Those climactic (oooh cake) 10 minutes where the entire movie comes together might be the most hilarious amazing scene in cinematic history. Throw in Pickle Fucker, the LOTR vs. Star Wars rant, and every thing Elias says or does, and you have Kevin Smith's pinnacle.
1- Clerks/ 2-Dogma/ 3- Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back/ 4- Mallrats/ 5- Chasing Amy
Haven't seen Clerks 2 yet. Chasing Amy is the only one I wouldn't see again in a heartbeat. Decent movie but really depressing at times. I'm with JayJayDean, Clerks wins it for me due to Randall. Can't get enough of him.
Clerks, definitely. Chasing Amy is #2 - not a fan of the Affleck/Joey Lauren Adams story, but Jason Lee is comic gold in that movie. Mallrats is #3 only because I hate the London brothers with a passion.
But J&SB are my favorite parts of the whole Jersey series, so J&SBSB is definitely my favorite of all of them.
I stay for the credits and I find myself compelled to actually read them. If I see a funny name I'll chuckle about that, but in general just marvel about how many people it took to make those 90 to 120 minutes I just watched.
