It is fairly common knowledge now that everyone hates Kevin Smith. People hate his stupid movies. People hate his stupid attitude. People hate his stupid voice. People hate his stupid beard. People hate Kevin Smith, is the point. Look at the comments of any article centering on Smith and you’re bound to find comments criticizing his movies or his face or his beard or whatever else people may complain about in comment sections. Yes, it would be easy to get caught up in the tsunami of hate that is swelling off the coast of Kevin Smith, who is now a beachfront metropolis to make this clumsy analogy work.

The point is, the coastal city of Kevin Smith may not make sense to you. It may be weird or disturbing. Maybe you loved it at first, but as you spent more time there, you realized that it wasn’t home. Regardless, there are countless millions who do enjoy the coastal city of Kevin Smith and many more who would enjoy a return trip, if only they would make the time. Whatever group you fall into, there’s no sense in joining the tsunami of hate, because tsunamis only destroy and kill people. That’s why a wall had to be erected against the tsunami. That’s why this article is written in defense of Kevin Smith.

Kevin Smith to Tour With His Cartoon Movie

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, even if you’re imitating yourself. In this case, filmmaker Kevin Smith has announced his intention to travel theater to theater with his new film, Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, when it’s released later this spring. The model is the same one he used when his last film Red State come out two years ago, turning that independent release into a D.I.Y. hit.

Details and a trailer for Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie are coming sometime in the next month, but the official poster for the film was recently posted on Smith’s Blog.

What do you Bastards think? Are you ready to buy your tickets for Smith’s Groovy Cartoon and Q&A?
