    I know people say that there is no such thing as bad publicity, but I would much rather play Metal Gear or Earthbound games with compelling characters and settings over games that are more created to shock or fill a quota. A suppose a more fair example would be pulp novels.

    Being how sleazy Hollywood is, there really is no bad publicity. What we view as controversial, which is typically bad to us, for them is good, and the more controversial, the better.

Again, the closest reverse parallel to the film Sparko is talking about that I've seen is Surviving the Game.
    Ah, okay. Never really saw it because, as another person put it, it felt like Kevin Smith was trying to be the Atheist equivalent of Tyler Perry.

    It was a dumb movie, but that's par for the course with Kevin Smith films. Dude's initial films were funny when I was in high school, but you usually expect indie directors to grow with their audience, and show that they're more creative than their initial work. Smith turned out to be a one trick pony, and whenever he strays too far from his usual gross-out comedies they don't do so well. I hear he's doing a reboot of Jay and Silent Bob. Big surprise there.

    The only Kevin Smith movie I've seen is Tusk. I don't even have commentary on that one, just...yep, seen it.

    One of the few I have not seen actually. Just didn't sound particularly interesting. Guess it's unnerved some audiences, but I figure it's your typical body horror done shoddily or something.

    Yeah, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Saw the trailer for it, and was like, "This is Grumpy Old Men meets Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back."

    Universal has cancelled this movie.

    Still, the fact that it made it into production and all the way up to release is disturbing.

    On the plus side, Jason Mewes looks like he got his act together. He actually looks pretty good in the trailer
