Smith carved his own niche out of nothing and gladly returned to indie filmmaking after getting burned by Hollywood. He is first and foremost a comedy director, but also has a knack for horror, which makes for an oeuvre well worth exploring.

His newfound independence is a true blessing, one he exploits to the fullest. I thoroughly enjoyed Smith's new film and I surely hope he can keep this up for a while longer.

Kevin Smith tackles religion in his signature style. I remembered liking Dogma quite a bit when I first watched it, but that was quite a while ago. The film is still pretty funny and there are several smart and pointed references scattered throughout, but two hours is a bit much and some scenes tend to drag.

Two fallen angels believe they've found a loophole in God's rules, which would allow them to rejoin heaven. In order to do that they have to destroy the entire universe, but they don't seem to care that much. God is aware of their plan and she sends a few of her disciples in order to stop them from ending everything in existence.

It's fun to see famous actors make a fool of themselves, there are some great gags and the level of absurdity is quite high. Smith leans a bit too much on the dialogues though and the presentation comes off a little cheap and rushed. Dogma is still a hoot, the type of comedy that's sorely lacking these days, but its imperfections kept me from calling it a personal favorite.

Smith and Mewes are way too old for this, but the rest of the film is pretty zany and fun. Some decent meta jokes, a couple of funny pop culture references and solid pacing make this an amusing, though slightly dated comedy. Not quite up there with Smith's better films, but if you're looking for a silly diversion this is a pretty solid option.

Slightly disappointed in this third part. I'm not the biggest Smith/Clerks fan, but I did appreciate the two earlier films. The balance between comedy and drama never feels quite right here, with the comedy being a little outdated and the drama coming off as convoluted and out of place.

When Randal has a heart attack, he considers his past life and concludes he wasted most of it. When he's back on his feet, he plans to turn his life working in the convenience store into a movie. He writes a script and invites all his friends and palls to play themselves, which leads to more reminiscing about the past.

This is probably a film that works better for people more invested in Smith's Clerks universe. I only have a passing interest in the Clerks films, which is why the drama elements didn't really work for me. It still passes the time quite easily and it certainly didn't bore me, I just would've preferred it to be a more dedicated comedy.
