They're a funny duo and offered some insight into working with Johnny Depp on the film, as well as Kevin Smith's working relationship with marijuana, which probably also aided in explaining the movie itself.
I admire Smith's impulse to expand his film-making palette and was a fan of his Red State. Tusk, however, may only be for Smith completists. It was so disheartening that I bailed a little early in order to make a screening of The Reach.
Walking With Dinosaurs, a 3D movie whose title suggests spending a day with the Republican leadership, is like a more expensive Land Before Time: bad writing, corny jokes and a weak (and familiar) plot.
When you stay at a film festival for more than three or four days, the law of diminishing returns usually catches up with you. Yet here I was on my seventh day of movie-going at the Dubai International Film Festival -- my last day here.
My absolute favorite moment of the festival was while shooting the hilarious Jason Schwartzman. He got up from the set and slowly looked around for a prop while saying, "I'll know it when I see it," and proceeded to go over to my paint supplies.
