Talking about Kevin Smith's Movie TUSK.


By - Steve Mezo


Just saw Kevin Smith's new movie "TUSK" with my mom today!

We all know the story of how Kevin came up with the idea for the movie's story on a Smoddcast, and with a very strong vote of #WalrusYes he went and made it. But he made something so much more.

I'll be the first to admit that I did a big old eye roll when I first found about it and yelled "Great so we have to wait even longer for CLERKS III!!!" And then yelled "Step away from the bong Lunchbox, this Misery and Island of Dr. Moreau mash up is going to suck!"
And boy did I ever eat those words with a second helping...

Kevin just about did a theatrical version of "Hey here's a really funny joke!" Then as your laughing he punches you dead in the face and starts laughing at your shocked reaction, then goes "Hey come on here's the rest of the joke!" but now you're unsure if you should keep laughing at the humor of the joke and without warning he hits you again! 
And I mean this in a huge complimentary way.

It had a great story and there is such a heart breaking reasoning behind Howard Howe's doings.   

I have always love Michael Parks performances in his roles and Justin Long as "Not-See Podcaster" Wallace Bryton, had me leaving my Jaded seen it all self at the door. 

The effects were all latex, fake blood and greasepaint but I didn't care, because Michael Parks and Justin Long had me in that lonely house in Canada right there with them the whole time!  

There's so much more I want to say about it and maybe a year down the road I will. But right now I just want to tell everyone to find the theaters that are showing it and buy a ticket for something that is more than worth the watch!
