I always gave Kevin Smith the benefit of the doubt. Though, I'm not exactly quite sure why, considering I don't particularly enjoy his films. Without giving it too much thought before, I think, perception probably played a part; perception that Smith was so "indie cool" that I obviously was too square if I didn't get the joke.

Now, forced to really give it some thought after Smith's recent Twitter tirade, threatening to ban media from screening his new films, I'm left confused at my past response. I've always just perceived him as a smart filmmaker. And it's not that I'm having a sudden catharsis, realizing I've never been a fan of Smith's films -- I've always kind of known that -- I'm more curious to why I've been so afraid to admit this before.
