Clerks 2 - Page 2

post #31 of 41
Anyways. . .


I actually thought the transfer was great and on par with what i saw in theaters. (maybe a bit better) I am a huge Kevin Smith fan and was a nice addition to the ViewAsker universe and suggest to anyone to give it at least a rental.

I'm sorry, but have you watched the movie? The entire movie takes place in Moobys.

Bingo. Same goes for the grainy look.

GONE are the threads dripping with excitement over the latest and greatest release in terms of PQ. Remember those threads? Serenity, Phantom of the Opera, Aeon Flux, Mission Impossible III, King Kong. Remember?

Any Kevin Smith fan deserves the best transfer.
Clerks II was a no brainer for me.
You can find used copies at FYE for $14.99 on HD DVD.

I've never been a fan of Kevin Smith movies. After watching Mallrats on Sunday I wasn't expecting much from Clerks II. Don't get me wrong, I thought Mallrats was funny--just not great. I just watched Clerks II and loved it. Yes, Rosario Dawson is smokin' hot in HD, but the movie is good, too.

I really enjoyed it and thought "the PQ was pretty damn good" (to quote Graham Johnson)--especially after seeing Mallrats. I was so into the movie afterwards that I watched all the extras on the second disc as well. The hour+ documentary (some parts were in HD) about what led up to Kevin Smith "going back to the well" to do Clerks II, the filming process, the Cannes film festival, etc., was the best reality TV I've seen in a while.

Good PQ, fun movie, lots of extras = no brainer for Kevin Smith fans. Even if you're not into Kevin Smith or you don't know anything about Clerks (which I didn't) it's still a good HD DVD title for the collection IMO.

Yeah. Mallrats was the first HD DVD I purchased where I was underwhelmed by the PQ. Clerks 2 looked significantly better to me.

If you enjoyed Clerks II but have never seen Clerks, I'd suggest that you RUN (don't walk ) to get yourself a copy.

Clerks II is fun enough, but the first movie is a bonefide classic. Still his best work (although Chasing Amy is a close second). It's available in a super-fantastic, 3-disc, 10th anniversary edition:

(Approx. $20 at DeepDiscount if you use one of the 20% off codes.)

Wal-mart has them new for a few cents less now.

Thanks, bboisvert, I'll add the two movies to my Christmas wishlist

Watched this for the millionth time, and I loved it even more. PQ was great as well.
