‘Randal’s Monday’ Review (PC)

13 November 2014 8:14 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If there is one thing that geeks like it’s a reference to their favourite game, television show or film.  Randal’s Monday is a new Point & Click adventure game that is full of them, everywhere you look you will see an Easter egg trying to get your attention.  Taking an old fashioned style to the adventure game it isn’t exactly one that fits the Telltale Games model of being overly emotional about everything, this is one that looks for laughs and when Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes are in it, fans of Clerks start to take notice.

Jeff Anderson voices the part of Randal Hicks, a man very much like his Clerks character and Mewes is of course, Jay.  Silent Bob does make an appearance too but is not voiced by Kevin Smith (and yes, Bob does provide his sage like advice).

Back to the game though, Randal »

They briefly appeared in walrus horror Tusk earlier this year, and now Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp are set to take centre stage in spinoff pic, Yoga Hosers.  The two 15-year olds, daughters of Tusk‘s Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp, will both reprise their convenience store clerk roles for the upcoming movie. The amusingly-named duo, Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith), are showcased here in the first image from the upcoming film.

The pic has arrived courtesy of THR, who landed the scoop, and shows the two teens in character behind a store counter. In the movie, written and directed by Smith, the pair of Colleens enlist the help of Johnny Depp’s Quebec police officer to battle a long-dormant evil. For a more in-depth look at the plot, here’s a brief synopsis:

'Clerks 3' to Shoot in June; Jay and Silent Bob Will Return

29 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During Kevin Smith's latest podcast Randal Reflects, the filmmaker revealed that his long-awaited sequel Clerks III will start production this coming June, while he offered new details alongside Jeff Anderson, who will reprise his role as Randall.

We reported last month that the sequel finally has financing locked down, thanks to the success of Kevin Smith's new thriller Tusk. Just last February, though, the filmmaker said he planned on telling this story as a book or a Broadway play. When asked about his thoughts on Clerks becoming a stage show, Jeff Anderson claims that Kevin Smith wanted him to do the play so he could win a Tony Award.

"Who the f*ck is Tony? Why do I want him?!? There was a lot of things going around. I was hearing stuff. It's gonna be a play . . . last I heard it was gonna be a diorama. The only »

Video Game Preview – Randal’s Monday

20 October 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dave Davies previews the new point and click adventure Randal’s Monday…

Randal’s Monday should be a Kevin Smith fan’s dream, a nerdy, geek-fest of a point and click adventure (arguably the nerdiest of genres), the perfect way to celebrate 20 years since the release of Clerks. However, the preview of Nexus Games Studios’ latest adventure sadly appears to over geek the pudding.

Playing as the titular hero, voiced by everyone’s favourite Video Store slacker himself Jeff Anderson, the game plunges you into a Groundhog Day-esque storyline revolving around your kleptomania, your best friend’s suicide and a golden ring which holds power over those who possess it.

It’s clear from the outset that Mr Smith’s involvement has been little more than providing the original character (a different Randal to the Randal here) and allowing a “cameo” from himself and Jason Mewes. The dialogue, although »

Jason Mewes Lends His Voice To Randal’s Monday

17 October 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nexus Game Studios and Daedalic Entertainment have confirmed that Jason Mewes, of Jay and Silent Bob glory, will be lending his distinct vocal touch to the upcoming point and click adventure game Randal’s Monday.

Mewes will be making a cameo appearance as Jay from the Clerks films alongside his hetero life mate Silent Bob. The duo are set to make appearances throughout Randal’s Monday, hanging out in back alleys and discussing things from the Clerks movies that generated their fame.

Nexus Game Studios Lead Producer Enric Costa commented on the team’s excitement over landing Mewes for the game.

“We are over the moon now also having Jason on board. It’s a real dream come true. Our homage to Clerks and classic adventure games now gets support not only from one big star of the American Independent Cinema, but from two. That’s more than we ever hoped for. »

Kevin Smith Gets 'Clerks 3' Funded Thanks to 'Tusk'

29 September 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kevin Smith's Tusk hasn't exactly been setting the box office on fire, pulling in just over $1 million from its first two weekends in limited release. Despite this lackluster performance, Smith has revealed that Tusk actually helped him land financing for Clerks III.

Last year, during one of his many Hollywood Babble-On podcasts, Kevin Smith explained how he was desperately trying to raise money for Clerks III so that he could release the sequel in 2014 to coincide with the original Clerks' 20th Anniversary. That obviously didn't happen, with the director moving onto the horrors of Tusk, about a man who is slowly and painfully transformed into a walrus.

In a more recent interview, the director explains how Tusk actually lead to Clerks III finally getting funded:

"Tusk was the absolute bridge to Clerks III. Because of Tusk I got my financing for Clerks III. A year and change »

Interview: Producer Brett Murray talks Shooting Clerks

24 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zachary Leeman chats with Brett Murray, producer of Shooting Clerks

Tusk mastermind Kevin Smith started his days in a convenience store in New Jersey called Quick Stop. It was his time behind the counter there that inspired his 1994 film Clerks.

The movie was made for peanuts (around $27,000) by Smith and his friends without the promise of distribution or ever getting an audience. However, Smith did find that audience and supporters in Miramax and super producer Harvey Weinstein who introduced the movie to the world.

Now Smith and the independent inspirational behind the scenes story behind Clerks have inspired countless people and nabbed plenty of fans.

Perhaps proving themselves to have taken the inspirational story in a very direct but motivating fashion, director Christopher Downie and producer Brett Murray and others are creating the behind the scenes story of Clerks as Shooting Clerks and they are doing it with the same »

Devil’s Tower (2014) Movie Review

12 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Brit horror “Devil’s Tower” might not have the most original name or premise, revolving around sinister goings on in a shabby housing estate tower block, though it does at least have a pretty interesting cast, led by actress Roxanne Pallett, best known for her work on popular UK countryside soap “Emmerdale” and Jason Mewes of “Jay and Silent Bob” fame. Directed by Owen Tooth and written by Adam J. Marsh, the film follows the recent trend of combining urban decay and grounded anxieties with the supernatural, throwing in some oddball comedy and nudity for good measure. The tower in question is Albion Court, a rundown block long past any former glory it might once have had, now home to squatters and drug dealers, and where two residents were recently found dead in mysterious circumstances. Roxanne Pallett plays Sarah, a young woman thrown out of her home by her thoroughly »

The Sixth Sense Kid Turns Nazi for Yoga Hosers

12 September 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'Yoga Hosers' marks the second installment in filmmaker Kevin Smith's new 'True North Trilogy'. His immediate follow-up to his twisted body horror 'Tusk', in cinemas next Friday, the movie teams up two 15 year old girls (played by Kev's daughter Harley Quinn and Johnny Depp's little 'un Lily-Rose Melody Depp) with an old hunter who join forces to help defeat an ancient evil presence. And of all the on-set images we thought we'd get a glimpse at during production we were not expecting to see Haley Joel Osment (below) in character as a Nazi politician. Osment returns alongside many of his 'Tusk' cast mates including Justin Long, Michael Parks and the sexy Genesis Rodriguez. 'Yoga Hosers' also stars Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach, Harley Morenstein, Natasha Lyonne, Tyler Posey, Adam Brody, Austin Butler, Jason Mewes, Tony Hale ('Veep'), Stan Lee »
