Dogma 19 Nov 99

Daring, but not as daring as I'd hoped. Funny, but not as funny as I'd hoped. Like all Kevin Smith films, it's very chatty, and the voices aren't all that distinct. Unlike his other films, the chattiness this time has to compete with some action and plot. It's not a great mix. Funniest to Catholic Kevin Smith fans - you'll think my grade is criminally low. C+

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
