And yeah, some fans can be douchey. But I'm still a fan and I can say that there a lot who aren't that way at all. I guess maybe the most obvious ones can be.
If you ever do watch Red State, though, you will see growth there. It's not a typical Kevin Smith movie. In fact, except for a few flourishes like the monologue at the end, it doesn't feel like one at all. I'd be interested to see what people who don't like most of his movies thing. It's on VOD starting this Labor Day for 6 weeks.
