Because no one does excessive cursing, stoner humor, and long commentaries that leave the mark of a good dick slap on society like Kevin Smith. From creating the unforgettable duo Jay and Silent Bob to the retelling of the apocalypse in Dogma (1999) to giving Ben Affleck a career, Kevin Smith has really proved just how badass he is again and again. And just when you think it couldn't get any better, his new film coming out in March, Red State (2011), the horror film based off the gay-bashing Westboro Baptist Church, gives us a whole new and exciting side of Kevin Smith. Indeed, he is really the gift that just keeps giving.
Personal Quote: "There's something to be said for failing. It's not the failure you feel, it's the failure that people project when something disappoints. You're back to ground zero, where there's no expectations, and that's where I like to be. People like to set the bar high. I like to put the bar on the ground and barely step over it. I like to keep the expectations really low. After something like 'Mallrats' or 'Jersey Girl,' the expectations are in the toilet. People are like, 'He's over, he's done.' So it's easier to be, like, 'Ta-da, I'm not.' It's a much more comfortable place to work from. When you have an escalating career, and every time you have to outdo yourself, I couldn't handle that kind of pressure. But having to outdo 'Jersey Girl'? Not very difficult."
Best Films: Clerks (1994) for still being extraordinary even as his first movie on a penny budget, Dogma (1999) for its complete and utterly crazy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) for Jay and Silent Bob, and Clerks II (2006), just for giving the world pillow pants.
Best Moment: Star Wars PWNS Lord Of The Rings. Forever.
