Blaxploitation or not, even Post-Obama, if released / made today it would go down like a cup of cold sick.
Kevin Smith has released a smirk inducing teaser for his new film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Doesn’t really give much away in terms of film content but the Kevin Smith trademark potty mouth dialogue-heavy style is still evident. Which is always a good thing. : )
