Five Favorite Films

Five Favorite Films with Jason Mewes

by | February 26, 2013 | Comments

You know him most famously as the “Jay” in “Jay and Silent Bob,” the odd couple that frequently pops up in Kevin Smith’s films (Smith himself plays Silent Bob), but Jason Mewes has managed to stay quite busy outside of his collaborations with his longtime friend (which currently includes a weekly podcast). His latest role comes in noobz, a wacky road trip comedy that pokes fun at the world of competitive gaming. Mewes recently stopped by the RT office for a guest spot on our Rotten Toatoes radio show and stayed a bit longer to offer us his Five Favorite Films, so without further ado, here they are!


Krush Groove (Michael Schultz, 1985; N/A Tomatometer)



Krush Groove is awesome because it has all the old hip-hop people that I like. You know, LL Cool J, Run-DMC, who I love, Fat Boys, Sheila E. One of my favorite scenes in any movie is in that movie when Run comes out and he’s like “We have a whole lot of superstars…” It just gives me goosebumps when I watch it.

House Party (Reginald Hudlin, 1990; 96% Tomatometer)



House Party is a favorite of mine because Kevin and I, when we first started hanging out actually, we started watching that movie. I watched it with him, he sort of introduced me to it. It has Martin Lawrence who’s amazing, and some of my favorite quotes are from that movie. That whole house party dance with Kid n Play where they do the kicking and dancing, me and my buddies used to go to parties and try to do that and it’s obnoxious.

Serenity (Joss Whedon, 2005; 82% Tomatometer)



Firefly or Serenity (the movie)… that was a really good show. I was really into Buffy and Angel, and when I was done watching them I was really bummed about it being over, and I’m like “I can’t believe I’ve watched them all, what’s next?” My buddy said “Hey, the guy who created that, Joss Whedon, also created a different show, called Firefly.” So I watched that and there were only a few episodes, one season, but they made the movie, which was amazing. I’m just super into sci-fi.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (Henry Selick, 1993; 96% Tomatometer)



I just really dug the whole thing, and it’s something… I don’t if I can explain it, except for Jack Skellington [Jason stars singing] “What’s this? What’s this?” The singing and the cool horror, it was just a different movie for me.

Star Wars (George Lucas, 1977; 93% Tomatometer)



I’m sure a lot of people say this one. As a kid, the toys, the action figures, being able to watch the three movies, and being able to watch them over and over, and then so many years later, they came out with the new ones. And now they going to make more. It was a big movie growing up. As a kid, again, the toys — I go back and watch some of those old commercials for [putting on his announcer voice] “The Millennium Falcon!” it just gives me goosebumps and reminds me of my childhood. Growing up, I didn’t get any of the toys; my family couldn’t afford to buy them. But what was awesome was my friend, he had two brothers, and they all wanted the same Star Wars toys, so their parents would get them three TIE fighters, or three Death Star sets. So on Christmas, I’d open up my presents, run to my friend’s house, and they would get every single Star Wars thing, and I could play with them. And then they got into GI Joe, and they had the big hovercraft, and the space shuttle, it was awesome. Anyway, the combination of the movies and the toys makes it a classic for me.


Noobz is currently available on DVD.
