Shutter Island finally arrives and Kevin Smith fights Southwest

Shutter Island was suppose to come out last fall. But it is time for some thrills from Martin Scorsese. This weekend is the release of Shutter Island. He casted his good friend Leonard Dicaprio for the films lead. Shutter Island was originally a book which was released in 2003 by author Dennis Lahane. He has seen his other work Mystic River which was adapted into another great film. So with Martin Scorsese adapting this book, we can only imagine what he has in store for us. Will these 2 have the success of their last film The Departed? We shall see....

Shutter Island takes place in 1954, two U.S. marshals investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane on an island in Massachusetts. They run into trouble when they are deceived by the hospital's chief administrator, a hurricane hits, and all hell breaks loose.

Kevin Smith VS. Southwest Airlines

So if you haven't heard this week. Famed director Kevin Smith of such films like Clerks
, Chasing Amy and Cop Out. Was kicked off a Southwest flight this past week. For being TOO FAT! But Smith has been letting everyone know he is NOT TOO FAT. Southwest has apologized to Smith but he has put a challenge up to Southwest.

I guess Kevin Smiths twitter challenge is off now: "Hey @SouthwestAir: you bring that same row of seats to the DailyShow, and I'll sit in 'em for all to see on TV," he tweeted. "If I don't fit, I'll donate $10k to charity of your choice. But when I do (& buckle the belt as well)? 1) You admit you lied. 2) Change your policy, or at least re-train your staff to be a lot more human & a lot less corporate when they pull a poor girl off the plane & shame her."

He stated on his website that he is over the whole Southwestgate! Check it out here to hear him try and bring an end to this: http://silentbobspeaks.com/?p=393
