The Dallas International Film Festival is running this week and my brother in law usually works the festival chauferring people around.  He sent me a text today about this movie playing tonight and it sounds fun.  I'm gonna go check it out.

Yeah this one has been in production for a couple years.  Should be good....it has the guy who did Super Size Me attached to it.  Hopefully it gives a good idea on how it is to attend San Diego Comic-Con from all perspectives.

It was really good.  If you have been to any Comic or SciFi convention you'll relate to it.  Heck, even if you haven't you'll get a good view of what its like.

It basically follows 5 different people who are going to the Con.  Two guys who want their portfolio's reviewed, 1 girl and her costume team who've built elaborate Mass Effect costumes for the Masquerade competition, one guy who wants to propose to his girlfriend at the Con, and the owner of Mile High Comics for the vendor point of view.

All 5 experiences I found fascinating. 

Especially interesting is the perspective you get from the owner of Mile High Comics and how comics have been pushed to the back now because of Hollywood.  For example, they aren't allowed to use the loading dock because Lucasfilm owns it.

The hoops the guy who wants to propose has to go through to get the ring (at Comic Con) without his girlfriend seeing him is hilarious and very endearing.

Great cameo's & interviews with a host of stars who have always been fans - including Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon (both are Executive Producers).

And of course - it's not a Comic Con movie without Stan the Man Lee.   Grin

If it comes to your area - go see it.  It was a lot of fun.

If you have DirecTv you can now watch this on Pay Per View.  Watch it - it's worth it!

Here's a link to the movie trailer.  It's funny too.
