FUCKING AWESOME! I don't know exactly why but I had goosebumps and ugly cried almost the hole 88 minutes. Oh, so much brain crushs here! SOS! Can we have one doc per year? "I wanna die and go to comic-con."
A delightful homage to one of the biggest conventions (probably THE biggest) in the world. Only problem I could find was that Spurlock doesn't have any speaking part. It's clear that he loves the Con (he has written a book on it), but it seems a bit strange that he doesn't have anything to say. Still, it's definitely worth watching, and the four people it follows are definitely very likable.
Not to say that i don't like morgan Spurlock or his personality appearing in his documentries. But i truly applaud him for letting the subjects speak for themselves and explain why thye are obsessed and why they are fans of certain things. Which truly illustrates more then he could try to get out of them. The beauty and the agony of fandom.
