I've been to the Comic Con International 5 times over the years andthis movie captures the feel and the heart of the convention eventhough comics become less and less the core of the event each year. Iwon't tell you why....but you will definitely tear up during one of theclimactic scenes. Show this movie to you family and friends so theywill understand why nerds are such good people.....and if you aren't anerd, that's your loss! It's available online so you don't have to benear one of the limited number of theaters showing this movie....Ican't wait for the DVD to be released since this is already my pick fordocumentary of the year!

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock brings his usual care and attention to asubject that, this time, sadly never gets it. From fast food, toterrorist-hunting, to product placement, and now to the largestconvention in North America, Spurlock has proved diversity and that ifyou add the right balance of seriousness and wittiness to any subject,you&#x27;ll be able to create a wonderful documentary. That&#x27;s exactly whathe does with Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan&#x27;s Hope.<br><br>To my knowledge and research, this is the first documentary ever madefocusing on the convention itself. Sure, when it happens in July wehave updates on the web, and VLogs from a number of people, but nothinghas ever been compiled into a full length movie. Spurlock chooses tofollow along four people who are traveling to the convention from allwalks of life, with different goals in mind.<br><br>They are &#x22;The Geek&#x22; (Skip Harvey, a bartender hoping to write a graphicnovel and get feedback on his artwork at the convention), &#x22;TheSolider,&#x22; (Eric Henson, also hoping to become a comic book artist tosupport his wife and kids), &#x22;The Designer,&#x22; (Holly Conrad, a youngwoman in a small, concise town who is designing costumes for a MassEffect reenactment she hopes to put on), and &#x22;The Survivor,&#x22; (ChuckRozanski, a struggling-comic book store owner who is hellbent on makinga huge profit by selling hundreds of comics at the convention.Including the extremely rare, first issue of Marvel&#x27;s &#x22;Red Raven&#x22; whichcan command thousands of dollars online).<br><br>In the mix of chronicling these four strangers, Spurlock also sets hissights on getting opinions and commentary from actors and directors whohave been to the Con themselves. One of them is Kevin Smith, myfavorite director, who attends Comic-Con to provide a monstrous Q&#x26;Asession in the largest room of the convention. Other celebritiesinclude Hostel director Eli Roth, stating that there is absolutelynothing wrong with having a passion for something you liked when youwere young, Knocked Up star Seth Rogen, and comic book king Stan Lee.<br><br>We also follow a man who proposed to his girlfriend at Kevin Smith&#x27;spanel last year at Comic-Con, as well as seeing a toy collector who isdetermined to acquire another entry in his prized collection, much tothe dismay of his wife.<br><br>These people are genial, optimistic, and effortlessly likable. Theyaren&#x27;t wallflowers, who sit back and expect to be taken under the wingimmediately without contributing some amount of effort. They take thesteps necessary in order to achieve their big goals. Comic book storeowner Chuck seems to be the odd-man out when stating this, but if youlook at his persistency, continuing to have faith in the comic bookcommunity and constantly spending money to run his store, he is trulyfighting just as hard as the other subjects in the film. He already hashis dream, he&#x27;s just fighting to keep it.<br><br>The one downside with the documentary is Spurlock, himself, hasvirtually no part in the film whatsoever. This is quite a shame, seeingas we can see just by the way he captures the footage and edits ittogether (not to mention, last year, he wrote a book about theconvention with the same title as the film) that he has a true love forthe Con and the crowd it draws. Why doesn&#x27;t he ever interact with thefour subjects or the crowd themselves? It&#x27;s a bummer because on top ofhim already remaining silent, it almost seems he doesn&#x27;t have anyquestions for the people, when we already know that is highly unlikely.Spurlock seems to sit back and watch the fun happen, without evergetting involved or enjoying it for himself.<br><br>I would still call Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan&#x27;s Hope a documentarythat needed to be made. As I&#x27;ve grown older, I&#x27;ve found it important tolook at all walks of life with an open mind, and to see documentariesfurther illustrate that idea is wonderful. This is definitely aneclectic and ambitious film, not only documenting an extremely popularconvention, but the kinds of people you&#x27;ll find there. From what Ihear, that&#x27;s half the fun of going.<br><br>Starring: Skip Harvey, Eric Henson, Holly Conrad, Chuck Rozanski, KevinSmith, Seth Rogen, Eli Roth, and Stan Lee. Directed by: MorganSpurlock.

Review: This is a great documentary about the Comic-Con event whichbring all types of people together, all for the love of the comic bookheroes and games. You really do see how important this comic event istoo people and how seriously it is taken. You get to see interviewswith the great Stan Lee and actors like Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith. AsI&#x27;m not that big into comics, I didn&#x27;t know a lot of the other peoplewho are famous in that world, but you can see that they take there artseriously and that the convention really opens doors for people whowant to make it in that business. You also get to follow a couple of upand coming artists who try and sell themselves at the convention and aguy who is trying to sell some rare comics. In all, it&#x27;s a greatinsight into a world that I never new existed. Great Watch!<br><br>Round-Up: This film did make me want to go to the event, just for theexperience and the stars that preview there movies. From the costumesto the various items that are on sale, there is something for everyone,but it&#x27;s mainly for comic fanatics. I couldn&#x27;t believe that a man wastrying to sell a rare comic for $500,000. Anyway, the director donewell with mixing up the documentary with a mixture of elements. From amarriage proposal to a girl trying to win a competition with hercostumes, it really is one of those movies were you wish you was there.Judging by the amount of money that the comic book hero movies aremaking nowadays, it obvious that were never too old for a super herosaving the world.<br><br>Budget: $1.5million Worldwide Gross: $35,000 (Deserved More!)<br><br>I recommend this documentary to people who are into there comic bookheroes and video games. 6/10
