Kevin Smith isn't much of an interviewer, but this is a really nice set of documentaries.
Visually it's not going to blow you away. Much of it is just Stan Lee and Kevin Smith talking, but if you're at all interested in Marvel movies or comics, this is a really interesting conversation to be sitting in on. A lot of really fascinating stories and tidbits are shared. If you're a super die-hard maybe the stories are old hat, but if you're a fan, like me, who hasn't crossed over into the "die-hard" world, then it's really enjoyable.
Stan Lee is just a big kid in a Hugh Hefner-looking body, but what a Great Storyteller!!
Jovial, thotful, nuanced, insightful & full of life - worth the time to get to know someone like Stan - so down to earth and interesting.
Kevin Smith knows his subject well, but barely gets a word in edge-wise, not wanting to interrupt the flow of insight and fantasy pouring out.
Sorry, no actual action heroes or cliffhangers here - just an imaginative, brilliant man on display with an interesting view on life which I found absolutely fascinating.
If you like comics in any sense, you will appreciate this interview.
If you also like to watch a movie with the director's commentary, you will be in your glory here.
Wanna know what his wife is like?
She's here too. A pixie-muse whom you fall in love with too.
Wanna see where he lives?
Got it. See an action figure someone made of Stan - hilarious.
There's even an insightful poem about life on earth thru the eyes of Stan in the dvd extras that he wrote in the 60's called God Woke.
Kevin wisely holds back to watch a word-craftsman work his miracles, and at the end of the day gets to call this man a friend.
I LOVED this, and only wanted to see more.
4.5 out of 5 action figures
