I can’t STAND Morgan Spurlock. I’d rather read a Spawn comic than put money in his pocket.

Yay! I get to see this film next weekend at True/False Film Fest ( http://www.truefalse.org ) next weekend!

What question would you ask the director Morgan Spurlock (other than Rich Yan!)?

I would ask what he did to piss off Rich Yan so much. Kidding.

This trailer looks great and I can’t wait to see this. I am curious why Chuck from Mile High Comics was not featured in the trailer, since I understood from his newsletters that he was a big part of the final version of the movie.

I would totally watch this. I think Spurlock is a good documentarian and I have enjoyed what I have seen.

When I saw Spurlock passing out from eating at McDonalds in “Super Size Me” I thought, “Couldn’t we have gotten a man to try this?” Guys a total vag and then he was taking credit when McDonalds got rid of the super size fries. Great! Now I have to order a large and a small fries or didn’t you see that coming you colossal buttinsky!?

@Rich Yan: If you are sucking down that many french fries, then you’ve got bigger problems than a director of documentaries. Not trying to tell you how to run your life, but you may want to examine some aspects of it.

Hey guys, just want to let everyone know that there is more info on the movie and tour dates at comicconmovie.com and on twitter @comicconmovie. Thanks!
