Synopsis
The two-part Stan Lee's Mutants, Monsters, and Marvels is basically an intimate discussion with filmmaker Kevin Smith interviewing legendary artist Stan Lee about the last 40 years of Marvel comics. Released on video a few days before the feature-length Spider-Man movie hit theatres, this documentary from Columbia TriStar Home Video investigates the history of the famous web-slinger as well as other Marvel superheroes. In the part one, "Creating Spider-Man," Stan Lee talks about getting the original idea, collaborating with Steve Ditko, developing side characters, and the eventual TV and film adaptations. Part two, "Here Come the Heroes," explores his other creations, including the birth of the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, and the X-Men. Both parts are presented in a widescreen transfer with Dolby Digital Stereo sound. This disc includes Stan Lee's original poem God Woke, and a previously unreleased Fantastic Four short. Extra features include a two-minute behind-the-scenes featurette; an interview with the artist's wife, Joan Lee; and home movie footage. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

I'm not sure how interesting this would be to anybody who does not care for comic books, but this documentary/biography, which is basically a sit down interview with Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, etc.) interviewing Stan Lee, is something I found fairly fascinating.

Stan Lee is one of the guys who created Marvel comics, home of the X-men, Spider Man, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, etc.

It is really fascinating to see Stan's take on what all happened. The history of Marvel comics is told through Stan Lee's answers to Kevin Smith's very informed questions, you can feel the love for the craft and medium come through in the interview and overall, although it's just two guys talking in a comic shop, you can, at times, entirely visualize what it must have been like to be at ground zero for a pioneering art form that is still going strong today.

No matter what you think of eithers art too, they are both interesting folks, recommended for any fan of the genre or the movies inspired by the genre.
