| Secret Origin The Story of DC Comics: Solid indepth documentary
I was a comic book kid, from Marvel to DC to obscure companies I can't remember the name of, I was one of those kids who grew up with these superhero tales and have watched them evolve over the years.

Secret Origin is a feature length documentary that looks back on DC's storied past from humble beginnings to the monster it has become today.

It looks at the fluctuations in comic book popularity, the trends that molded it and the every increasing popularity of it's most popular characters such as Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman.

This is a fantastic little documentary that I would say is a must for comic book fans and one of those films that may well prove enlightening even to those who aren't.

Personally I think it was a bit short, it was as if it were taking you on a tour of a wondrous place but repeatedly shooeing you into the next room before you were done. Another 30-60 minutes would have done wonders to really tell the story properly.

Well constructed full of great interviews and background nuggets that I found very entertaining, good job.

The Good:

Ryan Reynolds narration

Very insightful stuff

The Bad:

Too short

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Watchmen was inspired by Tory Thatcher Britain
