Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, returns to the Shreveport Convention Center this August. The dates for the show are August 18-20, 2023.

There will be over 200 vendor spaces filled with comic book retailers, handmade crafts, shirts, collectibles, trading cards, vintage toys, artwork, and much more. Vendors from all over the US, and right here in Shreveport-Bossier, will be on-hand all weekend for fans to buy, sell, and trade.

In addition to the vendor opportunities at Geek'd Con, multiple celebrities will be on-hand to sign autographs and take pictures with fans.

Last year, the Geek'd Con celebrity guest lineup was the biggest in the history of Shreveport's comic con. With a cast reunion from the movie Scream leading the way. It seemed like there was never going to be a way to top that lineup. But then 2023 happened.

This year's Geek'd Con lineup isn't just the biggest in the history of Shreveport comic con style events, its one of the biggest in Louisiana history. This year's lineup will rival shows in much larger cities, like Dallas and New Orleans.

Grammy Award winner Estelle will be there, along with her castmates from Steven Universe. Doctor Who star John Barrowman is set to appear as well.

But that's not even the biggest part of the event...there's going to be a massive View Askew reunion. Headlined by the master behind the films, Kevin Smith himself.

This is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime Shreveport event.

To prepare you for it, we put together a list of the Kevin Smith movies you need to binge before the show. We ranked them by their IMDB ratings, so don't get mad at us if your favorite isn't #1, we didn't pick the order.

Highest Rated Kevin Smith Films According To IMDB

For this list, we're looking at movies that Kevin Smith not only directed, but also wrote. That means "Cop Out" and "Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie!" won't be included. We will also be leaving "Killroy Was Here" off the list since it was more anthology than motion picture.

Beyond that, we're ranking these movies by their IMDB ratings. So no personal opinion impacting these rankings.
