Geek Speak

Mile High Magic Documents Denver's Magic: The Gathering Scene -- Game On!

Geeks have a lot of reasons to be excited about this year's Starz Denver Film Festival. There's the sweet Stanley Nights program of horror (one of my picks for the top geek events this month). Among the "normal" films, you'll find a sweet-looking Alan Turing biopic that should be of interest to geeks both for its subject matter (the father of computing!) and its star (Benedict Cumberbatch!). And then there's Mile High Magic, a brand-new documentary about my very favorite geek activity in all the world: Magic: The Gathering.
