Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

Today at Comic Con was Star Wars day. It is intense, fanboy heaven, however you don’t have to be well versed in Star Wars lore to enjoy the spectacle.  I have seen all six movies, some of them several times, but I don’t know a Zygerrian from a Zelosian.   I arrived at Comic Con this morning with two children who have never seen the film, mind you.  That didn’t stop the older one from developing a deep and profound connection with Darth Vader, a preoccupation that started a year ago, possibly from last year’s exposure to Star Wars day at Comic Con.  If these kids can enjoy Star Wars day without ever having seen the movie, imagine what Star Wars day is like for fans.
