I think we can all agree that life in Louisiana is unique and with Geek'd Con 2023 coming up this weekend, I thought it would be fun to ask about Southern superpowers!

If you could have any Southern superpower, what would it be Shreveport-Bossier City, LA?

I don't know about you, but I'd be able to turn a regular glass of iced tea into the Southern sweet classic with the blink of an eye if I was granted Southern superhero powers! When you think about it, a Southern superhero would have to have novel superpowers that wouldn't be appreciated anywhere else. Let's face it, we march to the beat of a different drummer down here, but I wouldn't change a thing... even if that means that we have to claim Jimbo and his overalls with hidden pockets and contraptions that make him a combination of Mr. Gadget and Batman!

10 Best Places to Eat in Shreveport During Geek'd Con

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.
