SHOWNOTES: Welcome to 2019, Collateral Cinephiles! On our first episode of the New Year, we analyze the 2009 love letter to Star Wars, its fandom, and all fandoms in general: Fanboys, directed by Kyle Newman and starring Kristen Bell, Sam Huntington, Dan Fogler, Chris Marquette and Jay Baruchel. We truly enjoyed this cult comedy brought to the podcast by Robert, and we discussed the hilarious screenplay, true-to-life performances, amazing cameos by some of the best in nerd culture, the absolute care the movie shows in its portrayal of nerds and fandom, the many references to Star Wars and Star Trek, and how that magical time before the prequels were released was captured by the filmmakers. We also discuss Star Wars fandom in its current iteration, how its toxicity has increased in the decades since, and wherer the fandom and all other fandoms in general. So grab your lightsabers, put on your favorite character's cosplay, and join Collateral Cinema's celebration of this often overlooked work!
