Star Trek and 'Trekkies'


I'm indifferent to the fact that a new Star Trek movie is coming out- even though early reviews are glowing. I've never understood all the hype surrounding the 'Trek' phenomenon. So my review of the film will likely come out once all the lineups have gone down the drain and all the hype has been diminished.

For my money, no recent Star Trek movie has come close to the fun I had watching Roger Nygard's documentary Trekkies. A hilarious account of its obsessed fans and their even wackier obsessions. There's something very perverse about laughing at others- but the film is sweet natured and oddly neutral in its depiction of these super fans. It represents the end of civilization through the eyes of dozens upon dozens of Trekkies.
