How do you know you’re not a Star Wars fan? You are in the greatest era of Star Wars content ever fathomed and all you do is find stuff to complain about. Today I want to talk to you about fandom, and not just Star Wars fandom but fandom in general. And I hesitate even using the word fandom because there are a lot of people out there on the Internet who pretend to be fans, but they just aren’t. I mean, they are fanatical, some of these people, but not a good way.

Some of my very favorite films are series films like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and The Lord of the Rings, or other blockbusters like Jurassic Park, or action flicks like The Bourne Identity and Taken, or dramas like Dances With Wolves. I also have many favorite films that just aren’t often mentioned in the zeitgeist, if at all. These are my 10 favorite unsung movies–films you may not have seen, or films that people rarely discuss among their favorites.
