I don’t know how long the online film community has been patting themselves on the back over the current state of pop culture. It feels like a god damned eternity. Countless pieces being written about how geek friendly fare like Star Wars & Comic Book Movies have taken over the collective cinematic consciousness. Whether it be in the form of television shows or blockbuster cinema, the geeks have seemingly inherited the earth. For better or worse.
This topic came up again this week with another swim through the chum bucket of nostalgia courtesy of Drew McWeeney. His HitFix column focused on the agitated state of the geek community. That in spite of the geeks winning the pop culture war and being delivered and endless stream of sci-fi and comic book content that they still seem perpetually displeased. Does this really surprise anyone?
