Storyline

A film about the world's most dedicated Star Wars fans. From lightsaber wielding martial arts academies to a filmmaker who built the world's only life-size Millennium Falcon, from a Monster Garage-esque sculptor whose professional livelihood is building custom lightsabers to metal-bikini wearing dancers who embody Slave Leia, the film offers viewers a rare glimpse into rabid fans' personal and professional self expression that borders on obsession.

A little bit better than the usual obsessed fan documentary.
22 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

As I watched this documentary about obsessed Star Wars fans, I kept thinking back to the hilarious William Shatner skit on "Saturday Night Live" where he was addressing a Trek convention and he told them to 'get a life'! This is exactly what I thought about many of these Star Wars nuts. Much of it looked like harmless fun, but some of these folks seemed a bit scary--as if they thought the films might just be real! However, this sort of film addiction makes for fascinating viewing from a psychological/sociological point of view (though who am I to talk--I've done over 15,000 reviews on IMDb!).

I've actually watched several documentaries about Star Wars and Star Wars fans and some of them were great and several were pretty much a waste of time. The great ones looked for patterns or deeper meaning to the passion. These films also showed fans who had fun and the fans who lost all perspective and it's not fun any more--as it's become a sickness. And, the bad documentaries are ones that have no critical analysis and just say that these are ALL healthy and normal folks (such as in "Trekkies"). Well, "Jedi Junkies" falls in the former category. Although most of it is devoted to folks just having silly fun, a bit of the documentary is about obsession--and features a couple psychotherapists discussing this. I was particularly impressed with the die-hard obsessed collectors who was imploring folks NOT to do what he's done, as he's recognizing that it's no longer fun but it controls his life.

Overall, a reasonably balanced and interesting show. Certainly NOT a must-see, though I loved seeing the guys who made the Chad Vader films--they are hilarious (whether you are a Star Wars fan or not).
