Don't be fooled by the Slave Leia on the front of the box.
JediReview
Much ado has been made about what truly establishes the psychological difference between fandom and obsession, but methinks the line has been blurred over the years.
E. Lee Zimmerman
Even the most die hard Star Wars fans will find this documentary to be a waste of time.

I loved this movie. It's a very funny and very sexy look at extreme Star Wars fans.

The film covers an entire gambit of Star Wars fans including a guy who built a life size Millenium Falcon in his backyard. (There's a good story behind why he did and what happened to the space ship.) Film also shows this group called the NY Jedi - who are light saber experts. Also shown are toy collectors and people who make Star Wars fan films.

And if you're interested in women who dress up like Princess Leia in her metal bikini - aka "Slave Leia" you will not be disapointed.

A few actors from the Star Wars films are interviewed. That includes Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Ray Park (Darth Maul) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett).

Also interviewed is Olivia Munn from Attack of the Show.

I'm glad that this film doesn't make fun of Star Wars fans. Yes, it shows that some fans might take it too far....(one guy doesn't have a bed because he bought to many toys.) But the film really celebrates the fans.

In short... Very funny. Very sexy. Very entertaining.

"Jedi Junkies" is an extraordinary film. It's smart, knowing, lively, sympathetic, and besides being great fun it's an eye-opening introduction to some far-out super-dedicated Star War fans. I've watched it a couple of times with fascination and admiration. Though it's likely to be most appreciated by people (unlike me) who are seriously into the Star Wars saga, it's really a film for everyone who is curious about extraordinarily passionate people, even if some of them sometimes seem to be over the edge. Mark Edlitz is, I believe, a singularly talented and imaginative filmmaker: he's an artist who deeply understands, admires, and in his smart and entertaining film celebrates passionate people.

As an inveterate but perhaps fading Star Wars fan I picked up this movie because...it was cheap and looked amusing. It follows a number of stories, including a fellow who made a life-size Millenium Falcon in his back yard, the NY Jedi folks who do lightsaber combat as a form of choreographed martial arts, the "Slave Leia" phenomenon dramatized on the disc cover, and a fellow who creates custom Star Wars figures. Along the way we're treated to interviews from the prominently credited Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Ray Park (Darth Maul), and Olivia Munn, along with Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett).

This all sounds good on paper, but it's less than the sum of its parts. The interviews with everyone but Olivia Munn were done with the various interviewees at their signing tables at cons, and although all are interesting, there's not a lot of interview content in the film. The various pieces of the film are just that - there's no story arc, just a number of documentary short subject pieces welded together. I'm a bit bewildered at the praise for the Slave Leia segment; there's a lot of eye candy, but the interviews with the women who participated in this segment - particularly with one given a lot of screen time - are robotic and content-free. An investigation of the cultural phenomenon and how it represents both a repudiation and a embrace of certain gender roles prevalent in the world would be interesting. This is not that.

So yeah...it just didn't work for me, even though I wanted to love it. I didn't expect an Oscar contender, but I expected a somewhat better put-together film.

I see that there are already 15 reviews of this film posted before me - nearly all from the Amazon Instant streaming version. This review is of the physical DVD released by New Video.

I'll start off by saying that I'm not a Star Wars "groupie" - In fact I remember seeing the original film and maybe , I'm not even sure , the first sequel. But I do like pop culture documentaries and I am a collector of other "collectibles" - my case Edison memorabilia - so I know how a collection can take over your house and home. (And no, at least not to my knowledge are there conventions where members dress up like Thomas Edison - though I hear Mr. Peanut collectors do. _

While not a great film, I did enjoy watching much of this DVD. The section on making one of the "fan films" just seemed to drag a bit. There are no real "celebrities" to speak of - at least from the first SW film, except the guy who played Chewbacca being interviewed at a fan fair. Three things peaked my interest - though there may be others that will peak yours. First was Roberto Williams, a well spoken "collector and customizer". He explains the various stages that SW toys were released and speaks rationally as to why he bought multiple copies of certain toy models as investments. The next was the collector who explained how collection can be an obsession and take over your life and household. There is a female "psychologist who explains how this can a be a problem.) This section is relevant to ANY collectible and any collector will relate to that. The third was the section on the You Tube "seriel" "Chad Vader" about Darth Vader's younger brother (Chad) being a grocery store manager.
