The Top 25 Hipster Movies

Actually caring whether a movie should be considered hipster or not is decidedly un-hipster (caring is not cool), but the minus hipster points will quickly be replaced by +1's when you realize how many of these (generally excellent) films are in your collection. For your hipster ranking pleasure:

0-5: Better go to Urban Outfitters and buy a stick-on mustache set if you want people to think you don't care

6-10: You're getting there, but maybe take the bus somewhere so you can talk to a fellow passenger about how you have a car but are being green today

11-15: You're probably squeezing into skinny jeans as you read this list, so try not to lose circulation before you can add more of these movies to your collection. And maybe make sure you don't listen to anything but African tribal music for the rest of the day

16-20: Oh man, you are approaching critical hipster collector status. Are you in the middle of participating in a facial hair competition? Are you wearing more than one piece of clothing with chevrons on it? Are you down to your last American Spirit? I bet you are...

21-25: Don't lie, if you have more than 20 of the movies on this list, you're drinking a brown bag PBR in a thrift store and there's a flip phone in your pocket that won't load this page. Return to seeing a band that you'll brag no one has ever heard of and try to impress that girl next to you by telling her how you knew about Silversun Pickups before they sold out

Self disclosure: I own, like, 19 of these movies. And I'm wearing a sweater from the Gap.
