List RulesFeature films and documentaries about hobbies, interests, fandom, collectors, collecting, etc

A list of all the best movies about hobbies and movies about interests and obsessions, with tralilers and/or movie posters. This list includes both documentaries about hobbies and feature films about the often-nerdy passions and interests of collectors and their collections, many of which are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This hobbies and interests movie list includes data on the cast, year, director and more for each film. This list is also the best hobbies and interests movies of all time, as it is voted on by fans of the films, and ordered from best to worst. Vote for your favorite movies to see them graduate to the top of the list. Some of the hobbies and obsessions featured in films on this list include video games, comic books, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, and even juggling. 

If we missed any hobbies and interests movies on this list, please add them to the list yourself, as this is an open list which means you can add any movies whenever you like (choices are subject to moderation). This list below has movies like Trekkies and The King of Kong. Many of these movies about collections, passions, hobbyists, and fandoms are indie films, and this is a rather broad topic, so please help us out and add more names to this list and vote on any that you've seen. 

Whether you want to watch these hobby movies on DVD, Blu-ray or streaming, this is a list of good movies about collections and obsessions, ordered from best to worst - and there are some bad ones to be sure, so if you've seen a stinker, give it the downvote and help your fellow man out!
