Daniel Joslyn "Geek films dominated the box office in 2012, but that does not tell the whole story. Some movies lived up to impossible expectations. Others bombed as expected. Some movies that nobody had heard of in 2011 turned out to be amazing, while other movies that had a huge build-up were mostly greeted with disappointment. It’s hard to pick out one overarching story but I would say it was this – in an increasingly fragmented world, geeks are the last bastion of the collective experience."
