Are we a cult?

 I was wondering, you know how they often say that a slightly obscure movie or TV show with a small but highly obsessed dedicated fanbase has a 'cult-following' or is a 'cult favorite?'
Does Megamind fall under that heading? How large/passionate/steadfast does a fandom have to be in order to be offically dubbed a 'cult?' I mean, there's still quite a few of us, and we're extremely passionate, and it's been, what, three or four years?

We're not a cult! At least not until I get around to making and shipping out the portable shrines.

*sigh* Now I know why my father always talked about founding his own religion but never really got around to it; it's so much work! Finding the right shade of blue paint, molding the Sculpy, thinking up rites . . .

That is a very good question! I have no answer. Perhaps the age of the movie has something to do with it? Maybe a movie or show needs to be around a couple of decades or something, like The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Then again, it could be said that Firefly also has a cult following. Ah, I just Googled the definition of "cult following": it is 'a group of fans who are highly dedicated to a specific area of culture.' That seems like a fairly open-ended definition, but I'd say that yes, we are a cult following. Or rather, the Megamind movie has a cult following. Woo hoo! :)

(Of course, a REAL cult requires one to cut off all ties to family and friends and funnel all resources into the cult, so obviously we are not one of those real, bad-news, yucky cults. Still, I like fairest1's tongue-in-cheek response.)

I feel like that should be accompanied by maniacal laughter.
