Always very nerdy, sometimes a little gay.

Main characters in eccentric American art-house films have been raiding my video library...

I watched Napoleon Dynamite (Jared Jess, 2004) last night and enjoyed it immensely. My heart leapt when Napoleon briefly opened the door to his bedroom revealing an out of focus poster for Dragonslayer (Matthew Robbins, 1981) on his bedroom wall.

Similarly, the title character in Juno (Jason Reitman, 2007) regards Suspiria (Dario Argento, 1977) as one of her favourite films.

Is this a trend? Are my favourite films (especially the slightly lesser known ones) to be mainly remembered as favourite films of precocious and/or alienated teens in quirky art-house films?

Yes, probably, but I think this speaks very well of you.

Had you not seen Napoleon Dynamite before?

Welcome back. I'm glad I didn't have to see the "last updated" date, on my link to your blog, roll over from five months to six.
