If there's one thing that's totally undeniable, it's that movies really do have an effect on us.

There's something about enjoying a great movie that makes us wish that we could live in that reality — or at least grab a piece of the action we saw to admire at home. That's why movie memorabilia is such a popular collector's hobby, and why so many people have massive collections of gear dealing with their favorite sci-fi films.

Most people are satisfied with a simple movie poster, but why stop there? These geeky movie items you can actually buy online could have been plucked right off the screen during your favorite movie scenes — and they're readily available for you to enjoy.

Gremlins are absolutely adorable — until they're given water at the wrong time. If you've ever watched Gremlins, then you probably already recognize this little guy as Stripe in his "not-cute" form.

This Evil Stripe puppet is made of movie-quality rubber, allows you to make him move and talk, and also stands a whopping two feet tall. He's a little bit scary, but that's OK. We all know he can be a cutie pie, too.

It just doesn't seem fair to talk about geeky movie items you can actually buy without bringing up lightsabers from the Star Wars movie franchise. These officially licensed props are made to movie detail specification, and feature saber designs from your favorite characters.

The coolest part about these lightsabers is that they ignite the same way you see them light up on the silver screen. They also have a hefty "feel" of a real lightsaber, as well as the classic lightsaber sounds you'd expect to hear.

Lightsabers that you can buy include Kylo Ren's, Darth Vader's, Luke Skywalker's, and Obi-Wan Kenobi's. What more is there to say? It's a must-have movie prop for any Star Wars fan.

You know, horror movies never seem as scary on the silver screen until you actually have something like that in front of your face. If you want a super-realistic movie prop that will strike fear into peoples' hearts, you gotta check out this Freddy Krueger glove.

The glove is built to be an exact replica of the gloves used in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, and though it's made with fake leather, the metal is absolutely real. Terrifying? Absolutely.

Whether you're a huge fan of renfaires or just a major admirer of LOTR, it's impossible to deny the sheer awesomeness that is Gandalf the Grey's staff. One of the coolest geeky movie items you can actually buy right now is a SFX replica of his staff — complete with a light up top.

This is an officially licensed movie prop replica from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and that means you can expect a high level of detail in every facet of the staff's make. It's great for cosplay, hefty enough to be a real walking stick, and also just looks amazing when displayed at home.

Get this for your favorite geek, and they'll love you forever.

Albus Dumbledore has to be one of the coolest characters in the entire Harry Potter franchise — and he also has one of the coolest wands, too. That's why nothing could beat the awesomeness of having a perfect replica of Dumbledore's wand.

Potterheads who want to summon their own patronus or fight Death Eaters will want to snag this quickly. After all, it's one of the most affordable geeky movie items you can actually buy online.

Just, you know, go easy when you punish Draco Malfoy. He might be a Death Eater, but it's not all his fault, is it?

This is a set of super geeky movie items you can actually buy — and at first glance, you'd never guess why they'd be put in a set together. Though they look like they have absolutely nothing in common, they actually do.

Marvel comics geeks will tell you that the Hello Kitty backpack, Adventuretime watch, and Transformers ring all have one thing in common: all of these items were sported by everyone's favorite Merc with a Mouth in the movie, Deadpool.

They have absolutely nothing to do with Deadpool's logo, branding, or anything similar. They're just hilarious product placements that were used in the movie, and now, you, too, can have ridiculous product placements from Deadpool in your own life, too.

It's so meta, it's awesome in its own right.

This gorgeous ring is easily recognizable to any serious geek — it's The One Ring. It's the ring to rule them all, and now, you can wear it around your neck as you trek to work. Thankfully, there's no need to throw it in a volcano, since it's a prop ring and doesn't attract ring wraiths.

It's an officially licensed Middle-earth: Shadow of War collectible, and is designed to be durable, beautiful, and a picture-perfect replica of the Ring of Power that everyone battled over in Middle-earth.

Many of the geeky movie items you can actually buy online are a bit over-the-top for many peoples' tastes. After all, hanging up lightsabers and wizards' staves are not exactly the most mature-looking props to have sitting in your home.

That's why these whiskey tumblers are such awesome gifts for the high class geek in your life — they're subtle enough to get compliments from everyone, non-geeks included. These whiskey glasses are exact replicas of the tumblers featured in Blade Runner, and that makes them some seriously badass sci-fi barware.

The X-Men movie franchise was one of the most successful of all time, and one of the most popular characters in the series had to be Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. The Canadian clawed mutant was known for having awesome strength, rapid healing, and for his massive crush on Jean Grey.

For your big Marvel comics fan, one of the coolest geeky movie items you can actually buy online are dog tags sporting Wolverine's details. They're casual enough to be worn daily, but work perfectly for the right cosplay. These may not be officially licensed, but they're detailed enough to satisfy any diehard fan of X-Men: First Class.

People in the market for a seriously awesome life-sized movie prop from the X-Men franchise might want to check out this official, limited edition helmet worn by the leader of the Brotherhood of Mutants in movies like X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Magneto's helmet comes fully lined and ready to wear, with an official certificate of authenticity. If nothing but the most realistic movie props will do for your collection of geeky collectibles, this helmet will likely take the cake among the highest quality items for sale you'll find in the memorabilia world.

We all remember that scene where Harry first sees people playing Wizard Chess, with the pieces coming to life to battle it out on the board. For people who love a good game of chess, one of the best geeky movie items you can actually buy is a replica Wizard Chess set that looks identical to the one used in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Though these chess pieces will not actually come to life when you yell "check," they still look amazing and will provide hours of awesome gameplay. They would make a seriously unique gift for the right person, too.

For people who want to feel the power of a viking god coursing through their hands, nothing could beat this officially licensed, 1:1 replica of Thor's hammer. The brushed metal-look paintwork is impeccable, and it also will show the symbol of Odin to those who the hammer deems worthy.

Or, you know, it lights up whenever someone says "Thor" or "worthy." It comes with a cool display stand, has tasteful sound effects, and also does a great job of looking incredibly badass. For fans of Marvel superheroes or the Avengers movie, this is an amazing buy — making it one of the best geeky movie items you can actually buy.

He's the coolest god of thunder in popular culture, and the awesomeness of the hammer proves it.
