As the movie progressed however, it started getting really slow and confusing. The story felt bloated and there was too much time spent talking about Area 51. I think my favorite part was during the closing credits when he actually reviews the original ET.
What's odd is that the AVGN apparently couldn't get the rights to any of the games featured in the movie. So ET was titled Eee Tee and the game screens were reproduced so the games looked just different enough to avoid a lawsuit. That was unfortunate.
Overall I guess it was mildly enjoyable but I'm not sure I could get through it without the help of a few beers. Maybe next time I watch it I'll write up a full review.
If you want to see a great video game movie I recommend King of Kong: A fistfull of quarters.
Funny thing, James seems to like making movies above everything else (including video games), and the AVGN videos kind of served as a method to get the crediability needed to fund a full-length feature.
Critic, you ought to do a movie. Maybe something where you review Polybius while on Jupiter?
I thought it was a really good film, don't think it was a dud at all, I had no trouble following it whatsoever. I don't need alcohol to get through any film, never been drunk a day in my life and never will be.
I don't get the complaints about it being over-the-top, I mean cmon it's AVGN, he always goes over-the-top, so that should really come as no surprise at all.
Wallyworld- No the nerd's act is not getting "old" or "stale" in the least, he's still every bit as funny now.
