Angry Video Game Nerd movie
« on: November 11, 2012, 07:02:12 PM »

I'm actually ... kinda excited about this one. Is there something wrong with me?

I mean, it won't be great. But it could be fun. I like Rolfe in general ... not the most knowledgeable guy on games, but he's got great delivery.

Eh; I'm happy the guy finally got his movie finished. Totally got to give him credit in the whole passion/dedication department.

Never really was too big on him though; a lot of miss with a few hits. Writes too much 'scat and expletive porn' into his work for my taste. (If the excess of imagery/exposure of human suffering is labeled 'torture porn' then what Rolfe does literally fits the definition I give). When he's in his calmer states and actually uses moderation in his jokes of choice I think the guy's a fantastic entertainer. Really doubt I could stand an entire movie of his brand of comedy though.

I may still yet give him the benefit of the doubt and try to watch it whenever it comes out. Mostly depends on how/if he tries to 'sell it' besides that one advert; which only mildly has my curiosity for the '...what did I just watch?' factor.

For me, the guy was at his peak during his first two years or so. I thought that maybe it's just some weird kind of nostalgia, but even watching the episodes side-by-side I still find his earlier ones a lot funnier. I'm not even sure what it is the newer ones are missing. Not that his newer episodes are terrible or anything, but the earlier ones like Silver Surfer and Die Hard had me in stitches.

I'm curious of the movie, at the very least. I honestly don't look forward to the game review itself because honestly, what can you even say about E.T.? It's an Atari game, almost all those games were just one stage over and over. The "special effects" episodes he had for AVGN were often the worst ones IMO, so I'm not sure I'd like it if the whole movie turns out to be like that.
