A Let-Down... a HUGE Let-Down
4 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as I love James Rolfe and his reviews, and with how long I've been watching his stuff, his first film suffered from some serious problems.

My first issue with it was how the first half hour of the film was all of the self-puffery. What I expected going into the movie was just the Nerd going about his usual day. A lot of immersion into his story was removed by the instant flood of "look how famous I am." Don't get me wrong, I'm really proud of Mr. Rolfe, and he deserves the credit for trying and working so hard, but it really put me off with how full of himself he seemed through most of this. He's the ANGRY Video Game Nerd, not the narcissistic.

It is James' character, so he's allowed to create it any way he wants, but it really rubbed me the wrong way. It seemed so prideful.

Second... the dialogue is some of the worst I've ever heard, and the worst acted. I'm sorry, but it was just terribly corny. I know that it's SORT OF in the spirit of the AVGN, but he had a system that worked fine in his reviews that seemed a bit... tweaked in the movie to fit "mass appeal." I know James is a child at heart, but there's a difference between being youthful, and acting like a kid. In fact, I have a feeling that if I saw this film as a CHILD, I might like it better. As an adult, it was just bad. Really bad. Unwatchably bad.

I can't give James a hard time for the special effects. He's not a mega-millionaire and he had to work with the budget he had. Some of the effects looked well-done. Others were... embarrassing.

The story had potential to be amusing, but what killed most of the comedic value for me was the "black buddy" Cooper. He had no purpose in the film other than to crack bad jokes and annoy everyone. I don't know if his dialogue was written that way on purpose, but every time he opened his mouth, I wanted to punch it repeatedly.

Overall, I love AVGN reviews... but I think James should just stick to those, and hopefully never make a sequel. I applaud him for putting in all of the effort-- it's not easy to make a movie all by yourself with very little advice on how to do so-- and I can tell he tried really hard. It just was a massive waste of time and money.

I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear than watch it a second time.
