Storyline

Ashens' insane fictional search for a piece of fabled electronic tat: the Game Child. Accompanied by fan-favourite Chef Excellence (a human version, not the bloody puppet), together they try to overcome the odds - and all common sense - to lay their hands on the legendary Game Child, an old knock-off handheld video game console. But a shadowy figure, aided by Ashens' irritating nemesis, wants the game for their own dastardly ends. Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

Key Grip: Sorry. Actually we couldn't afford a Key Grip for the film so the rest of the crew had to carry all the grip equipment themselves. So anyway, we Wikipeded "Easter Egg", and the term was coined way back by someone at Atari because a game designer hid a secret message in a game. So it's like hunting for a hidden Easter egg. Huh.

Stuart Ashens (Ashens) may be a guilty pleasure of some... Not as popular as some of the American YouTube Stars such as PewdePie or Markiplier but he is definitely a hit... Especially with UK audiences.

And like many more he has produced a movie... Whats it like? Well actually its pretty fun!

Do not expect ground breaking effects from a man who reviews complete cr*p for a living - But marvel at the amazing number or Pop culture references he manages to squeeze in... Squirm at the obvious little "nods" against political correctness (People not being able to say 'Don't get your knickers in a twist' is so stupid but so fun!!!)

And ask yourself the question everyone is asking - How the bloody hell did he manage to get Warwick Davis and Robert LLewellyn to do Cameos in such a low budget production???

So, yeah! This is your typical, low budget, slightly off the wall film...

But damn its good! It has just the right level of humour and cheese to make it truly watchable.

Its hard to pick a favourite point, as its just one of those films that relishes being what it is... Ashens reviews Tat and made his film to be Tat... And its that which gives it such a unique flavour and makes it work so well.

While it will not win any academy awards or even BAFTA's... Crikey it would be lucky to win a Grammy and everyone and their dog seems to be able to get one of them... It is a fantastic piece of work and well worth watching.
