Trivia

Final film project of Justin Carmical. There was an improvised scene featuring him (without his Wario hat, due to copyright reasons) and other video game reviewers but it was reduced to him and other reviewers reacting hysterically to The Nerd's videos. See more »

Goofs

At the Las Vegas casino, Mandi is seen playing a 'One Armed Bandit' fruit machine. A close up shot of the machine shows that she wins the 777 Jackpot but, when the camera angle changes to show her celebrating, the machine shows 3 random fruits, which is actually not a win at all. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Zandor: Only a gamer would jump at nothing to find a hidden block. But something tells me you're not just some gamer, but thee gamer.

Crazy Credits

As the end credits scroll, the Nerd finally reviews Eee Tee for the Atari 2600 in front of thousands of people, and though he still says it is a bad game, his final verdict is that it is cryptic and challenging as well as addicting and he respects that it holds a place in people's hearts. The flying saucer then speeds away. See more »

Alternate Versions

The end credit sequence, along with a scene of the Nerd being transported down from the spaceship, was re-edited, using real footage from the E.T. video game, into a standalone episode. In the movie, due to copyright claims, the game is called Eee Tee. All gameplay of games shown in the film is recreated animated graphics, made to resemble the original games. Actual gameplay for the E.T. game was recorded, and then given to the animators during post-production to recreate with slightly different graphics. In the Movie a sequel to Eee Tee, titled Eee Tee 2, makes an appearance and is comprised of 3D animated graphics, emulating the original video game. See more »

Disappointing all the way...
20 April 2015 | by jonasjuozaponisSee all my reviews

I am a big fan of AVGN. I've been watching him from about 2011. I've seen every single AVGN episode quite a couple of times. When i heard about AVGN movie I was like holy cow i must watch it! But then when i did watch it, it was a disappointment. So let's start with the good things: The acting is OK, the lighting is good, the camera-work is OK too. I liked the 8-bit style soundtrack as well. Also the effects, while not great, are quite impressive, cause they are not done in CG. And... that's it. The rest sucks. Nerd himself isn't funny at all (i've never found him to be very funny in the first place) and he reminded me of MJ from Moonwalker (The opening scene). I don't know if it was intentional or not, but he seems to treat himself like a god and say: look at me! So yeah he sucks. However, his black sidekick Cooper is way worse... You might be wondering who is Cooper? Well, I don't know really. The only things we know are that his name is Cooper, he lives with his mom and he is a video game reviewer and calls himself The Rad Video Game Dude or something like that. There's actually nothing to say about the other characters. They are not funny and not very interesting. So yeah, the writing is this film's biggest sin. The movie is quite boring and there are scenes which don't go anywhere. Like the scene where Cooper talks nonsense about the world being flat and stuff like that. I was disappointed to NOT see Mike Matei or Kyle Justin in the movie... Oh wait, we do see them for 5 DAMN SECONDS...... I wouldn't mind at all if Mike was James's sidekick. He's not a bad actor. But then again, I don't think he needed a sidekick in the first place. He's The Nerd god dammit, he works alone! So that's pretty much all I can say about this movie. Sadly, I can't even recommend it for the most loyal fans of the AVGN series.
