Astro Bastards declare a cosmic war on their unwanted ancestors, Flying Fuckernauts in this spectacular trailer for a "lost" (actually fictional) sci-fi movie presented by The Angry Video Game Nerd (2004)'s eponymous host.
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 »
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 »
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 »
I want to like it, but I can't. I got bored on half the movie.
I know it is not a big production movie and I really enjoy that it knows it is a low budget film and makes fun of it, but it is just boring. It is slow, most of the jokes are not that funny, nor corny enough to make them memorable. Having a "Jar Jar Binks" didn't work for Lucas, and also didn't help The Nerd to have Cooper Folly. I think he could have done something different that would be more entertaining for that character.
Again, the effects are cheesy, but that is fine with me. I really like the location shots and I think they did a lot with their budget and the effects really matched the tone of the movie. The main problem is that it is too freaking slow. Probably I am being harsh because I watched Wayne's World a few weeks ago and I was expecting something more on that style, or probably their jokes were not over the top enough to be funny.
Honestly, I hope the nerd comes back to direct a movie and I really hope that this movies opens a lot of doors for him, but hopefully next time someone else will write it. Also, I don't see a bright future for the other actors.
