The majority of reviews says it's shit, even cinemassacre drones admit that its shit
His wife forced him to "diversify" the movie. James is beta so he gave in.
Hurr durr muh muh EQUALITY. Muh proud black actors. Us white people need to speak for dem!
>b-b-but it's meant to be bad
>Hurr durr muh muh EQUALITY. Muh proud black actors. Us white people need to speak for dem!
what are you even trying to say?
they tried that before 1960's, it didnt work
>shitty looking movie is shit
Wow, who would have guessed?
Also AVGN is extremely overrated.
>/v/ complaining about black guy
>not the GAMUR GURL
I concur, it has the possible connotation of being condescending
I doubt no one really thought about this during casting, has to be something people are thing too hard about, it could literally be anyone, he just so happens to be black, unless of course the movie references he's black via dialog or something
So how long has he been making this film?
And did the best character make into it?
because the fun is in the actual reviews and his critiques of the games
not the obsessive swearing
not the poop analogies
and certainly not the skits.
this "movie" had no chance of being good
What is it with internet critics thinking they can make good skits? Don't they get that people only watch them to hear their opinions about vidja/movies and not their stupid OH SO WACKY ADVENTURES.
I never expected this movie to be any good when i saw the cast. Quite ironic that a guy that talks about bad games and bad movies all the time, and gives advice on how to make things better all the time, can't produce a halfway decent movie himself.
>I keep posting it
This is the first thread I've said that. Also, how nu r u? The tweet with his wife saying she was going to diversify his work was all over /v/. Lurk moar faggot.
there are stupid kids who actually leave them comments like "omg skit was so funny pls do more!"
nostalgia critic and avgn are the worst, but at much as i like redlettermedia, their little skits in the reviews and also half in the bag are awful. i always skip them
Or maybe he wants to reference 80's movies.
How many bathroom jokes are in the movie? I quickly got bored with him when 2/3 of his reviews are just him swearing and than literally shitting on the game or whatever. I never understood why people love him so much. His other reviews are much better in my opinion.
James is a fragile old man with a wife and responsibilities, I really don't want this film to crash and burn because he has a lot of passion for cinematography, but at the same time I hope it's not too successful and prompts him to do more AVGN stuff, it's getting unbearably bad.
> not a single link is posted
> everyone just eats it right up because they desperately want it to be true
I just got back from an early screening of Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie starring James Rolfe. Three words: hella f*cking epic.
I went with some friends and I don't think we went more than 10 seconds without busting up laughing. I mean what can I say about the James Rolfe that already hasn't? He's a comedic god.
The supporting cast holds their own though: it's got the incomparable Jeremy Suarez, the lovely and talented Sarah Glendening and Doug Walker, the pundit from my favorite show, Nostalgia Critic.
This is, without a doubt, my favorite movie of the year (and arguably one of the funniest comedies of all time) so I highly suggest you and some friends go out and see it when it comes out to a theater near you.
lel whatever m8s.
The whole internet seems to like it.
/v/ are just buttmad fags as usual.
You wanna know why it's shit?
>James is passionate about film and is a decent director, but he cannot act for shit
>Young, hip "disney channel sidekicks" for no fucking reason
>Terrible terrible jokes such as "oh for the love of pong"
>AVGN should have ended a LONG time ago
Please, enlighten me then.
Tell me why the Angry Video Game Nerd, a middle aged balding basement dweller, is hanging out with two teenagers.
Please tell me why they were written into the film.
The only companion James should have is the singer dude who's always with him.
I've never seen this guy, why am I supposed to pretending it's okay and totally expected? It's like watching a Zelda movie, seeing everything you expected from the games (Ganon, rupees, Zoras, Gorons), then suddenly it introduces Link's sidekick named Bob "who was ALWAYS in the series, how dare you not remember him".
And I wouldn't have it any other way, can't fucking wait.
I feel like if he needed buddies, he should have had his real friends there. Mike is in a lot of his videos and supervised by James, he's not so bad. Kyle Justin too would have worked. The problem is less he's black in my mind and more "we need friends for the nerd that have never appeared and are written purely to diversify the film"
>James decides to make a movie about the AVGN character so that he can get a leg up into the film industry
>Probably planned on retiring the character afterwards and working on horror movies
>tfw this bombs and he will never work again
>He'll always be known as that guy who made the shitty SJW movie
>guy is following his life dream of making a movie. why you guys gotta shit on him?
Because james is a fucking idiot.
Instead of making the balls to the wall movie he ever wanted to do he started to compromise his vision by introducing all kinds of washed up idiots like kevin finn to help him tone it down for the general population or some shit.
Now the movie is the crappy abortion of 100 cooks who had to spoil the soup
james wants to kill avgn, especially considering that he's married with a kid now
honestly, I'm just happy he did it. It'll be fucking terrible but it will have a clean end
unlike douge and le nostalgia critic
The black friend thing is hillarious because having minority burger king kids club sidecharacters is usually a thing studio executives push onto people making films AGAINST their will.
James had the oportunity to make a movie without studio interference and then he went out of his way to cram all that shit into it that self funded movies wont have to do in the first place because they got no suit breathing down their neck
>guy is following his life dream of making a movie
>instead of making something original, he has to make a movie for a character he's clearly tired of
also, just because making a movie was his dream doesn't mean it's flawless
The movie's out? The movie got made? Fuck I feel out of the loop.
How does it compare to say...Ashens and the Quest For The Gamechild? Because I thought Gamechild was sort of naff but largely inoffensive.
QFTG is far, FAR superior in my opinion. The AVGN film is pretty bad (not tgwtg bad, but bad) and is only enjoyable if you want to see what doug was up to for the past few years.
Watch the video logs he did about his video.
You can clearly see the transition. It goes from 'I am picking the cast, everything and finding the right people to act' to 'We picked those people'
James also looks unpleased.
Some random nigger and bitch are suddenly the Nerd's companions, not Mike or Kyle or anyone who actually appeared in any AVGN episodes. Solely to please his SJW wife who demanded he diversify the cast.
shit really? I know there are /tgwtg/ threads on /tv/ but I don't bother to lurk. All I know is that doug was on the hook for $50,000 and started a kickstarter for a gameshow that flopped. Also something involving getting rejected by PBS too
>Everyone who has had any job have to make 'comprimises'
That's the point you fucking mongoloid assclown. He was his own boss here and in one of the rare situation where he had to make no compromises and just could've made THE movie he always wanted to do.
Then he got scared and had other people walk all over him and decide for him what movie to do
I was sure it will be shit, they always are. I just want more reviews where he talks about games and not does some stupid shit
>omg the game character visited my house
fuck this shit
Sort of naff but largely inoffensive.
Enjoyment is going to be very heavily contingent on how much you watch Ashen's videos as is because a good chunk of the jokes are referential to the source material rather than more general stuff. Even then it's kinda just an okay movie.
I didn't cringe myself into a singularity watching it, I laughed a couple of times but it's not all solid gold. 8.8
>Does anyone have a source on this? It sounds likely, but still
>The second thing that has become apparent recently is the lack of diversity on Cinemassacre. In its beginnings it was James and only James, so diversity wasn’t an issue, but now as the site expands to include new shows like OverAnalyzers, Mi
She also was behind that abortion overanalyzers, if anyone can remember
iirc I wasn't so much his wife, but when filming began doug hired a token nigger too so I think james thought that he had to do similar
>we don't need sources for things it's a given because I say so
sauce is always required
James needs to stop. He needed to stop six, maybe seven years ago. Most of his original fans have grown up and moved on, he's married and he's getting old and all of that shows. It's time for him to hang up the pocket protector, stop trying to hang on to the "golden years" of the '80s, and step into the real world.
>Mike Matei gets naked in a long scene and opens his nut bag with a drill it's very graphic and pieces of his nut flesh and blood is everywhere.. oh I couldn't finish the movie in the screening I had to walk out.
Who of you faggots was this?
i was wondering why game-related people have such feminazi sjw type wives or girlfriends, but it makes sense.
the only people who would like fat ugly slobs like james or doug or egoraptor are ugly women who have been rejected by enough men to be driven to the point of "muh feminism" like all feminists, and the guys are such losers desperate for pussy that theyll give in to whatever theyre told to do by their wives/gfs
he is stopping, from my understanding this is the last "avgn" thing he's doing. It's just that production/post production took a long fucking time. His normal reviews (board james and his film reviews) are pretty good and not filled with retarded skits
>Everyone blaming his wife for the SJW shit
While I'm sure she had a hand in it I would bet money that Douge also had a part to play in this.
>He helped with casting for the movie
>He hired a black person for Demo Reel just for diversity
>He makes his living off pandering
It all makes sense if you think about it.
everyone knows its bad.
im not arguing with you. im insulting you for jumping on the bandwagon for this movie just because everyone else decided to when there have been plenty of asylum movies already
your actions are far more "meme" like than anyone elses here
they've got enough money and popularity to not be considered "losers".
it might have more to do with the wish to "adapt" each other in a relationship
>This guy is cool, famous and all, but he should think about other things sometimes.
>Hey, she might not like what I do, but she'll eventually become tolerant.
won't happen, it's always a game of manipulation until someone either breaks up or gives up on their personal interests.
persona and jojo are relatively obscure. just because we know it doesnt mean most people do.
most people just flock to zelda, final fantasy, kindom hearts, street fighter and smash brothers
SJW and male feminists are just permavirgin betas who think they will finally be allowed to touch a vagina if they just white knight hard enough.
It will never work out, but they see it as literally their only way of getting laid EVER
>AVGN makes a movie
>backers don't get copies or anything
>it takes forever to come out
>Ashen makes a movie
>its free to watch and backers get exclusive content
>comes out in a decent time
>it's not great, but not horrible
The real question is when is Motherfucker Mike going to make Minecraft With Gadget - The Movie?
Can you actually believe this faggot is still making videos? His new stuff is literally triple the cringe. Seriously go to his channel. His sense of humor is at about a 1st grade level and all of his videos get completely shit on but he keeps doing it for some reason.
They have intentionally hammy acting, cheap, campy effects,plot inconsistencies, and dialogue that points many of these things out. In a sense, they are bad, but they are obviously meant for the sort of people who like watching crappy b and c grade films because they are cinephiles. Why do you think they have the Best of the Worst segment? Because its probable that an avid film watcher has interest in alternative cinema.
So when are we going to grab some popcorn and watch this movie together guys?
>obscure as fuck
it's becoming so popular that it has outgrown the franchise.
SMT is now an obscure game series while Persona is some kind of Final Fantasy with demons and waifus everybody knows about.
Persona 3 and 4 alone have more sequels / adaptations and shit than the mainline MegaTen games.
That's exactly what I'm saying.
The first I ever heard of Jojo was like two years ago, even though its been running for like +30 years and its popular as fuck in Japan. But now everyone who is even slightly interested in anime has heard about it.
When is Mark going to make a movie?
He gives just about everything a positive review, so it should be happy and whimsical like a Studio Ghibli film.
Is anyone actually surprised it is shit after the trailer came out? The acting was just too terrible, statistically there was no way the story or anything could make up for it. I never really got into these Internet personalities but he should at least know his ceiling as far as fans go.
Fuck you, I'm now imagining him going into one of those angry nerd rages where he beats up one of the guest, but with his wife.
>yfw this is better than the movie
>'' its all too clear that this site is a caucasion sausage fest. While I can’t help to add any ethnic diversity, I can bring a female perspective to things that I think all 10 of the female viewers will appreciate.''
Why hadn't I read this shit before, she went full feminazi there, as if the AVGN needed diversity to be good.
i know their skits are intentionally campy and meant to be parodies but i just dont find them to be good or funny parodies
as a whole theyve gone downhill a bit recently.
i mean i guess they can only say the same things about good or bad movies so many times. like they didnt even review the new transformers movie really. i think theyre running out of gas
>having to carry a camera around to film
why can't people just show up here and see me acting
REALLY? EDITING? look at this artificial lengthening of work
making a film isn't challenging, just annoying
Maybe if the movie was more diverse it wouldn't have flopped.
It means "I have very little respect for this product and I think the vast majority of the people who care about it are scum but in spite of, or maybe because of that, I'm going to ruin it anyway"
>people being this assblasted because some people use more images than one
>actually trying to enforce "the one image rule"
>really seriously rating posts on that rule only, instead of just not caring
>people actually care this much
Oh wow you people
You really are some of the
And above all
On the topic of video game themed movies, did anyone see that Ashens gamechild movie on YouTube? I thought it was alright but the Chef excellence actor made it so much worse than it could've been.
Are The Gamers and The Gamers Dorkness Rising the only good "nerd" movies?
Why must all the others be so horribly unfunny and lacking in self awareness.
It was shit because they tried to make a movie out of a web series. There's a specific format AVGN works in, and it's not strong enough to carry an hour and thirty minutes of actual plot. It's the same reason Kickassia and the other Nostalgia Critic movies I've forgotten about were shit.
The only difference is that Rolfe is an okay person but Doug's got his head shoved up his ass.
I haven't watched the latest episodes, but I think one of the problems is in-depth discussions about movies in a medium where a lot of things are the same. You occasionally get something different, but in the end you are basically reviewing the same schlocky-dumb-action-movie, schlocky-dumb-action-movie-with-surprisingly-good-writing, schlocky-horror-movie, etc. So in the end a lot of it end up sounding the same. Certainly it doesn't help that Mike and Jay are fairly superficial reviewers that appeal to a somewhat casual movie-going audience.
I never found the skit bits super entertaining either, and they never held the same interest as the original Plinketts with Mike in terms of comedy, but the silly irreverence is enough to be somewhat entertaining, for me anyway.
>Implying Mike can act for a whole movie
>Implying Justin can too
>Implying the shit quality of AVGN videos made into a full 90 minute movie was that easy.
He did the best with what he had. He has studied this shit and I think he did the best he could with what he had. I still question the choice in supporting cast. Seems to be more of a SJW pleaser than an actual production decision.
Finally, last movie was such shit
That's what they get for hiring western artists
>DSP will never burp on your face in 1080p and 60FPS
Dorkness rising is a really cringey film though. The acting is awful, and only really does a decent job of showing how there's a lot of drama bullshit in pnp rpgs. Also lens flares as special effects are terrible. Please stop this forever.
>You now remember that "The Proxy" thing that Ashens did that has since been removed from youtube
Literally the worst thing I've ever seen. The viewer drop off from episode 1 to episode 2 through to the final episode was astronomical
I had to dig through hundreds of videos of him at E3 2014 and discussing Skylanders to actually find a video where he reviewed a game.
It was Die Hard on the NES.
>tfw the nerd reviewed this years ago
>tfw un-ironic shitty special effects
>tfw he needs to explain die hard the movie
>tfw nitpicking the game because he starts off on the top story of the skyscraper "without explanation"
>tfx faux-rage and cringeworthy dialogue
Everything wrong with this movie stems from the script being complete garbage. It was something James and his film school buddy wrote back in 2007 when they weren't even being serious about the idea.
If they actually wanted to go through with it, they should have hired an actual writer to work with them and get a good script together based on their initial concept of ET. Of course I think they would have been better off just not making it at all, The Nerd is barely tolerable as a character in short videos.
It's still on the Multiverse.
I didn't like it simply because it was pure Asus shill material. On that topic, does anyone find it annoying that Ashens' new videos have the TTS voice say "subscribe"?
It sucking fucks and it fucking sucks
That video he made where he plays silver surfer and he flies into the tv with all those awful green screen effects had me in tears hardest I've laughed in a while
>AVGN movie isn't about him leaving his basement and going crazy over the state of the video game industry now
>/v/ instead bitches about "muh diversity" and "acting" in a AVGN related piece
Get your fucking act together /v/ he essentially turned a script for a 10 minute review into almost a 2 hour feature length film.
Holy shit this he just won't go away I hate it too because even if you complain about it I'm sure they just brush it off as WOW THOSE FILTHY TROLLS OMG STOP TROLLING like no one is asking him to stop being friends with him but stop putting him in your videos fuck
AVGN has always been mildly funny at best.
His best stuff is when he digs into gaming lore and history and talks about uncommon gems and interesting bullshit. Like that episode with the Atari game where if you beat it you could win actual treasure. That's really fucking fascinating.
Any time his retard friends get involved though it's usually a recipe for disaster.
I'm glad I'm not the only one to feel that way
My friends made me watch it with them because they know I like B-movies and I was pissed at how the moving was trying so hard to be bad that it was terrible
A real B-movie is trying to be good and manages to be so bad that its good like Pet Sematary 2
Well... Watch in TGWTG in specials i think it is. Doug was interviewing participants in the staff selection. I don't know if he selected the participants but he was there for sure
>disliking token female characters that are only added to pander to a certain demographic is now "hating women"
This is why your social justice movement will never amount to anything, you deal in hyperbole and exaggeration.
>He doesn't like RWBY
When the writers are watching anime like SAO for "homework" you already know how it's going to turn out
The best episodes by far include Swordquest, NES accesories and Nintendo Power. Because they ween't just games. all of these were pieces of history too. same for the atari clones and the Sega CD review
He is... i'm curious to see what shitty role he played. I think he's the nerd's boss, no wonder le reddits liked that part.
Chiee is a fucking slut. Just imagine the amount of sausage she had between those lips. She was probably the town bike before you came around and she was instantly lusting after your salami next.
Her phonenumber is probably all over public toilets with the annotation that she's willing to do anything for a beefbowl.
And remember those 3 guys from her S rank? As soon as you enter the train to go back home those guys probably rape her and NTR the shit out of her, turning her into a sexslave so they don't have to pay for the meat to take turns on her
sharknado 2 was far, far worse
I actually enjoyed the first one, but wow you literally could not try harder with this fucking turd
all these f-list celebrities for no fucking reason, product placement out the ass, 4th wall breaking constantly, jesus fuck it's the most obnoxious pandering shit I've ever seen in my life
WOWmovie comes out next year.
4chan won't allow me to post the URL, so just google it.
>The second thing that has become apparent recently is the lack of diversity on Cinemassacre. In its beginnings it was James and only James, so diversity wasn’t an issue, but now as the site expands to include new shows like OverAnalyzers, Mike’s Glitches, guest actors on Board James or AVGN and fun little videos like the TMNT Pizza Party its all too clear that this site is a caucasion sausage fest. While I can’t help to add any ethnic diversity, I can bring a female perspective to things that I think all 10 of the female viewers will appreciate.
>admits that female viewers are an incredibly small minority
>still vastly overhauls the project to pander to them
yeah let's make this project for people who don't want to watch it! :^)
I decree that /po/ and /3/ are the worst blue boards on 4chins!
>actually arguing over the worst board on fucking 4chan of all places
>implying NC is famous enough to not know who AVGN is
there is absolutely nowhere else on this website that will have a 400 reply thread where the OP is just talking out his ass and then everyone else believes him with no source whatsoever
>people are differentiated only by their skin color or gender
"white people" isn't some monolithic culture and pretending as if they are really betrays some stone-cold ignorance
I expected the same from this as the Nigahiga movie all those years ago.
Don't get me wrong. James clearly has a lot of love for film. But I don't think he has a lot of love for AVGN, it feels like something he wants to pull away from.
But hey, maybe with this he'll be able to put AVGN to rest and start something new with his life.
Ohhh man I remember watching this when it came out. This was the most hilarious thing they've ever made
I mean it is good, but it gets pretty boring, if not mildly annoying. Ashens humor is great when it is taken in short doses, but it gets tediously predictable the longer you watch.
>Not a single source, link, proof, or even stream
The day /v/ went full reddit.
Wait, the movie is finally out? Where the fuck can I watch it?
>thread ruined in the first post because muh racism
Do these stormshits really have to be on every board?
>Also AVGN is extremely overrated.
>Rolfe blows a game's flaws out of proportions and then talks about which animals he would rather eat shit form.
I just wrote the plot of every single AVGN episode ever.
Are you guys ready for Jame's review of his own movie?
>James is extremely passionate about directing and cinema
>he's spent his entire life making movies
>the culmination of his life's work ends up being subpar
I feel kind of sorry for him. This was probably the best he could do, and it just wasn't enough.
>reviewing your own content
That's autistic as fuck.
The plot was always going to be inane, certainly not the best he could do in the writing department. If he put that much effort into something actually decently written he'd be a decent indie filmmaker.
I saw James Rolfe at a grocery store in Philadelphia yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
