""Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie" is a passion project by independent filmmakers James Rolfe and Kevin Finn, based on the popular web series. The film is being produced outside the studio system, entirely funded by fan donations. Principle photography took place in Spring of 2012, in the Los Angeles area, with Jason Brewer as the DP. Additional filming is taking place on the East Coast. Editing is in its early stages."

I am not sure what to make of this after watching the trailer. I really enjoy the Angry Video Game Nerd shorts but I wasn't in love with this trailer. I will watch this movie, no doubt, but this movie seems to go into different territory that might not work for a Nerd movie.

I am sort of reminded of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie and sort of wonder if that kind of treatment would make more sense for an AVGN film. In MST3K The Movie they kept the structure of the show but made it longer and had a bit more budget.

What do you think, are you interested in a Angry Video Game Nerd movie? What did you think of the trailer?

I was just about to post this. It looks so over the top, but I think it will be funny. He always does the ridiculous non-review bits at the end of his reviews, and I think this will just be one feature-length post-review bit. It's just a matter of whether he can keep the humor up for that long.

Wow, no, this is definitely something I'd pass on. I enjoy his reviews(although I admittingly haven't seen many), but this movie totally turns me off.

I got tired of him, but he actually looks a little toned down in the preview (relatively). I think he has pretty high hopes as a film maker, like in that American Movie kind of way, so I think it will definitely be something. I don't know if he can pull it off, but it may be good for a laugh to watch. Thanks for putting it on my radar. I also like how the general looks like the Mandroid from Eliminators.
