Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: By failing to push their galumphing antihero toward the self-knowledge he so desperately needs, [the directors] rob the film of its emotional stakes.
Fresh: A consistently entertaining, character-driven comedy set within a community rapidly losing out to online options.
Fresh: This is raw and affecting, a real movie rather than fan-con fun.
Fresh: This film comes from a place that is, perhaps to the creators' consternation, legit.
Not so good.
To borrow a quote from the movie, "It's your fault that no one likes you." How is this supposed to be a comedy? It's miserable and depressing. Zero Charisma is an apt title.
Donut/Taco Palace III
This film won the Audience Award as SXSW, so maybe some would disagree with the reviews so far.
All aspects of this indie film are something to behold. Sam Eidson creates a new nerd for film that isn't hip! Being a nerd is something bought and sold like a Target T-shirt, something people pretend to be embarrassed about on Facebook, "So, I know I'm a nerd but..."
If you don't have a crap job, self-esteem issues, and an unhealthy obsession with something game-related, you're not a nerd in 2013.
Gratz to the film makers and people on kickstarter and all involved with bringing this film to a wide audience!
Loved the Movie!
