Are we all lazy slobs who can't handle sexuality? That's apparently what the movie Noobz thinks about us.
If its biggest star is Casper Van Dien we have nothing to worry about.
i didn't know Casper Van Dien was a star
I can't even bear to watch the video with sound.
I think you might be blowing this out of proportion...just a tad. It looks like your typical teen/coming-of-age comedy with all the endemic Hollywood caricatures and stereotypes. I don’t see anything from this preview that casts gaming in a particularly bad light – any more so than your typical flawed, Hollywood protagonist – though as Bitmob and GamesBeat have slavishly documented, online and competitive gaming has made great strides to earn many of these stereotypes – be it the rampant sexism, homophobia, racism, or general immaturity.
I don't know... "Fraggett."
Wow. In theaters for a whole four days.
It's satire although a very poorly done attempt at it.
What is it satirizing?
Like Lifeequals42 said above its just another stereotypical buddy comedy movie with their take on the gaming community as a backdrop. I don't think it is supposed to be taken seriously & i don't think it puts gamers in a bad light. Look gamers & video games in general have been put under a microscope lately cause of the violence that has occurred & being blamed for the horrific tragedies involving gun violence. Although i agree that this is & will be a terrible movie i believe it is okay to make fun of the industry now & than which i think this film is attempting to do.
"Are we all lazy slobs who can't handle sexuality?" uh... has the author never been to any gaming convention and/or comicon?
Never been to Comicon, but I've been to PAX -- and the people I always meet there almost all have their shit together.
I'm willing to bet Sessler won't realize he's in this movie until somebody tells him on Twitter, at which point he'll sue for defamation of character.
This film looks freakin awful.
Agree, saw this a few weeks back and this is how they portray games? I knows its supposed to be a comedy but its just cringe worthy IMO
