"The Wizard" Movie Review

Gamer Limit writes "In 1989, a movie was released that promised to be the ultimate film about the gamer. A movie where Fred Savage and his mentally impaired brother would fight against the powers that be (their parents) to become the video game champions of the world.

Where Nintendo would shamelessly flaunt every product they had, and at the end launch the most anticipated game of the late eighties. Where 10-year-old kids were able to travel across the country alone without ringing any bells. Where the Power Glove was king." (Culture)

@Jorrel56,
you mean the best advertisement for a product ever - The Power Glove. That movie must have sold a ton of those, and 1 was bought by me. Unfortunately, it never worked like in the movie lol. Still though, I love that movie.

@TheGameLlama, you must be joking. Gamer is a sorry excuse for a movie.

I still remember going to see this movie in the theatre when it was released, and as you were walking in they handed out little 4 page strategy guides for Super Mario Bros. 3. It was coolest thing EVER! Oh the memories.

dude, seriously. that exact comment is the first comment under the video on the site, you copied and pasted obviously. i hope you are the same person or thats lame.

I rewatch this movie at least once a year....
if you were a kid in 1989 waiting for Super Mario Bros. 3 to release and loved Nintendo, this movie is excellent. It also has sentiment that gets me everytime. Long live 80's movies! :)

and Fred Savage's little brother wasn't mentally impaired, he was just depressed about his twin sister..the kid is a videogame genius how is that impaired?

Somehow I completely missed this film, yet I saw pretty much everything else Fred Savage was in including Little Monsters.
DarkTower805  +   2187d ago
Lol, another classic. I pissed off alot of family members pulling off those pranks I saw in the movie.

Totally holds up.

the power glove proves that motion controlling was only a matter of time for the tech to catch up
chaserooniman  +   2187d ago
The power glove did have one power. It's owners were doomed to be virgins.

I shouldn't have bought one.

LMAO, bubbles for that!
