    Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

    ★½

    I really wanted to enjoy this movie, but there just isn't enough in it to keep me interested for two hours. The humour didn't work, the plot wasn't interesting and I expected better practical visual effects from something James was involved with, not all the dodgy CGI.

    I realise this is a low budget film, but it's not even one of those "so bad it's good" films. If this didn't have the AVGN name attached to it, I wouldn't have stuck with it to the end. The review of E.T. during the end credits was probably the best thing about this.

    However, viewing this film a second time has given me a different perspective. Sure, it's silly but it's fun and has a good message. Isn't that was Star Trek was all about?

You actually feel like you're on the journey with John, for a while at least. After some time the film does start to expose you to some information that John doesn't have which made…
