Online Gaming's Own Version of The Wizard?
Remember The Wizard? Of course you do. Road-trip movie starring Fred Savage and Jenny Lewis, about a cross-country trip to participate in a Nintendo competition, mocked at the time, loved semi-ironically by hipsters nowadays.
Noobz, starring Jason Mewes, promises a look at gamer culture from the inside…and a cross-country trip to participate in an online gaming competition. Judging by the trailer, though, my guess is that its best hope lies in semi-ironic rediscovery twenty or so years from now.
Noobz opens theatrically January 25th, and hits DVD/On-Demand four days later.
