Once again, I’m digging into the past to drum up movie that every geek should see sometime in their live time. This time I’m talking about Fanboys. Now, I know there some controversies around the film during its development and screenings. So I just had to see it for myself.
This movie should be some sort of geek rite of passage. It’s freakin’ Star Wars, man. I think it’s a pretty fun movie. Like most of the movies I like, it’s not high brow or intellectually engaging. And the list cameos by various stars just makes this little movie a bit more endearing. It’s just a fun geeky movie. Sit back with some beer and popcorn and enjoy it.
I might take a little flak for giving this movie a Buy It recommendation. But there’s a good reason for this. While the plot and jokes aren’t complicated, the movie has great potential as a part of geek-fest movie marathon. Gather some friends. Forage for munchies. And start plugging in DVD’s. Shout at the screen. Just go all crazy MST3K and Rocky Horror on it. And I mean that in a good way.
Recommendation: Buy It.
