Next up was this Scottish comedy about a bunch of nerds who play D&D-esque role playing games. It's actually pretty good... It made me chuckle occasionally... There's a hot goth girl in it... and it actually seems like they got the gaming part... well, close to right. I guess every nerd had his (or in two cases her) own experience with how you sat in the basement playing these games on weekends - I myself never wore a cloak - but I think a lot of this movies charm relies on the nerdy audience's memories not totally disagreeing with how the character on screen play. I myself still hold up a short bit of machinema as being the perfect dramatization of gaming... but hey, this one comes close.

There is a bit of a dramatic turn in it though... and some stuff weighs it down so I can't really call it uproariously hilarious or anything like that, but it does have its charm and I think it succeeds as a film. I was pleasantly surprised, mostly due to the "Z" at the end of the title. With a title like GamerZ, my expectations are pretty damn low.

So while I liked this, I've still yet to see a break-out loving-it movie... Last year I guess I was lucky because it was right off the bat with Strings... This year though... well maybe it's coming up.
