Before we begin let me say this:
THIS IS 100% OPINION, NOT MEANT TO BE TREATED AS FACT. THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A DIRECT INSULT TO EVERYONE. I'M NOT RETRACTING MY FAN STATUS BECAUSE OF THIS TRAILER!!!!!!
With that said, Here we Go.
So yeah... I have mixed feelings towards the thing. Even from second one it didn't exactly Impress me.
So the trailer begins with a green screen with text like any movie but this screen just shows how vulgar this movie can get. Sure certain AVGN Episodes can get Vulgar at times, but at least it got to the point of this movie towards the end of the Episode. The movie starts out with people convincing James Rolfe to review ET, Seems pretty Promising, if a little to little of an idea for a movie, But as Moviebob said, you can make a good movie out of anything. Then he Discusses the game with his friend I assume (but he looks like he's still in high school). More of the ET story unfolds and a bunch of kids are trying to break through a wire fence. I Know they're supposed to be in their 20's, but they look like they're 12. The heroes discuss the plan more and Jame's female friend brings out the Nerdmobile and... UGH... Why do I get the feeling it's going to be yet another Seltzerberg Wannabe. The heroes are making some kind of documentary, while the Men in Black (or some bullcrap like that) are looking over their activity and trying to find them. Our heroes are discussing some alien crash, then the military comes and tries to get them. Why does the Big military guy look like Greg Pabrich. So that explains how they've gotten so close. Then a car chase happens and the Commander (or whoever he is) starts cursing (Spoiler alert, that's not how vulgar this film can get). Then James and his Female friend are playing video games. The people who are in this movie are shown. Next, the black guy asks him where Area 51 is and James responds with between Area 50 and 52 (BECAUSE THAT JOKE HASN'T BEEN USED A MILLION TIMES BEFORE). The military commander traps AVGN, and he talks about playing Top Gun while flying a plane. More of the chase scene happens and we get more cursing, and action scenes with some kind monster Kamen Rider should be fighting, Zombies, and more cursing plus gore. Here's where my mixed feelings kick in, Why is there so much stuff Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer should be doing. Then more action and title card. The nerd yaks (OH HOW SUBTLE, STAY CLASSY JAMES), ending the trailer.
You know, this really isn't that good, sure I'm going to give this a fair chance (because some of the worst movies ever had great trailers, and some of the best movies ever had terrible trailers), but I really wanted to like this trailer. But I will give James this, at least he tried, I give this 2 ET cartridges out of 4.
This better be a Kickass movie for all I care, Just saying.
