Default 'Fanboys' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed the Canadian Import of 'Fanboys.' This movie is like a Blu-ray Jar Jar Binks. Any questions? Video is okay, audio is okay, no extras to be found. This one is for fanboys only.

Full review here:

So I take it this is the Kyle Newman version, not the re-cut Steven Brill version?

I don't know if I've ever disagreed with a review here more than this one. I really enjoyed the movie. I guess that makes me a "fanboy".

The reviewer really lost me here: "Trekkies (the one creature lower than a 'Star Wars' fan. That's right Trekkies, suck it.)". I don't know, "Boss", my bitch just made well over $370 million at the global box office, after 43 years in the public sphere, while your bitch is a lowly cartoon on the CN after only 32.

^^ Oh, snap!

I'll rent this since I'm also a pretty big Star Wars fan (I don't own any toys... okay, one but thats it)

This movie sounds kind of depressing though- The kid's dying wish is to see Episode I, and I assume he actually sees the movie at the end. I mean, c'mon, the movie was a big enough letdown without someone counting on it being their last great experience before death.

no clue, i know the studio cut, removed the cancer completely, but that was before the film was released, so the cut without the cancer has not been seen.

motorhead: there is more to it then just seeing episode I, as the last great experience, well you have to see it, i dont want to ruin anything.
