VIDEO GAME FAN/MOVIE FAN
ZIMMS | deadfield | 12/16/2006

"Yeah, it is pretty bad. But, since I am a video game collector (and movies) I am going to keep this in my collection. There's good nudity (but it's mostly the sme 2 girls) and there are some funny parts (that actually made me laugh). But, then again there are some really bad parts (where I actually had to fast forward), for example the court scene. It is great to see the old games (they actually had a pretty good collection in that arcade; or was it a studio?; or maybe it was the studio they used for Starcade?). The giant animated pac-man for the scene dissolves was a great idea. The music was pretty bad except for the title song (that song rocks!). The acting was pretty bad. And as for the dvd itself the picture is very, very dark. It was really hard to see some stuff. And it is only full-screen. The sound is quiet. And there are no subtitles. Extras are only a couple trailers. Cover art is pretty bad (the original poster is much better). That "joystick" on the cover doesn't even look like an Atari VCS controller (more like those cheap tv games controllers). I do like the legs with the heels though. So, it is pretty good for a nostalgic picture. If only they made the dvd with better care. There's not much static though (it does say "digitally remastered" on the cover). Like I said this is a keeper, except I'm not sure if I will watch it again."

Oh the memories!!! A fun little 80's exploitation gem finall

"What a great little gem of a film!!! Greydon Clark's 80's exploitation flick starring the one and only Joe Don Baker(Walking Tall,Mitchell,Final Justice,Cape Fear,Goldeneye) is finally on DVD!!! My VHS of this film wore out ions ago so I was thrilled find this classic now on DVD!!! If you like classic video game footage along with good comedy and nice heaping of T&A for good measure,than this movie is for you!!! Yes this is a low budget independent film,so the image and sound quality are a but rough,but I believe that's part of it's "charm",to clean it up too much would ruin the "feel" of the film!!! A true blast from the past!!! PS,If only "Tilt" (the pinball movie,NOT the TV show!) were available on DVD,hey maybe one day!,until then we now have this clasic to enjoy again!!! Two thumbs up!!! Way Up!!! Five stars!!! A+"
