NINTENDO - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
by: -RoG-

Fred Savage's finest hour.

The Wizard was a movie that represented the dream of every kid during that time: to be publicly recognized as the greatest NES game player on earth. It also represents the pinnacle of Fred Savage's movie career. Sure, he starred in the brilliantly written opus "Little Monsters, but it just doesn't compare to "The Wizard". Be sure to keep an eye out for a young Christian Slater as "Nick" in the film too. The Wizard also proved just how strong of a grasp that Nintendo had on us. When they could make us buy tickets to a movie that was basically one giant advertisement for their products, it was pretty obvious they had us by the Goombas.

"I love the Power Glove. It's so... BAD."

Fred and his little brother (the one who has the über gaming skills) set out on a journey to the West Coast to compete against all the other video gamers. I think this movie was partially responsible for my strong desire to relocate out West. But that might be because I still think there's a chance that one day I'll meet Lucas, the badass who wore his mighty Power Glove with pride. I'm still hoping for a director's cut DVD release of "The Wizard" in which Lucas goes absolutely haywire and bludgeons all the other puny competitors to death with his Power Glove. Hey, I can dream can't I?
