I like this indie comedy, as I actually laughed at it. The lead actor is fantastic at playing a socially clueless film savant. This guy epitomizes geek, moreso than he resembles any cinephiles I know. I wish this guy were real, as he can do "six degrees of kevin bacon" in any number of degrees and with virtually anyone you can think of. He also has an exact memory of scenes, so he'd be really good to say to: "Have you seen this type of scenario before?" and then he would state in chronological order any movies containing such a scene, and probably even the minute/second mark where the scene begins and ends. Basically, Scotty epitomizes what all of us here are doing: saying "this movie is awesome because..." and posting it to the internet in hopes someone will find it worthwhile. The primary difference, however, is that you probably don't know a fraction of what he does about movies, but you do know about some things that are not film-related. Like Scotty, you probably do subsist off of cereal, have lists for all your fav directors, and you know that a widescreen aspect ratio is superior to a 4:3 AR as the latter "compromises the director's vision". You've also probably been to a party, had a beer, smoked a splif, or talked to an attractive sexual partner, but Scotty hasn't, so he is accidentally forced into a world where he does experience these things after he loses his video store job. This is a specific (and subjective) positive: throughout the movie, we get to see (from behind) Scotty wanking into his sink several times to indicate plot development, and each time a little more ass and skin gets shown, the actor does have a very doable bum and for the last shot we finally get a better glimpse at convulsing crack.
This movie is on netflix autowatch, so if you're in a mood for a (funny) comedy or want to be reminded
of some great movies you have yet to watch, check out Film Geek, but beware that the ending is not a typical indie downer.
