Movie Info

Über Goober focuses on the often-misunderstood, sometimes-controversial, and always-kind-of-geeky world of Gamers. Director Steve Metze examines several different groups including historical miniature gamers, role-players, and those known simply as "LARPers." The film also explores opposition from religious groups, negative media portrayals, and some of the meanest 'man-on-the-street' interviews ever committed to video. Meet the Gamers, learn their exotic language, see their bizarre rituals, gasp at their semi-authentic costumes, and thrill to the painting techniques on their miniatures!

You'll laugh just watching it, and the absurdity is equally apparent to the participants.

While one has to make allowances for its home-movie quality, this little movie's affectionately lowbrow treatment of an often-maligned subculture has a certain homely charm.

The whole documentary may seem silly or boring to non-gamers, and you're probably supposed to laugh with them, not at them.

Why the Godfather of gaming was exiled to the 'extras' on the DVD is a mystery to me. Outside of that, it's a decent flick.
