Über Goober—A Film about Gamers (DVD)
Über Goober(based on 5 ratings)
Über Goober focuses on the often-misunderstood, sometimes-controversial, and always-kind-of-geeky world of Gamers. Director Metze examines several different groups including historical miniatures gamers, role-players, and those known simply as "LARPers" (Live Action Role-Players). The film also explores opposition from religious groups, negative media portrayals ranging from sitcoms to post-Columbine news coverage, 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!
Shot on MiniDV, the film runs 90 minutes. Featured interviews include Dungeons & Dragons creator E. Gary Gygax, televangelist Bob Larson, author Michael A. Stackpole, and cartoonist John Kovalic, along with music by the Great Luke Ski.
