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.

    Includes:
  • Over 30 minutes of special features
  • Original trailer
  • Additional interview with Gary Gygax
  • Gary Gygax tour of D&D history
  • Cast and Crew footage
  • Uncensored additional 6 street interviews

Humorous and Educational

*****

I thought this was a well designed and highly informative look at all aspects of the gaming community and how the media portrays us.

mediocre

**( )( )( )

Sound quality is a serious issue in the street interview segments. Inclusion of key personalities in the field (both pro- and anti-RPG types) help provide a snapshot of the world of RPGs at present. The film doesn't 'flow' well, never builds, doesn't seem to have any message to it. Could have benefited from narrator voice.


Best... gaming documentary... ever...

*****

I was impressed how much it covered, and the way it covered it. The stuff with Gygax is awesome.

Uber Movie

***( )( )

This movie pulls no punches and tells the ugly, goofy, wacky, awefully wonderful truth about gamers of all kinds.

ALL HAIL GYGAX. ALL HAIL the GRAND MASTER DUNGEON MASTER!!!

Make a saving throw vs. silly or laugh for 90 minutes.

See Real Dungeon. See Erik Mona in a chainmail bikini.
