Netflix Movie Review!
Tonight I stumbled upon a film called “Videogame High School.” The Netflix user rating gave this movie four stars, so my curiosity was peaked.
This movie almost has everything I would ask for in a film, there’s action, romance, and excellent special effects. The only thing that I found lacking was the script. There are moments where I was blown away by the writing, when only two seconds later I would find myself drowning in a pool of awkward.
So the story starts off with a teenager and his group of friends playing video games. And through a series of completely relatable coincidences, he ends up owning the highest ranked FPS student in the VGHS. Days later he is offered a place to attend the Video Game High School, thus begins the journey for the next two hours of your life (if you can make it past all of the awkwardness).
What I loved the most about this movie is that it had a Top Gun feel to it throughout it’s two hours and fourty minute span, and the nostalgia. Oh my word the nostalgia.
Video games were a huge part of my childhood, so huge that I actually thought to myself, “What if there were a school where all that I learned was how to play videogames?” And here is my answer.
So if you played videogames in your youth and want a good nostalgia trip, I would highly recommend this movie to you. I understand why this film recieved 4/5 stars. Although situations got uncomfortable at times, the other elements just work beautifully.
Just for the record, this is my first written movie review.. ever. Thanks for reading!
