Director Brad Jones, known on the internet as The Cinema Snob, has released his fourth film online, which I have waited a whole year to see, and since I have been practically watching it on a loop for the past twelve hours, I thought I’d share it with all of you online.  I’m hoping the movie really takes off among the gaming circles, it’s a great film, which is not suprising given it wasn’t made by Hollywood.

Game Boys is a hilarious feature-length comedy about a bunch of twenty somethings who are obsessed with the past, and continue to play the games of their youth.  They need 8-bits, and not much else.

Here’s the official blurb about the movie:

“Scott and Ray are two old school video game geeks who spend the majority of their days playing Nintendo and reminiscing about the 80’s. But when Scott is dumped by his girlfriend, the two devise a plan to take Scott’s mind off of the drama. With the help of their friend Steve, the boys seek out the rare Atari porno game “Custer’s Revenge” in an attempt to hold a contest to see who can get past 5000 points, all while Scott desperately tries to woo the attention of Sally, the beautiful game store employee.”

Here’s the official trailer.

You can watch the full movie, completely free of charge, on Brad Jones’s website, here.
