What a fun night at the cinema!
I was fortunate to be invited to a preview screening of the satirical movie, "Fanboys", at the Dendy, Newtown, courtesy of this weekend's SupaNova Convention and my contest-winning friend, Karen.
Essentially, it's a very funny coming-of-age "road trip" film featuring a group of dorky, "Star Trek"-hating, basement-dwwelling, "Star Wars" trilogy-loving fanboys who have tired of the lengthy delay required until George Lucas decided to make the prequel, "Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace". They re-hatch an old high school plan to invade the Lucasfilm production ranch, and earn themselves a sneak peak at the the rough cut of the new movie.
Sadly for them, and especially for one adult fanboy they meet (who has already tattooed the up-and-coming disaster, Jar Jar Binks, on his back), the sneak preview they so desire may not answer their cravings in the ways they imagine.
Lots of crazy celebrity cameos, including William Shatner as himself (Hey, isn't he Mr No-Cameos-Ever?), and some very funny and memorable one-liners.
