I was hoping it was some kind of Tron-esk kind of movie, but… only in dreams… only in dreams.
The guy who played Lucas did not end up well. He reeeeally didn’t.
you know, for a while I was thinking that the critic should have Lucas guest appear on his show. but reading up on what he was up to in his “activities”,.. yeah, I wouldn’t blame Doug if he said no to the idea of Jackey Vinson appearing on the show. lol
I guess he didn’t realize that ‘Now your playing with pedophilia’ was a joke.
actually he’s a pedophile in real life.
Congratulations, you got the joke.
Another movie that I’ve never seen and had never even heard of until first seeing this review. Anyway, I really love the Critic’s responses to Lucas.
Top 3 funniest Critic comments are:
Nintendo: It makes you gay.
Who greenlighted the old man in the speedo?!
Nintendo: It makes you want to touch children.
I remember when I was like 11 or 12 nick was showing and the only scene I saw was the ‘he touched my breast’ scene and just being shocked that they allowed that on TV. I will always think of that when I think of this movie along with Lucas.
Jackey Vinson, Lucas:
Then: Jackey spent a lot of time hyping his skills with the Power Glove, only to fall victim to Jimmy’s stick skills at Video Armageddon. He didn’t act much after ‘The Wizard,’ though an appearance on ‘Law and Order’ would prove to be grave foreshadowing.
Now: We don’t know what Mr. Vinson is doing these days, but we can certainly tell you what he’s not doing: visiting playgrounds. In 2004, he was sentenced to 10 years probation for child molestation, and is now a registered sex offender in the state of New York.
Lucas actually is really good at games. He wasn’t saying the Powerglove was “bad” (as in good), but that it really was so bad. We all know how hard it was to control and how terrible it was with games, so the fact that he was able to beat one of the hardest games ever made at the time using it was meant to show how good he actually was at games.
