This one is gonna be short.

I love this film because it gives 'Nerds' a chance to shine. Which hardly happens. Except in the 80's obviously lol.

This film is funny to a certain degree, but compared to the humor we are use to these days, it's kind of dull and cheesy. As for an 80's movie though it's pretty awesome.

I loved the vast types of nerds they had in ... read more

A disappointing movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it has a solid reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. After watching the damned thing, to be honest, since it is such a 80's classic, I was actually expecting something more from this movie. I guess I'm not a big fan of those 80's classic comedies. Indeed, I wasn’t already a huge fan of ‘Animal House’ but it was at least... read more

They're beset with taunting by the jocks of Alpha Beta fraternity, which only worsens when the jocks accidentally burn down their house and are forced toss the freshmen out of the freshmen dorm. To make matters more problematic, Lewis develops a crush on pretty Betty Childs, popular sorority sister and quarterback's girlfriend. Joined by the aptly named Booger and the violin-playing Pointdexter, the nerds soon realize they must form their own fraternity in self-defense. Soon the tables are turne ... (more)

Movies I Watched in May 2021 (33 movies items)

" Date: 5/27/2021 Viewed: HBO Max Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie since I was in Middle School, and I was curious if it still holds up or not. After watching it again as an adult, it didn't hold up very well. Revenge of the Nerds is an average movie at best in my opinion. I get why many Gen Xers love this movie because it was a very popular movie back in the day. However, I feel like the story does not age well because so much has changed since 1984 when it comes to nerd culture. Ner"
