saw this movie this afternoon and was very surprised by this - it came across as a 'if Judd Apatow and Terrence Malick made a 90 minute movie about three teenagers building a house in the woods' - recommended (if you also liked 'Moonrise Kingdom' you'll appreciate and enjoy this film's charm too).

I was volunteering at a festival, standing outside the theater where this was finishing up, and was asked if I was the director by an organizer, who was about to set up a Q&A. So...there's my connection to this flick.

Some of the humor is a bit silly, but a damn unique film film in today's film marketplace. It's indie, but obvious that great care went into the tone and visuals. Lots of nice moments and music touches for those of us who grew up in the 8-bit gaming era.

Nick Offerman offers a good many quotable scenes. I do hope it gets LA and NY support in its limited release this week so that it may have a chance at a wider theatrical run.

just got done watching this and thought it was fantastic. will likely slide into my top 10 of the year. odd that this and MUD share so many similarities (even a key plot point) but are totally different movies.

I really liked this as well. I highly recommend getting this off Netflix or On Demand.

Nick Robinson reminded me of a young Sean Astin.

Biaggio What a character.
