Product Overview

The award-winning, critically acclaimed comedy Film Geek is about one movie nerd's quest to get a life. When Scotty Pelk (Melik Malkasian) is fired from his video store job for annoying the customers, he hits rock bottom. But then he meets Niko (Tyler Gannon), a sexy free spirit who just might save Scotty from his hopeless existence. Triumphant and hilarious, Film Geek celebrates the geek in all of us.

Review I suspect Film Geek will hold far more enjoyment for those of us in the business, but it's still a worthwhile comedy. Based in part on director James Westby's own life, Scotty (Melik Malkasian) works (naturally) as a clerk in a video store, runs a web page with zero hits, and can't get a date to save his life...Regardless, there's enough magic here to merit a viewing or two. I'm also curious if Westby, who's now made four low-budget movies starring Malkasian, might have something a little more grandiose in his repertoire. We'll see.

Review Malkasian debases himself with gusto, but the film offers no new insights into a character type we've seen Kevin Smith do far more cleverly on numerous occasions. Westby never provides a reason you should pay to spend 70 minutes with Scotty, but he offers at least a dozen compelling ones not to. Just because lonely nerds masturbate constantly doesn't mean I need to see them do it over and over again. And while it's true that video clerks tend to look down their noses at customers' so-called bad taste, just about anything they might select would provide a less painful viewing experience than this.

Kyle Smith, New York Post The film looks like it cost 10 cents, but a lot of the jokes are gold.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly ...loving and self-aware homage to mouth-breathing boys...
Marc Mohan, Portland Oregonian ...Westby makes excellent use of Portland locations and cinematic references...
