LIVET I 8 BITAR (LIFE IN 8 BITS)
THE WIZARD WANNABE
Oh my god! oooooooh my god! I couldn't believe it when I heard that this movie existed. Life in 8 bits is a Swedish version of the Wizard. This kid J is a complete Nintendo freak and dreams of attending the 8bit Nintendo World Championship where they have to compete against each other in Track & Field 2.... come on! you could've picked a better title than that!.

J receives a ticket for the Championship but then disaster strikes as the championship is being held the same day that his family has their yearly get together.... oh no what to do. It gets even worse after that when his grand dad chops J's hand off with a chainsaw, yes really. So J's world collapses as he made a deal with his girlfriend that he would never ever play videogames again if he lost at the championships, and as he never made it there she trashes all his beloved games, uuuhhh ooooh.

Fortunately for J there's a championship in Asia for disabled people, so J of course heads off to play some Atari Jaguar at that event and his life is complete again.

Seriously though this movie is so cheesy I still feel sad for having wasted my money buying it back in the day, good luck finding a copy today though unless you live in Sweden, oh yeah it has no englisg subtitles either :-)

But what a nice 1 hour and 21 minutes Nintendo commercial, though there's a little Atari Jaguar and PSX in there too.

If picture and sound is a little out of sync... blame YouTube ;-)
