On a whim last night the wife and I were looking through the Netflix on-demand queue and we settled on 1989's "The Wizard" with Fred Savage, Beau Bridges and Christian Slater.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the movie opening with (what I am almost 100% sure was) a scene shot right here in Northern Nevada along Highway 50, and then we see nothing other than a gorgeous 1st gen Trooper decked out as a police vehicle!!! I looked at the wife and said, "I like this movie already!"



Turned out to be a pretty decent flick about old school video games, all shot in Northern, NV (Reno included) and California.

So if anyone wants to see what it looks like where I live, and watch a decent flick with some classic video gaming, and a first gen Trooper, check it out!!

:D Bart

Yeah, pretty funny. I was like, "hey, that's Ninja Gaiden" and then they said it and my wife looked at me funny. I proceeded to tell her what all the games were before they said it in the movie...pretty funny....I love old school video games.

Metroid and Super Metroid are my favorite console games of all time.

Yeah, Contra is quality. I don't know, but to me, the percentage of good playable games today vs what came out back in the day is pretty sad. I find most console games totally lame. Then again, I do not like the new breed of games and game play. I do not like RPG and I do not like 3rd person AT ALL and I don't understand FPS games played on consoles with a joypad. Its just unnatural. :lol:
