Editorial Reviews

Hilariously entertaining, NERDCORE RISING introduces a new wave of hip-hop to the world called 'Nerdcore' where computer obsesses geeks bust rhymes about the hard knock life of nerdom. The gut-busting comedy follows MC Frontalot, the 'Godfather of Nerdcore' on his first national tour where the roots of the genre, the dorky complexities of its artists, and one MC's fight for nerd stardom is revealed. Featuring Weird Al Yankovic, Prince Paul, Jello Biafra, Brian Posehn among other nerdcore artists and commentators - this is your chance to embrace your inner geek. Being nerdy has never been so cool!

I enjoyed this documentary about the inventor of nerdcore hip-hop on his first tour. A little bit of bad language but not excessive and usually appropriate to the situation - I would let a kid 12+ watch this. If you've ever been to a Con (Comic-Con, or a Star Wars Con), you will relate. These are the people that were the A/V club in High School and spent their time playing D&D or Magic the Gathering - now they are rapping and getting some recognition for it.

Pretty funny and a good way to look into your kids' world if you are the parent of the type mentioned above.

Nerdcore Rising was an fun adventure for nerds and non nerds alike. I showed this to my friends on our movie night and everyone had a good time. It's good to see more nerds like myself taking pride and even better to get the story out of an up and comming music genre. Nerdcore Ho!

My producer sent me a link for the trailer to this movie and I was intrigued. The movie is a great inspiration for any muscian embarking on their first tour. The interaction between the guys is priceless. It shows that Frontalot loves his fans. I even enjoyed the segment where they interviewed people who didn't like the performance. It definately gave it an unbiased feel and the willingness of the director to show that this wasn't a fluff piece. A great purchase for anyone who enjoys music, especially the behind the scenes portion.

"Nerdcore Rising" should be required viewing for anyone interested in social commentary. Every so often a documentary expertly defines a subculture, the way the book "Speed Tribes" did for 1990s Japan or "Roger and Me" explored America's industrial decline. If you want to learn about this unusual, supremely hidden corner of Americana, this is for you. Bottom line, it sets the bar a whole lot higher for anyone claiming to be a 'pop culture expert'.
