[Movie] The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

Post by billflu » Wed Feb 20, 2008 4:17 am

This movie was excellent, especially if you're into video game speed runs and records (I think they're quite interesting). It actually has a great plot and story behind it. It follows the quest of Steve Weibe and Billy Mitchell to top of the Donkey Kong score board. Check it out and post in here whether you liked it or not. I would say that it's a definite watch!

It's definitely one of my favourites, definitely time well spent if you've ever, uhmn, played video games, err, competitively.. That's it: mandatory viewing for all!!! :)

Can't say I've ever played video games....

Though I have flown all over the world and shot many different life forms in my short 21 years. I've been to the future and the past, and somehow I die but always respawn. I live a crazy life!

I watched it last night. Not what I expected, but good. Since others haven't seen it, can't really talk about it.... I tried to get the "hide" function to work, but couldn't. (help?)

This humorus quote shouldn't give anything away: "Daaaadddd, wipe my butt..... daaadd, stop playing Donkey Kong"

Not even close... I didn't even make it off the first stage :oops:

It's a really cool place though. Lots of old school games; your quarters go a long way.

If you're in that area, definitely make an effort to get there! http://tinyurl.com/4292w4
