King of Kong

I seriously loved this movie. And I feel weird saying that. It’s about video games. Classic video games. Donkey Kong.. But I really got into it. I found myself routing for the underdog and hating the hero whom everyone praised. I think Billy Mitchell is one of the great villains in film. He was so evil and manipulative without ever seeming like a bad guy. And Steve Wiebe was the exact opposite. He just wanted credit where credit was due, but didn’t want to ruffle any feathers. I don’t want to give anything away in case you see this, but it’s such a great film, and you should check it out. It’s exciting and unnerving and happy and sad. And, again, it’s about Donkey Kong. Who knew?

    I thought it was great. So much drama, you’d think it was scripted. Those geeks are freaking mean.
