Thursday, I went and caught the last showing of “King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”. What a hilarious movie. It is about basically, the Donkey Kong world record. This guy Billy Mitchell had it in 1982, and this guy is just a real character, like thinks he is the best player ever, just very cocky. Then this guy Steve Wiebe beats his record but there is all the controversy behind it, tons of video game nerds in the movie getting excited over high scores and things like that, just so funny…
It is funny because all of these guys are like in LOVE with Billy Mitchell, and they don’t want him to lose his record, but Steve Wiebe just keeps coming back, and finally they have to accept he is better..
some of the quotes are just great, especially from their little daughter
“Work is for people who can’t play video games”
“Some people ruin their lives to get in there” (talking about the Guinness Book of World Records)
and there are tons of other quotes from the other people in the film that just make you laugh. If you have a chance to see this movie, I recommend it!
