geek Rocky [Balboa]

5 years, 2 months ago at Dec 16 23:00
Com uma edição nada sutil mas igualmente esperta e cativante, a disputa pelo maior score num arcade é contada sob um drama de superação tal, que o documentário é praticamente uma variante nerd de “Rocky [Balboa]” (1976). De um lado do ringue, Billy Mitchel, microempresário egocêntrico e mimado que apóia sua arrogância no título que recebeu na adolescência, de melhor jogador de Don... read more

Description: In the early 1980s, legendary Billy Mitchell set a Donkey Kong record that stood for almost 25 years. This documentary follows the assault on the record by Steve Wiebe, an earnest teacher from Washington who took up the game while unemployed. The top scores are monitored by a cadre of players and fans associated with Walter Day, an Io ... (more)

" Don't get chumpatized.Story/Writing: ★★★★ (4/5) Great storytelling. I know that this is edited to make the "rivalry" seem like more than it is, but that is part of what makes this movie great. Acting: N/A I don't know if I should/could rate acting here? I think (I, obviously, don't know, because I don't know any of these people) everyone in this is pretty much just being themselves. I'm sure they hammed it up a bit for the camera, but that's expected. Visuals: ★★☆ (2.5/5) Nothin"

"First viewing I was surprised how much I enjoyed this documentary about a rivalry between two dudes for the official world record high score on Donkey Kong. It also made me want to revisit this: "

"11-12.9.10 Todella hyvä dokumentti missä kaksi raavasta miestä ovat pyhittäneet elämänsä Donkey Kongin pelaamiselle ja toistensa ennätysten rikkomiselle. Elokuvaan oli saatu hieno hyviksen ja pahiksen välinen vastakkainasettelu. Välillä juolahti mieleen, että onko nuo tyypit nyt ihan tosissaan, onko tämä totta mutta kyllä netistä löytyy tälle vahvistus niin uskotaan sitten. Everybody knows that the dice are loaded Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed Everybody knows tha"
