geek Rocky [Balboa]

5 years 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)

"An excellent documentary on a rivalry between two players who want to beat one another's score on the classic Donkey Kong arcade machine. The mullet haired Billy Mitchell had held the word record score for the game since 1982 until a guy called Steve Wiebe taped his game on his own machine in his garage and beat Mitchell's score. Steve is an outsider to the video gaming community whilst Billy is a legend and all his minions are doing anything to try and stop Steve from breaking their master's re"

" I should have something witty to put here, but yeah, it's a movie about Donkey Kong. So this hooked me in. I know, I know sounds stupid but it has good guys, villains and a conspiracy theory. Laugh at me after you watch and start getting engrossed on a totally preposterous topic"

"18th January, from hard drive There been a lot of praise for this documentary and while The King of Kong is really good, it's not the revelation critics have been saying it to be. The subject is certainly different and although I do play video games from time to time and occasionally watch speed runs of old NES or SNES titles, even I found parts of the film quite alienating. It's unbelievable that some people have the strength and determination to beat the world record at a game that's over 30 "
