Film Friday: the King of Kong

Nothing to do with the original King Kong, this documentary looks at the competition between two video game fans to become world champion of classic 80's arcade game, Donkey Kong! This was recently recommended to us and it was pretty entertaining. Steve Wiebe ("the nice guy") claims he has broken the reigning champion's score set in the 80's (Billy Mitchell - the mean arch enemy) but Mitchell has other ideas. The film is full of interviews with slightly geeky gamers and has a lot of funny moments to boot.
