I could not be happier with the way that went.

what made this movie GREAT was how it documents such a small, pointless endeavor into what, to the people in it, is the MOST AMAZING and THRILLING pinnacle of human existence.

The "kill screen coming up folks" scene does this very well. I'm sure the thousands of cars that drove by Fun Spot contained people who were either unaware of this event or unaware of a "kill screen" on Donkey Kong...or even cared.

Plus, you grow to really like Steve Wiebe and really hate Billy Mitchell.

now that I know what it is I still don't care

Camonk - 2009-05-19
I could maybe care less, but ironically I'd have to exert myself, which might mean I cared more. So it's a paradox and shit.

Camonk has just poignantly demonstrated the "absurdity" Albert Camus had spent his entire literary career exploring.

You know, even more important than "Fuck Billy Mitchell" is the very important statement of "Fuck Walter Day!" (him being the guy in the referee shirt)

It's one thing to have the obnoxious asshole with the America tie who is desperate to maintain some sort of bizarro-fame, but it's problematic when the governing body is actually that biased and plays such clear favorites. Essentially, the whole thing wouldn't have even been a problem if Walter Day hadn't been such a bought-out cunt.

i dunno. i kind of saw it as Walter being sort of a pushover, but always with the best interests of the game in mind. Billy Mitchell just took advantage of the guy's gaping insecurities (which happens to be a prerequisite for "Video Game Referee") and I thought that made it even sweeter when Mitch ate Weibe's shit.

in conclusion: Walter = Sympathetic Loser
Billy = Shit-Eating Prick

great movie

Things I learned from this movie:

- People are spending years of their lives perfecting their technique on a video game I played for about 2 hours on a ColecoVision 25 years ago.

- A video game world record organization exists, but they will accept old beat up VHS tapes as proof of your performance.

Too bad someone didn't pull the plug right before the golden moment.

It amuses me endlessly that all these guys were replaced by Japanese arcade players who spend their entire lives dedicated to getting world records in 2d shooters.

I don't really buy the story that the film makers greatly distorted the truth to get a good story. There's only so much ridiculousness that can be explained away by context.
Cleaner82 - 2009-05-20
Would you say that the story that purports the story was greatly distorted is greatly distorted?

Bozo - 2009-06-22
I live about 20 minutes from that place.

I simply love this movie.
