    That is so strange. I visited the site yesterday to see if there was a reason that you hadn’t done a review in a while…and the day before that, I watched this movie.

    Welcome back!

    Clearly this movie spoke to Michael the same way it spoke to me. Ah I remember those days of going to the arcade…

    I had no more fun in the movies in 2007 than at King of Kong.

    I’ve talked more about King of Kong than any other 2007 flick.

    There is no DVD I want more than King of Kong.

    And it’s a freaking documentary.

    And it’s a real documentary – not a Sicko411 kinda thing.

    Classic ageless story told in a very specific (very specific) moment in time.

    Brilliant.

    I’ve heard so many good things about this but still haven’t got round to watching it. I used to be an arcade freak when I travelled to seaside resorts in the UK, so I know I should love this…
