When I was a kid in the 80s I'd go to Butlins with my family, be given £1 and make it last a day, playing Gorf, Centipede and all of the other classic games. I dreamt of being a pro gamer but didn't think it was a real job! This film charts the challenge to beat the Donkey Kong score. It is a real David vs Goliath story, made all the more interesting in the fact it's a documentary (I have to say a few times I wondered if it was a hoax). If you have any interest in 80s arcade games you will be hooked, it is fascinating to get an insight in to the lives of the people who are truly addicted to the games, even after 20 years. It will also make you realise why you couldn't beat Donkey Kong all those years ago! My fave moment is the guy telling epople there is a "Kill Screen" coming up - he has a passion which skirts on the psychotic!
Well worth watching, plenty of nostalgic moments. Just try to avoid shouting "Get a life" at the screen!
