Video Game Geeks Make Good Movie Stars

Simpleton movie review:

I know I am about 4 years late on this, but I just got around to watching the movie The King of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters (2007) this past week and thought it was a great movie.  It’s a documentary about these two guys who are supposedly the best Donkey Kong players in the world.  You know, that old school arcade game.

But the movie goes a little deeper than just that.  One of the guys is this down to earth family man who has had some tough breaks in life.  The other guy is an arrogant, cocky prick who at least seems to be afraid to go head to head with the other guy.

They really portray the two as a good guy and a bad guy.  Obviously movie producers can spin things anyway they choose, so hard to tell if these guys fit into those stereotypical roles as well as we’re led to believe…  but it doesn’t matter.  It works.  The movie is very good and you really start to find yourself rooting for this dude.

I know it sounds nerdy… and yeah, there are some nerds in it…  particularly the guys who idolize the “bad guy” but the movie is put together very well and absolutely worth watching!  Two Simple thumbs up here!


Guess what…  

I need your help.  I want to do another ASK SIMPLE DUDE advice blog post, and need some questions from you.  I’ve done this a couple times and the questions you ask are awesome!

i’ll cover any topic.  Sex, food, work, movies, music… pretty much anything other than politics or religion.  No, not because I am avoiding controversy, those topics are just BORING.  

So leave your questions either in comments on this post, or if you’d prefer to remain anonymous you can email me:

Thanks Simpletons!
