Don't Get Chumpatized

Wanna see a movie that will thoroughly entertain and inspire you? Wanna understand what that title means? Go see "King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters." It's likely playing at an art house or independent theater in your area. First of all it's a documentary about guys who play arcade video games for world record titles. Okay, I know that sounds boring and freakishly nerd-tastic. But this is a story of David and Goliath proportions.
What happens when a sensitive, likable family-man dreams of being the best at Donkey Kong but comes up against the calculating mullet-clad defending world champion? A damn good movie, that's what. Don't just take my word for it, critics love it too.
