kong king

When it is wicked hot outside and you have no AC, what do you do? Why, the movies of course. And what a lucky choice...King of Kong is a *great* documentary. It has all the classic story elements; good guys, bad guys, intrigue, conflict, redemption, etc. I was watching a show on Hong Kong Cinema the other night talking about how all Kung Fu movies have the same plot (school v. school, one person wrongs the other, then revenge is sought). This fit that mold somewhat as well, but it was a fabulously crafted story and I shed a tear at the end. Highly recommended even if you don't like classic video games. It isn't about the games, it is about the people. Hmm...let me write that down...
