The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
Video game rivalries can be thrilling!
And wow, Billy Mitchell is really made out to be a jerk. Though I read some discussion notes on Wikipedia about how some parts of that stress was manufactured by the director with editing. 2 points being that we never see Billy playing even though he says how important it is to play in public, and that we never see Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe speaking to one another except for a single jab that Billy makes. It gives Billy this total jerk feel. Though I read that they do speak to one another at events. Heh, you can even buy a “Billy Mitchell is a jerk” T-Shirt.
When I first watched Superbad, I thought it was fun and cute. But I recognize now that it is an iconic film. I put it in the rarefied company of films like Napoleon Dynamite, Revenge of the Nerds, Real Genius, and Breakfast Club.
