The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews is back – with a competitive edge! In this episode, I’ll be looking at the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, which gives us a fascinating and hilarious glimpse at the cutthroat world of retro arcade competitions. Two champions of the classic game Donkey Kong will face-off but only one can be crowned The King of Kong! We’ll delve into the background of this film, its filmmakers, the origin of the Donkey Kong game itself, and how it put Nintendo on the map. Lastly, I’ll give the DVD my final recommendation.
Recommendation from this episode:
David Rose is the creator of Happy Dragon Pictures and The DVD Shelf. He’s an illustrator, animator, videographer and aspiring billionaire/crimefighter…but still needs more training.
