BuboBlog Reviews 'The King of Kong'

Sadly, you won't see many reviews of new movies anymore (unless I can persuade Kelly that it's perfectly okay to bring a 2-week-old to "Tropic Thunder").

I would like to recommend a DVD we saw last night: "The King of Kong." It's a documentary about two men vying for the record score on the classic Donkey Kong arcade game.

The movie was surprisingly funny and touching. And for a documentary, it's amazing how great some of the "dialogue" was. The reigning champion of the game was so un-self-aware that any of his lines could have come straight out of the mouth of Michael Scott. Great stuff.

Rating: Four asterisks (out of four)
