|Title:||The King of Kong|
|08.19.07||Alamo South Lamar|| King of Kong with Donkey Kong expert Steve Weibe and Twin Galaxies founder Walter Day in attendance! It's so great that Picturehouse bought this movie and are releasing it in theaters. It's really one of the best docs I've seen in a long time so it's great to see sold-out line-out-the-door audiences waiting to see it. Such a great doc.|
Kayla's Donkey Kong cabinet cookie sculpture was awesome too.

SXSW Day Two. This is a really well-made and enjoyable doc about two guys: the dude who set the Donkey Kong high score in 1982 and the challenger trying to beat him. These guys are such great characters and represent such archetypal roles that the story plays out in like a video game nerd (nerd, not geek. these guys are losers for the most part) myhtological epic. OK maybe not THAT grandiose, but it's a really engaging story and you really get behind the main character. It's filled with great moments, great characters, and great drama. Really loved this one.
