A few nights ago, GOOD hosted a screening of a movie called King of Kong, which is opening in select cities tomorrow. The screening was great, and after we retired to Dave & Buster's to earn copious tickets and then purchase oversized stuffed animals for our significant others. The most important note of the night though, was that at Dave & Buster's Steve Wiebe, a humble man from Washington state, got to the final screen of Donkey Kong, just the fourth time this has ever happened in public.
If that doesn't mean anything to you, then you need to see the movie (you can watch the trailer here). In fact, everyone needs to see the movie, as it's truly amazing (we're wouldn't just say that, it's really, truly amazing). It's an incredibly touching and moving story of one man's quest to be the best at something; it's really a beautiful distillation of the American dream. You should go out and support it if you can find it near you. Don't like video games. Doesn't matter. If you have a heart, you should see it.
