Hey Gang! So, I know this is not a movie review site, but I saw this documentary this weekend and I thought to myself, "Self, what is GEEKIER than full grown men rallying for the title original Donkey Kong high score?" The answer? Probably not much. :)
This film just came out on DVD, and I got a hold of it through a friend of a friend, and I had no idea what I was getting into when I popped the DVD in yesterday. What ensued was a wonderful story of good vs. evil...seemingly. You'll have to see it for yourself and decide, but I love the way the characters are set up (and remember, this is a real documentary, not a spoof documentary, but sometimes it almost seems like a spoof because the characters are such caricatures of stereotypes), and I love how the film ends. It's really interesting that there's a group of people who certify high scores in video games, too. Here's a link to the website for the film:
I highly recommend this if you can get it on Netflix or however you watch movies.
Now for some Housekeeping items: I'm in production on the "Geek Girl Goes Green" video podcast...than you all for your suggestions and emails! I've got plenty of great content and ideas for this one. If you have a last-minute idea for how to be technologically green (remember to think outside the box here!), please send me an email or better yet, send me a VIDEO QUESTION as an attachment to email@example.com and I'll make sure to include your video in my next video podcast!
