Did you ever see this documentary? It is quite interesting, and leaves me rooting for Steve Weibe, not Billy Mitchell. This movie actually made me wish I had a DK arcade cabinet at home. After seeing the movie on a satellite channel, I actually picked up the DVD at a Blockbuster that was going out of business. Strangely, I have not ever watched it again since I bought the disc version.

Did anybody else enjoy this movie and its ability to bring back arcade memories form the 80's?

Yes! Very much!

When they went into Steve Weibe's garage to check his machine when he was not home. I thought I hope he wipes Billy Mitchell's score off the books.

I think that Mitchell ended up regaining the record after that movie came out, and last I heard, some Japanese guy is the current DK world record holder. I was never that good at the arcade DK, but remember playing VCS Kong for hours once I got "into the zone".

Same here my quarters never lasted very long on Donkey Kong or Donkey Kong Junior.

As a kid I had King Kong first and then later Donkey Kong for the 2600 so it didn't seem like a bad game when I finally played it for the first time.

I mean it had two screens which I thought was really cool.
