I found this little gem while browsing around the Netflix “Watch Instantly” section. While a documentary about two grown men obsessing over the old school “Donkey Kong” video game doesn’t sound very exciting, I got sucked into it the more I watched. By the end Katherine and I were both sitting at my desk seeing who was going to win in the end. Here is a teaser trailer on YouTube:
Unfortunately the entire movie isn’t available on the Internet for free, but anyone with a Netflix access can visit the following link to order it or choose the “watch instantly” option.
Side note: I’m a big fan of Netflix, but it really rubs me the wrong way that they built their viewer exclusively around Mircosoft’s Internet Explorer. The first time I tried this feature I had to spend a half an hour getting updates for IE and Direct X before the first image appeared on my screen. So I’m giving a Steven Colbert “wag of my finger” to Netflix for not using a cross-browser solution.
