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?
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".
