As a side note, the video and audio quality are superb. The movie picture quality looked like a Blu-ray disc and not a DVD.
If you enjoy arcade classics or want to see a movie about a guy following his dreams you need to watch this movie. Highly recommended!
If you love video games, you must watch this film to understand how video games got their start and what drives many to collect and restore these 30+ year old games. It really is a labor of love.
This film has a lot of great footage of the games, the founders of arcade gaming, and world record high-score holders.
This DVD chronicles the life of Richie Knucklez, one of many people who operate and restore classic arcade games, aka the arcade cabinets that you used to see in the mall, movie theaters and in stand alone arcades during the 1980's. Since I am very passionate about this subject I absolutely had to own this DVD and jumped on it when it was offered for a low price. I can say this unique DVD was well worth my money, and I was totally immersed in it while watching it. This isn't the type of DVD you can rent at the library so its well worth owning. I don't purchase many DVD's for myself these days but I can say this one is worthy of my very small DVD collection. The passion that Richie exhibits for restoring classic game through thick and thin is exceptional. I absolutely love to hear stories like this about someone who is so passionate about a subject.
