I have to be honest with you and tell you that this is my first movie review I have ever done. The King of Arcades is such a great film I had to write a review about it! I love this documentary for what it is about (Arcades), its shows the passion, heart and dedication of the people who made the Arcade what it is today, you may take it for granted when you walk into an arcade and put a quarter into a machine, but this film shows you a different point of view and makes you realize that its more then just a game, its a way of life, family and love. Richie Knucklez true passion for arcades is unbelievable, not only is he the King of Arcades but also is the Doctor of Arcades, he takes what was old and make them new. Thank you Dr. Knucklez for bringing new life into these old arcades and showing everyone young and old especially my kids what an Arcade is.
