A documentary that shows the evolution of video games and the one man (Richie Knucklez) that continues to keep the classic arcade games relevant
WOW. Such a great movie. I was involved in the film, so I have an idea of how hard the cast and crew worked to make this documentary possible. Sean brings it all together to make the documentary not only informative but personal as well. Whether you are a video game novice, or an expert you will enjoy this film. Experts will appreciate the nostalgia and the novices will learn a thing or two about the evolution of video games. If you're not interested in video games, that's okay too. Another theme of the film is following your dreams. Everyone has a dream and the King of Arcades (Richie Knucklez) isn't afraid to go out there and make it happen. Richie is on the never ending quest to keep Classic Arcade Games relevant in a world full of Wiis, Xboxes and Playstations. One thing is for sure. It ain't easy.
