Free to Play (2014)
Inside the Life of Professional Gamer
Free To Play is a documentary movie made by Valve, Inc (game company) to show life of the professional gamer, in this case Dota 2.
The movie follow the story of 3 professional gamer: Danil "Dendi" Ishutin, Clinton "Fear" Loomis, and Benedict "HyHy" Lim, on their take on the first biggest eSport tournament in the world: The International 2011, with the prize pool of total 1.6 million dollars.
Some say this might be just a long duration "commercial" about the game, of course, maybe Valve want it to be as an extended commercial to promote the product, but nevertheless, this movie also really show the human side of the professional gamer, the struggle with the stereotype that they faced everyday, and their personal lives.
if you are an avid gamer, I'll recommend this any day! 9/10
Room 237 (2012)
First of all I'd like to say that many people had different interpretations and meanings after seeing a movie, I mean, that's why we love seeing movie in first place, as an entertainment and inspirations.
That being said, this documentary is centered along many interpretations on the famous Kubrick's The Shining. I love good movie, The Shining is one of them, but I will never go such length to figuring out every single little details on particular movie, but narrators in this documentary did just that.
The narrators will show you their interpretations on Kubrick's The Shining the way they see it, the way they feel it. The interpretations ranging from the native Indian genocide in the US, Holocaust, even the possibility of the fake moon landing performed by NASA.
I don't know why this documentary generated negative reviews, this is just an interpretations of a movie, and we should take it as such. The variety of the interpretations and the explanation will no doubt open your mind on how the narrators take the movie personally. and that's why I give it 9/10.
