Quick Reviews – Kong, Bones, and Dr. Horrible!

The King of Kong: A firstful of Quarters (4/5)

I am usually a little weary of documentaries like this one for fear that they will manipulate the facts to make the story seem more dramatic.  According to the internet, this is no exception.  There are some inaccuracies, so you might want to take the story with a grain of salt.  However, I do suggest you watch this film.  The story of Steve Wiebe trying to become the world champion at Donkey Kong is great.  The movie is surprisingly suspenseful, and will keep you glued to your seat.  A must see for video-game enthusiasts everywhere!

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog (4.5/5)

This is a great movie.  It will have you laughing your head off and tapping your toes to the wonderful music.  But this isn’t just a goofy comedy, it has a serious side too.  The performances are great, especially Neil Patric Harris.  The story really pulls you in and makes you care about the characters.  This is a wonderful film for anyone, but especially for us super-hero loving freaks.

The Lovely Bones (4.5/5)

A little girl is walking home from school one day, when a man approaches her…he lures her away and brutally murders her.  She watches from heaven as her family tries to cope, and tries to lead them to her killer.  This sounds like a very dark movie, and it is at times…but it is also uplifting at times, and occasionally funny.  The story almost never goes how you expect it to, something that is great at times, and bad at other times.  This movie will keep you on your toes, without being confusing.  I would recommend it to almost anyone.

    King of Kong still remains one of my favorite movies, glad you enjoyed it. Still need to check out Dr. Horrible, I’ve heard some great things.

    However, The Lovely Bones was a film I really didn’t enjoy at all. I had a problem with how they worked the story in that film and how they kept switching the tone back and forth back and forth between a literal heaven and a figurative hell on earth. Some character choices didn’t make sense to me and it just sorta felt cheesy, however I am glad you liked it.
