For those of you that may not read through TG posts, I noted this interesting thread today. I'm sure the royalty checks will be rolling through Barra's mail box soon!

Can you copyright an INP? I think Barra might have a legal case against the producers :lol

Thanks for posting this Max ... one for the AA album just in case TG does a phoenix like 4 times already ... Centuri if I am not mistaken.

Well actually I also noticed something special ... that person playing is no kid ... it's actually Andrew Barra - yes not "Barrow", like the post says.
These Galaga players check for every detail and competitive edge don't they ... a great find Mr Krogman!

Haha! Not likely. Although I wouldn't say no :lol

I did mean to watch this movie when it came out but after the not so stellar reviews I must have forgotten about it.
Cool to see though. Like when they used Dean's 1.206m game on Big Bang Theory.

Now to get the record back http://donkeykongforum.com/Smileys/default/popcorn.gif

I enjoyed it so much I hired a bus and took all of my staff to see it.

I wouldn't give "reviewers" the cap off my beer - don't be swayed by naysayers.

I didn't know that. I remember the episode and thought Johnny Galecki must have been a closet DK fan or they got someone else to play to that stage (Eminem maybe?) and then subbed him in.

I know what you mean, each Adam Sandler movie seems to get less funny than the one before it. I haven't seen this movie yet, and don't plan to - if they use a hack of an easy game like Galaga instead of BnJ which requires real skill then I'm not interested in watching it :P

I actually like Adam Sandler so am a bit surprised at myself for missing this one.

I would attest that Galaga is easier than BnJ :)

I'm with Homepin on this one. The reviews were so poor I was worried it would be a waste of time.
But hey, it's arcade right! ... so me being the arcade tragic had to watch it.

Took the family and .... it's a very enjoyable movie.
In fact I bought the DVD and watched it several times. For those who were there BITD, it's relevant, fun and the jokes are quite good.
Gad and Dinklage (smaller Mitchell look alike :laugh:) are very funny.

I haven't seen Centipede, Pac-man, Donkey Kong, Robotron, Asteroids, Joust, Galaga, Q*Bert, Dig Dug, Frogger, Arkanoid and many others look this good for ages.
Pull out your coins you slackers, and go watch the movie!

I was a big fan of his earlier stuff, but it just got old the same characters he played and his stupid voices. It could just be me on this one :)

I know that you know I was taking the piss - bugger me if I can play Galaga, or almost any shooter for that matter.
