Director: Seth Gordon

It's the archetypal good-versus-evil film, except that it's about two video-game-obsessed, middle-aged nerds, not sword-wielding hero and a devilish monster.

Simply about two guys' shared desire to pull off the highest King Kong arcade score of all time, the riveting and often hilarious King Of Kong is a purebred underdog story that's just as appealing for non-gamers as it is for hardcore players. It's also home to one of the decade's greatest villains: the delusional and seriously unlikeable Billy Mitchell, whose mullet and unhealthy self-image make him the kind of douchebag you'd pay a quick grip to snuff in the mug.
