Memories made...
15 February 2017 | by raptor2569See all my reviews

Kurt and his crew did an amazing job with this film. It makes you miss the days of the dark arcades. With the flashing lights & surrounding sounds of those towering Arcade Machines as a child. The friendships you make and rivals you fought over the years. I miss those days and this film brought me back. I never got the chance to visit The China Town arcade, but I was in so many others in my area. Each arcade always had the same feel that I miss and enjoyed as a kid. Made so many great memories there. If you love the arcade era then this film is definitely worth the play. I hope I see more of films from Kurt and his team. Keep up the awesome work!
