A few weeks back I finally caught Wreck It Ralph, and can say it is one of the most heart-warming movies I've seen in a long time.

Wreck It Ralph (2012) follows the adventures of the video game character "Wreck It Ralph" (John C. Reilly), who's the villain of the game Fix It Felix Jr. which is a clone of Donkey Kong. Ralph is tired of being a hated outsider living in a garbage dump, so he goes to another video game to get a medal and be a hero. On the way, he visits the racing game Sugar Rush and the annoyingly glitchy Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman). Fix‑It Felix (Jack McBrayer) and Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from Hero's Duty, head into the game to find Ralph and save all the games in the arcade from the evil Cybugs.

All Pixar movies are great (except for Cars 2 of course) but this one reminded me a lot of Toy Story. Besides bringing back great memories of classic retro games like Q Bert and Street Fighter, it also had a great internal logic for what happens behind the video game screen. 

Update: Tony reminded me that this movie was made by Disney, not Pixar. Go Disney!
The voice acting is great and all the characters have a lot of life, especially the childishly hilarious Sarah Silverman. 

Visually, the movie is astonishingly beautiful, especially the saccharine world of Sugar Rush. 


After the movie, I wanted to run to the arcade!

I loved this movie a lot, which is why I'm excited about this giveaway.

I might enter that but I don't have a blu-ray player. Anyway, I should see that at some point just for all the old video game references.

I took my kids to see it a few weeks ago. What a fantastic movie! It is definitely worth owning.

Looks and sounds exciting, I'm curious why Ralph's crew is running scared. Great cartoon image.

Tony Laplume said...

This wasn't done by Pixar.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Totally right Tony! It just goes to show Disney is moving up.

Maurice Mitchell said...

They're running for a good reason SpacerGuy! Watch and see.

I was too Colin. But it won 5 "Annie" awards, so maybe that makes up for it.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I think it's a really fun movie for kids Jessica. I wonder how young is too young for this film?

Maurice Mitchell said...

That's one of the best parts Pat. Even the fake games are fun to watch.

Maurice Mitchell said...

You never know Jeremy. There are plenty of ways to win.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Alex, it is sad. I haven't seen Brave, but is it really better?
