Wreck-It Ralph: Hollywood Reporter Review

I know there has been much talk in class about Disney (and co-Pixar) new movie Wreck-It Ralph, and one of the first reviews came out today from the Hollywood Reporter.

I know I was skeptic at first, but from what the review says, it seems like a polished road video game movie rather than a reboot of Toy Story in a different environment (what I was skeptic about).

I still fully support a class field trip to see this.

  1. I, too, support a class field trip to see this movie.

    This movie does a great job [I'm assuming, based on the trailer] at representing an array of characters from previous video games. Some of these characters come from games such as Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sugar Rush, Hero's Duty and of course, Fix-It Felix, Jr.

    The main story line includes Wreck-It Ralph and his struggle to find his identity as a video game villain, and finding out why he would not be a good "hero".

    As with many movies, a video game counterpart is released in conjunction or shortly after the movie is released. A counterpart will be released for the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS and will be a story extension to the film. It will be an arcade style game with side-scrolling.

    Overall, this video hints on a lot of what we have been learning about the past few weeks and is a great example for defining many of these terms.
