Wreck-It Ralph

Saw it over the weekend at Youmacon with a crowd of my fellow nerds and geeks (the perfect people to see it with). Laughed at all the right parts, got most of the references, left the theater happy and satisfied with every intention of seeing it again in the near future. Very proud of Disney for doing their research.

Anyone else seen it? Thoughts, comments, criticisms?


  1. Chloe,

    I just saw it and am doing a post on it.

    In short: best Disney movie of recent. Really good imagining of "back stories" and "code."

    1. I concur. Disney is really getting their act together.

  2. While I haven't seen the movie yet. I really like the question it asks. Often times, whenever I am playing a game, I sometimes drift to an imaginary day dream and wonder what the characters in the game must feel doing the same thing over and over again.
    I absolutely love that this idea is addressed in the movie.
    If also highlights the idea that most arcade based video games are repetition based. Wreck-it-Ralph is stuck in an arcade world and decides to make a run for it.
    You could also look at it as a satire on 'hardcore' gamers and their inability to pull themselves from the screen where they do the same things every day.
