Title: Wreck-It Ralph
Directed By: Rich Moore
Synopsis: Ralph is not your average joe; he serves as the “bad guy” in the arcade game Fix-it Felix. After the game he shares with Felix Jr. celebrates its 30th Anniversary and Ralph isn’t invited, he finds just how people don’t appreciate him. Finding that he doesn’t want to be a bad guy anymore he sets off to win a medal in order to prove those that see him as bad wrong.
Review: This is one of my favorite newer Disney films. Not only is this movie about fictional games but we also get to see a lot of traditional game characters like Pac-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. I love how Disney has been branching out from the traditional love at first sight bit; well, at least where the main character is concerned. I love how they define the older games as a bit stop action animated with lower graphics and then the newer games with “HD”. This movie has a lot of feel good moments and the voice actors really voice their characters well and after finishing the movie there is no one else I could see in those roles. Jane Lynch plays a no nonsense soldier, she always seems to play the same rough and tough type roles. The script appeals to both young and old and will have you repeating some of the silly lines, such as Jane Lynche’s “flattery don’t charge these batteries” or Sarah Silverman’s “enjoying your little tantrum, diaper baby?” The last is my favorite line and I seem to annoy my five year old daughter with this line when she has one of her fits. I really enjoyed this movie and I believe you will too.
