Well, we all know how almost universally loved Wreck-it Ralph was, with everybody saying it's a classic or a masterpiece and that they can't wait for more, so much so that there was actually anger when Brave won the Academy Award instead of it. But, unfortunately, it's going to be a bit of while before we see another movie about the villain who wanted to be a hero. But, fortunately, in the mean-time to hold us over, we have a similar movie about arcade game character ensembles. It's called Pixels.The movie Pixels is a movie made by Happy Madison Productions, which is a film company run by none other than Adam Sandler. This pretty much the plot. In the year 1982, NASA scientists sent videos and audio waves of our famous arcade game characters to try and make peaceful contact with extraterrestrial life and share our cultures with them, inlcuding those of 80's arcade game characters. Unfortunately, the aliens took the message the wrong way and misinterpreted it as a declaration of war. So, in response, they decide to send real-life video game chracters to attack mankind, and it's up to Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage to save humanity from the rampaging video game characters.
Now, normally I don't really like Happy Madison. Their movies are usually childish and pointlessly raunchy and the only exception I actually liked was the first Paul Blart Mall Cop. (I haven't seen the second one, but I heard it was awful). However, Pixels may actually be added to my exception list, because this movie actually looks cool. Yes, I said it. A movie by Happy Madison Productions actually looks cool. The premise in my opinion is a stroke of GENIUS, and that's what makes me nervous and cautiously optimistic about this movie, because the premise of video games coming to attack us is really cool. It's pretty much Ghostbusters meets Wreck-it Ralph. Especially because Q-Bert, who was in Wreck-It Ralph, is also going to be in this.
But, again, since it's Happy Madison Productions, I'm a bit nervous about it. Because I really, REALLY want this movie to be good, since they're toying with a really inventive premise. I mean, it's got a gigantic Pac-Man rampaging through the city. They better not mess that up.
So, overall, Pixels looks like it could be a fun time, but since it bears the Happy Madison name, I am cautiously optimistic about it. I'll even give it a review once I actually see it to tell you if it's worth your money or not. It probably won't be Wreck-It Ralph levels of awesome, but it'll probably be pretty darn fun in its own right. What do you guys think? Do you think Pixels will be good, bad, or just meh?
