    Wreck-It Ralph

    Wreck-It Ralph is the nine-foot-tall, 643-pound villain of the arcade video game Fix-It Felix Jr., in which the game's titular hero fixes buildings that Ralph destroys. For 30 years, Ralph has been doing the same job over and over and has become tired of being the bad guy. Wanting to prove he can be a good guy and not just a villain, Ralph escapes his game through the power cord and lands in Hero's Duty, a light-gun shooter (and apparent first person shooter parody) where he helps the game's hero, Sergeant Calhoun, battle against "Cy-Bugs", the game's alien invaders. He later enters Sugar Rush, a kart racing game set on tracks made of candies, cookies and other sweets. There, Ralph meets Vanellope von Schweetz, one of the game's characters, who has learned that her game is faced with a dire threat that could affect the entire arcade, and one that Ralph may have inadvertently started.

    And so was the site that he copied and pasted the text from, I suppose.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    I'm surprised nobody has really commented on this movie. We saw it a couple of weekends back and I'd have to rank it right up there with Monsters Inc. and Finding Nemo. Best Pixar offering to come out in a long, long time.

    Hopefully they're getting back into the groove after the disastrous Cars 2 (finally saw it. It was even worse than I thought it would be), and the not-so-well received (even though we liked it) Brave.

    I thought it was good but not a classic like Nemo or Toy Story. Can't put my finger on it, but something was missing.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    I kind of thought something similar as I was watching it, Glenn. But, it just kept growing on me.

    I'm not sure anything will ever touch Nemo simply because of the parent/child dynamic involved.

    This one came close, though. And like you, I can't exactly put my finger on why...

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    Saw it last week, excellent movie. Felt like it sort of drug it's feet in the Sugar Rush portion of the movie, other than that it was just charming.

    And as excited/proud as Disney Animation has been about W-IR it supposedly is even more pumped about Frozen. To put things in perspective, Wreck-It Ralph will be to The Little Mermaid as Frozen is to Beauty & The Beast.

    I don't know if that's true, but it has me really looking forward to seeing Frozen.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    I'm a huge Lord Of The Rings fan, but I can muster almost no excitement at all for The Hobbit. Not sure whether it's due to the lack luster trailers they made for it, or simply Middle Earth burnout, or both.

    I'll more than likely see it when it comes out on video, but until then I feel really meh about the whole thing.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    I agree. I'm not nearly as excited for Hobbit as I was LotR. I loved the old Rankin Bass Hobbit cartoon much better then the LotR ones.

    We'll have to see how it works out.

    Re: Wreck-It Ralph

    I have to admit I'm disappointed Jackson chose to do The Hobbit as another trilogy.

    Honestly?

    Three movies to tell a story that was 1,000+ pages? And another trilogy to tell a story that was a third as long?

    I suppose I shouldn't doubt his ability to do it and make it work. But, it seems a bit excessive.
