    furious Wreck it Ralph: Im gonna wreck it!

    It was..... Surprisingly great.

    It was fun. The videogame jokes worked, there where references for me only, but it was still accessible to everybody else.

    I wouldn't put it on par on something like Wall-E, but it wasn't trying to be Wall-E.

    It had good characters, a fun plot, and even more surprisingly: Good 3D.

    I know! I was shocked! It was because there where lots of panning shots in the movie, where the camera does not cut. As a result, the parts with rapid movement (But not shaky movement) popped up even more.

    So yeah. Id give it an 8or9/ 10.

    So yeah. Proof that Disney does not need Pixar to survive.

    Also surprisingly brutal death for the bad guy. Nothing gory, but absolutely horrifying if you think about it. A contender to the throne of Brutal disney deaths.

    Since Disney can't just shoot the bad guy, they instead kill them in highly creative ways. This was one of them. I still think Dr, Facillers scene where he is dragged off to hell is worse, but this is a runner up.

    Yeah, I saw it Wednesday, was beautiful.

    Q-bert was great character. I loved all the "bad guys" were there at the meetings. The main bad guy from that Ghouls and Ghost Knight game where if you got hit you lose your armor and were in underwear was there (that was a hard game btw).

    I love Ralph's backstory for the game.

    Honestly all of her bits were kinda flat. I mean like, think of it this way: Her backstory is artificial and she has about a weak of actual experience. These are facts, but they don't factor into how she behaves at all. She strikes me as being just a straight example of the kind of character she's meant to poke fun at.

    It's not a well made point though. I mean her programmed backstory is treated as actual events, and her behavior isn't really questioned or assessed. Her being this tough action girl is something taken at face value and she kind of gets shoved into the background compared to every other main character. She isn't all that deep or funny, she just ...is.

    There's no such thing as good 3D if you already wear glasses. No, not even then.

    But I wanna watch this movie if I can find it in 2D. Looks fun. "Worst" case scenario, we miss it in theaters and have to watch it pay per view at home.

    Did you notice how all the other characters follow their programming, to a fault, and not doing so is seen as a dangerous thing? That's one of the rules of the universe. She gets shoved into the background because it's not her movie; she's supporting cast. Felix gets shoved into the background a bit too. She's a send-up of tough female action girls, and she plays it straight because if she didn't it wouldn't work nearly as well as it does.

    The real tragedy of her character is that she's done better than actual female video-game characters.

    I thought it was fantastic. Probably my favorite animated movie in years. The jokes were funny, the story was well done, and it was overall a very enjoyable watching experience.

    I have to agree - they aimed for 6-7 of 10 and hit 8 of 10. Surprisingly entertaining - not grand or epic like, saying, John Carter or Avengers but worth the money I paid to see it in the theater. I don't think I'll buy the DVD.

    As to 3D, I wear glasses and it works fine for me, in fact the modern one is the first 3D that's ever worked for me (I'm mildly crosseyed).

    While I did enjoy the movie, one criticism I would have to voice would be the romantic sub-plot with Commander Calhoun and Felix.
    It seemed awkward and forced and nothing probably would have changed if it were just simply removed altogether.

    That makes it sound like Disney swallowed Pixar. It's more like the food-borne parasite of Pixar has navigated to Disney's brain and given it an acute, life-threatening case of AWESOME.

    By which I mean the co-founder of Pixar has become the president of Disney Animation.

    Following your programming in game, yeah. But the thing is there's no real way to justify it when she isn't "on the job" being played the way it is. I mean the whole culture of following programs seems to be based around Turbo, which she didn't know about.

    Likewise, if it's a thing you start with and develop through a bit then why is nobody commenting as such. I mean most of the Street Fighters seem to be on mostly good terms even right after punching each other, and it's not like Felix and Ralph straight up hated each other so much as didn't actually know each other.

    Likewise, saying she's a supporting character is weak. She's given top billing in the trailers and ads, and that's just not a markeitng ploy since she's treated like everyone else in the credit's animation instead of brushed off with Turbo and the other non-main's. She didn't have as much time as the other three, but most of what she did have wasn't exactly used to develop her personality.

    Actually, it wasn't so bad. I've always preferred understated frames though, so.

    It was sort of awkward. I think the entire justification comes at the end in the epilogue.

    I think you've got it bakwards. She has every reason to be played straight. Either A, she hasn't been plugged in long enough to really have a personality emerge, especially not since all of her stimuli comes from
    Her game, or more likely B, she's a hard ass because unlike everyone else, her Gillian can and will end all life with only minor effort. Her ralph won't complain politely. Her Ralph will destroy your universe.

    Huh, will definitely consider seeing it that way then. Ordinarily I avoid 3D films, but if I hear it's good enough I'll try it. For example, I heard The Adventures of Tintin had great 3D, so I watched it that way and it was actually pretty good.

    I'm gonna go ahead and voice another complaint in that the enemies from Heroes duty were incredibly contrived. I mean the film went to lengths to show game villains being a certain way and then ten seconds later we're dealing with something that's different with no real explanation as to WHY.


    ...honestly, I wouldn't care all that much if Heroes Duty was cut entirely given how it went in the movie. Calhoun is easily the least developed character, the enemies are contrived and seem to only exist to set up the obligatory boss fight, and the Calhoun/Felix romance was so contrived it was kind of ridiculous.

    They did. They actualy had a clever little slip that EXPLAINS why they look the way they do:

    Spoiler
    Show

    They shown that when they ate Ralphs gun, they adapted to the gun.

    Its logical to assume that when they eat the candy kingdom, they became candy like.

    King Candy was a flaw in the system, and glitchy. Its possible to assume his dominant personality took control of the bug thing.



    And I can't really argue on your personal opinion over Calhoun. Its your opinion so hey. Whatever.

    The romance was a bit random, but it didn't bug me at all. I liked Calhoun, I liked Felix.

    The romance changed nothing about that.

    When I walked out all I could think of was 'But... Zangief not bad guy...'
    Really enjoyed the movie, but it kinda sat in the back of my mind for the first half of it. That and with all the ads you would have thought someone like Robotnic would have had a speaking role. That would probably be my biggest gripe. Some of the characters they used in ads were only on screen for like 10 seconds.
    But if my main complaint about a movie is marketing, I must have enjoyed it somewhat.
