Have you seen Wreck-It Ralph? The Disney film is one of the first major attempts at celebrating video games as a whole, rather than adapting one specific property. Not only did it have a nice story, but also a ton of gaming in jokes for gamers to spot during a viewing. To promote the film, Disney created an actual video game version of Fix-It Felix and stuffed it in a handful of arcade machines to tour around the country. With the film now released on DVD and Blu-Ray, Disney has gone and promoted it in an entirely different way. This time around they've put together a spoof documentary. The video itself is nearly 30 minutes long and takes many cues from the popular The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters arcade documentary. Therefore, those who have watched both that and Wreck-It Ralph will probably get the most from this goofy video. However, it's a fun mockumentary overall and worth a watch if you've got half an hour to spare.
When I first heard about Wreck-It Ralph, it sounded like a great premise for an animated movie, and when I first saw the trailer, my enthusiasm for it grew. But I have to admit, I fully expected a somewhat predictable story with some great video game references thrown in for merely a fun, good, movie experience; nothing more, nothing less. I was dead wrong. After seeing the movie last night, there's a lot more to Wreck-It Ralph than meets the eye. It would not be hyperbole to say that Disney has beaten out Pixar's Brave with their own in-studio movie this year, and I could even see it winning Best Animated Picture at next year's Oscars. Simply put, not only does the movie celebrate everything we love about gaming (from references to gags), but it's also just a great movie period; animated or not. There are a few twists thrown in that I never saw coming, and the prevailing theme about wanting to prove that you're more than what you are evolves and ties in with accepting who you are as well. And the ending was extremely touching, something a lot of people may not have expected from a movie like this. Oh, and it's also extremely funny too; the most I've laughed in a theater in a while, haha. Everyone in my theater applauded and cheered when the credits started to roll. Wreck-It Ralph is the best animated movie, or maybe even just "movie" by itself, that I've seen since Toy Story 3. If it were a Pixar film, it'd probably be my second favorite of all of their films; it's just that good. Unless you absolutely hate animated films (and maybe even if you do), I absolutely recommend that everyone here see it at some point, if not right now.
