How many similiar reviews would it take before you stopped grouping our names together? Just curious.

Besides, it's ironic you would combine us when together we loved both halves of it. Clearly the movie is doing something right.

Let's just be honest... If you disagree with Neverending! You have lost all respect and credibility!

The fact that people are saying this is the best Disney movie since Lion King is laughable... It's a good movie.... But there have been many movies that have been way better.

It also could have used more video game references.

Though Tapper was an obscure, interesting surprise. (And the Konami Code)

If you were to tell me that at some point in time Franklin sat down and watched Tangled I would have called you a liar.

Your supporting Disney! And she's honestly not playing Sarah Silverman which makes it 10x better

I rented it and the disc screwed up about 10 minutes into it. I never got around to renting it again.

Get off your high horse. I explained pretty well why I ended up enjoying the film.
I read the books as a kid, and the movie tried to do more with the story and novel then I was expecting. Everyone has something that someone likes that the general audience doesn't, and just because it's my guilty pleasure doesn't mean you or anyone have to agree to it.

I'm done talking about that movie

Good lord. Is it really that complicated to realize that when you quote a spoiler you're just spreading that spoiler even more? Even after they go back and fix it?

The only difference is I don't keep bringing it up in every single review thread for a year.

John Carter is more laughable than Wreck-It Ralph.

John Carter was funny but not ha-ha funny.

If John Carter happened to you, you wouldn't laugh. But it happened to someone else so it's okay.

So, guys, I know this is the Wreck It Ralph thread and all, but, what did you think of that John Carter movie?

Saw this today. Neverending's initial review said all there is to say. It was slick, well-written, and really funny in parts.

8/10

A little late to the party, but I just saw Wreck-It-Ralph last night, and it was a pretty good movie. It had a lot of heart, but I was surprised that it wasn't particularly funny. It's one thing that I didn't find it particularly funny (most comedies don't work on me), but my entire theatre was pretty quiet throughout the movie. Like, I'd recognize several attempts at jokes, but the audience didn't respond particularly well to them. Anyway, that didn't ruin the movie for me, though. Just an observation.

Also, I wonder what kept the writers from utilising other video game characters more in the story. Imagine if characters from Sonic the Hedgehog and Street Fighter joined in the fight at the end against the bugs. Wouldn't that have been an epic scene? Instead, they are mostly background characters with a few lines here and there. I think that kept the movie from being truly awesome for me. I also agree with JBond's review that the second half was a whole lot better than the first. I wanted more from the Hero's Duty game, and less from Sugar Rush. Still, I think the ending saved the entire movie. Did anybody else get the Iron Giant vibe when Ralph was crashing into the volcano of Mentos?

7.5/10

Wreck It Ralph was the most celebrated animated film of 2012, though likely most of that praise comes from the simple fact that its about video games. Otherwise its a pretty regular family movie, nothing that will compete with the recent animated greats like Up or the Toy Story films.

The arcade underworld works very similar to the world of Toy Story, where once the people are gone they live lives of their own. Characters can even visit other games, so long as they are back before the arcade opens again. In this world Ralph is unsatisfied with his role as the bad guy, and starts game jumping. This offers an interesting theme to be explored with not accepting your lot in life and being an outsider, though I'm not sure the resolution speaks to these themes too well.

I have to admit that I enjoyed the storyline quite a bit. It follows a clear pattern but also throws some neat dilemmas and twists in, notably the story behind Vanillape (or however the heck I'm supposed to spell that) and the villanous King Candy. That was some good stuff which provided for some drama. However, there were clunky parts like the space bugs taking over another game and a weird romance development.

The visuals of Wreck It Ralph were pretty spectacular. The colour palate alone is enough to get kids on a sugar high. But there's also some great touches with the way the arcade characters move and how the candy world of Sugar Rush was detailed that always make for an interesting watch.

The downside to this movie is that the writing isn't so hot. Not so much the story, which I've already mentioned that I enjoyed, but the dialogue is really the problem here. It just falls flat; noticeably flat. There are really no interesting lines here, which also affects the humour. Its very, very basic and juvenile. Lines like "why are you so freakishly annoying" and even a "did not/did too" argument shows that they didn't have a lot in the way of inspiring dialogue. In fact, almost anything the little girl says showcases how childish the writing is.

The music also disappoints, which is a surprise coming from Disney. I know they were going for more of a retro video game music style, but lets face it, those melodies aren't very emotionally rousing.

This was a fun movie, and gamers will get a kick out of some of the references I suppose (though there's not as many as you would think). The video game world is interesting to explore, but I'm not sure all levels of code were working well enough to make this a hit.
7/10
