    Nice to see another big Hollywood movie feature lots of retro game characters. Wreck it Ralph wasnt bad but this movie should also make retro more 'mainstream' i reckon (dont know if thats good or bad)

    I thought wreck it Ralph was so freaking good. I think I cried during the film.

    I think this is going to be one of those so bad it's good kind of movies.

    It's horrible.
    Looks like one of those "so dumb it's hysterical" versions.

    I wasn't sold on it til the end of the trailer when Toru Iwatani confronted pacman! :D Can't say I'd go to the theater but it's a definite rental for me.

    I knew this was going to be terrible the day I've seen the announcement. The fact that I'm not a Nintendo fan didn't help either.




    But apparently even Nintendo fans will be disappointed by this.

    It's an Adam sandler movie guys. It's bad haha. They're obviously using the retro theme as a ploy for ticket sales. The plot seems non existent, and I'm positive this movie will be terrible.

    Also Futurama totally did this before, 12 years ago: http://youtu.be/-pIMVZZRb7Y

    Having seen lots of reviews for the film, it is apparently very bad, which is unfortunate considering I am going to see it in a week (I'm still looking forward to it, but the reviews have put me a bit down).

    I forgot to post this earlier but this movie is not as bad as everyone says it is. Sure it's not a masterpiece but it's a solid Adam Sandler movie with video games. At no point in the movie was it hard to watch. I recommend it to anyone who has any interest in Adam Sandler or video games.

    I just watched Pixels yesterday with a friend o' mine, and we both thought it was brilliant! Much better than the reviews said. If you have an interest in video games, particularly retro ones on Arcade systems, I would recommend you watch this film.
