Shut up and take my money
It's somewhat hard to discuss this film without some variation of spoilers, so suffice to say you should definitely see it. It was fantastic from the beautiful animated short before the film to the easter egg after the credits. It was packed to the brim with video game references and homages, providing an extra bonus to those of us who get them, but the film's plot is solid and enjoyable even to somebody who doesn't see what all the hype about "The Nintendo" is. To that end, all of the nods to gaming are organic and naturally woven into the film, rather than falling victim to the temptation to have a character shout "HEY GUYS, REMEMBER POKEMON?" every five minutes, as homage films sometimes do.
In short, why are you still reading this? Go see it now.
