PaperMan: Beautiful Wreck-it-Ralph: Fun and Cute
First off, the short played before the movie, Paperman, is absolutely gorgeous. I am probably going to buy the movie so I can have that. Its a sweet little love story with beautiful style and lighting effects. As an animation student, this was my favorite part of the whole thing.
I've actually seen Wreck-it-Ralph twice, once with my boyfriend and friends from college, and the second time with my 12 year old sister.
The movie has lots of fun references to video games both old and new as well as some neat handling of the different graphics between the games.
Although the core story isn't something new, it still is done well and can be enjoyed by all ages. There are some parts that may seem frightening to very young children (especially in a loud theater) but are part of the peril and obstacles of the movie. A great movie for the family, fun date, or with friends.
