It's the new Toy Story. I can see a couple more of these coming out and being another classic trilogy for generations. It has wonderful references and throwbacks to classic video games with iconic characters that make it a gamers movie as well as a kids movie. It features quite a bit of ups and downs with a good message. Wreck-It Ralph has very clever writing, use of imagination, and diverse characters.

I am a gamer at heart, and Wreck-It Ralph was my cup of tea. It wasn't a movie based on a video game, but a movie based on video games. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of an arcade game character who has played the role of villain for 30 years and gets fed up with not being recognized for his efforts. So in order to prove that he can be a hero, he travels through electrical cords to other games.
The visuals is quite an odd mix, in a good way. Many characters can look like sprites (A collection of pixels) of their 3d selves in the view of kids, and some more modern characters are given more definition than others.
Many franchise characters are given cameos, but the biggest notable mention was Sonic's cameo, complete with Roger Craig Smith as the voice actor. Overall, it was a torrent of intellectual property that makes the gamer in me plum giddy.
The movie is good in terms of plot, music, and comedy for kids to adults. Just watch out for Kano's 'Fatality' early in the film.

This film was beyond amazing! I absolutely loved it. From the day I saw the trailer I knew once I saw it it was gonna be on my top 10 of animated films. Jane lynch was great! She engaged in the character so well. I'm not a big fan of Sarah Silverman quite honestly but she did a great job in the voice over. Definitely something I would take my niece and nephews to go watch. This film is for any age really. Animated or not YOU HAVE TO WATCH IT! Will definitely buy the soundtrack to this film.

What a throwback!
Wreck-it-Ralph was a trip down memory lane for me. I even teared up here and there during the movie. It was an absolute joy.

My Grandkids and I all enjoyed this movie! It's funny and so inventive. Some really subtle lines and some poignant parts. Very imaginative! I had no idea I would enjoy it so much! And, I honestly think the trailers they're showing for this movie don't do it justice. I usually think most trailers over-play a movie but this time it's exactly the opposite.
