The Return of the Character Comedy

There was a time long ago when bit parts in great comedies were well written and well executed. It's back. Every detail of Wreck-It Ralph is superb - well written, well acted, well drawn. It's as rich in treats as the land of the game Sugar Rush it portrays. Kids and adults will like it. But that's an understatement. From the "aw shucks" country sincerity of Fix-it Felix whose "affection" is "rebuffed" despite his "honeydew" glow, to the full-metal-jacket starship trooper beauty is always speaks in awkwardly dire hyperbole, to to Sour Bill, the superbly glum herald of the kingdom of Sugar Rush, everything in Wreck-It Ralph has been lovingly rendered. It's chock full ofclever references back to, well, every computer game ever. But it also harkens back to such landmark films The Wizard of Oz - not just in references the O-E-O guards of the wicked witch - but also in the lavish attention to detail that made old-school films great. This is comic film making at its finest.

A gamer's film

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.

I had seen the trailers several times and wasn't particularly impressed so when the kids started bugging me to go I wasn't exactly excited. However, the concept and story were really well done and the experience all up much better than expected, good fun for kids and adults alike.
