Disney's take on computergames. Great fun for lovers of the genre spotting all the references.
Ralph's the bad guy in a game. Sick of the abuse and loneliness he decides to change his luck and try to become a hero. Being a Disney/Pixar movie, obviously everything gets turned upside down and back again.
Great family fun. Not the best Pixar but even a mediocre one is still beter than a lot of other movies.
Saw this as a kid and loved it. Gizmo seemed lifelike, the gremlins menacing, the town as a cool place to grow up ... and then mayhem breaks loose and you root for the good guys.
As an adult, some 25 years later, not so much. It's rather dated, looks all too fake, too childish ...
Perhaps a newer generation of kids will like it but probably without the parents watching it with them.
I'd give it 3.5/5 as a kid, but a mere 2.5/5 as an adult. Calling it a 3/5 even.
True story of the manager of the Oakland Athlethics baseball team who decides to use statistics to form a new team for a small budget and take on the big guys with tons of money.
I, like many Europeans, have zero interest in baseball as it takes way too long, sounds overly complicated and looks silly. However this movie makes a dull sport look exciting and suspenseful. Brad Pitt and Philip Seymour Hoffman are great as usual, but the big surprise is comedian Jonah Hill who doesn't get played out of his scenes with these men. Interesting.
