Pixels ★★½

As expected, this is mildly entertaining nonsense with a few genuine laughs. What I did really like about it though was the attention to detail. The bad guys could have been knocked up to look like any generic 80s-looking arcade sprites, but the fact that they went to the trouble of using the fried egg from Burger Time, the Robotron guys. the Joust characters and so on and that the Centipede scene really looked like Centipede, not to mention roping in the creator of Pac-Man; well, all that good stuff earned this an extra point from this nerd.
