I'm not ashamed to admit it...I absolutely love Disney/Pixar movies. So, while most New York City twenty-somethings spent their Friday soaking up the nightlife, I went to the movies to see Wreck-It Ralph. Judge if you'd like, but I've got no regrets!
It's the tale of an arcade game villain who dreams of becoming a hero. As his name suggests, Wreck-It Ralph breaks things. But he's tired of being of being overshadowed by "good guy" Fix-It Felix. So, we takes matters into his own giant hands, traveling between games on a quest to finally win a gold medal. Along the way, he meets feisty game glitch Vanellope von Schweetz from the candy-coated racing game, Sugar Rush. Like Ralph, she's a misfit. Vanellope's been excluded from racing because a buggy code sometimes makes her pixelate and twitch. Similar to any good Disney flick, it's up to the unlikely duo to save the entire arcade after a deadly enemy is unleashed.

Wreck-It Ralph proves there's a place for videogame-themed movies at the box office. Fans of older games ill enjoy seeing classic characters like Tapper and Pac-Man, while youngsters will recognize recent characters, like Sonic the Hedgehog. Plus, with an over 30-year history of games and characters, there's an endless possibility for future sequels and shorts.
