seriously, it's just a generic disney "hero finds somebody who's like him, then saves that person" plot with video games thrown in, why do people like it so much and proclaim it like the thing that saved Disney? judging from the first hour or so it seems just as bad as despicable me. Does it get better?

No offense to people who actually like those sytems, I'm just saying this movie looks like it was aimed toward the retro 90's kid video game wanna be hipster crowd when I first saw the previews for it.

This. I thought the soundtrack was pretty decent also. Only problem was the graphics seemed just a little too much at some points. I don't really no how to explain it.

First of all I'm pretty sure Disney doesn't need "saving"

Second of all it is a pretty sweet film. Not only does it hit me right in the nostalgia, but the animation is great and It's great for all ages. I'm 23 and I loved it, I'm sure younger folks will generally think the same.

I don't think it's generic at all.

Pretty good, but if you dislike it, it's whatever. It's not a perfect film, it does have some flaws.

Ha, I do know what you mean. I don't give a fuck about Mario. If you're willing to play the same game for 30 years than you don't care about video games.

I'm guessing that people get a kick out of recognizing the video game references, thinking such thoughts as "OMG I know that vg char!! I'm such a nerd lol :3" and other such silliness. I haven't seen it myself, but I don't see any reason to not enjoy it simply because of the video game stuff thrown in.

Actually though the only reason I would actually defend it is because my little brother really likes it and he reminds me of the goodness of simply enjoying things.


It made more sense in my head.

If you watched the first hour then... not really. I liked the movie though, the fact that the characters are all stuck within arcade machines is something new, of course the antagonists and protagonists are all generic, but the plot's not.

Despicable Me was horrible though. I don't get how that movie could get more hype than Mastermind.

Yeah, totally man. It's like how people who listen to The Beatles obviously don't care about music and people who watch Citizen Kane obviously don't care about movies and people who read The Great Gatsby obviously don't care about literature.

Don't be fucking stupid. People who actually care about any cultural medium are willing to keep up with new things and explore older things.

Looks like a shitty film that tries to be entertaining just by throwing in a bunch of references instead of having actual humor.

Well you ought to watch it in full before you judge it anyway.

I'm not sure where you got the idea that "people are proclaiming it saved Disney". In fact, I'm not sure why people would proclaim that anyway since Disney's most recent motion pictures got positive reviews overall and did well at the world wide box office (see: Bolt, Tangled and The Princess and the Frog). It doesn't look to me like they were anywhere near the verge of death, nor does it seem like they were going downhill.

You're right in that the film follows a fairly standard formula, but that doesn't automatically make it bad and un-enjoyable if you ask me. Personally, I didn't think it was awesome or anything, but I had a good time watching it nonetheless.

This is what I was telling everyone but no one agreed with me. Its seriously one of the worst films I have ever seen, the only good character is felix later on.

I never had an interest in watching it. Just seemed like a gimmick movie to me with nothing special to add. The video game theme seemed to just be there to pull in younger males.

I heard this was pretty accurate retelling however:

Yup so it was aimed at nostalgiafags

I don't think it's generic at all.

Smacking video game characters on top of a generic story is not originality

i have no idea why but i almost loved that movie and give it 8/10. i mean i didn't really expect it to be more than just vidya references i thought it'd be like some sorta "vidya movie, directed by seltzer and friedberg" crap. not to mention 94724 plot twists near the end and great performances.

but skrilks was in it, augh. fuck him and his kids

I enjoyed the movie.
If there's a sequel to it I'm gonna see it.
I'm hoping it will have even more video game character cameos.

I agree that it was rather mediocre. Really the problem these days is that all these pixar and computer generated films are just flooding the market because they are so much easier to produce than live action film. Many of the films are completely flopping at the box office with losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
