Hello! I’m well and alive after my final exams! Mine actually ended a month ago, but I don’t imagine anyone to care.
Normally I don’t write about the movies I watched, let alone reviews. Especially since I watch a lot of them, both in cinema and on my laptop. ;)
But anyway Feeq brought me to the premiere of Wreck It Ralph on the 22nd, and they gave us a press kit, so now I feel obligated to. Well hello there. (And I went through the Iron Man 3 folder in the press CD, apparently it’s going to be available around April 2013 aka/or summer 2013? I’m sorry, I didn’t get the memo that said summer in US moved to April.)
A video game villain wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives.
Wreck-It Ralph (voice of Reilly) longs to be as beloved as his game’s perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer). Problem is, nobody loves a Bad Guy. But they do love heroes… so when a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Lynch), Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan — win a medal — but soon wrecks everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph’s only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Silverman), a young troublemaking “glitch” from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it’s “Game Over” for the entire arcade?
This summary from IMDb is actually a little off, but I’m not going to write my own. And since I’m late, the movie has been out in Malaysia cinemas since 29th November, so you can catch it in the cinemas now.
Wreck-It Ralph was so cute! And so cool! I love how they are able to interact with game characters from other games, travel to other games, form their own society (like Bad Guys Anon HAHAHA!), go to a bar and drink omg, and wtf have their own train system! So cool!
It all became very amusing and interesting when the characters from these different game worlds, with different resolution (8-bit to super high-tech ones), interact in a game world not of their own. Sometimes an 8-bit character will cross over to another game and become all “normal”, and sometimes vice versa and become a tiny 8-bit character. SO CUTE! AND SO COOL! And so amusing!
It was pretty heartwarming, as it was cute and cool. I teared a little. :’) Or a little more.
A lot of familiar game characters made cameo appearances in the movie, but mostly just my childhood game characters because I don’t recognize new ones. It made me miss my carefree childhood. And I wonder if Disney went through a lot of trouble to get the permission to use them in the movie.
On another note, Cold War (寒戰) was amazing I think I need to rewatch soon! It was very intense, and very thrilling. Holy shit Aaron Kwok (郭富城) is an amazing actor! I felt like the movie brought me on a plot-roller-coaster ride wtf. It definitely helped that Eddie Peng (彭于晏) and Aarif Rahman (李治廷) are very good looking men!
I’ve been extra exposed to Chinese media lately. I was watching bits and pieces of the drama Lam Fung was in, Highs and Lows? And now also bits and pieces of the drama where the man has like 4 wives wtf.
And I’ve also watched The Fierce Wife in the cinema. She was neither fierce, or a wife wtf. And it was one awful and boring movie. I feel like I paid just to look at the girl being pretty on a big screen for 2 hours. Nothing much really happened that couldn’t be summarized into one normal short TV episode. It definitely didn’t need a movie to end the TV drama.
