Anime (???) Video Games

Wreck-it Ralph is adorable while Skyfall perplexes

I’m not really sure how I feel about Skyfall yet. It was fun to watch, but some things didn’t really make sense to me.

I’ve also noticed that the Scotiabank theatre uses DLP projectors on some of their screens. It was a bit better than most, but the screen I watched on had some strange colour artifacts whenever the picture was dark or fast moving.

Wreck-it Ralph, however, I’ve seen twice now and I loved it. The snappiness is pretty heavy-handed at parts but that’s overshadowed by how gosh darned adorable it is.

The game references were there in full force and one might think that the movie would rely heavily on them, but Disney chose instead to use them as a backdrop to a fairly colourful, funny and probably textbook story of changing your stars.

This movie seemed very much like a Pixar flick despite being released by Disney and the level of detail in every object, character and backdrop makes it shine. The expressions, sounds and odd quirks made it a joy to watch. Twice even.

Now many friends seem to be keen to create costume versions of the racers from Sugar Rush. I can’t say I blame them. I might too if I have the time. How cool would it be to do a photo shoot at a go-kart track?
