I had the pleasure of checking out the Bluray/DVD copy of Wreck it Ralph, which is available tomorrow in stores! Let me just say to all the classic video game nerds like myself who had the pleasure of growing up on the Atari, NES, Sega Genesis this movie is for you!
I saw Wreck it Ralph 3 times in the theater and couldn’t wait to own it on Bluray. My writer Patrick wrote a great movie review about it when it was in the theaters. In case you haven’t been following this movie, here is a little info about the film:
From Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Wreck-It Ralph” takes viewers on a hilarious journey. For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman). The film is directed by Emmy-winner Rich Moore.
Featuring an all-star voice cast including Jack McBrayer as the voice of Fix It Felix, Jr. and Jane Lynch as the voice of Sgt. Calhoun, plus breakthrough bonus features that take viewers even deeper into the world ofvideo games, Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph” has something for every player. Over an hour of all-new bonus material is featured on the Digital and Blu-ray Combo Pack, including deleted and alternate scenes, the theatrical short “Paperman,” plus much more.
In a time where everything Hollywood releases is either a sequel or a remake it’s nice to see Disney thinking outside the box.
Wreck it Ralph has a ton of bonus content a lot more than most bluray releases. The fake classic commercials were the best. It reminded me of the old Nintendo Power Commercials I would see on Saturday Morning Cartoons.
The addition of Vanellope von Schweetz brings a fun and silly element to the movie. My daughter wasn’t 100% sold on the movie till Sarah Silverman’s character came on tv. She loves quoting her character and we get a kick out of anyone who says the word Duty.
Overall I could not think of anything I would want to change about this movie. It is a fun family movie that is perfect for kids of all ages, and old school video game nerds like myself. You will recognize most of the characters from classic video games, and many of the actors from popular television shows and movies.
