As a kid I spent many a Saturday afternoon at my local arcade playing Ms. PacMan gobbling up all those dots while being chased by ghosts and spent my allowance on Skittles and Rings Pops. So Wreck-It Ralph, with it’s candy infused ode to video game culture, is so up my childhood’s alley. I’ve never really grown out of my love of video games and candy and now my own kid is finding an affection for gaming culture and sweets (although for her it’s in the form of Wii games and Sour Patch Kids). Wreck-It Ralph speaks to both my daughter’s generation and mine with blending of nostalgia and newness.
Not enough for ya? Here are 5 reasons to see Wreck-it Ralph:nggallery id=’119339′
Fun for Whole Family
The phrase '"fun for the whole family" is generally a clique. How many things that are branded that actually follow through with the promise? My guess would be about 40%. I can safely say that Wreck-It Ralph is in that 40%. It has a youthful energy that keeps everyone engaged, there are references for the older set from video games to retro candies, and it has that old-school silliness that kids (of any ages) will fall for. In describing the film to friends I've called it a "fun ride," and it really has that feel, it's a sugar coated video game fueled adventure.
