What I think of Wreck it Ralph?

Gamer would love this movie because it reminds me of Toy Story. Various video games appear in this film. Street Fighter, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tapper and Dance Dance Revolution. The movie tackles violent video games like first person shooters. Sugar Rush reminisce of kart racing games. How glitches are look down in video games. There were some funny moments such as Tamora Jean Calhoun backstory, bugs ruin her wedding. Fix-it Felix ends of marrying her and speaks Q-bert language. Moral of Ralph character that people think bad guys can’t change. Bad guys have problem too but no one notices.

I would suggest that some people could change but takes steps to do it. Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 is coming out this year and can’t wait. This is a great movie from Pixar with glamorous effect and animation. Explores past and present video game culture and a lot of cameos from different franchise. Movie watchers could take a look in video game character perspective. I would check Wreck-it Ralph movie and buy it on DvD and Bluray at Amazon.
