Sam and Violent relationship was off to a rocky start. Meanwhile in Guam, Galagia ships started to attack Military base. Sam shows Cooper footage of the alien attack at Guam. Cooper tells his cabinet about aliens based on video games. Sam embarrasses himself and tell them about video game aliens. Later on Sam meet Wonderbug aka Ludlow (Josh Gad).

Even broadcast themselves as Madonna, Hall & Oatas along with Fantasy Island. Second attack was in India and last one was England. Invaders stated that three lives and if you lose, they will take over the planet. Sam, Ludlow and Violent came up with a plan to save the world.

 

 

 

Video  Game War

 

Our main characters uses blasters to denigrated video game characters. Sam recognize Pac-Man, Galaga and Centipede and other games. Our heroes needed help from a cheater Eddie (which was revealed middle of the movie) and Tohru Iwatani. Eddie, Ludlow, Sam and Tohru uses cars that modeled off Pac-Man ghost. After defeating Pac-Man, the Space Invaders still declare war on Earth. Mothership drops alot of characters from 1982 video games. Major characters come up with a plan to get on the Mothership. Q-bert explains about video game world why they attacking real world. Sam, Violent and Cooper gets on the Mothership, while Ludlow fight off pixels.  Three characters meet the boss Donkey Kong and beat the game.

The day has been saved and Ludlow meets his video game crush Lady Lisa.  Ludlow and Lady Lisa has kids. Sam, Violent Ludlow and Eddie are heroes who saved the world. Overall, Pixels 2015 was not a bad movie but a rental in my opinion. There is alot of product placements like Sony and many others. I was happy to see PlayStation 4 and The Last of Us in one scene. Some of the jokes were hit and miss for some point in the film. Adam Sandler performance was subpar and Pete Dinklage was funny. I don’t like Sam and Violent (Michelle Monaghan) forced love interest subplot. The group that fights off pixels are called “The Arcaders” which based on gamers who play at Arcade. Pixels 2015 has alot of easter eggs based on 80s retro games.

 

 

 

Closing

In closing, Pixels 2015 falls flat in explaining why did video game invaders is trying to take over the planet. I don’t get it at all  and because of old bugs or glitches. The explanation was a bit off in my opinion and had me confused. I was happy to see Donkey Kong, Q-Bert, Robotron and many others. Ludlow has some funny moments as well and get to marry his waifu. The effects in the movie is not spectacular but very flashy. At the end of the day, better be a winner than cheater. You can tell that to Eddie that cheated at World Championship. Pixels 2015 movie is available on Dvd/Bluray at Amazon. Let me know what your thoughts in the comment. If you want more updates on the blog.
