I probably shouldn't be starting a new thread over a movie trailer, but it's such a freakin' awesome trailer, I couldn't help myself. This movie is going to be SO awesome.

Watch and squee.

    I really like the soundtrack of this film. I really like how they got Buckner and Garcia, the duo that made Pac-Man Fever in the 80's, to make a song for this too. :) The song is called Wreck-It, Wreck-It Ralph, and it's actually pretty catchy. :D

    I also really like the J-Pop theme to Sugar Rush by AKB48, and the original orchestrated theme by Henry Jackman is really good too. There's some fun chip-tune style songs, and some orchestration with electronic sounds, it's really neat to listen to. :)

  • I am not going to read in this thread at all, because I wan't to avoid possible spoilers.

    But I am in the sad predicament of living in Europe, so I won't get to see this movie in a long time and that makes me a sad panda. And when it finally get's here it might suffer from the same curse that Rise of the Guardians has right now. Every showing in every cinema is only on Danish... If there is one thing I don't want anymore, is watching animated movies translated to danish. I wan't to watch them in their native language.

    But when it finally does get here, I will hunt down the even most obscure cinema to get an English showing. I can't wait as it looks really good.

  • @Rather Dashing said: It was...okay? The movie is great for the first....fourth or so. If you've watched the movie trailers, you've seen pretty much all of the major cameos, the movie itself actually spends the vast majority of its run in the "Sugar Rush" setting, which is supposed to be designed like a Japanese kart racer but honestly just feels like somebody picked up a CandyLand board, said "Do that, but with these American brand candies we've licensed", and called it a day. Once the movie hits there, it gets stuck, and goes through some obnoxiously predictable storylines.

    Ralph becomes friends with a character with the intent of fulfilling some selfish goal. How do you think this will go? That's how it goes, complete with the "stop the movie for 20 minutes while we watch characters sulk for awhile" moment. Other than one well-done plot point which SHOULD be obvious but is integrated well enough that I didn't see it coming, every plotline in the entire film can be called as of a quarter of the way in, and the ride stops being fun. Silverman's character is one of those sidekicks that is supposed to grate on the main hero but ends up grating on the audience, the whole Sugar Rush world is as saccharine and lifeless as its premise, and the movie spends far too much time retreading old ground and explaining its rules so it can use them half a minute later to fulfill predictable by-committee plotlines, down to the big setpiece finale.

    The movie does some cute things but also does them somewhat inconsistently. Characters in the "Fix-It Felix" universe have limited animation frames, as though they're still sprites, but Ralph and Felix seem to fade in and out of it without much reason behind it.

    Agree with most of this. I thought it got boring as soon as they went to the Halo world. And those story beats of "big dumb protagonist can't do anything right and screws absolutely everything up before finally turning things around at the end thanks to love" are so damn annoying.

    The soundtrack was good enough that I got it the minute I got back from the theater.

  • @Gman5852 said: Interesting to note the lack of Epic Mickey and Kingdom Hearts characters. I mean those would have been the easiest of cameos to license.

    It was rumored that Sora did get a cameo in it. I read it on the KH Wiki and the cameo is hard to see but the wiki said its during the Tapper scene when Ralph is talking to Tapper and he says he has to serve someone and it goes into the 8-bit screen showing the arcade machine, it says Sora is one of the people to walk in. But it was proven to just be a cowboy that looks like Sora.

    Wreck-it Ralph wiki which says it was proven false:http://wreckitralph.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_cameos_in_Wreck-It_Ralph

  • I got the impression with the Nicelanders that they didn't want him around because Ralph has a penchant for destroying things. So even though he's being super nice and stuff, he'd just end up breaking everything just by virtue of being there. Like, there was this feeling that they used to invite him to this sort of thing, but he kept on blundering around and accidentally ruining things that they stopped asking him.

    Felix seemed to be still okay with letting him in, but it felt like he was doing so because he could easily fix any of the damage Ralph caused.

  • The main thing I learnt from that Movie is that all Good guys are actually pretty horrible...
    It is better to be a villain any day over some jumped up arrogant super hero
