    Howdy Pards,

    It's the number one movie in the nation! A fun and joy filled, imaginative, fast moving, adventure-packed celebration! Once you've seen it, be sure to vote in our poll...

    Disney's done good again!!! Hurray for Walt Disney Animation...the undisputed heart of the company that Walt built.

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Howdy Pards,

    Well...it's the morning after...the elections...at long last...are over!

    If you are a Democrat it's time to celebrate by going to the movies and seeing Wreck It Ralph.

    If you are a Republican, it's time to escape the harsh realities of the election by going to the movies and seeing Wreck It Ralph.

    If you didn't vote for anyone...it's time to go to the movies and see Wreck It Ralph...just cause it's far more fun than watching post election coverage on TV.

    And, when you get back from the movies...be sure to vote in our poll above.

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Saw it on Monday.. loved it.

    For King Candy.. I immediately thought of The Toymaker from Babes in Toyland. Given the setting of Sugar Rush, and the Ed Wynn acting.. that's what I thought of. Anyone else?

    I also assume the arcade attendant was supposed to be Walter Day (of the high score keeping Twin Galaxies)

    I found the movie tear jerking at times.. and a great film. Its story is masked enough it doesn't feel like 'heres what coming...' all the time. The cameos are good.. the idea of the power strip is very cute. I was hoping for a bit more classic arcade twists.. but there was certainly enough to wet your whistle.

    I still wonder how these films will last over time compared to other 'classics' - with my main concern with the use of contemporary pop in the soundtracks and some of the pop culture references (the Mentos, etc). But certainly worth the price of admission and left me willing to recommend the film (or see it again).. something the Tron did not

    Re: Wreck It Ralph - a triumph! Destined for huge box office success!

    I <3 'd Wreck It Ralph more then I did Pixar's Cars II (there's no Princess in this film, its just an overall quality animated story where seeing Q-bert was my favorite scene) .... I enjoyed it on a different level compared to Pixar's Brave (which I enjoyed because it wasn't a traditional "disney princess" movie) - my only complaints for October / November?


    1) put the Walt back in Disney (I'm not a fan of the new Walt Disney Pictures intro)
    2) should've done a better job marketing Frankenweenie (feels like the Walt Disney Co didn't even try & there is so much merchandise potential they are not bothering to explore)
    3) bring on the Wreck It Ralph Android app (why does everything have to be iPhone only? (rolls eyes)

    A good film, but I'm hoping if there is another film that more video game characters are in the film.

    Also not spend sooo much time in one game zone, because that is was funny, cute and was animated beautifully a 4/5 for me

    Definitely Disney's best all CGI offering thus far. Puts Tangled, Bolt, etc. to shame.

    Howdy Pards,

    Well, I saw it for the second time this morning...strange how you catch even more of the magic on second viewing. It's a wonderful, fast moving, adventure packed ride. It will be interesting to see how it does at the Box Office in it's second weekend. If you haven't seen it yet...go see it. If you have seen it...do as I did...go back and see it again...

    And, if you haven't voted in our poll after seeing it...please take a minute to do so. At this point over 70% of those responding are in agreement that the film is an absolute triumph for Walt Disney Animation.

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

    Re: Wreck It Ralph - a triumph! Destined for huge box office success!

    Some random thoughts on Wreck-It Ralph -

    The thing I liked the most about it was how it had the distinctive Disney look, and yet was visually unique unto itself, with all those different video game styles colliding with each other.

    There's a scene between Ralph and King Candy that reminds me of the "Mowgli has to go back to the man village" scene with Baloo and Bagheera, which sells the dramatic side of the plot.
    Spoiler
    When he's telling Ralph why Vanellope can't race. I like how that part was played totally straight, so you didn't know if he was lying or not until later. The plot twists were well foreshadowed, but actually surprised me, which is pretty rare for an animated Disney movie. I totally didn't see the Turbo thing coming. Interesting that the hero of the movie was a rogue game villain and the villain was a rogue game hero.


    The one thing I wondered was - what happens when the player loses at the game of Fix-It Felix, Jr.? If you've ever played those old arcade games, after you pass each screen, there comes another, more difficult screen - most likely you're eventually going to die. So what happens when Ralph "wins?" I can picture a scene where Ralph gloats (as he's programmed to do), the player points at him and says, "I hate you!" (like we all wanted to do to that laughing dog from Duck Hunt), and then Ralph feels bad. (This would be towards the beginning, establishing why Ralph feels dissatisfied with his life.)
