Wreck-It Ralph: Review

Disney Animation's most recent film "Wreck-It Ralph" came out a few weeks ago and as a fan of Pixar (This was modeled pretty closely to their animation style) and extended video game jokes, I was pretty happy I was able to catch it while it was still in theaters. "Wreck-It Ralph" follows the story of Ralph, a video game villain saddened by the fact that he has been punished for doing his job the past 30 years. Ralph seeks some appreciation in the arcade video game world by jumping into different games. He meets some classic and parodied characters, almost gets some games unplugged (essentially a death sentence), but ends up saving the day by being good at wrecking things. "Wreck-It Ralph" hits all the major family movie points while delivering some great videogame references and cameos. I could go deeper, but I am not much of a film critic, so instead here is a list of nouns that describe what I like in "Wreck-It Ralph".
