Lovesusti The Worst Film Ever
Intcatinfo A Masterpiece!
Philippa All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Candida It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
DCfan I might not be from either but I have played some of these gameboy and DS like the original Pakeman and Donkey Kong. This was very a thrilling for both me and my sister especially because it is the first film we watched in IMax at the cinema and it was very good especially with all of the pixelations and special effects used in this film.Ignore the haters this is a very good film.
mscravings Been watching this several times and it never failed to amuse me and my kids. The movie was absolutely entertaining. I actually don't understand the low ratings. The acting are just right with their character and the story of the movie. I enjoyed Josh Gad's acting (oh come on! He was funny here!).If you feel disappointed after watching this movie because you think it was silly, (like Adam Sandler's acting was bland or why the heck Kevin James was the president) -- then I think you just have the wrong expectation for this movie.I would feel bad if you were not entertained at all. (Maybe ask yourself.. what is wrong with me ? Why didn't I enjoy that ?)
Leofwine_draca You know, I had every reason not to like PIXELS. It's a Hollywood blockbuster comedy with an emphasis on special effects over story, and it's directed by Chris Columbus, a man known for his twee, family-centred productions. It even stars Adam Sandler, who I'm no fan of. Despite all these detractions, I found PIXELS to be a breath of fresh air in a tired world. It's fast and funny, and a treat for anyone who grew up in the 1980s with 1980s-era video games. The film plays out as one big action set-piece with jokes in between, and thank goodness, there's no crudity for once. Sandler himself is okay and Kevin James is a hoot as the bad-mannered president. Peter Dinklage is the real scene-stealer of the group, though, and there are fun cameos from famous names including Dan Ackroyd and Sean Bean. The film's CGI effects are exemplary and just as good as in a massive budget blockbuster like AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, and that city-wide climax is something to behold. Check it out!
svr-2200 Pixels: Movie Review.Pixels has a very good concept and story idea about a movie that is about classic video games but it fails very badly to be a good movie. Pixels is not entertaining, nor enjoyable and it's just a dumb film.The direction is very weak. The performances of lead actors, cast and characters are very underdeveloped. There are no real feels to any of the characters in the movie. They all seems to just stand on the screen with no real interests in their characters. The whole cast is very very underutilized. All performances feels and looks very under performed. Pixels lacks the entertaining and enjoyable fun factor of good action comedy movie and its just a dull wastage of very good concept idea. The story plot is very unconvincing and uninteresting and whole feel of the movie is very dull. The storyline idea is good but looks very dumb on the screen in the terms of a good movie and fails to deliver the beauty of its concept. The script, is below average, lacks interesting elements, and has pacing issues. The movie feels very slow and boring in many useless scenes. As a fan of these classic games I was really disappointed by the film. The only positive thing about the movie Pixels is some Visual shots and effects of those old classic arcade games and the performance of Peter Dinklage is good to certain points. Some gaming characters like Pac Man looks good in 3D and some 3D Visual scenes are interesting. Otherwise, all over Pixels has a very good concept idea but fails as a movie and succeed as a one of the major disappointing movies of recent times. Pixels could have been a good movie but sadly it is not.(Please Note: That This Review represent only my professional point of view and my personal honest opinion about the film, and does not represent others. Thank You).
