Adam Sandler’s coming out in another movie. This one has a pretty basic premise. Video game characters/aliens are invading the world and old 80s gaming champions have to save it–Actually, it kind of reminds me of an episode of Futurama! I think it was an episode where the crew is playing with the What-If machine and Fry wonders what it’d be like if life was a video game or something. Anyways, I tried to find clips on YouTube, but couldn’t find a good one. HOWEVER, I did find that a lot of other people thought the same as me.
So is this movie ripping off Futurama? Or did they have permission to borrow the ideas? I don’t know.
Either way, when I first saw the first PIXELS trailer, I didn’t think much of it. I mean, I do like the idea and the movie does play towards our nostalgia for the game we may have grown up with. But I still have reservations. I guess you can’t really tell how a movie will turn out until you actually go see it and make up your own mind.
