“Ralph Breaks the Internet” welcomes back to the big screen video-game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. This time, they leave Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and fast-paced world of the internet—which can be both incredibly exciting and overwhelming, depending on who you ask.
Here’s what we think of the movie and why it’s a movie to watch on November 21,2018
What Marcus thinks of it? His POV
What? You think because I’m an old guy that was alive during the birth of video games that I’m automatically going to like this movie? Yeah, that kind of helps. I get all the old video game references from personal experience, and there are a lot of them. This is the kind of movie you can watch many times just to see what the artists put in the background. And because Ralph and the kid go into the internet, there are references for you young people too. The city scenes in the internet are massive and you can see so many famous websites in the background that are not part of the story.
The main storyline about friendship is good for kids. I really didn’t pay much attention to that part. Okay, maybe I shed a tear one time, but I’m a cry baby for those Kodak moments (US TV Commercial reference…YouTube it) Hey, I wonder if a Kodak Moment is anything like the Tagalog word, Kilig, that people can’t seem to translate for me. Look it up and let me know!!
But I think most people will agree the princesses were the best part of the movie. I would not be surprised if we see them in their own movie or tv cartoon someday. But they are not the only funny part. Anyone who uses the internet is going to find something funny they have experienced online.
I’m also a computer programmer, so I was happy to see they did a pretty good job in explaining glitches and how code can be changed to allow new characters and things like that. I think those parts are just from nerd writers giving something fun for the nerd audience, and I for one, appreciated it.
Even if you didn’t see the first movie, if you like video games or like using the internet, then you should watch this movie. It is fun to see how they cleverly explain what happens inside the games and the internet. I mean, haven’t you ever wondered if we were just part of someone else’s game?
What Earth thinks of it? Her POV
Two things happens to us when we are faced by something new to us: 1) excitement, 2) anxiety and fear.
While I am sure you all know the plot of the movie that old video game characters is going to explore the vast exciting and comolicatrd world of the internet, there was actually a deeper and mushy part of the movie that will pinch your heart a bit.
While ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ will make people laugh, I think some of the emotional struggles that Ralph and Vanellope go through in this movie are pretty intense and complicated.
This movie explored the reality of all relationships, which come with ups and downs. Friendships are tested from time to time, and Ralph and Vanellope have to navigate the complexity of theirs—while attempting to navigate the vast and often intimidating internet.
They actually did a good imagerey of what insecurity and complexity of feelings and relationships are with the stunning yet gross graphics!
You’ve all seen the previews of the Disney princesses , that’s one of my favorite part but there’s more to what the previews have shown that you should anticipate for.
And the entire movie will make you miss something out so stay until the credits, it will all make sense after.
Watch it! I would like to watch it again too because of all the fun things in the background that I want to see that I missed out coz I was into the main story.
Oh! A spoiler!
Stan Lee had a cameo. May he RIP. The world of Marvel will never ever be the same without him.
Did you know that all the voices of the princesses we’re the actresses from the original movie . Disney were able to get all of those who are still living among us to reprise their roles! Also Gal Gadot was the voice of one of the supporting characters in the movie
