I assume you also went to see PIxels together! :love:


He said he was a gamer, not a masochist.

I didn't see the movie, so I am assuming that it was bad?

I saw it and I liked it. People who were hoping that Adam Sandler would be giving a Oscar-worthy performance were sorely disappointed and went on a screaming rampage as a result. Go figure... :roll:

The movie doesn't take itself seriously at all, and reaches quite a high level of absurdity as a result. I guess some people just find that level of absurdity unpalatable. Me, I had fun watching it, just like I had fun watching Scott Pilgrim versus the World, which I highly recommend to all retrogamers. :)

Yeah, me and my kids had a great time seeing pixels. I think some peoples expectations are just way to high for something coming out of Hollywood :P hehe

One of my all-time favorite movies!  And the graphic novels are amazing, too!

The bad mojo around Pixels had a lot to do with it being an Adam Sandler vehicle, who has long since burned up all of his goodwill from his early movies. I also didn't care for the premise being lifted from Futurama before it became the YouTube short that the movie was based off of. I didn't see it, nor do I have much interest. With that said, if it happens to be on when I'm stuck on the sofa, I might direct my eyeballs at it.

I watched Pixels with my kids...it was fun.  Not stellar but still a fun flick.

Hi, here's a web site you've apparently never heard of before: http://www.rottentom...s.com/m/pixels/
 
And just for fun: Half in the Bag reviews Pixels.

Scott Pilgrim vs the world was an amazingly funny movie with many inside jokes.  It was a work of art.   Haven't seen pixels but I usually like movies everyone hates.

UPDATE2: Ok, I have an updated list. About 150 pre-orders, so still 50 modules available. I will start sending confirmations in a minute.


You should update the first post of the "official second run" thread to update the number from "63" down to "50". :)

I loved the film too (and not only because it is something initiated by French guys... :) ).  And my  6 year old soon also..  after that  i had to show him all the games we saw in the film.  he is looking foward we buy the DVD.

 

My only regret  is it was too short for me,  i would like more!!!    ..   who have seen Kung Fury? ...  So good too!
