Pixels - New Film

Recommended Posts

Sorry if you've heard about this already but I've not noticed any posts about it, but there will be a new film out this year based around early 80's arcade characters.

 

The name of the film is "Pixels" and a wikipedia entry is here:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixels_%282015_film%29

 

The trailer is here:

 

 

And is loosely based on this short animated film from 2010 which was pretty great at the time (and still is)...

If you need to be a nerd, to like the content of the film... well... call me nerd ;)

Really looking forward to watch that movie.

I think that it looks like it will be a film that I will struggle to watch from a plot point of view. However, I think that I'll enjoy it from a retro point of view. Anything that mentions the arcade classics is great to me!

 

Apparently though they will be inventing some 1980s characters (to get the female quota up I suspect).

Oddly enough I just added the trailer to a lock picking forum I'm in (fun hobby) the other day, looks really fun bar it has that idiot Adam Sandler in it, can't stand the bloke, made one ok ish film and the rest have been tripe..

 

Like Ken I loved Wreckit Ralph....Spotting all the cameo's was great..

Yeah, it's a Happy Madison (Sandler) film so I don't have high hopes. Basically it means it's going to be a goofy story where the only casting done is a few "you in?" texts to his friends.

Sandler's movies are really goofy and some make my *Major Dud" list.

Supporting actors make up most of the likability, like Drew Barrymore :)

I'll still watch it thou...

Remove that shady overtone :)

 

Lock picking / bypassing is a great fun hobby that requires real skill, its not about breaking to peoples houses although I have the ability to :)

 

(oddly enough the one rule we have is to never try your skills on actual door locks incase you mess up the pins, we use old locks not on doors)

 

Now where is it you live ;)

Now where is it you live ;)

 

Somewhere on this island named "Australia"...!

 

I'm sure you'd be happy to come and find me! :)

 

I'll give you a clue, I'm near an Aldi.

 

Come and pick my lock and I'll meet you in the back room for a game of Space Harrier.

Don't believe the hype!

 

It's pricey as you say (though dropping as the exchange rate is levelling back) but the TV is awful, the weather is no better than England (instead of staying inside because of the cold, people stay inside as it is too hot) and there's a general lack of culture...

 

On the positive side, I get to see Neighbours episodes before you.

 

And perhaps I'll see Centron 3D before you.

In that case perhaps I'll stay where I am :)

 

I shall leave Centron 3D where its always been, in someone's imagination...

 

A game too good for the Atari...

Oh snap! I just visited that page for the first time today and find that I have the bottom spot! I can't decide which I find more flattering: being named in such distinguished company or, by disassociation, being honored with his rejection.

 

EDIT: This is about the Centron3D Losers Page. Sorry for the cross-talk.

Uups, I want to mention that it is based on the clip "pixels" by Patrick Jean.


But the second clip in the beginning posts already said that...



With different music:

Any more Atari characters in there besides Pac-Man and Donkey Kong?

(neither one of which is an Atari character) ;)
