Pixels

There's a movie coming this summer called "Pixels". It's an enhancement of something that's shown up a lot of times before in small videos on YouTube, but it looks like they've done an excellent job of it, high budget. Let's hope the script is up to the job, and the acting rates.

It reminded me of a short piece I first saw something like 30 years ago as a filler on HBO called "Arcade Attack". (And let me just say right now that any guy who wears a pompadour deserves to get zapped by space aliens.)

UPDATE: It also reminds me of this.

2 I just hope Leisure Suit Larry doesn't show up...

3 Oh boy, it stars Adam Sandler and Kevin James?  It's frickin' doomed.

4 Of course, if we ever do get invaded by real-life computer games, we'll just unleash the 9-year-olds and the war will be over in 30 minutes.

6 'Duck, did you not see Click or Bedtime Stories?  Sandler's done a lot of stuff in the last 10 or so years that's pretty darn good.

7 And it's got Peter Dinklage in it, so it can't be all bad!

9 Tweeeet! Ten yard penalty on Wonderduck for Godwin violation!

10 Violation?  The only violation committed is the atrocity that is Adam Sandler and his so-called acting.
