Disney’s “Wreck-It Ralph,” new on DVD and Blu-Ray this week, follows the story of the villain of a classic arcade game who decides he wants to be a hero.
From Rick Bentley’s review for the Fresno Bee:
“This likable movie will entertain old and young because of the wide range of video games that serve as the backdrop for the stories.
“Director Rich Moore has done a masterful job of blending all of the varied degree of visuals that come with arcade games. Life in Ralph’s game is a little blocky and the characters have choppy movements. Once the action moves to a high-tech military game, the graphics vastly improve. Moore blends these different looks to create a perfect union.
“And long after this movie has gone ‘game over,’ Sarah Silverman’s voice work as Vanellope will remain at the top of the high-score listings. Generally, actors merely give a voice to an animated character. Silverman gives her character energy, life and a sweet charm.”
The Charlotte Observer is partnering with Walt Disney Animation Studios to give away 10 copies of the “ultimate collector’s edition” of “Wreck-It Ralph,” which includes the Blu-Ray, the Blu-Ray 3D, the DVD, and a digital copy of the movie.
