Pixels is a  comedy/ action / sci-fi that’s directed by Chris Columbus and stars Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan and Peter Dinklage.

The first trailer for the movie didn’t look great. Though the second was an improvement, my conclusion after sitting through the movie is that I’m just not the target market.

I used to play Pac-Man growing up but never enough to call myself a half serious video gaming fan. It’s those who love and/or loved retro video games like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris, that will get the most out of Pixels. For everyone else, there are a few funny moments but, overall, ‘silly’ might be a word that comes to mind.

The best part in the movie besides the soundtrack and what the creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani screams in the trailer? That would be the last twenty minutes of the film, particularly the Donkey Kong phase. Tune in if you absolutely must. I did because of I’m a fan of Gad, Sandler, Dinklage and Pac-Man.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
