It’s true what they say about “Pixels” (2015) — it just wasn’t great. It’s a pretty brainless movie, despite the fact that its sci-fi-comedy premise is actually pretty clever and funny.
I’d grudgingly give it a 6 out of 10, which is better than what many other people are saying. It was fun, it made me laugh a couple of times, and the special effects were actually quite good. If you were an 80’s kid, seeing Pac-Man and Donkey Kong brought to life is just too fun not to enjoy.
[UPDATE 7/29: I am learning now via Cracked.com that the plot is a ripoff of an episode of “Futurama?” Thanks, Wednesday Lee Friday!]
