Wreck-It-Ralph-Blu-ray-CoverPixar is just amazing, and seems everything they do just keeps getting better and better, and Wreck-It Ralph keeps with the formulae in a huge way. Once you see thing great movie, you will find it hard to believe that all this great action takes place in the span of only two days within the confines of a video arcade. Let’s get a run down of how this all goes about.

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is pretty big guy for an 8-bit character that was created back in the early 80s. He’s been the antagonist of the Fix-It Felix Jr. video game for thirty years, and he’s getting a bit fed up with being the “bad guy”. Just because he as a temper, and was programmed to work the way he does, that does not mean he is evil. He finally meets with the other villains of some of the Litwik Arcade’s games in the Pac-Man ghost house for some group therapy, and he is glad to get the confession that his life is boring and lonely out there. On his way back to his game, he goes through the Central Transfer Station, which is really a huge surge protector that connects all the games in the arcade together, and is stopped by security, which is a common thing for him, and makes it back to his game. When he arrives, the secondary characters of his game are throwing a party in honor of the game’s thirtieth anniversary and Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) is the guest of honor.

First, a little history. Jack Frost (Chris Pine) wakes up from what looks to be a drowning in a frozen pond. When he comes to, he suddenly has lots of energy, but no memory of whom he is, except for the name, which was given to him by The Man in the Moon, and the fact that he can wreak havoc with wild winter fun for kids by bending ice and snow to his whim.

Also, there is Tooth (Isla Fisher) a fairy that gives cash for bicuspids, that runs a nightly operation and over sees thousands of other, minor fairies as they search for lost teeth. Another immortal that does his job nightly is Sandy, the server of childhood dreams. All their work is being undermined by an evil spirit, Pitch (Jude Law), Also known as The Boogeyman, and Jack is focusing his strength on the town of Burgess and one kid that keeps on believing in the legends, no matter what.

Arrietty-DVD-Cover-2010This great family movie combines two of my favourite subject into one wonderful charming movie that just about everyone will love. Take a the classic story of The Borrowers by Mary Norton, and splice it with the talents of Studio Ghibli, and you’ll have one amazing adventure, and see it through the eyes of a 4-inch tall teen, Arrietty Clock (Bridgit Mendler).

Arrietty lives with her parents, Pod (Will Arnett) and Homily (Amy Poehler) under an old house, yet upscale house. This house is being kept up by a little old eccentric housekeeper, Hara (Carol Burnett) for the family. The youngest son has been brought out to the country home for some relaxation, as he has a heart condition, and will be having surgery soon. During the night of Arrietty’s first “borrowing”, the boy, Shawn sees her, but not her father. Arietty is fearful of humans, and so she should be, as generations of Borrowers have disappeared when discovered by humans before her. Shawn (David Henrie), however, is kind, but curious about this little person, and starts bringing her gifts and notes to find out more about her and her kind.
