TV Worth Watching 3: Wreck-It Ralph

TV Worth Watching: Wreck-It Ralph

Stream it now from

Yes, I know this is considered a “movie”, not TV, but since it is available for home viewing now, I am including it here.

We are trying to catch up with some movies we weren’t able to see in the theater. Our son tends to see new movies with his grandmother while we do other stuff (usually work (SMILE)), so we are often left out.

Wreck-It Ralph from Disney Animation is now available via a variety of online streaming rentals, so we decided to watch it, after many recommendations by our son. He really seemed to enjoy it and he was quite right. It is a typically charming Disney film with an interesting story and great execution. The animators must have had a really good time playing on the video game tropes and also working in all the different video game graphic styles. The puns, both verbal and visual, fly sat and furious throughout the film. As a rather geeky household, we enjoyed the in-jokes quite a bit.

We all enjoyed it, especially on our new 46″ HDTV. I don’t feel I need to see every movie in the theater (although I did make a special trip to see The Hobbit) so watching movies on this new set is the next best thing for me. Add the ability to pause the movie when needed to this arrangement and I am sold.

Wreck-It Ralph

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late?
