The movie Pixels seems to be universally hated. And I cant blame anyone for that.
As kids in the 1980s, Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Will Cooper (Kevin James), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad), and Eddie “The Fire Blaster” Plant (Peter Dinklage) saved the world thousands of times – at 25 cents a game in the video arcades. Now, they’re going to have to do it for real. In Pixels, when intergalactic aliens discover video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth, using the video games as the models for their assaults — and now-U.S. President Cooper must call on his old-school arcade friends to save the world from being destroyed by PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, and Space Invaders. Joining them is Lt. Col. Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons to fight the aliens. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment
Pixels seems exactly like the stupid, juvenile, weak film that Adam Sandler would star in and a big studio like Sony Pictures would make. Anyways below you’ll find pictures from the Pixels movie with captions of its review from a bunch of different places on them.
“Pixels is clearly aiming for more of an ‘advanced scrotal cancer’ kind of vibe -moviebob reviews”
“Pixels is a cant lose formula… what could possibly go wrong? Three words: Adam Fucking Sandler – Jordan Hoffman, Mashable”
“Moronic jokes, lame action, and depictions of middle-aged neuroses. In other words: a Sandler movie” – Joe Neumailer, New York Daily News
“Adam Sandler looks as depressed as a film critic who has to keep reviewing Adam Sandler comedies” – Matt Singer, Screencrush
“Sandler’s character so frequently and lazily insults people that his name should be Judgy McDickFace” Matt Paris, Red Eye
“Really, the viewer would be better off spending 98 minutes browsing old “Bomberman” walk-throughs on YouTube” – Justin Chang, Variety
“Even Q*bert seems embarrassed having to act alongside him” – Tim Grierson, Popular Mechanics
Now, I decided to not see this movie because it looked so ridiculously bad in the movie trailers… so I have nothing to say about it… I had already judged it to be crap way before it even came out.
But with 4 out of 10 stars on IMDB and 1 out of five stars over at rotten tomatoes, you really have to question who thought this movie was a good idea. I mean the entire premise of the movie is stupid, there’s no way the plot line could leave much room for actual comedic moments, and there’s no way you could actually even make a substantial plot out of a bunch of characters with their own distinct plot lines and stories mish-mashed together
Also I’m shocked that anybody would WANT to make another Adam Sandler movie! His films have never been large commercial successes! They’ve never been good, at best, AT BEST they’ve only ever been mildly funny! Why oh why was this movie a good idea to somebody. I’m sorry Mr Sandler and Sony, but this just has dumb written on every single page.
Note! The character of Professor Iwatani is based on real-life creator of Pac-Man, Toru Iwatani. Professor Iwatani is played by the actor Denis Akiyama. The creator of Pac-Man did not actually play a part in this movie. It’s fake.
