Actually a very good movie, it is very funny and has some cool action sequences throughout, there are also some great nods to 80s arcade gaming which will please retro gamers. In truth, I didn't particularly care for Adam Sandler's character, but he did have some pretty good skills that came in handy later on in the film. I was more interested in Josh Gad's character or Peter Dinklage's character, because Josh Gad was funny as always and Peter Dinklage, while supposed to be rather unlikeable as a character, I found him to be a rather sarcastic, rather mysterious character. A fun summer blockbuster that busts some serious blocks, and it won't ruin anyone's childhoods, if that's what everyone is worrying about before watching, because it really won't.

When I 1st heard about Pixels, I was pumped & couldn't wait to see it.Now after finally watching it, Major, MAJOR disappointment.After seeing Kevin James was the president (Seriously?) the movie just went straight downhill from there.I just felt like as it went along, it just got more & more & more boring.The only good thing about Pixels was seeing all the old video game characters, remembering the old video games I use to play & the 1's I didn't recognize, trying to figure out what games they were from.God, this movie stunk.I can't think of enough bad things to say about it.If somebody told me to come up with 1 funny moment from the movie, I'd say the scene where the lady is in her closet, crying over husband, drinking wine from a sippy cup & Adam Sandler walks in.Other than that, …

Pixels (2015) PG-13 Aliens have come to wreak havoc on Earth. It seems, though, they have misinterpreted video feeds of classic arcade games. Now it’s up to a gang of video gamers to save the Earth from a weapons attack in the form of video games. Can someone just give Adam Sandler a hug because he looks miserable making crappy film after crappy film? This film should have been fun and funny. Instead we get a film that wants us to believe that someone like Kevin James can be president and that the character Adam Sandler plays is so devastated by not winning a video game contest that it ruins his life. The only actor who gives a performance with any energy is Peter Dinklage, and it’s just not enough to save this sorry film. The movie has so much product placement in it that I …

Watching Pixels is like watching 4 famous games from the yesteryears. Galaga, Centipede, Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. These games do keep you at the edge of your seat during the action.
The action is very fast paced and will be liked by all. A special mention to the Pac-Man and Donkey Kong game sequence. The special effects are just outstanding.
Though there is no comedy, there is lot of humor in form of one-liners.
This movie may make people feel nostalgic and happy. Those who played these games would be already in their 30’s and 40’s and would enjoy seeing a larger version of their once favorite, now obsolete games back in action.
Watch it once for the sake of games that you played when …

'Pixels' has the most wasted potential of any movie I've seen in a long time. The premise offers something new, while incorporating a fun pastime that most people have experienced. At the least, this could've been a fun, flashy live-action cartoon for the whole family. Those easily achievable ambitions were not shared by the people who made this wreck. It's extremely obvious that there was a blatant lack of effort from everyone involved. This movie is ground zero for entertainment. I was so incredibly annoyed and bored by almost every second of screen time. For starters, the lazy writing is excruciating. Massive inconsistencies crumble what should've been an entirely simple plot. Rules of the classic video games are re-established, only to be broken by unexplained means that …
