Hello again, my dear readers.
I know I’ve been away for a while. Well, not really away, but not writing anything. It has a really easy explanation. I didn’t know what to write. Apart from some papers for school. But that was necessary and not fun at all!
But now I’m back with a post.
I don’t really know how far back it was that I saw the movie for the first time, but I don’t think it was more than a month. The movie I’m talking about, is Wreck-It-Ralph. It is an animated Disney movie that depicts what videogame characters do after the arcade is closed. The main focus is on the bad guy from the game Fix-It Felix jr. The character is named Ralph and is a professional wrecker.
And what he breaks, Felix fixes.
But the problem is, that Ralph is fed up with being the bad guy. He wants to be one of the good guys, or nicelanders, as they are called inside his game. So he barges in when the nicelanders and Felix are having an aniversary party. Of course, it doesn’t work the way he would have wanted, but the nicelanders told him that if he got a medal, he could live with them in the penthouse.
So Ralph sets out on an adventure to get him a medal. And after meeting a soldier from the Hero’s duty game, he decides that it would be easy to get the medal from that game.
But abandoning your own game means going turbo, like a character from a game from a long time ago, that decided to take over another game when it became more popular than his own. But this action put both the games out of order.
And therefore, while Ralph is getting his medal, his own game is put out of order. At least temporarly.
Ralph manages to get his medal, but then he crashes a shuttle craft in another game. This one called Suger Rush, which is a pink filled go cart game.
His medal ends up on one of the candy trees and while trying to get it, he meets a little girl. The girls is named Vanellope and she manages to get to the medal before him. And then she uses it to enter her name into a race because she wants to be a real racer. At first, Ralph is mad at her, but then they decide to team up to get her a real racing cart.
This friendship gets temporarly undone when king Candy, the ruler of Sugar Rush, gives Ralph the medal back for smashing Vanellope’s cart.
And in the meantime, the shuttle that Ralph crashed, contained a cybug, which is a kind of virus from Hero’s Duty, that know only eat, kill and multiply. The female captain from Hero’s Duty knows this and decides to follow it to SR to kill it before it can lay it’s eggs. She is acompanied by Felix himself who is trying to find Ralph in order to save their game.
Then, Felix falls for the captainess, gets thrown into a dungeon, Ralph gets him out, Felix fixes the go cart for Vanellope, the race happens, it is unveiled that king Candy is in fact Turbo and that the bug multiplied.
Suger Rush is almost destroyed, but Ralph manages to save the day by creating a make-shift beacon which is the only way to get rid of the bugs. Suger Rush is saved when Vanellope crosses the finish line and it is then revveiled that she is the rightful ruler of Suger Rush and that Turbo tried to delete her code and thus forcing her to be a glitch.
But in the end, all is well, Ralph is liked by the nicelanders, Felix marries the female captain and Vanellope recreates Suger Rush to be a constitutional democracy and becomes the president.
The movie is really good and I really love the animation. Also, it shows that nothing is black and white and that even good guys can be bad, like Turbo, who started as a good guy. And that a bad guy can actually save the day.
I know the movie is targeted to younger audience, but I really think that it’s not bad and worth giving it a try. But that’s just me because lately, I found myself watching a lot of different animated disney movies.
What do you think? Have you seen the movie? If yes, what do you think about it? If not, did I spoil it for you too much? Please, forgive me, if so.
