We had just about written this week off, and as is often the case with lowered expectations, we found something amazing and beyond surprising. Well, I suppose many will argue that it is as a result of those lowered expectations, and frankly, they might be onto something.
In any case, we were blown away by Wreck-It Ralph, a film that we both thought was going to be a whipped-together bit of fluff, and largely an excuse to throw out video game cameos. We still aren’t sure which way the money is flowing there, or how those contracts work exactly, but the trailers would lead you to believe that Q-bert had a major role in the film.
We got about halfway through this one and finally had to stop and blink at each other. What was going on here?
A fascinatingly clever movie with a great script and a lot of fun, that’s what.
If you need an argument that this is a winner, look no further than the fact that we both gave this five stars.
Give the show a listen below, and then keep looking for a great giveaway we’re tying to this episode.
Also, don’t forget that our next show will be Wednesday, November 14th at 5:00pm est. We’ll be covering Skyfall, and we will have special guest Frank DeCaro with us. You may remember him as the movie critic for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, a gig he had for some seven years, or you may know him from his own show on Sirius/XM. It’s going to be a lot of fun. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ru-instant-reaction-review/2012/11/14/skyfall-with-special-guest-frank-decaro
