I Love Wreck-it Ralph!

My friends and I watched this Disney CG-animated film yesterday. So it's a movie about life inside an arcade game. One would easily think that this movie is the kind that you'd watch just to get some laughs. But there's more to the movie than just funny scenes and cameo appearances from real video game characters. The story is actually very touching.

And who wouldn't love Ralph, the protagonist of the movie, who is actually the villain in his video game world? And it's cute that this big and tough guy whose job is to be bad and wreck stuff actually has a soft side and feels alone and unappreciated for what he does. Thinking that he'd be liked if he were the good guy, he leaves his video game and invades other arcade games to prove that he too can be a hero.

Moral lessons? Yes, you'll find some here. You'll even get teary-eyed at the end, like some of my friends. Okay, I almost got teary-eyed too.  =P
