Anyone else heard of Adam Sandler's new movie Pixels?



quote:

When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack Earth using the games as models for their various assaults. President William Cooper (Kevin James) calls upon his childhood best friend, '80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), who had a previous relationship to his attractive wife (Jane Krakowski) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.

looks like a fun kids movie with plenty of humor aimed at adults. Could be like a live action version of that "Futurama" episode about the same concept.

Ok, so right off the bat I know I have to suspend all belief in reality.


So I don't want to hear anybody on here go see the movie review it as "too silly". ESPECIALLY when the whole movie is based on this premise.

And, Sandler didn't write, direct, or produce it so it should be good.

I think Happy Madison is producing but I was surprised to see Chris Columbus is directing.

It's based off of an animated French short film of the same name.

And probably trademarks/money.

For once it doesn't sound all that shitty of a movie, but it's Adam Sandler, so I'll still keep my expectations as low as possible. Josh Gad and Peter Dinklege are both huge pluses though.

The fact that Dinklage is in it gives me a little hope.

The same world where Sandler keeps hooking up with hot chick after hot chick in his movies.

In a world where he plays Chris Christie?

This movie is too outlandish. Dinklage is too short to even play an arcade game. Unbelievable character is unbelievable.
