“Holly on Hollywood”
by Holly McClure
Pixels is about aliens who discovered video feeds of classic 80’s arcade games that were sent to space and misinterpreted them as a declaration of war. They attack the Earth, using models of the characters like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Space Invaders and more. Who you gonna call when the safety of our nation is threatened by giant video game characters? Video gamers of course! The president (played by Kevin James) calls on his old video game buddies Adam Sandler, Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage, to save the day. Michelle Monaghan joins the team as a specialist supplying the arcaders with unique weapons, similar to what’s used in the games, to fight the aliens.
The PG-13 comedy with animation, is best for mature pre-teens to adults because of colorful language, suggestive comments, moronic jokes and crude humor. It is, after all, an Adam Sandler movie, so expect the story to be weak and the acting weaker. But the special effects and iconic game characters will entertain and please the Gen Xers and game nerds who grew up playing them!
