Apparently this is what the big budget movie was based off of.
Two and a half minutes, turned into… OK, I shouldn’t be mean. I haven’t seen the full movie. Howard Tayler, who has seen it, indicated that it was not actually horrible – as long as you can accept that you are watching a movie where it’d be best if you decide to turn off certain ‘logic circuits’ in your heard before you sit down. Still… I can’t help but think that maybe I already have seen the movie, now that I’ve watched this…

I saw a review linked from Reddit. My impression of it was, “too much Adam Sandler”. Yeah, this is it: http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/22/9012437/pixels-movie-review-adam-sandler
Pull quote: “it’s like Contact meets Armageddon meets sticking knives into my eyes.”
There’s a small but positive chance I’ll go see Ant-man in the next few weeks. Wild horses couldn’t drag me to Pixels.
MovieBob hate Hate HATED it. I won’t link his review since he uses a lot of NSFW language, but if anyone is interested a search of MovieBob Pixels Review would do the trick.
Rotten Tomatoes shows 59% of 42,000 people gave it a positive review, even if the average score is only 3.3/5.
So, much better than the movies my wife picks out. I shall remember that in a few months time.
I find a combination of the viewers’ average rating and the Box Office Mojo revenue numbers a decent proxy for whether or not I’ll like a movie (assuming a given movie isn’t a genre I dislike or have an actor I dislike, etc).
A friend’s review: “Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.”
Well, at least is isn’t “Tetris: The Movie”
Adding: I might see it, if it is playing along with something I really want to see at the local drive-in. But I won’t go out of my way just to see it.
