Check out Flixist’s review of Pixels

‘We need quarters to do our laundry’

Hi! Nick Valdez over at Flixist has just reviewed Pixels, a film starring Adam Sandler and some video games you might have heard of. Here’s a little bit of what he thought: 

I really have no idea where to start with this. Usually when I sit down to write a review I’ll have an angle by which to tackle a film, but with Pixels, I’m at a loss. I don’t really know who the film is for. Is it a comedy appealing to gamer culture? Nope…unless you’re still playing Pac-Man. Is it for kids? I wouldn’t think so since it’s got so many jokes they wouldn’t understand…until you see Q’Bert peeing himself. Is it for the 30/40 year olds who would remember these arcade games fondly? Not really unless you hate yourself for not growing up. Is it even for Adam Sandler fans? Uh, no to that either since he’s lacking the bite he arguably still has. 

So what even is this? Pixels is a film that would’ve excelled in theaters about thirty years ago with all of the bad and good implications that come with it.
