Looks like fun!
I heard that the Rhino was from Altered Beast and I also heard that Dr Wily was original in that villian help group but was cut from that seen.
Looks like fun!

Here's a supposed "true" list of characters cameos including Kano & Smoke from MK

My feedback thread
I wonder why they wouldn't go with Scorpion or Sub-Zero, since they're probably the two best-known/popular characters in the MK franchise.

I feel like I've seen this plot before. It's not exactly Shrek or Megamind because neither of them were bored with the status quo. Maybe Nightmare Before Christmas with games instead of holidays?
It's hard to explain, but I really am turned off by gaming characters in movies (or in general). I think the Warcraft characters look pretty neat (so naturally they aren't in any movies), but I see King Koopa and the other villains in this and I feel as turned off as I would be looking at Pokemon or Twilight. I know, I feel like an old grump and I'm not even 40. "What's wrong with kids today, they're not perfect like I was, and hey GET OFF MY LAWN!"

Yes!!!! Qbert your back!!!! I haven't seen you since Saturday Supercade.
Did anyone see this over the weekend? I did and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The story was pretty darn good. My only grip (which is minor) is that most of the movie ends up taking place in the (made up for the movie) racing game "Sugar Rush". It's not bad, but I wish there had been some more changes in environments than what there were. Still, it was great overall, and I really want to see it again!
There's a lot of cool cameos and references.
There's also a kind of neat little 'Easter egg' at the very end of the credits. It's not an additional scene or anything like that (so don't expect something like what happens at the end of the Marvel movies). But rather, something neat happens with the Disney logo. Hint (for those who know what I'm talking about), it's a reference to a certain "phenomenon" that happens in the very, VERY rare occasions that people actually reach the very end of some old arcade games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong.
The end credits are also just kind of fun to watch as there are a lot of cool visuals in the background throughout them.
But more on point, the movie was a lot of fun, and something that I think any gamer would really, really enjoy. Check it out if you haven't already!

I enjoyed it a lot, and am glad I had sense to stay through the whole credits. As a guy who still mains Zangief in SF games, I got a kick of reading why the director made him a bad guy despite not really being one outside of some other media (and the director voices him to boot)
Great movie, I already wish there was a sequal.
Amazing movie. Very original. Absolutely loved it. Kids did as well. Blew away brave which was pixar. I actually think pixar is falling behind and disney itself is clsing the gap. UP, cars2, and BRAVE against tangled, bolt and wrech it ralph??...
Cant wait to talk more about this movie though and about a plot point.
This movie was excellent. I went in not sure what to exactly expect and came out very pleased. It was funny, it had a lot of great one liners and puns, it had some awesome video game references in there, not to mention the gaming characters, but used them to advance their own story instead of just relying on those to sell the movie. I am very surprised and happy to see it turn out well. This is probably Disney's best movie since The Princess and the Frog. Heck, I wish this had been a Pixar movie because it was way better than both Brave and Cars 2 combined. Not to mention the short before the movie was incredible in both style and execution.
Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
Not out in Australia until Boxing Day but from the trailer I've seen this look awesome.
Rob Kerr- 1979-2006. I will always love you.

I still liked Brave better then Wreck it Ralph.
Bolt was not good at all.
Tangled is a great movie.
Cars 2 was only made because Disney made them so how hard would try on a money grap project that you didn't want to begin with.
Toy story 3 was awesome.
While Wreck it Ralph and Tangled were the first good disney movies in years, two movies does not make disney better then Pixar.
The more I think about this movie, the more I really, really want to see it again (soon!) and the more I hope we get a sequel.
I keep thinking of some really cool possibilities for a sequel! (I'm putting my thoughts on this in spoiler tags because I will reference a few things from the movie, but they are very minor spoilers at best)...
I know when this movie comes out on Blu-Ray, I will buy it right away, and I plan to do a back-to-back double feature with this movie and Scott Pilgrim VS. The World!
Ironically for me, there's an interesting parallel for my personal interests in the movies that you listed on both sides. On both sides there is one movie that I really loved, one movie that wasn't the best IMO but was still really good, and one movie that I haven't seen....
I absolutely loved Wreck It Ralph, and I really loved Up as well. While the Toy Story 'trilogy' are my absolute favorite Pixar films, after that Monsters Inc and Up are amongst my favorites. Admittedly, I probably enjoyed Wreck It Ralph more than Up, but mainly because I've been a gamer all of my life, with my main interest being in the games of the 80s and 90s (though I still play the current systems), and there were A LOT of references from that era in this movie. So, in that sense 'Ralph' has the advantage just based on the subject matter. So, that's kind of a win for the Disney side, but as King Gilskull pointed out, John Lasseter was involved, specifically he was the execuitve producer, and he originated with Pixar and directed many of their big hits. Also, I have to pay more attention and read it in full, but there was some kind of statement in the ending credits of 'Ralph' thanking the Pixar Team or something like that (by the time I noticed it, it was at the top of the screen scrolling up), so even though this wasn't technically a "Pixar movie", it sounds like there was a lot of help from that side of things, and I think it shows in the end result. This is probably the best non-Pixar movie that Disney has made in a LONG time IMO.
Then there's Cars 2 and Tangled. I enjoyed both of these movies well enough. Neither were "great", but neither were "terrible" either. I didn't think that Cars 2 was as bad as some people made it out to be. Yes, it is a low point for Pixar, but frankly Pixar's low points are still better than many of the mediocre to awful offerings from Dreamworks and even most of the CGI animated films from 'regular' Disney (not including Tangled or Wreck it Ralph). As for Tangled, it got A LOT of praise, and when I finally saw it, I liked it, but I thought it was rather overrated. To me they are both roughly of equal calibur.
As for Bolt and Brave, I haven't seen either of them. The advertising didn't really "pull me in" for either of them. Though Brave looks better than Bolt to me. I'm probably going to go ahead and "blind buy" Brave when it comes out since as I said above, even the 'lesser' Pixar films tend to be pretty good. Bolt just doesn't look good to me at all. Granted, sure, it's hard to fully judge the movie without having seen it, but it just seems to be of a similar calibur as other Disney films like Chicken Little and Meet the Robinsons that frankly feel more like the more mediocre films that Dreamworks puts out than what Disney is usually capable of (I'm also not saying that everything that Dreamworks or other animation studios put out is bad, but there tends to be a few stand outs and a lot of very forgettable movies IMO). I did see Meet The Robinsons, and it wasn't bad. I enjoyed it to an extent.... but while I wouldn't refuse to ever watch it again, I doubt that I'll ever go out of my way to do so either.
So, all in all, IMO it's Pixar for the win with these comparisons, though it is kind of close based solely on the movies listed. But when comparing Pixar's overall body of work to the overall CGI offerings of Disney animation (or even almost all of their animation offerings, both CGI and traditional, for a little over a decade now), Pixar wins by miles, with "Ralph" kind of leaning at least a little in Pixar's favor anyway for the previously mentioned reasons.
If they do a sequal what video games/characters would you like to see?
