I'm not putting any major spoilers in here, but this is....easily the best film I've seen all year. Can't remember the last time I saw an animated film that made me feel happy and sad at the same time (in addition to making me laugh). The closest thing I have to a 'critique' for the film would be that I sort of thought Ralph would explore more than just two other games (Hero's Duty and Sugar Rush) in addition to his own, but otherwise it's really difficult for me to think of anything I didn't enjoy about this film.
Also, just so you know: pop culture references, references everywhere. (and done in a way that was funny and not irritating at all). Plus, at first I wasn't sure if Vanellope was going to be a character that was going to be irritating or not, but she was actually really funny and I actually felt sorry for her at times omg. (Kinda glad for that because I hate it when a bunch of people rave to me about a character in a series or a film and they turn out to be really obnoxious or annoying instead of funny or cute like everyone said they supposedly were). But, wow, Ralph, you are my favorite animated movie antagonist of the year. He's funny, he's nice, he's not overly naive, and he doesn't really put up with stuff when it gets in his face and he breaks shit with his fists. Dude's easily my fave.
And from the trailers you get this feel that it's gonna be like, "oh Vanellope is an outcast and Ralph is a villain who wants to be good and together they band together and form a team of unlikely heroes and work together to save the day in game land, blah blah" but it went above and beyond and made it emotional and fun and really immensely quality in how they dealt with the characters and their problems and how they interacted with one another and I personally didn't think it was eye-rollingly predictable or tedious because how they handled the characters and...I'm just incredibly impressed with this film.
And just....euggghh the animation, the feeling, the relationships between characters, the plot, the plot twists, just wow.
Disney, you done good. You done real good.
It's already been several hours and this film is still making me smile.
