Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2

Ralph Breaks The Internet
Directors: Rich Moore, Phil Johnston
Writers: Phil Johnston, Pamela Ribon
Cast: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Ed O’Neill, Alfred Molina, Alan Tudyk
Studio: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 112 Minutes
Release Date: November 21, 2018

Wreck-It Ralph saw Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) as a pair of lovable arcade sprite misfits in an animated film about acceptance, identity, and self-worth. The film is that perfect blend of humor and heart supported by terrific animation and video game nostalgia. It’s been six years since we last saw the two in a film whose ending seemed perfect. Now we are getting a sequel. Don’t worry, it’s not about Ralph and Vanellope causing trouble in the arcade. No, this time the two go to the Internet in Ralph Breaks the Internet, a play on the very popular phrase when something goes viral. While not as strong as the first, the film goes far beyond humoring with all too easy Internet tropes and gags.

There’s plenty of emotional depth and some surprises that will have you wanting more. However, the pacing and editing are just some of the issues that slow things down. But it’s not enough to ruin what is a fun sequel. Check out my full review below.

Game of Thrones

It’s been a long, long wait for fans since Game of Thrones season seven came to a close over a year ago now. And while that wait will continue into 2019, as we learned in July, all we knew as of then was that it would be sometime in the first half of the year.

Now we have something to finally focus in on. HBO has announced that Game of Thrones season eight will arrive in April of 2019. The perfect time to kick off the show’s final season, considering that all but two of the seven seasons premiered in April. And one of those two began just one day before April.

HBO made the announcement with a video, which you can check out below.

Alita: Battle Angel Trailer

The release date for director Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel has been pushed back for far too long. But now it looks like it has finally settled on a release date. Though the film was set for a December release, it’s new date does give us a chance to get a better idea of what the film is.

While most know it as an adaptation of the manga of the same name, Alita’s Pinocchio-esque story is expected to be action-packed and thrilling, as noted by the very exciting new trailer. The film follows a scientist (Christoph Waltz) who discovers and rebuilds a damaged cyborg named Alita (Rosa Salazar). However, what Alita doesn’t realize is that she is has untold secrets. The kind of secrets very powerful people like Vector (Mahershala Ali) is after. Check it out, below.
