In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Disney Turns Arcade Game Villain Into Theatrical Hero

Posted on Friday, February 10 @ 15:00:00 Eastern by

Leave it to the House of Mouse to take video games and turn them into some kind of redeeming plot point in a major motion picture. The images above and below come from Wrek-It-Ralph, an animated feature from Rich Moore. You might recognize Moore from work on The Simpsons, The Critic, and Futurama.

Wreck-It-Ralph tells the story of an old-school arcade-game bad guy who wants to be the modern-day good guy:

When a modern, first-person shooter game arrives featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch), Ralph (voice of John C Reilly) sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game with a simple plan—win a medal—but soon wreck everything, and accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens every game in the arcade. Ralph's only hope? Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman), a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game who might just be the one to teach Ralph what it means to be a Good Guy. But will he realize he is good enough to become a hero before it's "Game Over" for the entire arcade?

Sure, it can sound a little hacknied summed up like that, but just looking at these shots, I'm giving the movie the benefit of the doubt.
