Pixels 3D Movie Review

Risking another badly reviewed film, but this time were surprised its not as bad as the reviews are saying. In fact quite liked the nostalgia and retro looks and sounds of this movie! Basically a VHS tape (remember those) of a 1982 video game tournament is sent up in a NASA probe, discovered by aliens who take it as a challenge and come to earth in the form of those video games to invade us. Its upto the Arcaders of 1982 to save us, by challenging the aliens to various life sized versions of those old arcade games. Looooads of characters make an appearance along with the big hitters of Centipede, Galaga, Pac-man and Donkey Kong. The action is quite high and the pixels look good in 3D, the comedy is light, occasionally dying in places, but as I said no where near as bad as the reviews said. A nice trip down 80's memory lane.
