Now that I’ve seen Pixels, I can confirm that the movie is crap.
However, it’s not any crappier than most other crappy movies so it’s not like it’s the cinematic equivalent of the antichrist or anything.
It’s just another stupid Adam Sandler movie and if you don’t go into those expecting to be disappointed, you’re just kidding yourself.

Now to be fair, there were a few chuckle-worthy moments, mostly around Peter Dinklage’s character.
Unfortunately there weren’t enough of them to be strung together to make a movie from them.

I have only 2 non-Sandler related complaints about the movie:
1) If it was meant to be an homage to 80’s videogames, it failed miserably. I feel like the premise could have been done so much better.
2) Futurama did the premise so much better in a 5 minute segment 13 years ago.

Oh, and the 16-bit version of the entire movie that runs during the end credits tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the story without forcing you to sit through the movie.
Unfortunately, it’s like milk at the back of the grocery store and you’ve gotta slog through everything else just to get to the thing you want.
