Scathing Review Says "Game Over" for Pixels

Scathing Review Says

Tomorrow, Adam Sandler's newest film Pixels will be hitting theaters. The premise sounds cool enough. Aliens use classic video game characters to attack the Earth and it's up to Adam Sandler, Josh Gadd, Michelle Monaghan, and Peter Dinklage to save the day. Seems like it could be a pretty good movie, right?

Wrong, says reviewer Bob Chipman, better known as MovieBob. In a hilariously scathing ten minute review, he tears the movie apart pixel by pixel. He refers to the film, among other things, as a "cauldron of tepid room temperature yak piss," "the burning of the Library of Alexandria by way of the Hot Topic t-shirt printing press," and (my personal favorite), "using original Monets to wallpaper the port-o-potty in an IBS symposium."

MovieBob does a lot more than just clever name calling. He criticizes nearly every aspect of the movie, from it's nonsensical plot to its lack of landing jokes, it's a horrible representation of women to its celebrity cast that surely have better things to do. He destroys the film much like the film's protagonists destroy beloved video game icons except the review is actually thrilling to watch.

Even if you don't see Pixels  --scratch that, especially if you don't see Pixels  --give MovieBob's review a watch, which is almost guaranteed to be much more entertaining than the film itself.
