Besides the inevitable jokes about the fate of our world being in the hands of its ~mixed cast of Sandler/Gad-led losers, Pixels is any video game fan’s dream blockbuster apocalyptica – a canvas of pure [& strikingly-CGI’d] retro 8-bit porn traversing every major ’80’s classic in live-action. 7.1/10.
Plot Synopsis: When aliens intercept video feeds of classic arcade games and misinterpret them as a declaration of war, they attack Earth, using the games as models. Knowing that he must employ a similar strategy, President Will Cooper (Kevin James) recruits his childhood pal, former video-game champ and home-theater installer Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), to lead a team of old-school arcade players and a military specialist (Michelle Monaghan) in an all-out battle to save the planet.
