Forgive me for I have sinned…I went and paid money to see Pixels. And you know, it was not quite as bad as I was expecting.
Now to be fair, I was expecting to see a steaming pile of dog excrement, so the bar was a bit lower than normal. Let’s be honest, the reviews were brutal. But the plot was actually coherant and the movie was professionally made. The CGI worked well enough, the casting was good for the tone they were going for and all that. Disagree? Well, that’s easy enough when the plot is ridiculous. A movie this silly allows for a lot of leeway in casting.
Sure, Kevin James as the President of the US was a stretch, but so what. I just kept telling myself he was elected by that party that will elect anyone and it just worked.
