THR and Variety saw the movie earlier in the week and their reviews are unanimously positive:

That's encouraging, leemac. I've been a fan of the subject matter and premise of the film, but worried that the execution would be mediocre. Hopefully, Ralph will be successful at the box.

My family and I haven't seen a film on opening weekend in years, this will be the exception, we are so looking forward to this movie and the positive reviews thus far have me elated.

My whole family saw Wreck-it Ralph and loved it! Adults in the audience laughed a lot with the old Nintendo and even Atari game gags, but at no point did it not connect with the kids as well. Really a fun and touching movie. Love the way some of the old video game characters move.

I also just saw Wreck-It Ralph and thought it was great. Great story, great animation. Well worth your time and money.

Wreck-It Ralph is an extremely good movie.
The story, production design and even the different styles of animation in the different video games all work.

Thumbs way up from me too. Get thee hence to the theater.

One note here for those that ain't seen it yet .... The last song in the credits is worth sticking around for, since those clever Disney peoples got Jerry Buckner to record a very 1980s-sounding song about Ralph and Felix, and it's GOOD.

Who is Jerry Buckner? Half of the duo that had this smash hit in 1982: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...ONIvP6kI

Sadly, Gary Garcia died almost exactly a year ago. The song is credited to Buckner and Garcia in the credits.

LOVED THIS MOVIE! Vanellope Von Schweetz is a great character all around and I think Sarah Silverman has a good chance of winning the Annie Award for Best Voice Acting. The plot was simple, yet sweet (no pun intended). The plot twist was very surprising for me. SUPER DETAILED TOO! The roasting marshmallows as torches at King Candy's castle...love!

The biggest surprise though was Paperman. An incredible form of animation paired with a great story, two very sweet characters and a superb score (I want that on iTunes NOW!). I hope this gets the Oscar this year. People in my theater applauded after the short, something I have never seen for a short. Disney did great with Ballad of Nessie, but that paired with Paperman shows that Disney is back in the short business!

Question for all...with Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph...could we say that this is a Second Golden Age? Tangled=Little Mermaid, Wreck-It Ralph=Beauty and the Beast (in order purposes). Winnie the Pooh could be the Rescuers Down Under equivalent :) Thoughts?

>>could we say that this is a Second Golden Age? <<

Mermaid & B&tB ARE the Second Golden Age.

My gut says "no" to this being a third golden age, though. At least not as of now. The earlier golden ages were marked by groundbreaking artistic achievement, and a "house style" that made the movies easily identifiable as Disney. Good as these new films are, and with full acknowledgment of the CGI character animation advances in Tangled, nothing spectacularly groundbreaking happened in either movie. They're also both tilted heavily in the direction of commerce rather than art. They're well-made crowd-pleasers, rather than aspiring to the artsier goals of a Wall-E, Bambi, or B&tB.

Also, WIR wasn't really identifiably Disney. It could just as easily have come from any of the other major animation studios, most of which have made at least one just-as-good-if-not-better movie in the last few years.

Let's just say we got two really good movies from Feature Animation, and are hopeful for a third. Golden age? No. On a roll? Yes.

I think comparing Pooh to RDA is giving Pooh WAY too much credit.
