Review: Wreck It Ralph

For family fun last Saturday night, we decided to watch the animated Disney movie Wreck It Ralph. We all love video games, and the premise – of a downtrodden villain growing weary of doing villainous things, and wanting more – seemed appealing.

My kids mostly play their video games online on their PC, or on their consoles, or on their smart phones or ipods.  When I was a kid, if we wanted to play — we grabbed our quarters and cold hard cash, met up with friends and headed to the local arcade. To spend hours dropping quarters into machines.

But, what really goes on INSIDE those arcade video games?

And thus begins the story, of an 8-bit villain, wanting to be a hero…

What’s Hot: Minecraft Style (parody of PSY’s Gangnam Style)

Love PSY’s “Gangnam Style“? Love Minecraft? Captain Sparklez puts it all together for you, with some epic animation…

My kids told me about this video when I asked what they would like for their morning wake-up song. I said, “But, it only has 2 million views!”. They said, “Yeah, Mom, it’s new – like, it’s been up for like, 2 days.”

Oooooohhhh, sexy piggies…

What’s Hot: Revenge – Creepers Tryin’ to Steal All Our Stuff (Minecraft parody of DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love)

One more brilliant Minecraft parody, to add to your collection – taken from Usher’s hit DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love.  Thank you, Captain Sparklez.

P.S. I use all the Minecraft parodies and songs to wake up my kids in the morning.  They make a great get-up-and-go alarm clock!  I play them on my Droid, and just leave the phone in their room  until they all get out of bed. #evilmom #mwahaha
