Film Series: Wreck-It Ralph

Storm Advisory: As long as the Goldsmith has power, the Film Series is ON.

2012. USA. Dir: Rich Moore. With John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman. Animated. 93 min.

Tired of living in the shadow of his do-gooder nemesis, arcade game villain Ralph sets out to prove he can be more than the sum of his programming. One slight hitch, though: he may have inadvertently unleashed pixilated Armageddon. Disney’s latest delivers both thrilling adventure and delightful nostalgia.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
