LAMBScores: Arcade Gaming with A Kung-Fu Denzel

by Nick Powell · November 25, 2012 · Featured, LAMBscores · 1 Comment

This edition of LAMBScores features a wide variety of titles. From Disney’s video game animated epic, Wreck-It Ralph, to the Denzel, substance-abuse drama, Flight. We also see if RZA’s directorial debut, The Man with the Iron Fists cements him as a legit Hollywood man behind the camera. And just for safe measure, we thrown in the rather obscure and “unique” film, Holy Motors. As always, you can join the discussion and add your own scores in the LAMB forums

LAMB Bites:
The Movie Waffler: “The film is unlikely to be considered one of Disney’s best films, but it’s certainly one of their funniest.”
The Movie Review Warehouse: “Ralph and Vanellope are a pair of lovable outcasts that make this so much more than a cute exercise in video game nostalgia.”
The Cinematic Katzenjammer: “The film is a hilarious adventure through a nostalgic past that manages to create its own memories along the way”
Rorschach Reviews: “It still doesn’t have quite the same punch as classic Disney, but the movie combines emotionally rich characters with a surprisingly well-formed plot to easily rank alongside the best animated films of the year.”

LAMB Bites:
Film Actually: “Denzel knocks it out of the park”
Two Dude Review: “An intense look at the power of addiction”
The Sanity Clause: “The film is a stirring, suspenseful and even hurtful portrait of alcoholism, but it is studio film-making that takes us for a ride, proving that some people need to embrace the edge to even stay upright.”
