Aliens, video games, 3D - Pixels sounds out of this world, right? Find out what level its really at in the Kidzworld DVD Review!

When aliens misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, they attack the Earth using games like PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede and Space Invaders as models for their various assaults. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler) to lead a team of old-school arcaders (Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet.

The Bottom Line

You can access 2 different levels of Pixels on DVD and Blu-ray in 3D! A lot of movies these days offer a 3D experience, but Pixels is one of the few where it actually deserves it - you have to admit, it's crazy to see PAC-MAN in action when he's the shape of a mega-beach ball! The idea behind Pixels is silly but hilarious, and veteran comedians Adam Sandler and Kevin James make something ridiculous even more fun.

The Pixels Blu-ray and DVD include a ton of bonus materials, like the music video “Game On” by Waka Flocka Flame ft. Good Charlotte, and two featurettes that take a look at the beloved games featured in the film.  In “Q*Bert,” the adorable digital bit hopper comes to life, while “Dojo Quest” gives viewers a look at the new classic arcade game that gave life to the unstoppable Lady Lisa (Ashley Benson).

Pixels on Blu-ray has six additional featurettes, including looks at all the classic arcade game characters featured in the film - retro game fans will love “Creator of the Machine,” which shows PAC-MAN creator Toru Iwatani on-set, talking about his experience and what he thought of the movie.

This movie is basically a nerd's dream, so if you're into games/outer space/comedy and/or special effects, then you already have more than enough reasons to pick up this Blu-ray. Did we mention 3D?
