2.0 out of 5 stars A Romp, 8 Sep 2013
I love the Peter Davison era of Doctor Who. The chemistry with the TARDIS crew is pretty well established and 90% of his episodes are greatly enjoyable to watch and have a lot of spirit and charm in them, and often do pretty well to draw the audience into the sci-fi world, even with such a limited budget.

To those who haven't seen the movie what I'm about to say may seem really profound but here we go. Wreck-It Ralph is not only on par with Toy Story, but I'd go as far as saying that it's the spiritual successor to the series.

Wreck-It Ralph is about Ralph, the villain to fictional game "Fix-It Felix Jr". In the world of Wreck-It Ralph, all the machines in the arcade are connected and characters can move freely from game to game once the arcade is empty and have a community of their own going on inside the games, and villains are sneered at despite not actually being bad people themselves. Ralph, tired of being treated poorly for being a villain, attempts to travel to another game… Read more
