  1. “Jules” and “Verne” were the two sons of Doc Emmet Brown (and the teacher he rescued) in Back to the Future III, so at least in one (fictional!) Universe, they were two people…

    Oh god. I played a couple of Ratchet and Clank games…couldn’t get into them. There’s nothing wrong with them, just not for me.

    But seeing this movie get lambasted like this.. I’m now worried about the Sly Cooper movie (which I’ve been more excited for as I actually do like that series)

    • Honestly I think they are over reacting. Notice how Brian said “its not bad” and then changed his tone when brad started slamming on it. As a person that has played both the game and the movie, I can honestly tell you that the movie, isn’t bad, Its not really good but its not bad, and the same won’t happen to sly cooper because sly cooper won’t have a game coming out with it. Whoever was in charge of editing the movie and the video game did a horrible job on both of them there are a few scenes in the game that would have been better off in the movie, and a few scenes in the movie that were unnecessary and would have been better off in the game. As well they should have added more too the movie like a good 15-30 mins with Ratchet and clank having more screen time together to build a relationship. Since they made ratchet bumbling a good place to fit this into the movie would have been the assault on the Ranger defense station, or maybe some bits about ratchet with clank on his back excelling in the training course. The movie and the game suffer from split syndrome and the director didn’t do his job right.

      As I said you don’t need to fear for Sly, it will be a much better movie.

  3. I liked Ratchet, as someone who’s a pretty big fan of the games. It definitely was not a perfect movie, but it was a decent, kind of forgettable film. And remember we’re talking about a video game movie here, so that basically makes it far and away the best movie of its kind ever made. It’s way better than Mortal Kombat.

  4. I knew I wasn’t going to see Keanu despite my love of cats since I can’t handle gore. I’ve never heard of Swiss Army Man. I can’t wait for that review.

    I kind of wanted to see Ratchet & Clank since I have at least one of the games from the series but since it wasn’t getting much press, I was getting a bad feeling. And yeah, I was right. D: NOOO! Another critic said that this movie reminded them of the Phantom Menace as well. *sadly shakes head* Although, in this movie’s defense, maybe since the first video game came out in the early 2000’s, they were going for the feel. Oh, and at this point, it has made about $2 million. One last thing: I only liked the first Ice Age and that’s it. I think I was in late elementary school though. It still holds up though.

  5. Chris Stuckmann mentioned the theater was empty as well. He also mentioned it should be a straight to DVD/Netflix release. I think that’s why this review seems to start at utterly mediocre and then gets more critical. The idea of paying theater prices for something they couldn’t be bothered caring about kind annoyed them more as the review went on.
