Nintendo “Pixels” Tweet Backfires

I would genuinely like to know who imagined a Pixels movie would be a worthwhile investment and was therefore taken seriously and not fired. I mean come on; it makes the world of gaming starring Adam Sandler as credible as Donald Trump becoming president. Just like to add an addendum here, if the business tycoon is sworn in after the US elections in 2016 and takes place as leader of the US, then no one remind me of this article.

Obviously Nintendo misread public opinion and thought it would be a great idea to tweet the following which is below.

Perhaps the company meant to change the words Donkey Kong with “person who came up with this idea”, keep hammer before erasing Pixels Movie and writing fingers instead. This Tweet plummeted to earth in flames with a selection of the following responses from irritated fans.

“@NintendoAmerica remove Adam Sandler and then I’ll watch.”

“@NintendoAmerica grab a hammer to smash your computer with when you start watching the trailer”

“@NintendoAmerica I hope this causes Nintendo to never lease out their properties again.”

“@NintendoAmerica You only had one job…”

“@NintendoAmerica how can you sleep at night”

I wonder what the target audience Nintendo had in mind while sketching the concept for this film. Hardcore gaming fans will despise it, casual gamers will not identify with it and non gamers simply won’t be interested in paying money to watch it. This is the problem with corporate companies; all too often business individuals will try to force a product on consumers with the “They will buy what we tell them to buy” attitude. Hollywood is all too often like McDonald’s, it delivers processed fast food goo which strips away any originality from the product before leaving an unrecognisable husk.

Who made this film? Columbia Pictures Industries which is part of Sony, who won’t be getting hacked this time for personal details concerning this film? Sony Pictures.

    I will only guess that the author is about 20 years old, so I will understand that a movie about games that are NOT Crysis or newer, is something strange and pointless for him.

    I haven’t seen the movie, I don’t know how bad Sandler is in it, but I bet it will be better than many other films to pass 1.5-2 hours. As an idea this film looks at least interesting.

      I dunno if it is “better” than other films, but it got 19% in the rotten tomatoes ratings. Heck almost all review sites rated it at that range.
      I like the idea though they got it wrong with casting Sandler. Dinklage seems good in it though.

        Google for MovieBob and watch his video about Pixels that he made about an hour after having gone to see the film. It is…interesting.

          I’ve already watched it a few days ago and I was far more entertained by his video than when I watched Pixels. :))

      This has absolutely nothing, whatsoever, to do with the authors age, and more to do with the fact that this film is a gigantic pile of crap. Though I will understand that, clearly with you being old and infirm, the idea of people forming an opinion that differs from your own can be a frightening thing.

        I like how you escalate your post to a personal attack. I like also how in the second part of your post, you do exactly what you accuse me, that I am doing. Probably all those insults are a kind of self-criticism? Or just a kind of dissociative identity disorder?

        My comment about the author’s age was based on how he starts his article

        “I would genuinely like to know who imagined a Pixels movie would be a
        worthwhile investment and was therefore taken seriously and not fired.”

        This comment has to do with the idea of a Pixels movie, not the final result.
