8-bit Invasion
20 December 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

Now this is how a combination of CGI and live-action footage should be.

"Pixels" is a pretty clever and well done short, which made a great tribute to several 8-bit Games, putting some elements of those video-games in a Disaster-movie context.

The result is highly enjoyable to watch, being able to achieve in less than 3 minutes a genuinely spectacular and original disaster movie, being much better than stuff like "Independence Day" and "2012" in every single aspect.

Apparently a feature length film inspired in this short is going to be made in the year 2014. I just hope that it keep the same level of quality than this.
