UNDERRATED: 'Wreck-It Ralph' (2012)

"Brave" may have taken home the Oscar in February, but don't overlook this surprisingly charming look at the hidden lives of video game characters. From Jack McBrayer giving pixelated life to Kenneth the page from "30 Rock" to John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman's endearing turns at the film's center, the movie's a wonder of agreeably moving parts and in-jokes that transcends its subject matter's eight-bit roots.
