‘8-Bit Christmas’ Review: You’re Now Playing With Power

The Power Glove, a short-lived, infamous cheesy peripheral for the Nintendo Entertainment System, was released in North America in late 1989. “8 Bit Christmas” takes place, in the words of brooding narrator Jake (Neil Patrick Harris), in “1987 or 1988”, but it has a lot of power glove, the horror of which actually sets the plot in motion. This may seem like a banal anachronism. But it’s a typical film attitude toward nostalgia, relishing links at the expense of inconsistencies. At one point, teenage heroes brandish a 1989 Billy Ripken Fleer card; in the next they move on the hobby “Children from the cabbage fields”, which happened in 1983. It’s as if the vague memories of the decade turned into a vague sentimental mess.

“8 Bit Christmas” (aired on HBO Max) is a warm and heartfelt holiday comedy where he doesn’t curry favor with roller skating rinks, Goonies posters and Casio watches. Director Michael Dawes gets good, well-founded comic play from his child actors (especially Max Malas as the adorable eternal inventor named Jeff), as well as a surprisingly rich twist from Steve Zahn, who is in between that and White Lotus. ” time is doing one of the best jobs of his career. The interaction between loving, open-minded Zahn and his Nintendo-obsessed son (Winslow Fegley) is the heart of the film, and – when they don’t discuss the virtues of 8-bit video game consoles – their relationship is poignant, gentle and calm. affecting. But the film is constantly distracting with signs of that period, and while it might be compelling, its boomboxes and Trapper Keepers get in the way.
