8-Bit Christmas

"8-Bit Christmas" is a heartwarming, nostalgic movie that takes us back to the magical world of the 1980s, particularly centered around the holiday season. This delightful film transports viewers to a time when handheld gaming consoles and iconic video game soundtracks ruled our lives. Released in 2021, "8-Bit Christmas" is directed by Michael Dowse and features an ensemble cast that brings the story to life.

The main protagonist of the movie is a young boy named Jake Doyle, portrayed by the talented child actor Archie Yates. Jake is on a quest to obtain the hottest Christmas gift of the year, the elusive Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Accompanied by his friends, little Jake embarks on a charming and hilarious adventure, reminiscent of an '80s version of "A Christmas Story." Along the way, we meet a cast of colorful characters, each contributing to the joy and mischief that ensue.

Neil Patrick Harris stars as the adult Jake, narrating the story from the present day. Harris beautifully captures the essence of nostalgia as he reminisces about the incredible lengths he went to in order to get his hands on that coveted NES system. Moreover, his storytelling creates a heartfelt connection between generations, reminding us of the power of childhood memories.

In addition to Harris and Yates, "8-Bit Christmas" boasts an impressive supporting cast. June Diane Raphael plays Mrs. Doyle, Jake's understanding and supportive mother, while Steve Zahn brings life to the character of Jake's father, Mr. Doyle. A notable mention goes to Conner Del Rio, who portrays Jake's best friend, Mario Rodriguez, an equally determined and hilarious young boy who aids him on his pixelated journey.

Beyond the captivating storyline and talented cast, "8-Bit Christmas" also stands out for its captivating soundtrack and atmosphere. The film beautifully captures the magical ambiance of the 1980s, complete with its iconic sounds and melodies. From pulsing 8-bit chiptune tunes to classic Christmas carols with a retro twist, the soundtrack takes us on a euphoric journey down memory lane.

Ah, yes. The annual Doyle Chicago shopping trip.
Ah... right.
Ain't gonna lie. That's a tough one, kid.
All I could talk about.
All in the name of Nintendo.
All kinds of strange things to children in Japan.
All November, all December, that's all I could think about.
All of it!
All other distractions became irrelevant.
All over town, the boys in green pounded the pavements
All right, come on, get up. I'll get you a cab. Come on.
All right, fine. Maybe Meg Platt, Steve Dybsky,
All right, go, go, go!
All right, you can take that off now.
All right.

All right. Take a deep breath.
All right. You're feeling better?
All thanks to Lizzy.
All those wreaths for nothing.
All you're gonna have to do is go to the library.
Also known as my dad's least favorite
An amazing showing...
And a snack drawer better stocked
And at Christmas time that's just perfect.
And Claude Lemieux is still jawing away.
And Coach.
And could never quite finish the kitchen.
And did I mention how much I like your sweater?
And every kid at Mary Todd Lincoln Elementary was at his mercy...
And everything else.
And Farmer is off the phone.
And Farmer.
And future CEO of Hodges Industries.
And give her a big...
And Grandma and Grandpa won't get you one...
And guess what happened Christmas morning?
And has his pocket picked by Shane Corson...
And his lunch was almost exclusively tuna.
And I didn't get the chance... until now.
And I love this time of year.
And I need to make a phone call.
And I stopped appreciating what I already had.
And I was stuck next to a kid eating erasers like Tic Tacs.
And I'm not the only one who thinks that, by the way.
And if you don't give me back my Trapper Keeper right now
And in second place...
And it was every kid for themselves.
And it's also against the law.
And it's extremely rare.
And just like that, it was gone.
And late night skygazing with Trotter for Soviet spy planes.
And make it back to the bus before Olsen ran out of puke.
And most expensive day of the year.
And Mrs. Keane are outside the store.
And my mom got me these boots. And I hate them, too!
And now...
And scouts are supposed to have honor,
And stop fiddling with the hand plane.
And stuff oozed out of his nose.
And that's when I saw it.
And that's when it hit me.
And the adult beverage refrigerator case at the gas station.
And then a dog was crushed by a TV.
And then when you're done...
And there she was, glistening in all her gray plastic glory,
And there was nothing we could do about it.
And there, high above the frozen dog poo
And they have baseballs on them.
And this.
And this.
And this.
And this.
And we were celebrating the city's centennial.
And what's your retainer doing out of your mouth?
And whatever we could find we'd build, like,
And work on the fort tomorrow?
And you could get her to agree to stuff she wouldn't normally agree to.
And you have no idea that they have a lot of money?
And you left school early yesterday
And you really feel that video games promote violence enough
And you're doing all these bad things, all the time...
Another great Christmas.
Any Chicago team.
Any of you huddled masses care for some Nintendo?
Anybody had a chance now.
Apparently, video games have been doing
Approaching Michigan Avenue.
Are our teachers.
Are special.
Are we gonna have a snow day today?
Are you even in this troop?
Are you gonna cry now?
Are you gonna make me?
Are you gonna sell us a black market Cabbage Patch Kid, or what?
Are you kidding me?
Are you making all this up?
Are you okay?
As I sat there and watched Timmy Keane
As I slowly tried to grasp the situation
As long as I didn't run into any major obstacles
As the vast majority of his time
At a hotel, I think, in downtown?
At first, I thought, "Maybe no one will notice."
Awesome story of all time.
Back off, Jack!
Back then, people were more close minded about fashion.
Back then, they were a death sentence.
Baseball cards, Farmer.
Because I am now going to tell you the story about how I got my Nintendo.
Because I've always wanted a sister. Stop interrupting me.
Because it still hasn't been picked up.
Because the World's Fair was here...
Because they need to get done, that's why.
Because Tom Cruise needed you to stunt double for him?
Because we know that even when we blow these candles out...
Before I knew it, the entire mall was chanting my name.
Before you start work on their retainers.
Behold the Power Glove...
Besides not losing my retainer or my sister
Best kid ever.
Best Patch in the Tri City.
Billy Ripken.
Blackhawk fans around the world,
Blah, blah, blah. Whatever.
Blast away an inch from the screen to his evil heart's content,
Blue Bird, this is Rambo One.
Boom! You can give up now.
Boop. Boop.
Bring it down now. Video game over.
Built forts in the woods.
But an 8 bit entertainment system.
But Christmas can still be great.
But eventually it'll be like nothing happened.
But for some reason, I started playing the game of my life.
But I can't get what I want?
But I got some ketchup on my sweatshirt.
But I just don't have it in me to laugh right now.
But I love my mom.
But I managed to sell a whopping 47 wreaths to the nursing home.
But I thought Loyal Ranger Scouts were for boys.
But I thought that it was an Asian tool brand, like Makita.
But I was gonna get one on my own.
But I'll tell you what, this tree fort turned out to be a pretty great present.
But if you ask me...
But if you gave her a third task to juggle, things got dicey,
But it is possibly the most amazing, dangerous,
But it turned out, I didn't know what was about to hit me.
But it's Teddy.
But just to make Christmas shopping
But my friend, Mikey Trotter, saw it.
But now...
But Timmy Keane lost his dang mind that day.
But tonight, I was a man on a mission.
But we'd later realized a horror that defined our generation.
But we're eating.
But what do we say?
But who's with me?
But you can still have a good Christmas.
But you left out the best part.
But you said I could get one for Christmas.
Bye and bye.
Cabbage Patch Kids don't make you fat.
Camouflage, check.
Can I help you boys?
Can I text Maeve from your phone after?
Can we ask about the Nintendo?
Can we go back in the bus now?
Can we turn on the Christmas carols?
Can you...
Can't read Jenny Jablecki's handwriting on this, Mom.
Care Bears are for babies.
Careful with the varnish.
Check, check. Over.
Check, check. Over.
Cheer up!
Chop, chop, chop!
Christmas was dead to me now.
Come here!
Come here.
Come here.
Come into a little cabbage?
Come on in here and help me.
Come on, buddy. Thumbs up.
Come on, come on.
Come on, come on.
Come on, Dad.
Come on, Farmer. Now we're never gonna get in.
Come on, guys. We still got each other.
Come on, let's play.
Come on, man. He's 11.
