"Fantastic movie"

I haven't seen this since I saw it at the cinemas but I reckon it's worth buying. Steven Spielberg has done a great job at directing this movie.

"This is not the book, and that's a good thing"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ok, I need to come clean: I couldn't finish Clines' original work. Too dark, too depressing, and it didn't feel that interesting in a world where we already have AR, VR, and online gaming.

The movie next-levels this experience by focusing on what's important: the characters. This is mostly about Wade and Samantha, but not exclusively, pulling in the other 3 members of the High Five. It's a fun, action romp with an OUTSTANDING sound track, leaning on excellent casting.

This last is tricky. Much of the story takes place in the virtual, where Wade becomes Parzival and Sam becomes Art3mis. The actors Sheridan and Cooke need to bring nuance and color to voice-only roles, and they really bring the rain. While the SFX are glitzy and full of shine, they definitely come across as Avatar-level CGI; it's the character voices that make the screen come alive.

The story revolves around their quest to control the VR gameworld they inhabit. Their actual quest is about companionship, and what's really important in the world. The message isn't lost on me as my Facebook feed tries to assure me the planet is a dumpster-fire. People are still people, wanting simple connections, and that's the real prize the High Five wage war over.

There are a lot of inside jokes that fans of 80s movie culture will enjoy. Viewers familiar with particularly video game pop culture will enjoy this movie the most, catering to a wide-spectrum audience for fans of iD, Blizzard, and other game franchises.

I didn't expect to like this, but I've now watched it twice. Let down a little by some over-candied CGI, this is an otherwise excellent experience for viewers of all ages.

Description

Ready Player One

Set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse, but the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
