Description

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name. The film is 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.

    Steven Spielberg’s newest picture isn’t an amazing film by any means, but strong visuals and performances anchor wild action sequences and end up as a purely fun time at the movies. 7/10

    So, I adored the book. The movie kinda sucked compared to the book. The characters were not developed well, and the plot moved too quickly. This was my opinion when I watched the movie when it first came out. I decided to rewatch it this weekend, to see if my opinion would change. It did...somewhat. I still think that the movie sucked compared to the book, but, if you watch it without reading the book, or watch it before reading the book, you’ll probably like it. There are tons of cool little references/ Easter eggs in there and...yeah. The Shining bit was probably my favorite part.

    In my own opinion Steven Spielberg is a good director who has made good looking films with the least bit of entertainment and story logic that crawls inside your brain. Now when i saw the trailer for Ready Player One that was undeinablely a passion project for Spielberg i was down right excited because right after i saw Schindler's List i was rooting for more, sure Steven Spielberg knows how to create good storytelling and interesting characters to make his movies worth the watch. Now i was going in Ready Player One thinking should i watch this movie because for what i heard (not from the critics) from my friends was that it's dumb and not so colorful indeed. Ready Player One was a generous cultural phenomeon right after it hitted release. Needless to say Ready Player One isn't Spielberg's best intent into making a movie set in the future times and in the virtual world it's set in the 80's, the premise is flushed out and riddled with no colorful effects to outcome the setting of the 80's world when your presenting the 80's style of filmmaking you create music or stylish costumes for your look of the movie and every chocie that was given for this futurstic movie was anything but gathering dust. But there are few visual effects that do work out in some parts of the movie and the movie exist only to make people can say do you remember this film from the 80's yeah i guess what Spielberg's idea was that the audience can have short term memory loss when it comes to forgettig pop culture references. Iam not saying Ready Player One is a brilliant logic for filmmaking but instead all i found from the movie were other references from other pop culture movies that wasn't necessary and untentionally hailrious, don't get me wrong the casting choices were descent but carried a bunch of bad character development so that we can dive into the creative "80's style virtue" that is Spielberg's own imagination. The color panel of the so called OISAS was dirty and to foggy for a world set in the 80's were that are many colorful set designs and classical music that the virtual world can rock to. It's like Steven Spielberg's best idea was someone witn Alzameri's can remember forgotten references. Anyway Ready Player One is a lacklusting embrassment for many reasons because that the source material and premise felt more like Tron than Steven Spielberg's creative ideas because whenever a reference is introduce adds nothing to the story at hand when it comes to remembering a pop culture reference the movie falls apart completey. Now all the performences from the actors were rushed and to untentionally funny momments that were suppose to be serious and i can't take any of this movie very seriosuly if your planning on seeing Ready Player One expeting it to be the greatest movies ever made you don't have to because it is a hailrious bad comedy.

    Very entertaining movie and highly recommend. Regarding everyone giving it 1 star for not following the book, that’s garbage. Maybe doc 1 or 2 stars but it’s definitely not a 1 star movie. Get over yourselves
  • Great movie
