Ready Player One Movie

Recommended Posts

Morning, All. 

 

Went to see Speilberg's new film yesterday....

 

Very well made, incredible special effects (clearly, there is NOTHING that can't be put in a film, now).

 

I can't help feeling that it was essentially a kid's film trying to be an adult's movie (two or three scenes which are definitely not for younger kids and one use of bad language / many uses of a harsher term for "doo-doo"). The ending was sugary enough to give you Type II Diabetes, but this is a Speilberg movie, after all. 

 

Don't let my comments put you off seeing it - it's a movie designed to be seen on a huge screen, with the sound cranked up to 11. 

 

Anyone else seen it?

 

Chris.

I saw it last weekend and it was a really enjoyable movie, full of 80/90s music, tv, movie and game references.

The book is excellent. Much better than his follow on called Armada (not as equal either, totally different)

I have to admit that I squeaked like a little girl when I saw the RX-78 Gundam in the trailer.:blush:

Definitely on my ‘watch list’.

Saw it in IMAX earlier this week and really enjoyed it. 

 

There's a bunch of differences from the book but they made sense to me and I think it stands well on its own.  

 

Might have to pick it up on Blu-ray when it comes out to see/find all the '80s and' 90s bits that have been slipped in.

saw it last week, il be honest the whole movie just p'''sed me off. taking all the stuff i enjoyed in my childhood and stuffing it all together for fan service.
take away all the stuff they ripped off from other properties and what are you left with? a D-grade advernture movie.

I saw it last weekend, with my son and grandkids, really liked it.

I never try to make too much out of these things, one can lose all the fun by overanalysing.
