Saw Ready Player One on Blu-ray and I have to say that I loved it! Now that was an enjoyable couple hours.
I'll just leave
a little space
for those who
want to back
away before they
read any spoilers.
I loved a lot about this movie. Most of all I enjoyed seeing all the references to other movies and how that was built into the storyline. I definitely want to go back and see it a second time, this time watching specifically for references.
It was neat because it referenced back to the early days of video games - I know I'm not the only one who remembers pong! - all the way through to the future. Which, given that I have family members who have virtual reality glasses and sit there with them on, looking silly as they emerse themselves in the video game, isn't really that far-fetched at all.
The storyline was good. They characters were great - I especially liked seeing how they all looked outside of the game compared to their avatars. And the running gag of the kid who was eleven which was such a surprise to everyone who knew him from the game first was fun.
The bad guys were really bad. And the kids got everyone involved. As I said, I loved all the references to sci-fi/fantasy movies and games through the ages.
I definitely reccomend this one simply on it's own merits.
