Ready Player One (Action 2018)

This was a movie where I actually read the book first. Who would've thought right? The book was better but that's not to say that the movie wasn't good. It was, but they did change a bunch of stuff in the storyline. I guess that goes to show where books can be better in building up suspense, characters, and develop the plot more. If you see the film and think that it's a bit rushed at times, just read the book; it had a more solid pace to it.

So yeah this movie was full of nostalgia so I'll give it hella brownie points for that. I'm slower and older now so it's nice to see lots of characters from almost every single video game and/or movie from my past. Its cool that this story even exists.

If you didn't watch movies or play video games throughout the 80s-2000s then most of the references or music/sound choices will make sense, and it may seem like an odd, mediocre film, but if you were even mildy exposed like regular humans, then game on. Although it wasn't super solid, I have been waiting for this film for about 3 years so yeah...it was worth it to see in the theaters.
Rating - A
