| Ready Player One: Considerably better than I expected
There seem to be two camps as far as Ready Player One is concerned, those who have read the books (Who tend to dislike the movie) and those who haven't (Who tend to like the movie). I'm in the latter group and am very thankful for this.

When the trailer came out I was unimpressed and didn't get onboard with the hype at all, yes I was impressed with all the pop culture references and characters but I figured it would be all flash and no substance.

Thankfully I couldn't have been anymore wrong, Read Player One has plenty of substance, emotion and charm and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Set in a near dystopian world where people use a virtual reality world called the Oasis to escape their lives it tells the story of one player and his efforts participating in a competition that with decide the fate of the entire universe (Oasis).

The plot if fantastic and very well handled, the movie looks like a billion dollars, the cast did a decent enough job and the pop culture references though thick and fast didn't overwhelm the movie like I feared they would.

From Overwatchs Tracer, Streetfighters Chun-Li & Ryu, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Iron Giant, Chucky, Freddy Kreuger, Mortal Kombats Goro, Gundam, Mech-Godzilla, King Kong, and countless more I being a big ol'nerd really appreciated this. Combined with the incredible mostly 80's soundtrack it's a sight to behold.

The movie wrapped up nicely and went in directions I didn't expect, I'm suitably impressed and would love to see more.

If it's very different than the book I understand peoples anger, for me however this was fantastic.

The Good:

Looks amazing

Solid plot and delivery

Pop culture references are charming

The Bad:

Honestly nothing springs to mind

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I'm still not impressed with Gundam

People CAN swear in Spielberg movies

Old Simon Pegg looks like a tall hobbit

Artemis is the offspring of an elf and a porcupine

Trivia

Alan Silvestri worked closely with director Steven Spielberg to achieve the right direction for the original musical score that would not only be distinctive but would not allude to any of the film's 1980s and 1990s pop culture references, and also evoke and enhance the film's story and tone of optimism, innocence, beauty and a sense of wonder and old-fashioned adventure that many Hollywood films of the 1980s and the 1990s utilized to great effect. In an interview with "Entertainment Weekly", Spielberg said of Silvestri's musical score for the film, "While all sorts of culturally iconic references populate 'Ready Player One', the score that Alan Silvestri composed is completely and intoxicatingly original. It's bound together by multiple themes that identify plot and character and is infused by such percussive adrenaline and soaring strings that Alan has made 'Ready Player One' appear to fly."

Goofs

After Wade puts out a general call for help at the Columbus stacks and directs Helen to go there, she makes a right-hand turn. When the camera cuts to show the back of the van from the rear doors looking forward, Wade and the other three lurch toward the right side of the van. They should have been pushed towards the left side due to the turn.
