Here is my review for “Ready Player One“. Okay this movie is funnnnnnnnn as fuck! The film starts off with this poor kid named Paralyzed and all he has in his life is a Video Game World. Ya know the real world sucks and if you can be a transformer or some shit then you would be happier. The guy that created the video game world is dead and now there is a contest to find some keys which will get you all the money and you will own the Video Game World and cheat codes. The Video Game World is a happy place where you can get laid and hang out with Teenage Turtles all day. So everybody wants those keys even the “corporate assholes”. Paralyzed meets a girl and some other friends in the Video Game World and they all work together to win. They should have had a video game orgy. In the end we realize that in the game world you can be anyone, but in real life you are ugly. Also Iron Giant shows up and you literally die screaming!
Okay this movie was so much fun. I loved watching every minute of it. I have always loved a good “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” golden ticket plot, and all of the references in the film are nuts. There are so many, that you can’t figure them all out or even see them all the first time. It’s like a thousand easters eggs waiting to be found and licked on. When you seen one that you know you love it and are happy/ scream. Goro from Mortal Kombat showed up and I died. Tye does a pretty good job as Parzival and I loved his Avatar. He sells it. Also Olivia Cooke really is great in it. I have loved her in everything that I have seen her in. I believe her. I loved their video game best friends too. Lena Waithe plays Aech / Helen and she is funny and cool. Philip Zhao plays Sho and Win Morisaki plays Daito and they were fun in it too. I just wished they had been in it more. The “2 kids in love” plot is boring and predictable, but you roll with it because a Gremlin just ran by. They should have worked it from a “He is in love with her soul” angle. Like it doesn’t matter what she looks like on the outside. It’s her personality and inside that matters. They really didn’t do that. Maybe it’s not in the book and Steven S. is to chicken shit to get that real about love. It could have been a cool message though. Meanwhile a straight white dude falls in love with a straight white girl. Not there is anything wrong with that. Some of my best friends are white and straight. They did imply that Lena Waithe’s character is a lesbian and/or Bi. So that being said if you can get over the basic plot then this movie really is fun as hell. It really felt like you were watching an 80’s movie. Basic plot included. Go see that shit or buy it on blu ray and pause that shit everywhere.
B. THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN IN THE MOVIE BUT SHOULD HAVE!
This is in the movie though! CHUCKY!
D. Iron Giant and GORO from Mortal Kombat are in this movie! Also here is a link to a lot of the shit in the movie. http://www.vulture.com/2018/03/here-are-all-the-references-in-ready-player-one.html
H. There is a scene inside the movie “The Shining” it’s amazing and nuts. You will be like WTF!
I. Alan Silvestri composed the score and he is brilliant and I love this score too. Here is a sample. He has composed some amazing scores over the years. Cat’s Eye, Predator, Back to the Future, The Abyss, Death Becomes Her.
