Please note I have not read the book, I have only seen the movie.
When having to choose the rating of 1 to 5 stars on Vudu, where we watched this movie, I was going to leave it up to Brainwise but he told me to pick. So I slowly clicked each star, waiting for his response. When I ended up at the fifth star, Brainwise exclaimed “I’m so happy you liked it.”
And like it I did. It was different, it was clever, it was interesting, it was fun and it was really well put together and done.
I liked the casting for each role and while I don’t play many video games it wasn’t beyond me and I did recognize a lot of the characters in the movie. The only part missing for me was they did explain the title, Ready Player One. Now I did know it before the movie but for people who watch that don’t know it is a shame they didn’t include it.
I loved that the movie was a love letter to video games and their creators.
I also loved that it was all about depending on each other, creating a team and a family in the process and finding your true selves. Stories we can all use right now.
Since I didn’t read the book I can not comment on the complaints people had about this movie. I don’t have any overall. I recommend this movie. Since I only have 4 paws as the max on this blog, I give it 4 paws and a tail.
Ready Player One
