Hold on to your seats as the Ready Player One movie gives you an amazingly nostalgic ride while venturing in different dimensions!
Ready Player One is one of those movies that you literally want to be in, gamer or not. Who wouldn’t want to escape the harsh reality right? This movie brings you more than just that! Director Steven Spielberg has blessed us by giving us a taste of the OASIS in the big screen. It falls under the Action and Adventure, Science fiction and Fantasy genre. It’s rated PG-13 for its little nudity and language, violence, of course, and some bloody images brought to you by Warner Bros. Pictures, and written by Zak Penn, Ernest Cline.
OASIS is a place created by James Donovan Halliday where people can escape the ever stressful and problematic ‘reality’. The movie is set in year 2045 at Columbus, Ohio (relocated from the book’s Oklahoma City) where people stopped solving problems in the real world and just started “escaping” from it. You can go anywhere, do anything, and the only limit in OASIS is your own imagination. Just like every great creator, they need to have an heir to continue their legacy. That is why Halliday designed a contest to find the worthy heir of his fortune.
What completed Ready Player One is the references of pop culture and cameo appearances of our favorite video game characters!
You shouldn’t even blink while watching this movie because you might miss one reference. Usually, movies from novels are disappointing but Spielberg did a good job in keeping it together. Fans of the book shouldn’t worry too much. Sure there are definitely changes from the book. But these are necessary, to match the modernity of the present. The story is somewhat predictable but it has this element of keeping the watchers excited to see what will happen next. Probably, the way the main-character Parzival and his gang solved the challenges are what kept its audience’ attention.
It is an action-filled thriller movie at first then switches up to sci-fi which makes you crave for more! Every detail in the movie is carefully made and you wouldn’t wanna miss any of those. It keeps you hooked to the story, while also keeping the viewers on the lookout for references.
Ready Player One movie is not all about keeping your geek fantasies alive. It also gives you a wake up call.
Despite all of those games you’re playing, the film reminds us that “Reality is the only thing that is real”. You might be confused on what it means, why don’t you watch the movie and find out for yourself?
