Ready Player One

Ready Player One

This is by no means one of the most anticipated films in the Spring season and this film, some say, will put Wreck-It Ralph to shame, as Ready Player One brings cinemagoers to a whole new experience that is more than enough to blow everyone's minds off because of the geekdom all rolled into one melting pot of awesomeness.

Based on an Ernest Cline bestseller novel, this sci-fi action adventure stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance. Set in the year 2045, all of humanity are leaving their derelict reality behind and live in a virtual reality world called the Oasis where it's like heaven, only virtual. The Oasis is where people are free to be who they want to be but with the sudden passing of its creator, he releases a video where he challenges its users to find his Easter Egg which will give the finder a fortune. That's where the main character of the story comes in as he will risk everything to find the Easter Egg and save the world, whatever lays ahead.

This film reminded us of some that mashes up our favorites such as Wreck-It Ralph and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? because this film jumbled up all of our favorites geeks and nerds can easily recognize such as the DeLorean time machine from Back To The Future, the spaceship from Cowboy Bebop, The Iron Giant, and handful of video game characters including those from Overwatch, all rolled up into a melting pot of mind-blowing masterpiece Steven Spielberg can think of and while some say that this is have overdone it because it jammed up too much pop culture references like fitting so many stuff in a small backpack, Ready Player One is a tour de force that makes us shocked with awe, astonished us with surprises, faked out with twists, and many more, all in the name of geeks and ners waiting to get some more.

While this flick is not for the faint at heart, those moviegoers who are brave enough to watch it can be considered themselves dignified because Ready Player One is a film made for the dignified, not for the regrettable.

My rating: 4.3 out of 5.
