    Maybe because I'm not this huge nerd like the target audience I suppose should be... but I was at some point actually bothered by all the references contrasting the blandness of the few original things. I mean, wouldn't people playing this game want to create some more original stuff? I mean sure, I know many people would wanna be a character they know... but I mean SOME people might wanna be unique and original, avatar vise.
    Another thing I had a huge issue with is Sorrento's avatar. I mean, you hire this very flexable actor who acts with every inch of his skin and you give him an immovable plastic CGI blob to work with. WHY??

    Looking back, the script is really quite bad, and relies too much on references and nostalgia.

    I just wish the film had a tiny scene showing T.J. Miller's character I-Rok or the person playing as the avatar I-Rok, as a freak out reaction in the "real world" when he lost 10 years of shit! Lol

    This movie is great, but I can't say the same about the directing. I do think Spielberg is a great and influential director. Just not in this. The way this film was presented, everything was way overly rushed. Like way way. From super terse exposition. To nonstop glib shot after glib shot all the way through. And it's not even a minor problem. It's an enormous thing appening constantly that gets in the way of it from being a better movie. Thus on top of really really gaping holes in the story that aren't just improperly fleshed out. But totally just not possible in a well written story. Yet a glaring aspect of any story/show/movie that is cheaply written. Thee keys? OK - obvious trilogy. Thus solving all of these problems. Improved shot durations for much better filmmaking. More fleshed out story and characters so things make better sense with improved writing overall. Thus a 6-8 hour trilogy for a movie with much better filming and story.

    I wonder how this movie is going to age, I think fan service can be fun to see, but it's just distracting and kinda annoying when rewatching the film, I know many of you like fan service, but this is just my opinion

  • Bibzuda7
    Bibzuda7 Year ago

    The main thing I really hated (just saw this today) as a difference from the book was that they didn't at all try to portray Wade's struggles with being low level and having no money in the OASIS. In fact they don't even mention the levelling at all i don't think which I feel added quite a bit to the story of the book, like how he couldn't hunt as much as others etc

    This movie joins my VERY VERY short list of movies I HAVE to own a physical copy of. I've already pre-ordered it from Amazon, can't wait until it finally releases and gets dispatched. I feel like I have to show my dad this movie since he was quite the nerd (like me XD) back in the day, he'll probably spot more older references than me.

  • Ben Harmer

    I read the book and saw the movie. Spoilers... I was really missing the hunt for the gates and the original challenges from the book. For instance the first key quest is a DND module that ends in a game of Joust vs a Litch king and the 1st gate challenge is acting out the movie War Games.
    The romance between Art3mis and Wade was done better in the book too. Each challenge takes place and then there's a big gap of time before the next. They get time to know each other and Wade saying he loves her does not come out of left field. They also don't meet face to face IRL until the very end, which adds to an emotional payoff much more.
    All that said I enjoyed the film a lot. It did capture the spirit of the book well. I particularly enjoyed Mark Rylance as Halliday. His acting was top notch and I really felt for his character. I think most people may like this film more if they haven't read the book first, but I am an exception. I liked it despite its differences. The book and the movie are both experiences that while somewhat different carry much of the same message. They both should be checked out and experienced with an open mind.

    Mr. Hippopotamus Year ago +1

    As someone who never read the book, I thought it was just a fun movie pretty much all the way through. Halliday was 12/10
    But I refuse to believe no one drove backwards on the race. Shit would have been done in the first hour. People are also crazy smart at figuring shit out. The Elite Dangerous community once figured out where a set of alien ruins were among 400 BILLION systems with who knows how many planetary bodies because they used to stars from the dev stream to coordinate a map to it.
    That's pretty much my only gripe. The did have the best use of "fuck" a pg13 movie can get away with. I haven't snort laughed in a while

    The only challenge that was the same, now that I remember, was the playing of the Adventure game.

  • 12chapin
    12chapin Year ago

    It would have been cool if they had included the part where Parzival had to go through the whole WarGames movie to complete a challenge. None of the challenges from the movie were on the book. Also, in the book there wasn't just a challenge to get each key, but there were also challenges to open each of the gates. So there were 6 challenge total in the book. There were also riddles the characters had to solve to find out the location of each key and gate. Which weren't in the same place.

  • Lightly Salted
    Lightly Salted Year ago

    It was a 9/10. I can't fault them for doing it this way, but when the final battle was happening and you see people playing in the streets, they never run into the wall or something in the real world that doesn't correspond with the Oasis. It's not the same as running in place with that stationary treadmill.

    Again and again I am astounded that Spielberg manages to make really good films, but always fails at the endings. I really wonder, why this is.
    In this film I want to be more forgiving and actually look at the ending as an omage to 80s action movies. So a lot of things that don't make sense, like the boss chasing personally after the van with a gun out of character just to be able to be picked up by the police, the company showing up exactly at the place where Watts / Parzival is without trouble lokating him, while before this was a big deal, all this rush in wrapping things up all of the sudden, I can forgive with this explanation. The atmosphere of the ending kinda reminded me of the Ghostbusters ending, so yeah, I am willing to overlook these things.
    BUT: The whole meeting with the creator-scene in my eyes was bad. Mixing the action that was going on in the real world with the quiet theme of the creators childhood home just didn't work for me. And Spielberg really killed it with the "hint" that Parzival was not talking to Hallidays Avatar but to something else. It really was unnecessary and din't tie into the story. This film was not about a ghost in the machine. I wished, they would have left this out.

    Saw the movie yesterday. It differs a lot from the book in essential parts but it was really enjoyable.
    I dont see this in the 9/10 ... nah not nearly. The world was kind of unexplained in many parts, as you metioned, too. So the stacks were ... well there and thats all.
    For me the characters did behave kind of strange as well. They team up pretty much instantly and its also more or less just explained via commentary "Oh and I told it Aech and he had a friend called Daito who he also told how to get the key ... and Daito had a friend Shoto and told him." aaand suddenly they knew each other and teamed up. It was a bit too fast for me but okay.
    The challenges were more like logical challenges then skilled ones. And the riddles were kind of too easy. In the book it also took very long for the first challenge and then the other ones are solved faster, but I think it was still at least 1 or 1,5 years in the book, and not weeks.
    The lovestory was hardly understandable. My girlfriend said that after watching the movie (she didnt read the book) she felt like the movie was build around that lovestory a little bit. I had to tell her, that in the book this part of the story goes vastly different. It is part of the story, yes but all the readers of the book know what I mean.
    The CGI was fantastic in many .. well almost all scenes. Only the character animation ... well its 2045 and today we have better character animations at least in cutscenes. And if I look at the technology they use, Id expect a bit better job at that point.
    What was also kind of strange was, that everyone on the street was wearing VR gear ... And moved on reality like in the Oasis. Id expect many dead people from that, when they fall off things or fall into things. People would bounce against each other all time if that was so. I think in the book they also did not run on streets with the gear, they had done this in closed places.
    Also I highly missed the leveling part of Parzival. It was mentioned at the very beginning, that he is not a rich character, but the progress he gains with leveling explains why he is so powerful at the end. That also would have given Daito and Shoto more chances to be developed in the story.
    And the resitance part .. well it was okay, because they needed more screentime for the other Cast except of Wade / Parzival, as the book only concentrates on his character in Real Life.
    But I found the plot and the development in the book much better. But as I said they had to change that.
    Id give it a very solid 8 / 10. I found it too much Nerd-Fanservice with a too slow pacing in the middle part and a not enough explained world, to get a 9 or even a 10.

    Why are people Clapping? You clap if it's good you idiots. What was goo in this was the things you've seen elsewhere. It's Games Fan movie, full of all the crap from the most famous games. It's not a movie that gamers would like. For bit sake there was a Russian movie Avalon (2001) that MANAGED to do the Virtual reality with Real Life People scenes. All this movie did is a crappy cartoon for 15 yearolds. But full of retro reference for 40 years old. Member Berries got us again.
