I watched Ready Player One. I didn’t plan on watching it until my mother mentioned about Facebook’s new company Meta. I had read that Mark Zuckerburg was inspired by the book. So I decided to see the movie. No, I haven’t read the book yet. I think I’m getting the audiobook once I finish the book I’m reading. The movie has
Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, Mark Rylance, Philip Zhao, and Win Morisaki in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence.
In this movie, a guy named Wade wants to win a contest where he could win Oasis (a virtual universe) and the money from the creator who had died. (Like Willy Wonka) He saves a girl who ends up helping him with clues to the keys to win the contest. He has other help too. He figures out the first clue before anyone does. A cool clue indeed. They also go into The Shining. Not so cool. In the end he does win the contest.
I liked this movie. I will listen to the book and the sequel later. Next week I’m watching Ex Machina.
