Movie Review: Ready Player One

Movie Review:  Ready Player One

Ready Player One is a LitRPG movie based on a book by the same name written by Ernest Cline.

The movie takes place in 2045 and has a lot of 80’s pop culture and songs to feast upon. Wade Watts, like everyone else in this dsytopian society, lives to play in the Oasis. However, the creator of the online multi-deminsional system has died several years ago and left the ‘keys’ to his kingdom in the game. When Wade (aka Parzival in the Oasis universe) stumbles upon a clue, Nolan Sorrento CEO of  Innovative Online Industries (IOI) tries to recruit him or will do whatever it takes to win ownership of Oasis.

I really liked this movie.

The first preview I saw was only the race part which I wasn’t interested in as I thought it was a virutal reatlity racing movie. However, that is a much smaller part.

Although this movie did have some plot holes, overall I really enjoyed it. There’s great effects, action, and a bit of romance.

However, if taking kids, there are a few scenes from the movie The Shining and the Chucky character that might be disturbing to some.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 poster.pngBlade Runner 2049 continues 30 years after the timeperiod of the original Blade Runner movie. It stares Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling as K. The special effects were really good though some took getting used to with back-and-forth images of K’s girlfriend.

K finds evidence that replicants (bio-engeineered humans who are born in adult form) have produced an offspring. Through investigation and tracking down one of his own memories, he believes he is that child.

A few twists in this movie and they definately steer you to where they want you, but overall a good SciFi show. I’d have liked a longer, romantic ending, but that’s just me 🙂

My rating 4.6 stars out of 5

Movie Review: The Shape of Water

Movie Review: The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water (film).pngThis Fantasy Romance was directed by Guillermo del Toro and written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor. It stars Sally Hawkins as Elisa Esposita- a mute custodian. She works at a high-security government laboratory and falls in love with captured humanoid-amphibian creature.

I liked this movie except the darkening dinner scene. But I still enjoy  Pan’s Labyrinth better.

Special effects were astonishing and the love story was sweet at first. However, parts of the movie went too fast and others seemed to drag a bit.

The acting was superb especially Sally Hawkins and I especially loved Octavia Spencer as Zelda Delilah Fuller, Elisa’s co-worker and friend who also serves as her interpreter. Just her facial expressions alone said a thousand words.

Movie Review – BayWatch

Baywatch poster.jpgDwayne Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon (not the original Mitch) and runs his beach with an iron fist. Then newcomer, Brody (played by Zac Efron) is from Iowa and is a two-time Olympic gold swim medalist. He gets on the life-guard training program with Mitch and both clash. Brody doesn’t do team-work well and the two have many funny moments.

If you liked the original BayWatch with LifeGuards solving crime, then you’ll enjoy the movie.

I thought the movie was okay with even a cameo by David Hasselhoff playing the first ‘Mitch Buchannon’.

My rating 3.0 stars out of 5
