RE: Ready Player One
@Polekatt @ShiftySatchmo I enjoyed the book, but felt that it was The DaVinci Code for geeks. Where DVC was just Renaissance painting after artist after European location, RP1 spent so much time trying to prove how awesome it was by dropping names & games that it didn’t actually bother with writing an amazing story or characters.
Armada is even worse.
I’ll still watch the movie, but my hype is held in check… Ready Player One needed Spielberg onboard to give the movie as much chance as possible to get as many licenses into it as possible & I feel there will still be substitutions required (there seems to be an awful lot of Iron Giant in the promo shots), the only previous movie to attempt this (and succeed) was the Lego movie.
