Ready Player One

I am most definitely not the demographic for the adaptation of Ready Player One. That said, a car chase 14 minutes into the film doesn’t ring as very creative, even for fluff entertainment. The blatant use of pop culture references should have felt like homage. Instead it felt like the writers lacked creativity. I get that the tech guru had a thing for cheesy pop culture, but that just seems too easy. It’s so cool that the earth will be destroyed and people won’t care because everyone will have virtual reality to live in. Ok, what? Still I’m glad Blondie and Earth, Wind, and Fire got some royalties. I left after about 45 minutes. Felt like the people holding the money made too many creative decisions on this one. 2 out of 5. Next.
