As mentioned, I don't play and never have played video games. I went on a VR rollercoaster once and absolutely loved it but thats the most I've ever interacted with the world of VR.
That being said, I didnt think Ready Player One was really going to be all that exciting.
BOY, WAS I WRONG.
Any movie that opens with Van Halen is going to be good.
I saw it this Saturday and was comepletely blown away. I was laughing, crying, the works! Plus there were a ton of hilarious references that even I got! Lots of great movie references and well more well known references (I got Halo, Overwatch, and Gundam haha a few more but yeah it was flooded with references)
There's the Iron Giant and tons more move references, an AMAZING soundtrack, and a really positive but interesting message.
