htxt.africast – Pacific Rim, Ready Player One and Uber
Ready Player One has a good message about friendship, empathy, acceptance, rebellion, living your best life and doing what's right, so the film itself is wholesome while also touching and amusing. I thought the adaptation very clever, with the stakes in the real world much higher than they were in the book.
Still, Spielberg shows that he's just as capable as he ever was in making a rip-roaring spectacle. He parlayed that gig into roles opposite Matthew McConaughey (Mud); Nicolas Cage (Joe); John Travolta (The Forger) and the part of Scott Summers/Cyclops in the X-Men series.
It's been five years since the death of OASIS creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance), a fizzy-haired Steve Jobs-meets-Willy Wonka nerd deity who left behind a trio of Easter Eggs - hidden clues - in his game.
With the exception of The BFG and The Adventures of Tintin, the Oscar-winning director has mainly stuck to adult fare in the last decade. "Honestly, he's probably one of my favourite sci-fi directors, so this was so cool". ReadyPlayer One is the ultimate popcorn movie, with the added bonus that Spielberg actually has a lot on his mind here as well.
The movie's message is a predictable one, and it lands only due to Rylance's tender portrayal of Halliday, the shy, awkward and kind-hearted genius who's ultimately responsible for everything that happens here. They made me happy - being introduced to the worlds of Pokemon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros. and Disney's classic animated films.
The buffet of pop-culture references are a blast, too, even if they seems heavy on Warner Bros. properties - "Ready Player One" - and apparently differ greatly from the books. Are you a gamer?
The special effects going back and forth to the real world and the OASIS was, for me, what seemed like it could have been hard.
Steven Spielberg thinks that the sliders from Carl's Jr. are "pretty good", but he's not happy the fast food chain tried to use his name to drum up some publicity for their "SpielBurgers".
"You're just supposed to get the story and go along for the ride".
By "it", I mean once again make a film for the ages. Now that Wade has learned to appreciate reality and the relationships forged there, how far would he go to save the people he loves? Yet the book has time to develop the characters in ways that a movie often can not. Were you surprised he did that? I never should have doubted him. Or is the movie so brilliant you don't want to see it ruined by a sequel?
Jaws would have been awesome in there. Humanity escapes their desperate surroundings as avatars in the OASIS, a virtual reality universe. Heck, even the film's exposition-heavy opening few minutes - we're talking about a serious data download here - doesn't weigh things down.
The legendary filmmaker says he got to live in the imaginations of author Ernest Cline and co-screenwriter Zak Penn in this dystopian, futuristic world full of '80s references and virtual reality possibilities for three years. The film loves the 1980s as much as you do. So once Steven came on it was like 'Steven Spielberg's on it now.' There was a team of people working on it and producers and people at the studio, but you knew if it could be gotten Steven would get it.
Although he had worked with motion capture on The Adventures Of Tintin and The BFG, with this film Spielberg wore a VR headset, and used cutting-edge technology to direct his cast in a virtual environment. These characters have very human problems that all of us experience today, in 2018.
