Ready Player One’s movie adaptation just came out in theaters and… it’s okay. Not great, not terrible, just okay.
It has some great visual effects, really exciting action scenes, and a genuinely interesting mystery (at least when they’re in the Oasis searching for Haladay’s Egg). But it suffers deeply from forgettable characters, poor dialogue, and a horribly dull dystopia in the real world.
So yeah. It’s a typical teenage dystopia, much like Hunger Games, Divergent and Maze Runner. But this one has video games!
I was about to ask why this one was so popular, but I think I just figured it out.
Are we really that easy to swindle?
