Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spends their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone-the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the Oasis to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends-aka the High Five-are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS.Written by
Parzival's belt in the Oasis has the Thundercats (1985) logo on it. The belt itself is the same style as Han Solos. See more »
The Sixers are likened to drones, no names, no identity, to the point that when they zero out, they can jump to another rig and carry on as if nothing happened. However, when Samantha/Art3mis uses the rigs (and the loyalty pod), her usual Avatar appears in the oasis, although no obvious facial scanning takes place. Furthermore, she's also able to access her personal inventory (And change her appearance) even though she's on the IOI Sixer account. See more »

Ready Player One is inoffensive enough to be entertaining but gets a bit stupid when thought is put into it.
Ready Player One is a very fun movie with the very experienced Steven Spielberg behind it. Visually its stunting, full of glaring moments and Spielberg-esque choreography and sound. The musical score too is done in a similar fashion, adding to the aesthetic pleasure of the film.
That is when Ready Player One starts to go downhill. The first major issue are the spoon fed pop culture references (especially the 80's) to today's adolescent audience. The film thrives on them and it starts getting overwhelming and annoying after a few.
The second issue is how much watered down the film is from the book. All of the sticking points of book are completely ignored making the books relatively dark narrative feel soft in the film which is almost insultive to the book.
The final major issue is the illogicality of the plot. How is one kid able to find all the answers to the OASIS but a whole company of man and women working together isn't?
Besides from the film being stupid and illogical it still manages to be mostly fun from start to finish is and worth of some praise for it vigorous visuals.
Final Grade: 6/10
