Storyline

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 Warner Bros.

Trivia

Another 80s reference is the bag of Doritos on the passenger side of the van right after the cataclysm goes off and they find Artemis wandering in the street, and after Wade's uncle Rick punched him and he fell on the floor, a pack of Doritos with the same design can also be seen on the coffee table at the background. unless they remade the iconic logo in a nostalgic re-release of the famous nacho chips, in the year 2045, they'd be toting around (and/or eating) a 60 year (give or take a couple years) bag of Doritos.

Goofs

Besides being an overwhelming large chunk of the "real" economy, the OASIS has players running night clubs, repair shops/manufacturing and mercenary services. It also sells, from an in-game store, very dangerous grieving weapons that someone could use to kill all the players in a large area - and combat is enabled in places including a very high-end nightclub. Yet there's no sign of anyone offering banking or insurance, both of which are more central to any economy than service businesses. See more »

Virtuality blended with Reality, good but...... not perfect....!
29 May 2020 | by Xenos07See all my reviews

Sorry, no hate to Mr. Spielberg but the story is kinda missing something, maybe not ardent enough. Honestly I'm a big fan of him since he's a masterpiece creator of films but picking youth films at this age not gonna lie doesn't suit him. Adding so many references from past films made it quite interesting. There's tons of good motion picture directors that could make action scenes bit intense, frightening but....I'll take it. Kudos to OASIS.........
