Ready Player One

Just got home from seeing Ready Player One. Without a doubt, one of the funnest most enjoyable movies i've seen in a long time. It's an absolute must see, especially for fans of the 80's. When Mecha-Godzilla joined the battle, I darn near lost it. So funny and so awesome at the same time! Go see this movie! FYI...there's ONE F-Bomb spoken in this movie and it is one of the most well placed and appropriate F-Bombs ever! LMFAO! You'll love it!

Spielberg really nailed this movie! It's a release day Blu Ray buy already for me.
No excuses!

    Nice!
    I just read this book last year, and it's one of my favorite reads. I have to say, the movie looks like it's pretty good too. When I saw the trailer, a lot of it was just like I imagined, like the trailer park and dance club, for example. Yes, very fun 80s refs!

    Awesome movie! I liked the book better, but mostly because I had time to enjoy all of the 80s references. I know I missed a lot in the movie. I’m looking forward it to buying it so I can pause and look for them.

    I never read the book and have heard they (surprise) changed some things, but overall stuck with the book. It was a total blast for me and some of the best fun i've had at the movies in a while.

    All I can suggest is to just go in looking for pure fun. Grab the largest container of popcorn and enjoy!

    I just picked this up at Best Buy today on 4k HDR and it was awesome. The sound quality alone even if the movie was terrible is totally worth it. The movement and placement of sound might be one of the very best I've heard to date. Killer audio demo for sure.
    Really clever movie.

    My go to demo is the race scene and the explosion of the orb... Straight up foundation movers

    Watching those scenes at reference is like a gym visit

    I really enjoyed the movie too
