Just read the book. 80's nostalgia porn. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Hope the movie is half as fun.

For those who haven't read it the audiobook is excellent.

looks like the movie is going to spend a lot more time on life in the Oasis than I'd hoped.

I thought the most interesting thing about the books was the interactions in real life and how he navigated that.

As for the book itself, eh, it was a little too 'young adult fiction' for my tastes. Had too much of that teenage love angst and Twilight vibe to it. By about 2/3 of the way in, I realized I was just reading it because I was pot committed and not because I was actually enjoying it.

But it had a lot of interesting movie potential (building the world could be very cool), it just looks like they tipped the balance too much towards VR based on the trailer.

I loved the book. And I generally don't like YA stuff.

I did not, however, like Cline's next book ("Armada"). I didn't even finish it.

Where RP1 actually worked the pop culture stuff into the story, it felt like in Armada he was just throwing out nostalgic things for the sake of doing so. It got to the point where it was embarrassingly obvious that the references were contrived just to make the audience happy.

I think the final straw for me--although I had already been rolling my eyes for chapters--was when aliens overran the moon base and one guy went down fighting while quoting Khan from Star Trek (in turn a quote from Moby Dick).

Nobody, in their last moments as they were being obliterated by aliens, would have the presence of mind to spew Star Trek quotes.

At that point, he went too far, and I just shut the book. I had already been reading it more out of a sense of duty to finish the thing as opposed to actually enjoying it.

Saw it last night. I thought it was pretty decent. For the record, I didn't read the book.

Armada was a pretty blatant rip off of Enders Game, mixed in with a bit of The Last Starfighter.

Didn’t read the book. I thought it was a good fun movie. Really enjoyed all the pop culture references from music, TV and movies circa 1975-early 1990’s throughout the movie. Not Easter egg stuff but major parts of the movie are set in other famous movie sets, used their props and costumes.

CGI was state of the art and well directed. Spielberg knows how to make these movies with his eyes closed. It’s just a fun popcorn movie.

Anyone see it in IMAX 3D? My daughter wants to see it tomorrow at Universal.

We saw “A Wrinkle In Time” tonight.

One thing about Kizer: I think Notre Dame was so much of a shitshow, overrated program that he could have some untapped potential in a more stable environment. I like his talent the most out of all these guys.

How was that? I loved the book when I was a kid, but the reviews of the movie have been pretty bad.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Ready Player One. The book was a fun trip down memory lane.
