Ready Player One (film review)

Film: Ready Player One
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-fi
Starring: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn
About: When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.

My Review:
Having heard amazing things about this film and that it has a lot of references to other movies, books and games I couldn't help but go to the cinema at the first opportunity I had to go and see this film.

Ready Player One is about a group of people who are in a virtual reality game called the OASIS and tries to find the three keys in which the dead creator has made to obtain his fortune and control of the OASIS. However, another company are also after the winnings who are a rival and go after the people in the real world as well as in the virtual world.

I personally loved this film, with loads of references to books, movies and games this made me really excited throughout the film as a fan of most of the references that they made. As well as this having it in a virtual reality because there isn't anything in the real world I thought was an amazing concept as virtual reality is becoming a thing of the present time we are currently living in and could be how the world really becomes in the next couple of decades. I did find hat the acting choices were also done really well and having seen the film I couldn't think of a better cast.

With making an overall message showing that we need to take more of an interest and be more in the real world instead of virtual world which I thought was really fitting for a world which is now being more online and is how most people find new friends etc. I would highly recommend this film to everyone as it has something for everybody wither it's love, adventure, animation and comedy all in one movie.

I will definitely be now checking out the book and really hope it is as good as the film or even better than it! One of my favourite movies of 2018 so far!

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…

My Review:
Wanting to start watching Christmas movies with it being the middle of December I thought I would start with a movie in which was on Netflix which has been on my list recently called Elliot The Littlest Reindeer. With a cast of voice actors in which I already liked I hoped that this would be something I would enjoy and I am glad I was not mistaken as the movie ended up being rather cute and something I enjoyed more than I expected.

I thought by showing how Santa's reindeer was able to retire and have other reindeer take their place was rather a good concept especially as it showed how…

My Review:
From the moment that this was released onto Netflix I was excited about this movie especially as it seemed to be different from the usual Christmas movies in which have come out before. From my excitement I was scared that maybe I had hyped it up a little too much for myself and I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I thought but I am so glad I was wrong. I loved this movie and it was different from other films I had seen and made me captivated throughout and make me feel like this is a film in which everyone needs to see and e…
