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:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

About: A governess uses magic to rein in the behavior of seven ne'er-do-well children in her charge.

My Review:
Having been unwell for the last week I thought I would cheer myself up by watching Nanny McPhee, this is a film which was a big part of my childhood and never fails to make me happy.

I think that by showing how bad the children are at the start of the film is key for this movie but also getting to understand that they are only being bad in order to get their father's attention as they don't get any now that their mother has died. By having Nanny McPhee as someone who understands this but helps to teach the children how to be polite, go to bed when they are asked and more some without her intentions she really helps to change the children and make them into a happy family. I also th…
