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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

The Girl With All The Gifts (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: The Girl With All The Gifts Year: 2016 Genre: Drama, Horror, Sci-fi Directed By: Colm McCarthy Starring: Sennia Nanua, Fisayo Akinade, Dominique Tipper About:  A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 My Review: Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch. I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the w

A Letter For The King- Tonke Dragt (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: The Letter For The King Author: Tonke Dragt Genre: fiction, adventure Published By: Pushkin Children's Books Published Year: 1962 My Review: I managed to get this book from NetGalley for an honest review and I am so glad that I did choose this book to read. This book is put into a prologue and eight different sections which indicate where in the story the characters are as well as chapter titles to make the reader have some idea what the chapter they are reading about. Prologue: In this part of the book the reader is made to understand the past of Dagonaut also how the knights are appointed to the king and why there are five boys in a chapel just outside of the town who is doing a vigil. This is a great way to let the reader understand how the following boys are where they are and makes the reader wonder which of these boys are going to be going on an adventure and how if they are so close to the king this would be a long book.
