Acting/ Performance

Comments: 
Sometimes voice acting doesn't translate to on-screen acting, and I think some of the actors in this film were good voice actors, but when they had to leave the Oasis and perform in the real world, they were just lacking. 

Writing/Screenplay

Comments: 
This story is both simple and extraordinary. It creates this extravagant, extraordinary world and concept, but presents a simple adventure story within that world where there is a clear good guy and clear bad guys. It has a good balance between humor and seriousness, but some jokes felt forced and at times the story felt a bit rushed, particularly the relationship between Parzival and Artemis.

Cinematography

Comments:
This is the type of film that was made for the big screen. It's really a visual masterpiece. If you can see this movie, in IMAX 3D, you can see it in it's full glory. 

Costume Design

Comments:
 I think costumes were similar enough to clothing today, since this films takes place a few decades later, but also felt like the characters dressed like people that don't really care, because they don't spend much time in the realm world anyway. but obviously a lot of thought into the design of the costumes in the Oasis. They also created the futuristic feel with the Bot suits and Sixers uniforms.  

Editing/Special Effects

Comments:
The designers and editors did an excellent hob of creating the Oasis - a virtual reality that felt real but still looked unreal. As I said before, this film is a visual masterpiece, and that's a large part due to the special effects!

Sound/Music

Comments: 
An ode to 80's pop culture - music was not only fitting, but also added value to the scenes. 


Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 4.3/5.0

Recommendation: Watch!😏  

Ready Player One is a fast paced, fun adventure ride! This film packs in a lot of action and humor in a vivid fantasy world. It's a good story with a good message. I wouldn't say this film is a must-see for everyone. It's a good movie, but if you're not already a fan of this genre, then this film won't change that. Overall, there is nothing too exceptional about this film, except for the visuals. The visuals is the one outstanding quality of this film. It is really stunning, and in my opinion, all it's magnificence is only captured on the big screen - and I mean the biggest screen! If you watch this movie, I recommend seeing it in IMAX 3D. It really makes a difference!


Au Revoir,
