    So yesterday I went to see Ready Player One, and despite Twitter and the rest of the internet ready to disparage it completely before its release, I actually thought it was pretty good. To reiterate what I mentioned on Twitter, it's not high cinema in any form but it is a fun popcorn flick that's made in the same spirit as some of Spielberg's films from the '80s and '90s (The Goonies, Hook, Jurassic Park etc.). There's a surprising amount of self-aware humor in it; despite the fact that the futuristic world has major issues (overpopulation has caused people to resort to spending most of their time in a VR-simulated world where even its currency is more widely used than in the real world), it never gets too serious for its own good and heavy-handed with its themes. At the end of the day, it's mostly about visually-intense action-packed sequences and the protagonists reaching the easter egg built into the game before the movie's antagonist can (an evil corporation bent on gaining control of "The Oasis" and thus the world). It's a fun experience all-around, and I definitely recommend either seeing it in 70mm or IMAX 3D if you can. The 3D is SURPRISINGLY good in this as is the sound. Not lying when I say this is probably the most impressed I've been from hearing the sound in a movie in a long time; this one will get nominated for visual and sound Oscars for sure this year. Anyhow, go see it if you're on the fence or interested. It's pretty good. Have any of you seen it yet? If so, what did you think of it?

    It looks pretty cool I don't understand why people always gotta hate on things. I rarely get to the theaters and my TV does not have 3D like my old one did but this looks like a nice move to pick up in 4K. I wish my TV had as nice a sound system as my PC does with it's 7.1.2 Atmos speakers and receiver but hopefully, the 5.1 speakers will be fine.
