    Ready Player One

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    To give some background. I'm super into VR. I've read the book twice. I have a signed copy. I adored snowcrash, my parents raised me on Spielberg and the 80s. It's like this book was written for me.

    This movie, I enjoyed. That's my gut reaction. I enjoyed the second puzzle, I enjoyed many parts of the first half, and never found myself bored. Skipping how the book handled the school and streamlining down to just the keys made sense…

    Like a bad twilight zone episode, yet very fun to watch

    ★★★★½

    This movie had two distinct halves. I wish we received 2 movies so each half could be explored more thoroughly.

    The Wicker Man

    ★★★★

    Very, very 70's movie. A lawful, chaste, christian clashes with a sexual, polythestic culture. Plenty of folk music and nudity. In some ways reminded me of Zardoz.

    The presentation of the strange society is handled well. You follow the officer as he gradually learns about their beliefs, and the consistent stream of new, strange information plays well with an audience that does not yet know the rules of this story. Is she a rabbit? Is it a metaphor? Or something else? It definitely kept me guessing.
