If you want to watch an over the top Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film you’ll find it here.
Ready Player One didn’t do what I expected. While the concept of a computer game being the centre of the worlds universe, sounds interesting the movie didn’t deliver in ways it could have.
The plotline of the movie is based on the novel by Earnest Cline which is an excellent novel in comparison to the movie. Anyway, the film is about a dystopian 2044, following a young man named Wade Watts on his search for an Easter egg in a mega global virtual reality game. Upon obtaining the egg, the character will inherit the game creator’s fortune.
It was far too predictable, and the narration at the start of the movie went on far too long. Give the people a chance to understand the film through the action rather than a voiceover explaining everything in the first 15 minutes.
The orphan storyline has been done from Harry Potter to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to name a few, and while the special effects are fantastic, the plotline drags.
However, this film is excellent for kids its engaging and the visuals are there. However, the acting at times felt like a tv film rather than a cinema release.
I had high hopes for this movie, but it just fell flat. I can’t say it was terrible there were some nostalgic elements to the film, and the reference to what the future may be like was appreciated, but the movie is far too cheesy with Disney style villains.
