Ready Player One ★★★½

April 3rd, 2018 was the last time I saw my brother before be would pass away 3 days later. The last thing we did together was see this in theaters with a couple friends.

My brother was a big Mortal Kombat fan and I'll be watching video game movies leading up to its release. I figured I'd start with this.

My brother hated the song Jump by Van Halen and this opens with that song. I remember him just shrugging and smiling and going along with it.

This is about a thousand video game, movie and music references crammed into a 2 hour movie. It's very silly. I don't care about the lead actor. I don't care about the events that occur in the real world. The video game stuff is fun. The action is fun.

I like this movie. It's not great but it's incredibly important to me.
