[music]. oh my god we just got back from ready . player one the and and i'm like probably . the first one to have a review out this . is super exciting i've actually never . gotten in front of everybody. it's because they came to austin texas . my hometown south by southwest . they had steven spielberg there they had . much the entire cast it was it was an . awesome event i don't know i was the . sort of the hype i didn't want to get . this this hype you know i was like i. want to stay objective here i was like . okay you know this is great seeing . steven spielberg one of my idols you . know you wanted to be a director you . know for a long period in my life and so . getting to meet hammond and see him like . in front of my face was awesome so i had . not to let that you know change my . opinion of the film and i gotta say . there was even some technical . difficulties during the climax of the . film which i think actually ends up . making it better i'll share that story . with you later but this is going to be a . non spoiler review for ready player one. because this was the first time an . audience outside the studio got to see . it yeah i mean there was family members . of even the cast members behind us which . i didn't realized the main characters. from austin's yes an austin garrison - . yes so austin just representing i'm so . happy that they had the premiere here um . that he asked us hey you know try not to . spread i mean don't be this is almost a . month early and there are some really . good surprises in here and some spoilers . and stuff so we usually do a spoiler . section i'm gonna hold that sport we . will do one but i'm holding it until the . film actually releases so this is a . non-spoiler review and i'll share a . little bit of the opening sort of q&a . like steven introducing the film and . stuff like that and then later on share . a q&a with the audience that they had . afterwards so whole lot of extra content . here for you today because they came to . austin but brasstacks does you know . do game films they're friggin awful . they're terrible they have bad. reputation industry butter a no that's a . guilty pleasure love rolls you guilty . pleasure i love mortal kombat and by the . way boy mortal kombat and ok so goddamn . it alright however your gay movies oh . well they're terrible you're awful but . basically this is one of the best no . this is the best in my opinion the best . video game movie i've seen and it's not . just video games it's a wonderful love . letter from mr. spielberg to pop culture. to gaming to my childhood even to some . of his films yeah and i just had a great . experience watching this thing it is . you're probably gonna hear this a lot . but it is so much fun and the reason . being is because it feels like a video . game but not in you know how critics use . that as a bad word some jealous this is . a video game you know when they're . watching a movie like it's a bad thing . and in those cases it is but here it's . actually a good thing this is an . extended video game cutscene which is . always an insult but with steven. spielberg it's a it's a compliment it is . you know every gamer should see this . film if you're a gamer go out and see . this thing i'm already giving it a . badass seal of approval okay right up . right up front i'll give you my final . verdict where it ends up and i'm giving . bad a seal of approvals to seixas nines . to tens but i do think of your gamer you . should go out and see this film it's got . so much to satisfy your soul pretty much . anybody can enjoy this movie yeah not. just gamers bit so we have the round . table of opinions here alex has seen the . book or not look yes i've seen it then . he opened it and then read the words. inside some of . and listen to the audiobook which i hear . is also really really good . which steven spielberg's wife has also . read apparently which kind of pushed him . to to you know do the film and i haven't . read the book at all you know nothing . about it . i saw the trailers and i was like mm-hmm . you know me the reference this is gonna . be the member barry's the movie remember . this you remember dad and it kind of is . that a little bit but it's done in the . right way that's what it's very tasteful . if you read the book i was actually so . worried about the trailer when it came . out because i did read the book and i . recognized nothing in the trailer it's . like i don't remember any of this like . none of this is in the book there's some . there's a couples cutscenes where yeah . they had to include cuz it's a really . important part of the story but there's . a lot of the trailers like none of this . is here like nothing at all. are you serious so so this movie without . spoilers is much different from it was . something that you know they talked a . little bit about the q&a that they . wanted to make sure that it's a . different medium and so you can't just . go i'm gonna make up take this book and . translate it directly into a movie page . 4 page worth word because and they . specifically said this is where. hollywood fails. mm-hmm and so everyone had nothing but . good things to say about spielberg i . mean mainly cuz he was there but . everybody was wrong yeah because they . said look he made sure that the buddy . like the the translating into a movie. was something that was really important . yeah and you know you also have a . different perspective you read the book . okay and you have you played a lot of . the more recent video games that were . shown off do you think this film stands . on its own separate from the book or the . video game as it's just a movie watcher . yes i saw a whole lot of things that you . know you can reference from the 80s . movies back into you know nowadays . there's an overwatch character in it . that most of the people who play the . game they're gonna be extremely excited . to see running about but it was . really cool it's very well done honestly . as the gamer as somebody who loves . action as somebody who loves a lot of . these you know sequences i was worried. that you know they would sort of use it . and throw it away and in a disingenuous . way but here it felt like it was a . loving way it's almost as if spielberg . was a gamer himself and sort of but i . well he actually did say i play video . games since he may be 1974 he was . jumping jaws yeah he was playing pong . yeah and like that was something that is . really important to somebody again . culturally and and it's not just that he. said that right and i'm eating it up as . a line that he's giving me but i'm . telling you as a gamer i can feel that . translate to the screen unlike a lot of . other movies where you see these types . of references and you feel it doesn't . translate well so okay but let how about . this let's talk about the fact that . because they are in the oasis which is . this you know virtual reality world . essentially let's talk about the cgi how . did you feel about a lot of the cgi in . the film you know it was a lot in the . beginning i was worried that it was just . gonna be something that the entire movie . was gonna be like that but after . probably 10-15 minutes i just didn't . even notice it i mean you know that it's . cgi but you stopped caring there was a . couple scenes where it's almost . gratuitous we really need like this much . these are there's many effects i mean . other than it looking cool but they did . a lot of interesting things with with . moving the camera or like just the point . of view in the cg that i felt if you . have vertigo you can't watch this the . first half-hour in this movie you can't . no it's not that bad no it forum no it's . not that bad it's done where i can see . stuff like whereas resident evil . extinction will move the camera and do . stupid that you can't see here i can . feel he's doing things that he wouldn't. normally be able to do if the entire . film was live-action he wanted to play . in this video game space where a lot of . video game cinematics play with what . they do in the movie space and it felt. like this great sort of you know . turn back back and forth and and that . stephen was spielberg was feeling. comfortable in this area and sort of . paying homage to what videogames can do . and going a little more grandiose so in . my opinion all the cgi was fantastic it . was great-looking it was on the level as . for me avatar i feel a lot of avatar in . this film but actually liked this film . better than avatar that's how much i . liked it and it might have be the . nostalgia might be all the gaming it . might be all the franchise's that was . getting to me but i do think it was a . good story too but what did what did you . feel about the cgi like really cool . things like when they're you know . spinning around dancing the effects and. then you know they turn the camera this . way and you're just like wow you know . honestly i wouldn't have seen that done . very well in other movies yeah it hasn't . been done or way it has been done but . but yeah sometimes it can it can get . screwed up but it's not screwed up here . and i will say this do you think that . before watching this series we'll see if . you agree these characters i was like . this guy looks stupid and this character. you with the big eyes and the small . mouth they trying to do an avatar thing . and all the individual characters they . were putting him in these like nostalgia . posters and i was like these characters. are gonna be dumb i'm just gonna hate . the way they look but over time as i was . launching the film it wouldn't be over . like i didn't hate the character designs . like i expected that i would and i think . that's because of the good characters . behind those design they did a whole lot . of good story building behind it so you . can see why they chose how they looked. in the game like oh yes you know they . had two differe
