Plenty to discuss in this Movie Vs. Ready Player One episode. As I mention in the show, not much survives from the book to the movie. So, first, I give a synopsis of the movie. I started simply by listing things I noticed from the movie. Then, I mostly noticed how different it was and that a new synopsis might be necessary.
I then talk about those differences and what they mean for the movie. After that, I discuss the themes from the book that made it into the movie. Obviously, the anti-capitalism gets toned down majorly. However, if you read the book many of the other themes show up in some form or another.
Speaking of the book, if you never read the book, read the book! Then, come back to listen to the rest of Noob’s Book Club: Ready Player One. After that, come back so that we can have a discussion about it. And, with Movie Vs. Ready Player One, the series comes to a conclusion.
Next up, I promised Dragons of Fate. Because we are big time here at 2 Generations Gaming, I received the book a day early. Actually, I just think someone messed up a shipping date. But, I’ll take it. So, I read the first three chapters and the first installment arrives on August 15th. Talk to you then!
