"You know he did you know minority report and then catch me if you can now ready player one is based on the two thousand one bestseller rating by ernest cline this this book was loaded pop culture references many of those references were to steven spielberg's own movies which made him a shooin to direct the feature version of this movie it's almost like the author was basically begging you please the wreck my well it must be a good book because he's not going to take on crap and ready player one that's when you are in a playing video game right like ready player one like i understand the title i i'm like ready player one that's weird i'm not a gearbox person i'm not a get whatever they call video nerd so i didn't understand the title so it's is it about playing video like is it about takes place there twenty forty five when there's so much overpopulation and you know the infrastructure is crumbling at the same time the technology has advanced so you got a little bit of that sort of like blade runner feel to it in terms of like it's it's a little bleak and just copy and but it's also a the technology it's fantastic now people escape from reality in virtual reality you know playing video games like real life video games where they can pretend to be someone else in escape from reality which you know not not a bad thing to do these days by you know as far as a special effects driven spectacle the movie is a lot of fun the special effects are fantastic it it feels like a ride but the story and i read the book and i still felt like the story was a little confusing because the book is very layered and so is the movie the movie tries so hard to catch her everything from the book that feels pretty dense a little too complex than it should be a movie like this and there are so many pop culture moments and references in the film like a ton of them that they become overwhelming and you're you're too busy trying to spot it like sort of like easter eggs and everything that you you you care less about the story which isn't all that great to begin with and i it sounds like.

"This is a pm hey surprise it's me molly earlier this week you remember we talked to ernest klein the author of the book ready player one and screenwriter on the movie that comes out this weekend there was a little part we left out because it's a tiny bit of a spoiler about a really great scene in the movie so if you haven't seen it yet and you don't wanna know stop listening now but if you do want to know it is a fun exchange about sort of a key change in one of the challenges here's me and ernest cline think of this as your own little ready player one easter egg you know they're obviously are a lot of changes in the movie compared to the book the challenges are all different and even the big movie scene changed from featuring wargames two featuring the shining did you just want to try something new could you not get the rights to war games like why shining well you know there are a lot of things in the book that will work in a novel things that will work in a novel that won't work in film because they're different mediums with completely different strengths and weaknesses and you can have somebody stand that an old pacman game for a couple of hours trying to play a perfect game in a novel but movie i think it would stop that dead so we ended up reimagining a lot of the challenges to make them more cinematic and you know we had talked about going into one of the movies mentioned in the book with blade runner and though even though warner brothers on that and you know steven was friends with release god and had been on the set of plate runner it's still there were legal problems that just made it impossible to to do blade runner and we talked about money python and war games you know but what we settled upon us we wanted a film like break bladerunner that had like a unique visual style that would be familiar to you know pretty much anyone who had ever watched movies because once the characters go into that film we wanted to you know everyone to have this feeling of going into a familiar place and so we made a list of other eighties movies that we thought kind of fit that criteria but once stephen saw the shining he had an instant.

"The other thing that went went out is that there's a danger to inundating saturating the screen with as much geek culture as is happening here because while key culture is resonates with people in a in a deep way to the subset of people that does it's vast which means that not everything i see on screen is going to end on me the way it landed on somebody you know three seats down so there's a big moment toward the end not gonna spoil it but like we're waiting for one of the characters to show up and when he does show up over there six seats behind me somebody went and i had no idea what i was looking at none me i had no looking at that's a danger this thing is is not going to automatically enter you now you'll be able to go back and freeze frame and there will be an objective obsessive categorization of every moment every frame but it's not here yet it's a really interesting dangerous though because there's a gig social fallacy that essentially if you love the culture i love you are a good person like we we must be friends because we like the same things and this movie is all about laying out all of these references and packing them in there's a long segment in the middle which i'm also not going to spoil but which hit perfectly home for me because it involves the characters just kind of moving into and living in for a little while something that i know very well and enjoy and it's something that really wasn't referenced in the book so it felt fresh to me it was unexpected the audience i saw this movie with loved every second of it if you haven't seen the movie in question it's probably a what seven to ten minutes of references that you're not gonna get and signifier you're not going to care about but i feel like in our clients world if you don't get the joke if you don't get the reference it's because you're really you're not necessarily a good person ernest cline like person i don't know because i i watched this movie i brought my fourteen year old daughter to the screening and she had not seen the piece of work that you are referencing tasha we're not giving it away.
